    Well, the belly/sternum putter has earned a spot in the bag. I had been trying to use it as a belly putter, anchoring it just above my navel due to its length and just never get the feel for it. Went down to the putting green today after a lot of time on the carpet holding it at my sternum and using my right hand in a claw grip. Ureeka, I was draing putts right and left with it. Sooooo, for now anyway, the Nickent Tube putter is in the bag as my gamer.

    I couldn't make a belly putter work but boy I got my chest putter going mid-summer. It's a lock in the bag now.

    Within 10-15 feet I'm deadly with this sternum putter. 15 - 20 feet I'm leaving myself easy tap ins I can definitely live with. My problem is anything over 20 feet I just can't get a feel for. I keep coming up WAY short. Any tips?

    Yup, try a chest putter. JK but I had the same problem with a belly putter.
