Putter Pushback is a memory aid to remind myself that the best way to start the backstroke is to eliminate any independent hand movement. It engages the big muscles and eliminates the small muscles.
A Putting Compensation occurs when you correct one error in your stroke or setup by creating another. This may be a band-aid fix, but it is never a good long-term solution for your putting.
Arm Putting is allowing your arms to swing the putter rather than allowing a deliberate rocking motion of your shoulders to lead your stroke. A shoulder stroke leads to excessive upper body movement.
A Cut Stroke is where the path of your putter travels from outside the target line to inside the target line. The question is - 'So What' as long as your putterface stays square to the target line?
The Belly Putter has been the salvation for some golfers whose putting has gone south. However, there is still the thought attached to its use that it is a band-aid solution rather than the real deal.
The Angle of Contact is the angle at which your putterface contacts the ball at impact. If the angle is too steep, or too shallow, you will have trouble with both your direction and distance control.
