How to get the ball up to the hole - and finish
Duncan Williamson this week explained how he managed to rectify a putting problem that had been holding his own game back:
“I’d been having some problems with my putting, I just wasn’t getting the ball up to the hole.
“I needed something to visualise where I held the finish.
“I used a training aid called the eyeline, which allows you to see where the ball should be in relation to your eyes and let me see where the finish of my putt should be.
“This trained me to complete the stroke.
“The key is to get your eyes right above the ball and make sure your stroke goes right through to the hole. If you’re on your heels, then you will pull the putter to the left, causing you to decelerate. That’s why I wasn’t getting the ball up to the hole.
“Ever since, I’ve felt more comfortable, and more confident going on to the green.
“Get yourself into the habit of doing the right things when you putt and just keep doing it.”
Even the professionals struggle with elements of their game sometimes, and this week Duncan explains how he addressed an issue that had crept into his play
