    If you play the putting challenge you can see this very easily.   The long (260 foot) putt at STA and play 10 feet shorter or longer depending upon the wind direction and speed.  Most of the other putts on the challenge are less than 75 feet long and don't seem to be effected that much by wind but on some of the longer ones, you can see the movement by the wind on them.

    I wish I never would have read this. Now something else to think about.

    I tend to adjust for wind anything over 17mph and over 15ft

    SHRUDE:

    Yep! likewise, here. If putt is significantly up or downhill and wind is head or tail, I make a slight adjustment for anything over 10 ft and 10mph.

    My putting is so poor that I can only hope that the wind will auto adjust it for me.

    I don't think the wind will play an important role in a short putt. It could affect a long putt if it is a strong wind. This is just my opinion.
