We’ve recommended that you regularly test yourself with 10x flat 10-foot putts on the practice green. Once you’ve sorted out your line and aim, this will test your ability to square the face at impact. And it is predominantly the face angle that causes you problems.
Even though the swing path is exactly correct in the image above, just the smallest error in face angle means you miss your 10-foot putt. But, if you look below, a square face angle with a swing path 1° out to in, will drop in.
“There are several equipment factors that influence your ability to square the face of the putter. Given that most golfers can take 3 – 4 shots off their scorecard by improving their ability to square the face, we strongly recommend investing time in improvement.”

There are so many factors that influence your ability to square the face of your putter. Your setup and alignment. The length of your putter. The lie angle and weighting of the putter. Even the grip on the putter. Let’s check that setup so you can succeed.
