  • AbstractBackground: The ‘yips’ is a psychoneuromuscular impediment affecting execution of the putting stroke in golf. [...] Key Method Four self-reported yips and 3 nonaffected golfers putted 3 scenarios using an uncorrected grip and a standard length putter. Heart rate was superimposed on the videotape and the putter grip was instrumented with strain gauges to measure grip force. Electromyograms and relative putting performance were also measured.
