I have a 2014 Select Newport 2 putter, right handed. It was pointed out to me that I was addressing and striking the ball with the toe up (top edge not perfectly level to the ground). I'm wondering if I need to have the lie angle adjusted. It seems a toe up position if taken to extreme would result in the loft pulling the ball left (for right handed) and oppositely pushing ball right if using an exaggerated heel up position. I see pros using Scotty Cameron putters on TV with a slight toe up address so I'm wondering at what point does the loft of start to direct the ball a little off line? Does it take a crazy extreme amount before the deflection off the line of travel becomes an issue?
With this specific putter, the Select Newport 2, is the neutral position (with zero right or left deflection) with the top edge perfectly level to the ground? That's what I'm assuming but want to confirm.
