Looking at the screen manpage:

"By default, screen tries to restore its old window sizes when
attaching to resizable terminals (those with "WS" in its description,
e.g. suncmd or some xterm)."

I don't know what terminal name Putty sends, but it seems that you can
A) put WS in the terminfo for that terminal name or B) maybe configure
Putty to send another terminal name (such as xterm).

Hope it helps.
