This is my experience as well, especially for lag putts, any putt on the 100 foot meter and above this is a great rule of thumb.  4 rules of putting:

1. Pace

2. Pace

3. Pace

4. Line

I don't use Putter Pal and The only equation I use is a simple one.  Tourny speed using a putter with 15,30,60 scale.

Full meter ..15 goes 20ft,  30 goes 40ft,  60 goes 80 ft.

If you use avatar movements when putting -

30 scale - 3 avatar movements is 24ft.

60 scale - 3 avatar movements goes 48ft.

20ft putt up 4 elevation - 24ft.   3 Avatar movements on the 30 scale = 24ft.  I would hit slightly more than 24ft to make sure it's not short

With all the other speeds I kinda guess using the same equation as above.

So on Champ green speed.  20ft putt up 4 elevation = 24 ft I would hit it about 19ft.  Just short of full on the 15 ft scale.

I just go by feel and years playing the game.  Not good at it but I go alright.

If I have putts more than 80ft I'm stuffed as I havn't worked out anything more than that  lol.  but rarely get into that situation anyway.

Something I use between the speeds --the difference between 12 and 13 is the move or cancel it. It fits what you're saying.  :-)

Yes, you can, I do. You still have to get the speed right.  :-)

If anyone wishes to replicate the game as if it was for real. Then do not use calculations. I play because if I lip out. I lip out..Depends on whether anyone plays WGT as a gamer or they or as a " golfer". I see scores being posted in low 50's over 18 holes. Good for them but it's not realistic.

Yes true.   Now because this is a game you have to get the speed right.  On a real golf course you can stand there and visualize the putt but on a screen it's knida hard to do that.
