I do a lot of Straddle Putts and when you are close they just get easier.
Try out the Straddle Putt and see if you like it up close. Even if it doesn't work too well it's always good to practice straddle putts as much as regular putts.
That Mark Ellis Confidence program is pretty good too. I've pointed people to it and it has helped a ton of people out that I know.
