I cross hand putt and use my right hand to guide and control the speed. What does everyone else do? :help:

I've tried just about every putting stroke there is , but due to a very dominant left eye, I return to the Nicklaus type-hunched over, side saddle looking setup, and what most describe as a back and forth piston motion with the right arm. With this method I only use a face balanced putter.

 

:tongue:

Conventional putting grip and and inside to out putter motion. Try to concentrate on keeping the angle between my wrists through the stroke and make sure I have no wrist breakdown through impact resulting in a more consistant action.

For technique I like Utley (swing on a slight arc with soft wrists), for mental approach and speed control, I like Manuel de la Torre's advice in "Understanding the Golf Swing" (distance control HAS to be subconscious and instinctive).

I've tried long putters anchored at the sternum or belly, cross hand, conventional grip, lefty, lefty crosshand, Trevillion putting method, straight back and through, putt on an arc, down low grip up high grip, blah, blah blah. With all this I avg about the same 2 strokes per green. Sometimes 3 sometimes 1. Actually a strict avg a little above 2 strokes something like 2.14 last I checked. Not great but acceptable to me for now. Big thing for me is I can't seem to hit a green near the pin so I have plenty of long putts keeping my avg up.

 

What I found the best for me though it is all similar results is striaght back and through with a low grip one hand on shaft the other on grip on short putts anything over say 15 feet I use a higher grip on the club and putt on an arc.

 

I am left handed but play right handed and power the putt with the right hand and control with the left.

My putting is the best ive ever had it at the minute and i mean i was a very inconsistent putter, i wouldnt say im brilliant at the minute but im a hell of a lot better and my key thoughts are pretty much what ive been workin on in my full swing, and my improvements in my golf swing also have been pretty good too im hitting it straighter than ever and it all boils down to the theory of club connection!, when im puttin i try to keep the triangle or v for as long as possible i also try to get my right arm at setup closer to my right hip this is with full swing as well as putting this helps get my alignment squarer, after that i just stroke the putter back then through keeping the triangle it really works well.

I've had alot of problems recently, and I think it was more due to me breaking my wrist. So instead of my left index finger staying on the outside of my right hand, I decided to start putting with my left index finger overlapped by me left hand pinky and ring finger. It's alot easier to keep the face angle now, and once that happened I got used to the speed. I like it alot, and have easily dropped 4 putts per round in the past 2 months using this grip. I also usually hold the grip a little lower than normal and use the "straight and through."

You name a putter/method and I've tried it......conventional.....conventional with a normal grip.....with a conventional reverse overlap.......with a double overlap.......crosshand........split hand.......belly......long putter modified to go under he left arm.....belly putter.....cross and split like Langer......square to square....."ARC".....etc. You name it and I've trid it with the exception of the long putter.......most of the time NOT trying to find a way to putt, but, trying to find a BETTER way to putt .....:cheesy:

 

However, after all the experimentation it all comes down to this.......

 

Find the best method/grip/putter that allows YOU to ROLL the ball on the line YOU see in your mind and with a fine sense of speed........thats all there is to putting........:cheesy:

Likewise. A thought that helps me maintain the wrist angle is to keep my right elbow moving towards the hole after impact. This maintains the wrist angle and keeps the putter head moving towards the hole.

My back has been bothering me again so I have gone back to a Long putter. I have found that I can practice longer without back pain by using a long putter. I picked up a long rossa that is pretty solid.

Conventional with a reverse overlap grip. Key thoughts are to pick an intermediate target to putt to and to accelerate the putter through the ball.

Inter-locking grip! short backstroke....extended follow-through. As far as thinking about where to hit the ball, I see the line the ball must take to get in the hole, never thinking about how far one way or another I need to aim outside of the hole. I guess it makes me more of a feel putter doing things like that. People always say I'm a good putter, so there may be something to take away from that idea if you're having troubles.

Conventional Grip, small grip sizes (I like the CAmeron STudio Design grip), and pure Pendulum putting motion.

 

I try to setup in a very neutral position, with arms hanging down,f orming a "V", just like in these pictures. The article link explains most of my thoughts on putting setup:
