How to cure the YIPS



The dreaded yips come in many forms, from the occasional twitch to the total inability to even take the putter back.  The Magic Putter has many anti-yip design features. The Magic Putter has helped a number of players who have a milder case of the yips. The center-shafted Magic putter is designed to swing straight back and straight through with the blade square to the line throughout the stroke.

 The heavier mass of the Magic putter head and the momentum of the straight back/straight through stroke helps to keep the blade traveling down the line longer. This is especially important with the short putts. The Magic putter swings itself a lot like a pendulum. The Magic putter also simplifies putting.

Can using the wrong putter cause the yips?  One of the major causes of the yips is ill-fitting putters. Getting a custom-fitted putter is sound advice for any serious golfer. The number one problem is that many of today's putters are too light and or ill-designed for the task. The majority of today's most popular putters are end shafted. Many are designed to swing on an inside to square to inside arc with the face rotating like a swinging gate. The blade is only square to the line at one point in the stroke. Ball position then becomes extremely important especially on putts in the yip zone. Starting the ball on your chosen line is one of the most important factors in successful short putting.

Any problems with your putting stroke can also be compounded by using a putter which is too light. When you use a light putter you need to supply the majority of the power with your hands, arms, and wrists. There is less momentum in the stroke and less stability at impact with a lighter putter. When you swing a lighter putter you do all the work. The Magic putter will swing itself if you just get it started.

The momentum from the swinging of the Magic putter is a contributing factor to consistently rolling the ball purely.

 Almost all right-handed players end up with a more structurally sound left-handed putting stroke. Many find they have a much more beautiful left-handed putting stroke.
