Over the last 10 years or more, the Author, Jonathan Adler, has been helping golfers to overcome their yips. Here he shares his experiences and techniques.
“You may be surprised to learn about the true cause of your yips.
It is not a mechanical issue. Although it is true to say that when you play your chip shot or your putt, your technique does break down, this is not the cause of the problem.
Trying to fix your technique does not address the cause of the problem. It is like removing the leaves of a weed. It may temporarily seem to have cured the problem but unless you get to the root and pull it out, your problems will remain.
No, the true cause of your yips is you. Your very own mind has become conditioned to respond in this way when you play your chip or putt. Isn’t this why when you are feeling relaxed, perhaps practicing alone, your yip can be less severe?
The way out of the problem lies in the same place. Inside You.
You must strengthen and condition your mind to remain calm and concentrated when you play these shots.
The exercises and routines in this e-book, if practiced regularly, will do just that, strengthen and condition your mind.
If you are patient and persistent you are bound to be successful in overcoming your yips”
