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.
