I have never been a great putter.  I have been experimenting with different putting techniques.  Something that I have found to help with a consistent stroke has been to keep weight in the heels more so than the balls of my feet.  I feel like it gives me more room to swing my arms through.  I would always set up to a putt with weight distribution similar to hitting a full iron golf shot.  Anyone else have different weight distribution when putting?

My weight is about 65/35 in my lead leg and centered over my feet. To me, whatever setup position best enables you to keep the lower body dead still is what should be used.

I set up (and look for similar in my students) with back of the shoulders, middle of the elbows, and where the toes meet the foot in a straight vertical line. Then have the shaft match my forearms.

From there you're set up balanced, and it makes it easy to stroke the hands back and forth. If your putter suits your stroke (face rotation matches the arc) then that ball is only going to go straight
