Working With the Yips

Recent research has indicated that over 30% of golfers have experienced the yips at some time in their career. Yet, there is very little (none until now) coach education on how we help golfers unlucky enough to have this highly debilitating affliction.

As a coach, there is nothing worse than feeling helpless as your student struggles on in front of you, yet a standard technique based intervention will often just make things worse.



By definition, the yips is an involuntary movement so trying to just change the action via a normal technical intervention is going to be a frustrating experience. Where we put our attention will make a massive difference to your ability to make a smooth and uninterrupted stroke.



In 2017 I got in touch with Gordon Morrison to see about putting together a training workshop for professional coaches working with the yips. Gordon is a PGA Professional, a national coach and is researching the yips directly as his PhD. What is clear from the workshop is that Gordon and I take a slightly different approach to the problem but our methods are entirely complimentary.

To learn more on how we deal with the yips you can listen to my chat with Gordon on our Webinar at the link below.
