Golf Tip: Cure the Yips

January 11, 2013

Have the yips? Change your grip!

This golf tip addresses one of the most common putting problems: the Yips. The yips happen when we get tightness in our grip on the backside of the putter grip. One way to combat this common putting ailment is simply to change your grip. If you switch to a “claw” grip, your dominant hand is no longer touching the back of the putter, preventing the tightness from occurring at impact. Instead, you can just push the putter out of your grip, rather than holding on tight.

Minnesota PGA Professional Steve Fessler demonstrates this golf tip in the video below:
