The yips plague every golfer at some point, and it can be very frustrating, but there are ways to counteract the unwelcome pushing or pulling that you’re encountering when you putt the golf ball. Michael Breed believes that a simple change in grip – whether you experiment with a “claw” grip or alter the placement of your hands – or trial with an alternative type of putter can help you gain better control over your putts.

But if all else fails, visit a local PGA professional to see if they can help you cure your case of the yips.
