That's not pointing anywhere near the target.

It's closer to my back left pocket.

Not a lot different than this:

 

Nice golf shoes.

Am I the most inattentive person on TST. I didn't notice that "Shoeless Joe Jackson" was doing the putting demo.

"Build it and he will come."

Too easy but name the film.

Wrong, but close. :-P

Isn't it strange that no-one on this forum seems to have even the mildest version of the yips. They are already using the elbow thing or there are other efficient fixes. If so, please share.

My next thread will be discussing the dreaded shank or socket as they call it here.

Or not!

Most people aren’t going to overcome yips by doing this elbow thing.

It worked for me!

I was informed that my involuntary underarm roll was yips and this simple fix cured it forever. It used to be a conscious move which I have aged/developed unconsciously, over the years.

There's a guy at our course who it wouldn't help. He has yips that can only be described as Tourette's. He has no vocal problems and in normal life no movement tics but, my oh my, on the golf course.

He is a good friend of my dad and I had to partner him in a 2 player scramble. My dad (slyly) played with his daughter in the same flight.

The funniest and most painful 18 holes that I have ever played. I could write a book on it.
