Assuming you don't have a problem starting the ball on your intended line then I would suggest the ladder drill or putting to the fringe of the putting green.

A fun drill to do is to putt a circle of tees around the hole that has a ratio of 10:1 - Putting from 10ft? 1ft circle. 30ft? 3ft cirlce. And so on. Hit 10 putts from a variety of distances, lines, breaks, etc, and see how close you can get to 80% inside each circle from each distance (Then hole them out!) So you'll get a focus on pace, and a bit of holing out practice

Okay do we try to get the weight of the ball to roll 18 inches (Pelz) or 12 inches as per aimpoint

Here's an interesting video regarding optimal "capture speed". Basically Mangum advocates a speed where the ball enters the hole and hits the bottom-center of the cup or the bottom-backwall of the cup. He's against the "inches past the hole" guideline.

It's worth the 10 minutes. :)

Funny how Phil likes to bang his putts to the back of the cup while Jordan likes to gently roll them in

Learning "die speed" for longer putts helped me out a ton, and that can be accomplished through premier green reading programs like Aimpoint.

The minute I started to really comprehend how much break a putt has, I started to be able to ride the high side close to the hole, and more putts just seem to find their way down.

Beyond that, as another poster said, ladder drills help.
