Chipping & Pitching Yip – The Cure

    Chipping & Pitching Yip

    Hi Robin here.

    Now if you’re struggling withyour chipping or your pitching, making good contact with the ball.

    Perhaps you feel likeyou’ve got the yips.

    I’ve got a couple simple tips for you.

    Now it’s a deep subject, butthere’s no question your anxiety level will be high, you probably feel like you’ve gota sudden urge or sudden uncontrollable hit at impact, you get all sorts of differenttypes of shots.

    It takes away your enjoyment from the game.

    Now my two tips are quite simple.

    The first one is to control your breathing throughout the swing.

    What I want you to dobefore you make the swing is inhale, and then throughout the entire swing exhale.

    If youcan control your breath you will feel your anxiety level reduce, it will take away thatsudden urge to hit at impact.

    If you do hit it at impact, if you have that uncontrollableacceleration you will hear it in you breath.

    Let’s give it a try.

    Okay, the second one, it’s very similar butrather than controlling your breath what we are going to do is we are going to hum.

    Youare going to hum continually throughout the entire swing.

    Trying to keep the tone consistentand even.

    If you have that sudden acceleration at impact you’ll hear it in the tone of yourhum.

    Again you can start to practice evening that out, again reducing your anxiety level,smoothing out your tempo.

    Let’s give it a try.

    I had the smallest acceleration there,I could hear it in the tone of my hum, that’s something for me to improve on.

    So a coupleof simple tips, I hope that gets you back on track.

    I hope that improves your chippingand gets your back enjoying the game again.
