If you're putting in a strong wind, you could learn from Padraig
One of the most notable things about the way Padraig Harrington putts is the wide stance he adopts, with his feet much further than shoulder width apart.

You may not want to copy him in every situation but one time his approach works particularly well is when he's battling in a strong wind, and during the winter that's something we're all likely to face.

Opening up a wider stance gives you a much firmer and more solid base. However, standing with your feet further apart will cause you to bend over more from the waist, so you also need to be a little further back from the ball.
