I think 3 putt avoidance is more important stat.
Hitting 14 greens and missing 4 greens and three putting 12 of them?
That's not good enough for competitive round.

I use three measurement to determine if Im putting well or not. lengths of 3 feet. 8 feet and 35 feet.
According to tour pro stats inside 3 feet will be 100%.
1)Do you miss <95% any short putts inside three feet? If so Then work on making 100 of them in a row. I believe making short putts is more of a confidence factor and not trying too hard.
2)Inside 8 feet touring pros seem to be able one putt more than two putt. These are make able putts.
My general rule is not to be short on these putts
But dont be hard on yourself if you dont make them from 4-8 feet, there's always a chance you might miss.
However if you three putt these then its my opinion have to make serious help/changes in your putting stroke.
If you 2 putt more often than one putt but dont 3 putt, then it might be more of a misread than stroking ability.
Might have to pay more attention to reading green than stroking ability.
3) At 35 feet there is where there is more chance of three putting then one putting, however 88% of the time the tour pros will still two putt.
This is where the cup appears to be more like a dot then a hole. I believe this is where lagging putts and being short is okay
Trying to get in a 6 foot diameter ( 3 feet radius of the hole) is my goal. Im also looking at this circle if Im on the fringe and chipping/putting 15 yards away from the hole.
4) If you only miss 4 green in regulation then you are a good ballstriker
Im assuming you are close to the green that you miss say 20/30/40/50 yards away from the hole.
From those distance, getting inside 8 feet (16 foot diameter of the hole) is a reasonable aim.
The tour pros make only 1/2 of their up and downs.
Trying to get inside 8 feet by lobbing/pitching/flopping /chipping/ putting or what ever method you feel comfortable with increases the chances you will one putt
