How to practice follow-through when putting, and why it's so important

One of the most important aspects of proper disc golf putting form also
happens to be counter-intuitive to the way people usually first learn
to throw a flying disc. I'm talking follow-through, which in a classic
putting motion means thrusting the throwing (putting) hand forward
toward the target, as opposed to 'flinging' the disc from the side like
a tossing a Frisbee at the beach.

A different set of muscles are involved, so it not only feels weird at
first but also requires some time and repetition to develop those
muscles. Check out this short clip on YouTube
that demonstrates a short exercise developed to help players work on
proper putting follow-through. If you don't feel like watching the clip, click here for a written description.

I watched the video and went out and played a round yesterday. I consistently made 25-35 foot putts and finished my 23 hole round with seven birdies and a score of 4 under! Putting was my weakness and now it feels like I've finally found the key to improved putting.

Its a very important point you bring up, its an entirely stroke putting and approaching, sometimes a little bug bear for me, in that area of doubt, will my putt stroke reach from here? Its more accurate, generating less power but more accuracy.
