The yips often happen because you’re losing track of the ball at the top of your swing with the eye that’s farthest from the ball. It’s pretty easy to understand why; the ball shifts from your focus as you turn away in the backswing, and requires adjustment on the down, which can be tricky. To counteract the “cyclops syndrome”, one of our PGA Professionals like to use a surprising but helpful technique. In this lesson, we teach you what TJ Tomasi recommends during his coaching programs!
