I was wondering if any of you guys have any drills to keep your putter square around and through impact. Sometimes the putter naturally opens or closes too much for me and I lose the ball offline. When I try to not move the face at all I yank it completely more often than not. My grip is a standard interlock. Any changes you all made that helped with this? Should I just try to focus on "rolling the ball in the hole" a la Stockton? Any input is helpful. Thanks

You should keep the putter face square to the arc.  It will only be square to the target at impact.

Get a Pelz Putting Tutor or some other type of 'gate' training aid.

I second the Putting Tutor, but go for the old one if you can find it anywhere.

Try and feel the putter head stays square to your shoulders - they naturally open and close just a smidge during the stroke, and also happen to mimic the path the putter head will take
