You seem to rotate on your heel which is a good thing. Personally i think its a very difficult thing to learn. Id just work on what others have said about shifting forward. Also i saw you putting video. Looks like you use all arm. Try rocking back and forth with your legs or something with your lower body that you can do the exact same way everytime you put. It will help with follow through and accuracy immensely. good luck

I'm only using a small portion of my putting motion to control distance. I'm starting these putts at or very close to my weight forward position.

I did, but it was edited out. I'm using a little bit of leg, and it's moving in the right direction. I have problems with decelerating if I use a lot of leg close to the basket.

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.

It feels like I'm turning back later, but it doesn't look like it ... should my feet/hips/etc be turning back later in the run-up?

In other words, should my feet be at different angles on some/all of the steps?

Not getting your hips/weight transfer correct. The standstills show you transferring your weight from in front of you. The x-step shows you planting a bit too backward with the foot, and not properly braced and maintaing good posture on the front side and your shoulders get too far in front the hips, and the rear hip trails around. Your posture is also lost in the backswing on the rear side so that is where things start to go wrong.

Word.

There's a driving clinic vid out there somewhere that says something I interpreted as "it should feel like someone is pulling the disc back on the reachback". I guess I should forget I heard that?

On the shoulder bit, am I interpreting that correctly saying that my top "center" or focal point should be behind the lower center until the disc is gone?

Which step is to backwards? Backwards meaning toes pointed away from the target? And so they need to be pointed more at the target? I was thinking that would really help delay my reachback.

The disc should pull you into reachback, but not at the expense of posture and leverage from the hips. You are overheaving it back. You can use a door frame and play around with max reachback and move your body around to find where you get the most leverage on the door frame through your hips, as opposed to the door frame pulling you back. It's basically starting the lawn mower.

From a pure power perspective the shoulders should always be leveraged behind the hips dynamically. Just looking at a static position doesn't tell the story, because the shoulders can be visually in front of the hips, but still leveraged from them.

Plant step is too backward/far compared to the hip/spine to properly brace. The door frame should help this. You will probably feel more upright.
