Got paired with one of the best putters in NH for random dubs a few weeks ago. He is an arborist and had very recently suffered a head injury that left one eye swollen completely shut for a few days. In 18 holes, I think he was 4 out of 5 in the 30 to 40 foot range. I asked him if he was compensating for only having one eye. His response:

"I try to putt flat and level at the center of the chains."

You can try and take in all this advice and totally re tweak your form or just aim about a foot to the left? Might be hitting dead center after trying that??

Haha, I wish I could blame it on that, just a rushed post with a device i don't use a lot, I don't even drink. So it's just me being stoopid, no excuses.

Shots go to the right? Aim more to the left.

LOL I hear you! Its easy to get caught up with how everything is supposed to be done properly but applying it and it actually working for you takes practice, practice practice. I'd like to know how many hours Paul Mcbeth has spent practicing his putting to get it to where its at now?? 50ft in, he doesn't miss often. His arm just seem like its on auto pilot at those distances

The nice thing is, since I push (spush?) putt... if I find myself missing left/right consistently, I can correct during a round.

Over the last 1.5 years I've went through so many reiterations of my putting style with varying success it kind of hurts to think about. I started having quite a bit of success trying to emulate Ricky, but after a short hiatus this summer, completely lost consistency. I was struggling with 15 footers and that had to stop. Switched to a from the hip more spin than push putt (somewhere in between McBeth and Lizotte/Eagle). I was pretty much automatic to 20', but couldn't quite generate enough power to get consistent in the 25'-35' range. I started watching a lot of James Conrad, and thought he had a very easy looking putt style. I started toying around with it, and along with watching this old Philo clinic, something finally clicked. I think Philo repeating the weight toward the target, and watching the rhythm him and Conrad putt with really helped me.

As for OP missing right, there's something about keeping the right side of the body closed through the entire swing that helps me keep the disc going at the target. Also getting the weight moving toward the target before the pendulum starts moving forward is huge. I think anyone that's missing right has a weight shift issue. If everything is moving directly at the target, it's hard to miss right. If you're over opening the wrist, trying to release on just a slight hyzer helps. I "release" on more hyzer the further out my putt gets as it counteracts the natural over opening you'll get from trying to pop the disc out harder on 40'+ putts. I put release in quotes as the disc will naturally come out more flat through my regular putt stroke.
