    I am ok with side winds or cross winds. But when its opposite wind even if i miss ding by fraction of mm either side... i am off from 6-10 yard

    I want to find a way that i dont miss more than 3 yard.

    Anyone have secret tip?

    Solutions are impacted by the ball and clubs used. Where you play, like oceans courses, influence the flight. Green elevations are another especially ball roll.  

    Two resources: TwistEd Root “Advanced Settings and Calibration of Shot Distance” on YouTube. WGT Mistress Colette profile page for her extensive tutorial.

    That is the best tip. You must miss ding it into the wind.  Even when compensating for 3-5 mph winds, any miss with the wind will move your ball away from where you are trying to land it.  

    im not sure what ball you use, but when I switched to a slower meter ball speed it drastically helped.  

    I have also found that on some holes to reduce risk and to reduce the amount of effect the wind has on the ball, go with full front spin. It keeps the ball lower, I use effectively on St Andrews hole 16 with the OOB to the right.
