This program is designed for the golfer who yips less than 50% of his or her golf shots, and the shot outcomes when yipped are not catastrophic, ie somewhat "manageable" misses. 7.5 hours of live webcam instruction with Jim Waldron. Includes the following types of yips: putting yips for golfers of 12 handicaps or lower; full swing yips - for golfers of 12 handicaps or lower. Golfers with mild to moderate anxiety, and moderate loss of confidence will benefit from this program.
This program is designed for the golfer with high intensity yips and/or high frequency of yipped shots. It is especially beneficial for golfers with severe anxiety, fear and total loss of confidence. Designed with the following golfers in mind: any golfer with short game yips, any golfer whose handicap is a 13 or higher (average score 85 or higher) who suffers from full swing yips, any golfer whose handicap is 13 or higher who suffers from putting yips. 10.5 hours of live webcam instruction with Jim Waldron.
Short Game Yips:
In our experience, the vast majority of golfers with moderate to severe short game yips (chipping, pitching, distance wedges, bunker shots) will require additional instruction with Jim Waldron to address mechanical flaws and "missing fundamentals" that make it very difficult for the golfer to consistently make solid contact between ball and clubface. Sometimes Mr. Waldron will recommend to start with the mechanical changes first, before engaging with the more purely psychological issues of his Yips Cure Program. The amount of instruction time needed for the mechanical improvements will vary depending on the student, but typically will range from three to six hours. About half of that time is done indoors in front of your home computer webcam, and the other half on the practice range.
Tuition: $130 hour
Full Swing Yips:
Mid to high handicap golfers (12-15 or higher) with full swing yips will usually require additional instruction on swing mechanics to support and enhance the psychological side of the main Yips Cure Program. This will typically be around two to four hours of additional instruction. About half of that time is done indoors in front of your home computer webcam, and the other half on the practice range.
