Yips and how to get rid of them or get "cured"

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Not sure why, but I get the yips when I play with strangers or strange people.  It just makes me nervous and I know it is just real silly.  The other day I was playing solo and I was on the fourth tee.  I was over the ball and a cart with two super hot people pulled up behind the tee and was waiting for me to hit.  I just stood there over the ball and waited for them to drive by.  But since they was playing, they just wanted me to hit and get the hell out of the way.  I just stood there some more thinking - how the hell did I get myself in this situation and what could I do to resolve it.  I just stood there frozen for liek 5 minutes and couldn't pull the trigger.  They pulled up closer and I just kept my head down real hard.  I heard one of them ask me if I was all right.  I was thinking "yeah, I'm fine dummy.  I always do this!  OH GOD!!!!!!"  I finally hit but my palms were so sweatty that the club sliped out of my hands during my backswing and I jsut froze again for it seemed like eons.  By that time there were like 12 people wainting for me the get out of the way.  

 

I checked out "Zen Putting", did that help anybody.  Or maybe i shoudl get one of the new Jetspeed drivers.

Thanks for the pictures I get from your post. New driver is always a good idea.

Yeah I would just buy any of the new :tmade: drivers.  That will definitely solve this.

Next time yell "I have to pee." and run into the woods.  They'll get bored and move on instead of staring at you.

Make sure you lay your driver (the new one) down perpendicular to your line and leave the ball tee'd up when you do this. That'll let everyone else know that the tee box is reserved until you get back.

:-$

 

My guess is that you've got that image of your freaky avatar staring at you from over the hole every time you putt. You might want to start by changing that....Heck, your avatar scares the hell out of me every time I see it.

Or maybe Gilberg should just urinate on the tee box, making sure to soak the tee markers on either side.  You know, to assert dominance.  That way the people behind him will know to stay off his territory, and they will probably just run back to the clubhouse and tell stories of hisgreatness, and thus leaving him alone to enjoy his round.

His avatar looks like one of those 1950s or 60s "SciFi" movie monsters/aliens or whatever.
