When struggling with putter contact I stick a bandaid near the toe and heal, on each side of the sweetspot that only leaves a small part of the sweetspot exposed.  If you miss the sweetspot and hit the ball on the cushion of the bandaid you know it immediately and the ball goes halfway to the hole.

The basics of putting are keeping your core/head rock still, so as long as you do that find a way to set up where you can see the line and make a repeatable stroke.  Don't limit yourself to the "conventional" wisdom on setup and ball position - find a way to see the line and let your inner athlete out to roll it on that line.

Dave Edel from Edel Putters has a podcast out that talks about different things concerning putting and putters in general.  It's a pretty good listen.  During one of the episodes, he talked about the best drill to do for putting.  He mentioned simply putting a string down, standing 15 feet away and consistently hitting the ball on the string will make your putting significantly better...

It seems like an over simplification, but if you can consistently hit your distance aim will come, maybe is the thinking.  

Either way, it's a cheap and easy drill that can be done.

Part of the Edel fitting is rolling a ball to the 15 foot string.  I have done an edel fitting and found it very comprehensive and informative.     Just rolling to a 15 foot string will do no more than rolling to a 10 foot string other than groove that single length.   Speed is definitely the main factor that you need to work on since rolling the ball at a desired speed is crucial in making a putt.   You can "aim" perfectly but if you roll the ball at the wrong speed it probably won't go in.    Even if you control speed,  you still have to practice face control to make sure that the ball goes on your intended line.    There are many skills that must be mastered in putting;  speed is definitely one of the top.

I put it as a statement for some help, not a silver bullet fix.  I even stated it might be an oversimplification.  It's a place to start.  

I too have gone through an Edel fitting and agree it's really thorough.
