Interesting, I wonder if putting a mark at that spot would be enough to get any kind of consistency. I wonder if that’s allowed?

No mark was added, but for those type putts I'm pretty consistent.    

I tried this toe method at my usual putting practice area. Just flat putts, but I was testing to see if I could get more consistent short putts this way. The front to back dispersion was about the same 3”-5” from 3’ as with hitting the sweet spot aligned to the “line”.

Hitting off center with my center weighted Big Fontana putter just felt like the putter twists in my hands and did not give me better distance control for short putts. It just felt mis hit. Not sure this method is any better than just tapping lightly?

EVERY putt inside 15 feet--> Read the putt, feel the speed, pick a target at hole distance. Aim club face to that target, pick a spot 10 inches in front of the ball and make it roll thru that spot. Repeat.
Never had a positive SG Putting inside 10 feet before this.

I used to use to of putter but with my new Indy Toulon there's no room bc I'd be off the diamond milled middle.. so just aim with less of a normal stroke and hope🤔

Treat it like any other putt.

Read the break. Feel the speed. Let it go and hope it goes in.

Simple.

I think trying to doing something different can develop bad habits. 

But, then, I'm no Ben Crenshaw.
