Windy Day Emergency Putter?

I am playing today and the wind keeps getting stronger and stronger. I putt with a Wizard, which seems to do ok up to about 10 mph, but when gusts are above 20mph it just flies away from the chains. Wizards are the only putters I own, are there any discs you suggest to putt with on windy days that I may already own? Maybe something like a gator?

175 Champ Rhyno should do the trick- just try to find a grippy one so you can putt with it easier. Or check out some of Vibram's stuff for a similar feel...I think they have a putter more overstable than the Wizard, but not sure.

Made some putts last Saturday with a pretty strong headwind using my usual 170g Magic. Will say it made me focus a lot more when I realized I was in that situation.

I used my Zone for a ton of short putts and approach shots last weekend in a tourney and took second in AM. I'd say it saved me 2 strokes a round, no kidding.

Putt flat with your putter upside down for short headwind putts.
