Lesson 358-Examine your putting misses and look to your full swing for the answers. Path and release will provide some insight to your miss.

(This was before I read Ryan's post.)
I might be in trouble!  I used to be under the swing plane and hit draws.  After 6 months of work I am a one-plane  swinger who cuts the ball.  I believe my putter swing remains a slight arc tilted right, but have had too many three-putts lately

Hi Jeff,

We have seen this happen a number of times, and we think this explains why some struggle with putting after a swing change. We used to blame it on a lack of practice, but swinging a club is swinging a club. Regardless of speed.

Are you losing putts to the right? Especially, short ones?

     Bruce, thanks for the time and effort that you put in to this.  Hard to believe it's been 365 posts. 

     Guess it's time to go back to Page 1 and start reading them all again.

     Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and expertise with us!

Thank you! It is a pretty generous thing to share all this knowledge.

On a side note, since I checked this thread every morning at work as I turned on my computer, what am I supposed to do now?

ditto to the above sentiments.   Have learned so much from you about putting.   

When does the one year page a day calendar come out?

Wealth of knowledge !  I find my chipping has improved greatly as some concepts like the heel leading vs toe throwing discussion made sense in how I naturally chip the ball. I like to control the heel in chipping

Bruce,

Sorry about the delayed response.  Missing short putts right, and leaving putts short from 10'-15'!.

Any thoughts on correction?

Thanks,
Jeff

Release the putter. You are holding the finish in your full swing, if the path is still to the right, you can't hold the finish on the putts. Face is open slightly +more loft and face pointed wiht path to the right.

As you know, I am a right-arm swinger who took it back on an arc and followed through to the target. Continue with that process?

Thanks!

Yes - You built your stroke with some knowledge and intent. Many just swing the the putter and so their full swing tendencies show in their putting stroke. Your have broken that relationship to some extent, so no reason to change, just work on your method.

Having said that....

Source of motion is a choice or preference, no harm in trying a left arm lead to see if matching putting to full swing release helps. No way to know unless you try.

Not that it matters, but I fool around with source of motion all the time. The result is 4 different putters for 4 different strokes. I feel no anxiety in changing to show a student. Doesn't mean if a putt was for money I wouldn't have a favorite.

Try hitting some putts with your right hand on your left forearm. Let the putter finish left. See what you think.

     Bruce,  Is this lesson #366, or a new lesson #1.
