Putting: Eyes over the Ball?

Actually, there isn’t any law of golf technique that says the eyes must be over the ball when putting If you are a good putter and your eyes aren’t over the ball, you don’t have to change. That said, eyes over the ball normally makes it easier to accurately aim the putter. Why? For the same reason that one would sight a rifle straight down the barrel rather than off to the side. So, if you want to check your eye position, just freeze in your address position. Then, holding onto the very top of the grip at your eye, let the putter hang straight down. That will tell you where you need to reposition your head to get the eyes over the ball.
