FIRST - you must make sure you decide whether you are going to hit it firm or let it die in the hole, then and only then can you pick your line - once you have those 2 things decided on, go through your routine, this will calm you down, release your breath, and stroke the putt with confidence. All else being equal, you should make more of them than you miss.

When i start getting a little shaky over the 5 footers i go to the putting green one or two nights and just make 100 or even 200 5 footers before i leave. this will build confidence and that way when you get on the course and you have a 5 footer just pretend your on the practice green and drain it! good luck!

look up a great article by Golf Digest called "the quiet eye" you'll love it. simplifies things so much and has scientific proof to back everything up. Its a quick read only about three pages.

Ok, what i do is I line up every put even i the putt is 2 feet away, i found that it helps a lot, dont worry about your grip, as long as you keep a consistent grip throughout your stroke, third have confidence in your putting stroke, dont think about missing and picture the ball rolling in the cupJackson H

I think you spend 1-2 hours on the putting green just practicing those putts. Phil mickelson has a drill where he makes a circle of three foot putts on a sloping part of the green around the hole to simulate all kinds of breaks. he does the drill until he can make all the putts in a row. you could try that.

I read from behind about 5 to 6 foot behind the ball. Then go over to the front side and read the same. Then I get over the ball and look at the hole to see the line, I do not put unless I see the line. A few practice swings for speed in the line. Pull back, pause for a brief moment then release making corrections at impact not before.
This has been successful on fast greens for me, but speed and line is everything.
