Similar to my earlier post but, the best tip I could give anyone is. Stand behind the ball and make your read and pick the line u want to put your ball on. Pick a mark a foot or a little more infront of the ball, eg just inside a divot mark, or different colour patch of grass, or a bit of fluff etc. pick exactly where u want the ball to go and imagine the ball rolling over that and going into the hole. Now the important part. Step up to the ball and line yourself up with that mark, try to have that mark in your peripheral vision so your head doesnt move because you will get a distorted view of the line. Line your body up with where your aiming. Now only look at the hole to get a feel for the distance. Nothing else, when u look side on you will think your putting the wrong line but you aren't. Remember you stood behind the ball and checked the line yourself so trust it. The moment you doubt the line or think it looks wrong, step away and start over. I can gaurentee you that it will look wrong when your standing beside the ball. Dont look at the hole, watch the spot you picked out and putt it on that line. Last but not least, dont look up early, not till u finish your follow through or you will push or pull it off your line.
You will be amazed how weird it feels but how well it works. I reckon for 5 rounds I felt like i either had the wrong line or once i hit the ball it was going to miss but they all went in or missed cause of my read not my stroke.
1 last thing. If you miss the putt, dont get upset if you putted the ball on the line you chose, because you made a good putt, you just miss read it which everyone does. Reading greens isnt easy. If you missed because you didnt putt it on the line you wanted then thats your fault. You can get angry with that.
