Eight hours of real-time instruction via webcam (Facetime, Meet, Hangouts, Duo apps) with Jim Waldron over a period of two months, broken down into four sessions, spaced about 15-18 days apart. First session: three hours. Second session: two hours. Third session: two hours. Fourth session: one hour.
Most of the sessions are done indoors in front of your home computer webcam, but one session, most often the fourth, is done on the practice range, in real-time using your smartphone webcam.
Most of our students achieve complete elimination of their yip impulse by the end of Program One. Some of our students with very severe and long-standing yips issues will require Program Two to affect a complete cure.
Five hours total instruction time broken down into three sessions of 1.5 to two hours. Most of these sessions are done indoors in front of your home computer webcam, but we may do a one hour session on the practice range.
Short Game and Putting 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 five hours. About half of that time is done indoors in front of your home computer webcam, and the other half on the practice range.
Putting Yips will also often require some additional time working with Mr. Waldron on mechanics: normally about one to two hours is sufficient time to make the required changes.
