It’s a highly effective shot—but there’s an alternative. This tight-lie solution illustrated in the photo below works best for shots that don’t involve a carry over a hazard or an obstacle shots in which you’ll want the ball to stay low and run to the pin.
Over the years I’ve found that swinging the putter straight back and then down the line with the face kept square to the target through impact (call it a “linear” stroke) is the easiest way to start putts on the desired line. An arcing stroke can work but it takes a deft touch and better timing than Bob Hope.
Hone your ability to start the ball on line as often as you can. When I practice I have my son Eddie stand behind me on an extension of my chosen starting line. From this down-target view he can easily discern the movement of the putter the angle of the face and whether or not the ball starts on line.
