Pushing putts to the right
I putt using a face balanced type putter (TM Spyder).
I’m having an issue pushing putts to the right, any advice?

Try playing the ball more forward in your stance. Most players that I see missing putts to the right have the ball position in the middle of their stance.

Try slowing down your take away, also look at how far you’re taking it back.

Try to shorten it up as much as you can while still getting the ball to the hole.

I’ve been experiments with this as well as having a slight forward lean while I putt. It’s helped on shorter putts. I guess I just need to get the feel for longer putts using that same tactic

Forward press matches up nicely w playing the ball up in your stance. Its a little old school but still does the job for a lot of players.

What kind of weights do you have in the back of the Spider? Heavier weights can lead to pushes. If you can change them to lighter weights, it may help. If you already have lighter weights, then ignore everything I said.

Honestly I don’t know. I actually just got the Spyder I had a Nike mallet for years and just switched to the Spyder (I’ve only had it a week). But I had the same issue with the old Nike putter, I’ve got to look into the weights

If the club face is square to your line, the putt will go on target. I like to grip so that the back of my left hand is square with the target line and then focus my stroke to keeping that pointed at the hole.

My hands used to come open through the stroke, especially on short putts, and this thought helped me a ton.

This is what I do or at least I think I do

OP, relax with the putter in your hand. You might be strangling it.
