"When it comes to putting, I’ll ask the best players I know for advice. I’m not proud," Simon admits.
"That’s why I walked up to Mark McNulty on the practice putting green at one event because I regard him as one of the best in the world and have admired his putting stroke for years.
"Mark told me that if you’re naturally right-handed put as much of that hand on the club first before adding the left hand and wrapping it round.
"So if you’re right-handed let the right hand dictate the grip, the feel and the direction. It’s common sense if you think about it. I was never sure which hand I placed on the club first but I made a conscious effort to put my right hand on the handle of the putter first and felt an immediate sense of control through my fingers.
"I'm not the best putter on Tour by far but since adopting this method, my putting has certainly improved and at my level that makes one hell of a difference," says Simon.
