I saw a putting clinic on here can't remember who it was.. Some pro.. He suggested a straight arm approach without arm movement locked in, kind of a horseshoe pitch.

I'm with Dr bogey.. Slight hyzer, try a straight lob in a line with basket, back foot turned so there is a straight path from start to finish to the basket. Try something a little stable Rhyno or better an Envy haha.

In a new development that totally surprised me, a slight anhyzer putt seems to be actually working really well for me. My misses seem to be much more in the normal range for a spin putt. I haven't tried this outside about 25 feet yet but will report back after the weekend.

What are you putting with?

The reason I ask is because when I put with beadless putters, they seem to drag a little on the crease of my index finger and I hang on to them just that extra bit and every other putt misses right.

The bigger the bead the better for me.

Just a thought

I've tried several beadless, small bead and big bead. Putting with firm electron Ions right now. They seem to feel the best in my hand.

And then there's those of us who "spush putt" and miss all over the place.

I'd simplify. If you are consistently missing right by the same amount, it could actually be a good thing. Just aim left of the target until it works.

Putting is always an adventure with me because i am right handed but i am left eye dominate. So i just square my hips & belly button up to the pole & pray for the best.

I say use other arm as a track guide with the disc when putting, only thing that helped me not miss as much left or right on the basket from a traditional putt style back when I changed from a no disc rotation basketball like putt that I stunk with, when I tried to play disc golf again in 2014 after not really playing much since early 2009. It is a push pitch putt combo with adding spin to the push style further I am from the basket starting at 10 or 12 feet adding spin.

I am too, I do the same, with front foot to the pole and trying to have throwing arm in line with the pole too.

Here's a nice putting video by Paul Ulibarri which addresses pulling the shot right.
