Golf Tip – Yips

April 27, 2016 Posted by Matt

yipsDo you have the “yips”?  Putting yips occur when a golfer uses his or her hands in a quick flipping motion to stroke the ball.  It happens to the best of us.  If you watched this year’s Masters then you saw the yips in action when Ernie Els had a 7 putt on the first hole with 6 of the putts being less than two feet.  Anxiety is often the cause and it can be difficult to fix.  A good first step is to putt a jumbo grip on your putter.  The extra large grip will help you keep your hands and wrists quiet.  Test out a larger grip and see if it helps solve the problem.
