Default Putting Style

Now I'm curious. How many people use the different styles of putting? Sorry if my terminology for the styles isn't 100% correct, to help people understand I'll try and list a pro next to the style.

I straight Putt 90% of the time. If I have to pull out a TP or a Straddle Putt its only to get out of trouble. More often my turbo putt is more of a turbo approach.

Depends on the situation but mainly the straight putt. I also tend to use a loft putt and staddle putt.

I tend to change with the putt distance.

20' and under I loft putt (straight arm, no spin)

As I get farther out, I start with the same lofting motion, but add more elbow bend and hand spin.

Any one else do this?

This sounds kind of like what I do, but I wouldn't know exactly unless I saw you do it, lol.

Straight putt UNLESS there is grave danger (like a cliff) if I miss. Then I loft putt. I don't make many of the loft putts but my objective is usually to just avoid disaster.
