Rule to follow to cure the yips

Here’s a rules to follow to cure yourself of the putting yips.

Don’t ever worry whether the ball goes in the hole or not. It really doesn’t matter.

Instead, put all your focus into whether you started the ball on the target line the way you wanted to, and if you did, do something to celebrate so that it conditions your mind and body to enjoy it more and associate positive experiences with it.

It’s because golfers get too attached to the feelings of making the putt and or missing the putt that causes them to freak out and exhibit yips like symptoms. So you have to totally disassociate yourself with the result of the putt and focus on your procedure.

If you can do this, then you’re on the right track for eliminating the yips altogether.
