    To the OP, since a legit straight putt is nearly non-existent, I'll speak to any putt aimed inside the confines of the hole. Excepting those within 2' or so, which can most always be played straight, I'd guess I might have 2-3 putts per round that're "straight".

    I'm terrible at reading putts and way too often end up turning a straight putt in to one with break in my head. Even at my home course you would think I would know the reads by now but I always overthink it.

    2 of the 3 courses I play I would say a "straight" putt is pretty rare. Excluding inside two feet or so like others have said. The third course I actually do attempt to hit putts more firmly due to bumpy greens. There is nothing that frosts my ass more than a putt that is rolling on line but due to perfect speed gets thrown off by uneven Greens. I think I may be spoiled by my other two regular courses. Greens there are smooth true and fast. All that said while I consider myself a good putter..I tend to over read instead of under read breaks. So I try to not give up the hole (too much) on shorter to intermediate length putts. But straight. No. Not to many on the courses I play. Maybe one or two a round do I take dead aim.

    My home course has a lot of strait putts because the greens are usually like a tilted table top. If you're under the hole it's strait. Some courses though have a lot of undulation and there are no strait putts. I would guess down in Florida this is often the case because the courses dont have much slope so undulating the greens is a good challenge for putting, short game, and approach.

    The course I play the most has a ton of straight-ish putts. The greens are sloped but there isn't any undulation. The other course I play a lot straight putts are rare. The greens are fast, large, (like putting in a bathtub) with tons of undulation. For whatever reason I put better there.

    No straight putts on JCB course, the bent grass makes it even more slippy in some places
