Does this class as a stroke??
On a short putt a player steps up awkardly to his ball to avoid stepping on his opponents line. As he goes to putt the ball his putter stabs into the ground & doesn't make contact with the ball.
Does this count as a stroke as his club has not gone past the point at which the ball is positioned (unline an airshot which does)??

Yes its a shot. Because he intended to hit the ball, it counts !

If he was intending to putt the ball then it would count as a stroke. If he wasn't intending to putt the ball then it wouldn't count as a stroke.
From what you have written then I would say it was a stroke.
