Not a Short Putt, but Not a Long Putt...
 
What do you do when you're at that distance where you know your push-putt will fall 10' short, but you know your spin-putt will burn way past the basket?

Hyzer putt or a jump putt.

Work on getting those two to overlap so that isn't an issue. ;)

It sounds like you need to figure out how to get more power on your push putt. Make sure you're releasing flat (not nose down) and remember you get your power from your weight shift.

I'm not a spin putt expert, but there may be ways to improve your "touch" with your spin putt to keep from blowing by so bad.

Getting more power behind my push-putt is exactly what I need to do.

How exactly does one go about doing that?

I almost always spin putts, even from ten feet. The only way I pitch putt if I have to go around/over something. and even then, I'll take a spin hyzer or anhyzer if it's an option. For me most of the time, pitch putting is just giving it a chance but not really going for it. It's like throwing at the basket while laying up. I've been doing it for a while now, and even if I happen to miss the basket my comeback shot will generally go in. It's increased my confidence circle to about 40 feet, and I go for almost everything from 130 now.

I am not saying my way isn't right or wrong, it's just my way. My suggestion for pitch putting further, is to time you rocking and release better. It's all about weight transfer the further you get out.

What I do is handcuff myself so my spin putt still doesn't have a ton of power. Listen to Garublador though. What distances are you changing over from a push to a spin at?

i think i agree with this (im not keen on all sorts of terminology(sp?)) and what grabulator said as well....i kinda combo the two and toss it a little higher and to the right and let it fall naturally and it wont fly past the basket and if you miss the putt it usually just stops where it lands, somewhere very close to the basket instead of 10+ feet away, so you dont have to putt twice...USUALLY lol

I do this in combination with a hyzer putt, but I really need to work on my push putt distance so its all hyzer putt or push.
