Here is what you have to do to become a great putter...
Read the green accurately: Properly reading the green is by far the most important factor in putting. You need to understand how the length of the putt, the speed of the green and the slope of the green all affect your reads.
Focus on aim: Focus on your aim, and make sure you are aiming accurately. You can use alignment aids or aim lines to help with this.
Develop a consistent stroke: Consistent and repeatable putting strokes are key to making putts. Focus on developing a smooth, steady, and consistent stroke.
Work on speed control: Speed control is crucial in putting. Make sure to hit the ball at the right speed, so it reaches the hole.
Use visualization techniques: Visualization can help you to better focus and improve your putting. Imagine making a successful putt, and picture the ball rolling smoothly into the hole.
Practice regularly: Regular practice is essential to improve your putting skills. Set aside time each day or week to work on your putting.
