The idea that you’re supposed to accelerate through the putt, to me, is illogical because that would mean you’re accelerating after the ball has already left the clubface. If you think of your stroke as a pendulum, maximum acceleration is happening at the start of the downswing.

Using two tees set up as a modified gate that won’t let your putter release more than a quarter-inch past impact, you’ll get the feeling and sensation that the follow-through is not an integral part of the stroke, and you’ll lose the urge to surge.
