Putting Problems...help!

For myself I was a decent putter, but never got good until I made the switch and focused on toe down putting.  If you are toe up, your alignment and eyeline may be working against each other.  changing the stroke or getting a putter like a cleveland, or Seemore with alignment aids that work no matter how you hold your putter.

You sure about that lie angle?

Yeah I think it has to do with some other angle maybe hosel or something like that

Without seeing you putt can't really diagnose whats wrong. However 2 things I did that improved my putting greatly is got a cameron golo 5 (switched from a blade) and keeping my head down. I used to try to watch the ball. Now I keep looking at the same spot where the ball was for a 3 count. Its helped, I have had one 3 putt in my last 4 rounds since focusing on this

Followed your advice today kept my head down well after the stroke really improved my putting. I didn't while every putt but had 31 putts which is really good for me. Made a bunch of 1 putts. I really appreciate your help there now I can only get better from here. The course I play on has grain so understanding how that looks helped as well.

See if you can find a SeeMore instructor in your area, they can fit you for a putter and give you some lessons.

 

You can also look for an aim point clinic to learn more about reading greens.

I've been working on my putting this year. I've always had a mallet or mid mallet.

 

Got a simple 8802 Style putter and it's like putting on train tracks when I'm on.

 

I tried a bunch this year, and this one is the only I feel like it isn't fighting my Ugly putting stroke.

There are a ton of different brands. If you are looking for new, there is the Wilson 8802, Ping Tess... google 8802 style putters. You'll find at least 50 different kinds. They are all roughly the same weight, and construction.

Something must be lost in translation, that's an impossible lie angle.

Did pretty good yesterday 31 putts shot 81 had one 3 putt and a bunch of one putts I know this statistic really doesn't give you a good picture. I realized while in the iPing app that I consistently leave the face 1* open at impact so I purposely aimed slightly more left that intended line. Looked at my score card had six 1 putts which I think is probably the best way to know if I putted well.

I used to caddy for Jack Toski, of the famous Toski brothers.  He was Bob's oldest brother.  He also was my first teacher of the game.  One day while in college I complained to him that my putting was terrible.  He simply said "learn to hit it closer to the hole"

 

There's a lot of truth to that but I over came weak putting with much work and a "grip" change.  In the 1980's I went cross handed.   (that was before they called it left hand low)   I also spent hours and hours practicing...mostly 10' and in.  A friend used a chalk line on a level area of the green and I spend hours concentrating on rolling the ball down that line.  I still imagine starting my putts along that line.

 

I also used many drills but found the most effective were ones that when you missed, you had to start over.  I helps when you really need to make one to go home...or win a match!

 

Good luck....find a flat stick you like....and put in the work.  You won't regret it!!

[emoji1375] You reminded me!! I used to put left handed to get my right eye closer to my target. Can't remember if it worked, obviously not because I'm putting right handed now!

What has really helped me is learning about eye dominance in putting. I'm a right eye dominant right hander and moving the ball to the middle of my stance and using a minimal offset putter has helped a ton.
