Let the teacher who works with Tiger Woods, the world’s best player, help you cure the yips—the frustrating problem that can cause even the greatest players to miss short putts, jab chip shots over the green, or miss fairways by eighty yards off the tee. “The yips can make you feel like you want to quit golf and take up fishing full time. I know. I’ve been there. But Hank’s experience and sensitivity to the problem make him unique in the world of golf instructors. If you have the yips, you couldn’t be in any better hands than Hank Haney’s.” —Mark O’Meara, from the Foreword to Fix the Yips Forever Most golfers think of the “yips” as a psychological affliction, a confidence problem that causes them to lose control of their game because of a split-second glitch. But scientists are now starting to unlock the true root of the problem: focal dystonia, a motor-neural malfunction that causes a player’s brain to distort the message being sent to the muscles. Acclaimed golf instructor Hank Haney used these discoveries to overcome his twenty-year battle with the yips, and now he shares his breakthrough regimen that can “rewire” any golfer who struggles with the yips.Showcasing dozens of practical, hands-on techniques for eliminating the yips from putting, chipping, and the full swing, Fix the Yips Foreverdelivers the brand of prescriptive advice and drills that have made Haney one of the most sought after golf instructors in the world. This groundbreaking handbook features more than 100 black-and-white photographs, including reproductions of diagnostic screens and Haney’s ultrasound “yips measurement System” for hands-on yip-free training. If you can’t make it to Haney’s Golf Ranch for a personal diagnosis, Fix the Yips Foreveris the next best thing.
