That's how I reach back on my putts as well. I notice once in a great while (usually on steep inclines) that my thigh gets in the way, but other than that I find it really comfortable. I just switch to a straddle on sloped surfaces since it gives me a more solid footing anyway.

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.
