Try a lighter grip, i noticed all good putters hold their putters lightly

Try the SuperStroker putter grip, keeps the wrists and hands quiet

Try Belly putter

If I understand correctly, a pull mean the ball travel to the left during your putt. I guess it its when you putter face was slightly closed during impact due to many reasons.

Using a bigger grip might help but you will lost the feeling of the weight of the putter. I tried the bigger grip but did not work for me. Also check whether you have a correct griping. You will pull if your left hand had just slightly under grip.

Try this drill, stand and putt with your right feet behind your left feet. This will prevent your shoulder from turn behind during your putt. I even use this stand for all my short putt.

Most important, do check whether your eyes are following the ball after impact ( some called "looking up" ). If you do "look up", your whole shoulder or body to pull to the left. Practice using the "coin" drill. Put a coin under the ball and made sure you still looking at the coin after you have stroke the ball.

My remedy, to putt better. One need to understand the green speed, distance control and green breaks. Last to practice hard ...

putt looking at the hole the whole time and you will discover why you pull the putt and it has nothing to do with grip or putter head.

schnell is learning well, looks like the teh-C is paying off.

a lot of people confuse the putting stroke with the golf swing. they are different, hence one is a stroke and the other one requires the golfer to follow through to the target.

you can also try setting up with a relatively extended right hand with the right elbow clear of your body, the left hand should have a bit of a bend like a slight chicken wing. that is the best posture to keep the putter head square to impact which will in turn take out any push or pull.

getting the right setup and posture is key to getting the ball to where you aim. Even aiming is a lesson itself.

hope it helps.......DGman
