I never did either. But I watched a video with Climo talking about his putting warmup. He said that rapid fire for a few putts helps him with his "natural motion" of his putt. So I try to get a couple of them in there, helping me to hone in on my natural putting motion (which is really close to my 'take my time' putting motion, which it never was before.) and it's less rapid fire as fast i can. It is more of a 'Don't do any motion accept the final push towards the basket' (i normally rock forward, then back, then push toward basket). so i putt, start pulling my body back for another, grab the disc out of my left hand, and push it forward with no rest, no pausing, but NOT rushing.

That's my speciality as well.

One thing I've done with my son is play HORSE, like basketball, but with putters. Fun way to practice.

rapid firing also improves muscle memory.

Ok....I can honestly say I'm putting better. Certainly not up to expert level, but I'm now making 15 to 20 ft putts with confidence. The approaching north south has helped and setting my routine (like a basketball free throw) Has helped too. Really makes a difference when you aren't missing the short ones. I putt more of a hyzer style, so my main issue now is right to left winds. Anyway, great advice Randy.
