The forward press in putting is a matter of preference, but all golfers should try to see if it helps achieve more consistency on the putting green.

I have seen two of the best putters on the PGA Tour over the last 50 years are Dave Stockton and Jordan Spieth.  Both players use a forward press in their putting stroke to set the lead wrist in a “flat” position and then “push” the putter head through with absolutely no breakdown of that lead wrist.

Practice this at home on the carpet first.  You won’t be sorry!
