The Waldron Yips Cure Remote Lesson Programs

Waldron Yips Cure Program One: Breakthrough

Our Breakthrough program consists of four webcam sessions  with Jim Waldron – an initial 2.75 hour session, a 2.25 hour lesson 3-4 weeks later, another 1.5 hour lesson 3-4 weeks after the second lesson, and then a 45 minute followup session. This series covers the root causes of the yips, basic peak performance psychology concepts, and cutting-edge drills and exercises designed by Mr. Waldron to quickly show our client how to breakthrough to a yip free swing or stroke.  Golfers with mild to moderate intensity yips will experience significant improvement from this program.    

Fee: $775.

Waldron Yips Cure Program Two: The Next Step 

Clients with severe intensity yips will usually require one or more additional sessions to affect a complete cure.   Any additional individual one hour sessions are billed at $110 per hour.

(See Yips Videotaping Instructions below.)

Phone Consultation

This method works very well for mental game instruction. Minimum of 30 minutes of consultation at $65. Additional time is billed in 15 minute increments at $120 per hour.
