Default Wind putting

A pro I hired last week taught me the upside down putt in a strong headwind. I've used it to good effect so far. Basically, throw high and right with a strong anny. The putter thrown upside down is extremely stable and turns hyzer immediately. Plus it drops like a stone. But it doesn't speed past the basket or roll away, and it CAN go in.

Today, I think I learned how to handle cross wind. Basically, I throw hyzer and left if the wind is coming from the left, and anny and right if from the right. I hold my putter out in that angle and feel how strongly and fast the wind is pushing the putter left or right. The rest seems pretty easy from there.

How do you deal with wind?

What I do:
headwind-aim right at the basket and drill the disc straight into it
tailwind-aim above the basket because the disc will drop quickly
R to L crosswind-anhyzer putt a litter firmer than I normally would for a given distance
L to R crosswind-hyzer putt a little firmer than I normally would at that distance.

Toughest for me is the R to L crosswind because it isn't easy for me to anhyzer putt, but I am working on it.

Here is some info on Putter selection, but not as much on technique, which is what you are really interested in.

Wind putter

Windy day putter with poll

Best weight for a putter thread mentions putting in wind.

depends on the range and wind direction. drill it up close. expose the flight plate and play the (cross) wind from farther out. aim low into a head wind and high with a tail.

on upside down putting:

if youre going for it from anything over 20' and air-ball...its gonna go long. best to only use that technique when you have no alternative.

I throw an ESP Zone hard and straight with nose down. It cuts through the wind pretty good.
