Irons you can hit it low, fade, draw and cut. Is there a different putting stroke?

well obviously there are lots of different putting methods and theories (straight-back-straight-through, arced, etc.). But the end purpose is to get the ball rolling straight.
I do think there are some putters who put some side spin on the ball by cutting across one way or the other and in essence playing the putt to curve just slightly. I know I've read something like that from one of the well-known putting books, but I can't remember which one at the moment. Will have to try and hunt the quote down. However I don't really see the benefit of it.
I don't see how that is possible unless you are hitting it very hard at a really bad angle. Most golfers do not have different types of strokes for lag or short putting either, just a stronger or larger version of their move.
I agree, I notice that I am a straight back and straight through type. They do create putters for different strokes. I was told that if you have a "face" balance putter it is better for a straight back and straight through stroke but you also have a heel balanced putter which helps if you are an arced type of stroke.
"Spin" is not causing that (whatever "that" is). Even if "spin" your ball a lot on the putting green it converts VERY quickly to topspin.
