That being said if I tried to learn to putt with my left hand I'm sure I would be way more prone to one-off mistakes at random for a long time.

Also videoing your putt could be helpful, at minimum for you to see what it actually looks like.
Yes, definitely more of a lob. I really struggle to get straight lines and spin putting is an absolute joke for me. No clue how anyone does that. My brain just won't believe outside of 25' that its even possible though I've seen it done, I just can't seem to accomplish it consistently. I know I need to be applying more force with the "pinch" rather than pushing upwards on the flight plate with my fingers. I can't figure out to do it though.

It feels like a spring outward to me, I sling the back edge of the disc toward the basket and it pops out on line toward the chains. Good weight shift is the foundation of consistency and also longer distances, but figuring out this pop/sling feel is huge. I'm not thinking upward or pressure on the flight plate up at all, just back edge popping away from me toward the target in that last instant.

Go as close as you need to, like 12-15' and pop THROUGH the chains, not to the chains. Trust it will catch it. No lobbing. When you get it right it'll be the same feel or power on a 12' putt as a 25' putt.

I can't spin putt either but after figuring out that slinging feeling in my putts, I can easily keep balance on 40-45'ers without worrying about power at all, just aim. Before, I had to start worrying about power at 35' and I'd be stepping through or jump putting around that 45' range.

It's such a huge difference when you only have to think about aim and not getting there too.

Yeah the weightshift aspect of it I can do decently, it's really just the inconsistent release out of the hand. When I hold it too tightly I'm missing high, but then sometimes it slips out early when I'm not holding it hard enough. I can't find the balance.

Uploading a couple vids now.

Start completely on the front leg, outstretch to the hit position like on a drive. This is where you will have to shift your weight forward to, and where the pop/release will be so it makes sense to aim from here too. You're starting between the legs and when you load back also stepping back first like deyo7 pointed out. Of course you can eventually do whatever routine works for you, but give it a try to start standing more forward to the actual release point, rather than leaned back between the legs.

On release the disc looks like it's 20+ degrees nose down. This forces you to throw a very high to low shot, and you're pushing the flight plate up like you said too. Try to putt very flat, so that you can concentrate more on disc rotation rather than pushing the disc forward like a brick. You can always adjust the spin to push ratio later, but I really think you're doing too much shovel and not enough leverage. A flatter release will make it way more possible to feel the back of the disc sling forward to become the front...because they'll be on the same plane.

Yes there are a ton of different putting styles that can be effective, but try a really flat shot or only a couple degrees nose down...this will help you with getting easier glide. Especially if you're having trouble reaching 25'ers.

a someone said; "It΄s all about the release". If you got that down you should be able to putt pretty much from any position as long as you are not in the air.

I think it was SP who first posted this a couple of years ago. This is Paul shifting and getting up on the front leg.

Yep, putt like One Leg Drill balanced forward on front leg or almost Feet Together Drill. Barely any weight on rear foot, that is only way McBeth can screw his back foot back and forth on the ground. He just uses the back foot for leverage forward and counter balance/weight kick behind him as swing goes forward, he's not really shifting his weight back to back foot or much of it. Front shin should get vertical and knee should get forward of ankle - athletic.

Yeah I feel really far forward in one leg drill when aiming. Like WAY forward extending to the hit/release, but in balance.

So it's interesting to see in this comparison I'm even MORE far forward when I actually putt because my rear leg is counterbalancing me.
