Where to find putting videos?
 
I need help with putting. So much so that I'm ready to rebuild this part of my game from the ground up if necessary. Trouble is I haven't been able to find a decent video "how to". Not only am I looking for spin vs push advice I need help with where to aim, how to stand, etc.
I realize much of this is personal preference but do the "pros" have advice anywhere? I've seen a bunch of how to throw or get distance but not much on the most important part of the game (IMO).

Video from a Feldberg putting clinic. Very informative IMO.

Just search "putting techniques disc golf" on youtube. A ton will come up.

There's a bunch in here: Putting Styles Illustrated

This is a pretty good one:

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

This could be the best I've seen. Thank you!
Just looking for "putting" on YouTube or elsewhere leads to a lot of videos, many of which don't address the topics Feldberg did in this one...where to aim, how to grip and stand, how to move arms, etc.

Awesome. Thanks again.

So I got excited and just threw a few puts with the technique. This will probably take some time to get used to...but now it looks like a lame bird leaving my hand. Maybe I'm trying to throw a nuckleball? There has to be some sort of spin even with this "push". Doesn't there?

No probelm. It's one of the best putting videos out there. I need to get out and re-implement some of this stuff.

it isn't so much a 'spin' as it is a 'push'. Feld mentions the 'finger push' in the vid but really doesn't elaborate. I watched this vid 3 months ago and practiced these techniques constantly ever since. At first, I had the same 'lame duck' problem ur describing. Was totally aggrivated and extremely confused at the same time. But, after a couple days of practicing, I had that haleluyah moment! Finger push! All of a sudden, I was making putts with confidence and, most importantly, distance. The finger push works exactly as it sounds. Primarily using ur pointer finger. Don't just open ur grip when releasing the disc. When raising the disc up to ur release point, release ur thumb first and 'push' the disc forward with ur pointer finger. Granted this all happens extremely fast. I am now at a point where I use my other fingers to assist in the push aswell, especially on longer putts. I am so glad I have put the effort into this style. It has really transformed my game, at least with putting. Now if only I could figure a good driving style!!!...lol Anyway, good luck and keep watchin vids for assistance. Hope I was able to shed a little light

Yeah, you need some "finger spring."
