As an inveterate AE admirer/quasi-worshipper, who only critiques his Throws out of sincere hope that he can indeed emulate Clay there, I read that line with certain qualms, vowing to be even more clear in both general comments like the potential benefits of consulting a Throws Coach, and specific observations on a few elements of his style--even including HJ, where he eschews the standard longish, measured approach, opting for a slow skip into the final 5-6 strides.
That said, I noted with surprise the closeup of his SP release, in one of the many articles published this week (I'll turn it up later): As distinct from the near universal ~45 degree angle, elbow up arm angle, i.e. wrist in line w/ the forearm to optimize muscular alignment along with directional release (not over the top, but along that ~37 degree optimal trajectory); AE had his wrist at exactly 90 degrees. This can often result in a subtle elbow drop and/or a looping release, maybe approaching a sub-optimal 40 degree trajectory.
[Note carefully the distinction between the empirically determined (See Throws Manual and other T&FN books) ~37 degree optimal Trajectory, and the ~45 degree forearm alignment (anything less would entail illegal 'throwing', not Putting) that AE adheres to quite precisely]
This Pic could obviously be an aberration; and Harry Marra is shown off to the side, likely concentrating on AE's well-positioned "block" w/ left leg--thanks to the consistency of the ol' Shuffle;~) BTW, this little "tweak" should have absolutely nothing to do with the Shuffle, per se.
And looping puts are not one of AE's problems, as I've noted his near eye-level delivery of at least one 14m put in the OlyTrials. But, if true, that would mean that he's effecting other, equally subtle motions to compensate for that errant (in my view) wrist position.
FWIW, in well-kept Faith.
