Cameron Smith Putting Jpg

Sky Sports’ analyst and putting guru Brad Faxon has shared what he believes is Cameron Smith’s secret to great putting.

The Australian added a victory at The Players Championship to his Tournament of Champions victory earlier in the year, and it was largely down to a tremendous performance on the greens.

The new world No. 6 gained nearly 12 shots on the field on the greens at TPC Sawgrass. Over the full week, Smith only took 101 putts to complete his 72 holes, better than anyone else in the field.

So, what does Faxon see in his technique that sets him apart? It’s simple, Smith is relaxed over the ball.

“Cam Smith epitomises comfort when he’s standing over the ball,” says Faxon.

“He’s got a great grip. He has light grip pressure and he’s not in a hurry and his arms are relaxed, his upper back and neck is also relaxed.

“If you want to putt great, get comfortable over the ball, figure out what’s right for you. You’ll make more putts.”
