After practicing my putting last night, I realized that it was about time to ask for some help. I know that practicing bad form when it comes to putting can actually be more detrimental to your game than not practicing at all.
I find that after changing multiple forms that I have adopted a straddle putt for which I have the most success with, however I hate changing to a regular stance for anything further out than 35'. Overall, I would be much more satisfied with a regular stance if I could become consistant with it.
Of course I have read your articles for putting many many times. One thing that I have noticed about watching many of the pros putting videos is that on their release, their putter seems to flutter. I can see that this could drastically reduce cut throughs (which seems to be a big problem of mine). I have been using a birdie grip for a long time now, and would hate to give that up, as it is most comfortable for me. However, my release seems very smooth and I never have any flutter whatsoever, even if I try.....
My accuracy is so terrible that I have gotten quite frustrated with it. Some days I can't even hit 15 footers. I would say that my putt most resembles a push putt, as I try to keep it in line with the basket, from my chest out to my release. I also use an anhyzer putt, but I believe I can switch to a hyzer putt if I truely needed to. (keeping it flat just doesn't seem to go well for me)
I have switched putters many times and have tried everything out there. I believe I have the most success with my old school classic aviars, big bead (I've had two of them since I was about 10 years old, about 13 years old). I'm not sure if the type of putter I use is relevant, but I thought I would mention it anyways.
I was wondering if you could give me any pointers. I know this may be difficult to identify what is wrong with my putt without seeing video of it, but I would appreciate any help/advice that I could get. Thanks again.
Practice, practice, practice. Especially with players that are better than you. It's one of the only ways to learn new things.
