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.

Maybe mix it up. I'll trade you putters! Lol I want that Newport!!

I actually sold it a while back and never updated my signature. I'm currently gaming one of the Pro Platinum Mil-Specs. I know my misses aren't the putter's fault, and I don't plan on ever letting it leave me (;

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.
I saw one guy did it. He played right-handed, but putt left-handed. And it worked for him. Very odd to see.

Currently am not. I've tried everything: claw, left-hand low, even Jordan Spieth's grip, which is far again the most uncomfortable and even painful grip I've ever tried. Unfortunately, I'm still hitting my characteristic slice putts ):

I don't consider myself a great putter, but I've gotten better after a putting lesson.
My big problem was starting the ball on my intended line, pulling it left for some reason.

One of the drills they had me do, was to buy a metal yardstick (couple of bucks @ Home Depot). Place a ball at the 6" mark....putt the ball all the way down the yardstick without it rolling off. If you can do this, you'll get yourself on-line again.
Try it - it's a great drill.
