I'll be honest:

I hate putting. I suck at it. No matter what I do, what stroke I try, I can't make putts. Today I played 18 holes and shot a 90 with 46 putts. 46 putts! No matter how I adjust, I always end up hitting slice putts that end on the right side of the hole.

So, I need help. Any putting techniques/drills/tricks you guys know would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Try left handed. My son had a similar problem. We wee at Golfsmith and he started playing around with a left handed putter and WOW. He grips it like he is putting right handed and immediately I could see a difference in roll. It just seems more natural. He is right handed in everything else but I guess his brain processes the putting stroke backwards. It may not work for you but I would say it's worth giving it a try.

This is very interesting and something may try. My cousin is right handed in everything but throws a frisbee and shoots pool left handed. It's so weird ho that stuff works! Thanks for the tip.

The Pill putting training aid is good for learning to putt better.
