Question for you putter experts

So you are pushing putts.   If you are using your left arm/hand a bit more it could result in a push because the putter you aren't able to bring the putter through to the right side.  My suggestion would be to work on rotating the putter through the finish to get the putter through to your right side.

Tony's left handed.

Tony's left handed.

Yep. I tried to write my comment from that perspective. Said he was missing left which is a push. Also indicated he may be a little more left side dominant. High rotation putter with left miss may mean he needs to work on getting the putter through to the right side. Basically the body prevents the left arm from getting the putter completely through and the face is left open. His new low rotation stroke may not help since he is probably still leaving the face open. Completing the stoke by trying to move the putter back inside the target line may help bring the ball back to the right.

 

More words here but based on your comment I tried to explain in more detail.

That's an interesting comment. I'll have to work on that on my basement putting green

I think putters are just such a personal feel its hard to generalize. As with a shaft different techniques fit different specs. I am 6'0 tall and have always been fit into a 34" length, just this year I tried a 35" and just rolled the ball so much better. I kind of don't want to go get fitted on it as I am sure my eyes are inside the ball

I am 5'10, use a 35” putter, and my eyes are inside the ball. I was fit to my specs based on how I see the putts line. There are lots of ways to fit a putter. Feel is important but I also believe firing is just as important.

 

I want the putter that helps me roll the ball the best and has enough feel that I can tell when I don't hit the ball correctly.
