how about fixing your stroke so you dont push...?

to answer your original question, you're thinking way too much into it. Putt with what feels good, stop thinking about "toe balanced" and "center shafted" blah blah. In 12 years of golfing, i didn't even know those kinds of things existed. I just try putters and whatever feels good, I go with.

Just grab a putter, buy it, and live with it. It's all in the mind believe me. I got my PING G5i online without even trying it once, and I fell in love with it. Great putter, great looking, great balance and weighting, great feel from the insert. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Forgot to say, I used to put like crap with it until I figured out it was me not the putter. I changed the way I grip it and my putting stroke and the results were amazing.

Not all but a lot putts pushed to the right are due to head motion while eyes are following the ball. If you miss putts you must first decide whether your ball rolled on the intended line. If You putt where you want the ball to go and miss the putt then it is a reading problem. Some get fooled because they putt the ball and it goes in the hole but not on the intended line. Seldom do you hear someone say that they made a putt solely by accident.

If you push an offset putter might give you that extra fraction of a second to square it up, then again in that second the putter could actually be opening. What kind of putter are you looking for (blade or mallet)? How much are you willing to pay?

    • Headcovers for your irons is like a vinyl film hood cover on your car.  It protects the hood from rock chips (purely aesthetic) but is a bad look.  Wear and tear on certain things in life is a given (bodies included), adds character and we should embrace it.  Like a good pair of faded jeans.  Hope I'm not stepping on any toes here.
    • I can relate, but like yourself, I like the challenge of achievement.   I have a great opportunity for a miracle!  wait... I need a miracle or something like that!
    • I will not put a white belt on my clubs!   A couple of the guys I play with on the weekend purchased new clubs and bought club covers.. ugh.   
    • Yeah, no. I’m giving you a 4/10 on the Golf Swing Guru Crackpot Scale. You lost points for: No visual aids. Like, at all. No citing a YouTube video claiming this swing shows off what you are talking about. No mystical looking 1990-style website. No avatar of some part of the body or a golf swing. You gained points for: Suggesting that you alone know the truth or facts at play here. Misusing big words you clearly don’t understand. Citing Ben Hogan. Try harder next time. You can do it!
