Golf putt
Putting by a right-handed golfer.

In golf, the putt is used for putting the ball in the hole or closer to the hole (as in lagging) from the green. The putter is used for the putt. The golfer adjusts his/her putt to fit the circumstances of the play such as distance to the hole and slope of the green.

The face of the club starts square to the target line. The club goes straight back and straight through along the same path like a pendulum. One strategy is to aim the ball 10% past the hole. Another is to look at the hole for long putts instead of the ball.
