Krista Dunton introduces the basics for getting the face of your putter aimed and aligned where you want. To practice for longer putts that move left to right or up or down hill, you should begin with somewhat straight, 6-8 ft. putts and work on getting all of your starting angles correct, and then adapt for tougher putts once you’ve gotten the hang of it. The ball should be slightly ahead of the center of your stance and your putter should be exactly square to the hole. Krista recommends you try any number of the different practice tools available to you to check if you’re squared off, the easiest being a simple ruler.
