January 11: In the latest segment of Winning Edge, Korean rising star Baek Seuk-hyun reveals a simple but effective tip on how to hit a solid putt. The Thai-based Korean says this golf tip below can help many amateur golfers improve on their putting just by using two tees.
By Baek Seuk-hyun
Step 1
Place your putter head on the ground and place two tees at each end of the putter. Leave a bit of space from the edge of the putter head so you have space to manoeuvre your putting stroke.
Step 2
Practice your putting stroke and make sure your putter is aligned with the two tees. Amateurs often make the mistake of moving the putter when they putt.
Step 3
Always remember to keep your head down and never look at the hole immediately after making impact with the ball.  When you look at the ball at impact, your clubface will open, causing the ball to move in a different direction.
Step 4
Always have a relaxed grip. This will help you when you are under pressure to sink that important birdie or par putt!

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: Baek earned his Asian Tour card in 2010 by finishing in the top-40 of Qualifying School. He endured a slow start to the season before bursting into life with a tied 10th placing at the King’s Cup in Thailand. He surprised even himself when he took the second and third round lead at the Hero Honda Indian Open and was on the brink of victory but faded with a final round 73 to finish in second place, two strokes from the champion Rikard Karlberg of Sweden. The performance was good enough to help him earn his full playing rights for the 2011 season. In 2011, his best result was a tied-16th finish at the Macau Open. The Korean went on to enjoy four top-10 finishes in 2012. He has been based in Thailand since 2004.
