If not, grip down or up on the putter to get your face in the cd. This indicates proper setup/length, therefore you might make more putts, also remember to bring it back half as much as you bring through and have good tempo, always. Also make sure your grip is not too hard, think that you are holding a baby bird and you don't want it to die in your grip or to fly away. this will help you I hope.

    Something else to double check- make sure your entire body (feet, hips, shoulders) are properly aligned. Sometimes I'll get a little drift in my putting stance and suddenly I can't make anything. Get everything parallel to the target line.

    All of these tips are solid, one thing not mentioned is to not move the head during impact to follow the ball. I will watch the top of the ball as I strike it and watch the spot where the ball was. Amazingly there will be a dark shadow where the ball was, I don't move my head to follow the track of the putt until I see that shadow.

    Also a couple of months ago in one of the golf magazines there was a tip to help with keeping the ball online and that is to feel like the club face is chasing after the ball after impact, this has been especially effective for me on shorter putts, give these a try.

    I saw a video where Ben Crenshaw said that most amateurs grip the putter too tightly. I noticed that Gripping the putter lightly allows me to feel the club head more which can help me diagnose the flaws. It also takes the wrists and arms out of the equation.

    Practice hitting putts to something smaller than the hole on the green, if you can hit something half that size when you practice then the hole seems really big compared to that.

    Wow this thread hit close to home. Last year I was a one and two putt monster. I could get teh ball to drop from anywhere on the green in two putts max. This year I'm turning 10' birdie putts into tripple bogie. Everything feels the same as last year, I just can't get anything to drop.

    I would have shot a 91 during Sunday's tournament if I putted like I did last year. Instead, I shot a 120.

    still no success? what kind of putting grip are you using? tried a different grip? different putter grip?

    Well, I changed putter, stance, grip, and got a Birdie Ball green for the basement. I won't be out on a course again until next Friday, but I'm going to putt as much as I can until then.

    What saved my putting was putting at the fringe from different distances to and to maintain the same exact tempo on each putt and adjusting the "backswing" for various distances, it kept me from getting frustrated when I miss the hole but It made me become more consistent on my speed and distances.
