I have noticed that when I give the ball a little pop just at impact with my wrists, the ball seems to go straighter toward where I want it to go and I have better distance control. Is this a bad habit that is going to keep me from getting better, or is this an OK way to putt?

I was "popping" my putts early in the season somewhat like Snedecker style but I didnt feel comfortable later on, maybe greens faster? I like to feel more a "tapping" motion like Rory style putting now.
For inside 8 feet I like to feel no tapping or popping. I like to hold the putter with my thumb muscles only and move like a pendulum stroking action .
