Not a terrible putter, but like many of us occasionally I just out of the blue go cold and can’t get one on line to save my soul.

So out of a 2x4 and some scrap 1x4 I had in the garage, I made one. It’s 1/8” wider than my putter head. In some tests on my putting mat I go back through pretty consistently but am getting a little loose coming back to
Center.

I’m debating drilling 4 holes through it so I. A use tees to anchor it on the practice green. Thoughts?

Im trying to train the motion not the result atm, I get instant feedback if the stroke isn’t right because it bumps the side

Most putting strokes have some degree of arc so I’m not sure a straight-sided box will teach a proper stroke. The only person I’ve seen using what you describe is Bryson, however he has an extreme upright lie angle in his setup.

Also, who is to say your line issues aren’t alignment or ball position related?

I ordered the Alignment Ball Training Aid. Basically get two stakes and some string to use as a straight line on the putting green. The visual of the straight line and your ball path helps you figure out what you are doing wrong with your stroke.

Its probably both, but part of is I feel like the stroke isn’t consistent, especially on short putts. In that regard I shouldn’t have much arc.

Marking it I can work on foot and ball position too.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a pretty good putter, I’m trying to get more consistent and help reduce the number of days I can’t make one to save my life. Especially the pull/push 5 footer.

I have a Perfect Practice putting mat at home. I've probably had it for a couple of years now but really started using it a lot in the last year. It really helps you build a stroke that starts the ball on line and stays straight. It has that railroad track down the mat all the way to the hole - really good for building a repeatable stroke. I had to experiment with different ball positions, alignment, putters, grips, etc that would consistently get me to roll the ball on the straight line the most.

It won't help you with distance control (mine is the smaller version, 7ft max distance) but it will help you build a stroke that starts the ball on line.

I have a putting arc in my office. I know the guy who invented it and a good bit of tour players have used it through the years.
