it does affect it but ever so lightly. Effect does come into play with longer putts and heavier winds... such as 75fter on sta with 26-30 wind. it may move it as much as 2-3 ft with side wind.
Good info Icon! Is there any effect on a putt with a headwind or tailwind?
Yes indeed, there is an impact with head and tail winds, especially in the higher winds seen at SA and RSG. At those courses if I have a 15 - 20 mph head- or tail-wind I add or subtract about 5% to total distance. If you have a strong tail wind and a downhill putt, you may want to take off even more!
The best way to see this in action is do some putting on SA #9; go to WGT COMMUNITY/ GOLF COURSES in the top menu bar and navigate to SA #9 and hit play now. Once on green, ignore the pin hit some putts directly into or away from the wind, using 100% of an appropriate putter scale to keep the ball on green. Since the green is Standard speed, you should get close to scale distance with no wind.
