I tried going from more in the middle but I ended up having a really hard time aiming my putt and shifting weight. My body is so used to pushing the putter from the right thigh/knee that when I start the putt from any other area I somehow try to compensate for it subconsciously and release off target.
yes exactly and that was my GF exact problem. it took her about 3 weeks to fully switch over and i don't think she would complain one bit about the switch. could just be her though
