Paul, I have some problems putting the putter down behind the ball, sometimes in adjusting the distance to the ball I hit the ball unintentionally and have to take a penalty. Could you go throught the basics of setting the putterhead, moving it and the distance to the ball.
I probably keep it an inch from the ball for this very reason. You might want to try that.
I did one tip on how it should sit. This may help.

I will put the other on my list.

Hi Paul I am having a hard time with puts of 2 to 3 feet and I was wondering if you have any tips and drills to help me with this. I have been working on hitting a lot of longs puts like you suggested and have become pretty good at that but not so good with the short ones. Thanks for all the great tips I look forward to the, every day

Yes, I have a tip on that here:

I seem to be more successful putting when I set up a bit behind the ball looking down the line. It helps me see the line better. It also promotes a nice upward impact. There are so many ways to putt. Different grips etc. I love your setup and stance though. Seems very relaxed and an easy way to get that roll the ball feeling.

You need to do what works (within reason). I like people to be comfortable. If someone is doing a strange set up or move and they are not an exceptional putter then I would change it. If someone is great with a strange move I would tell them to keep doing it.

A pretty good summing up of what makes an excellent putting stance
It should be noted that PAUL RUNYAN advised to locate the ball off th left big toe ,it enables to put topspin on the ball ,striking up.I don’t do this because some other very good putters say it’s better to strike the ball a bit down .Also ,see TIGER WOODS putting ,his stance is very narrow
To make sure the width of my stance is constant ,I train with a 12 inch ruler between my feet ;I use the width of my stance to caliber the length of the roll of the ball
Yes, don’t want to be too wide or narrow. Not sure about that ball position. Seems too far forward. The more forward the ball the more open the shoulders. You would have to be aware of that if you were to move the ball off the big toe.

Thanks Paul I know you promote the head to move on the swing but guessing it needs to stay still on these putts? …and no peeking to see if its on target? cheers Rob

Putting would be totally different than the full swing. The head needs to stay fairly still throughout the putt, if it is moving then you would become inconsistent.
