Tour-pro tips: Improve your putting with Thomas AikenOctober, 2013
European Tour winner Thomas Aiken on how to get the ball running
There are many fundamentals to get right when putting but this one is crucial as it involves the putter head.
I was taught when I was a kid by Mark McNulty that you must release the clubhead squarely.
This is obviously a long putt as I have a long followthrough but the putter head has passed my hands and I have accelerated.
The biggest thing with amateurs is they don’t commit to the putt, you must always stay down even after impact.
I am looking out the corner of my eye but am trying to keep my head as still as possible.
