    It starts with good course management god driving off the tee . Then comes the approach shots and knowing how to attack the pin . Knowing where to put the ball makes for easier putting and birdie putts . 

    So work on your pitch punch and flop shots . Once you learn how to use your wedges with these 3 shot types , it will be easier scoring . As a misding player I play cross winds by clicking either early or late depending on the wind . L-R winds you click early and R-L winds you click late .

    Even when moving the marker depending on winds its the same way . Only I will move my marker towards the winds direction . L-R winds move marker towards the left and if needed click early . R-L winds move the marker to the right as needed and click late .

    Its a technique that you will have to practice in order to get good at it . But it works for me .and its easy to learn to do .

    There are several threads here and some good youtube videos by some players on accounting for wind.  You can search youtube for "WGT" and "wind" and probably find some.

    I use a method described well by Young46 in his videos.  He has some other good ones as well.  Just search "WGT" and you will find a lot of videos.
