One golfer said that from all the physical changes he’s tried to get over the yips and improve his putting, the long putter was the most helpful.

"I’ve tried all variations and permutations of grips, grip strength, shaft length, shaft weight, head weights, face angles, head types, long putters. Various stances and grips, postures etc. Long putter was the most helpful."

But as I’ve discussed, the putting yips are a mental issue, not a physical problem... Some of these solutions can be a short-term fix but will not last.

Another golfer said that he’s changed his putting routine and it seems to help:

"I think it’s all my mental side of putting that fails me. Do you think a new routine that I've adopted will help? It seems to be at the moment."

Personally, I would much rather you make a change in your routine rather than your grip, shaft, or mechanics.

A putting routine should help you focus on the process, be confident, and trust in your stroke.

Remember that most of the anxiety comes from focusing too much on the outcome and the aftermath of a bad putt or missing a short putt.

The aftermath is about fear of embarrassment or not being respected.
When you define a specific routine to occupy your mind in the present moment, this helps deflect the pressure you might feel.

You certainly don’t want to focus on outcome, such as:
--Trying to miss the putt.
--Trying not to yip the putt.
--Worrying about how it will look if you miss a three-footer.
--How it will feel if you have 38 putts in the round.

Staying in the moment means focusing on the ingredients of your putting routine one step at a time.

The most important time to stay in the moment is when you are set up over the ball ready to fire (this is when the gremlins are most likely to attack).

What should you focus on?

Making a good stroke?

No!

It depends on the type of learner and performer you are, but anything to help you free up your mind over the ball will help.

For example, the simplest is focusing on your intended line (or a spot) and reacting to that line. Or feel players might prefer to focus on pace and feel the putt down the line.

Odyssey, the #1 Putter in Golf, today announced its new
EXO line of putters.

EXO creates maximum forgiveness from advanced multi-material construction, and its new White Hot Microhinge insert which combines legendary White Hot feel and sound with immediate roll from our Microhinge Insert technology. EXO features three of Odyssey’s most popular mallet head shapes:

Seven, Rossie, and Indianapolis, and each of these
models is offered in face balanced and toe hang options to fit a golfer’s stroke.

Odyssey EXO putters will be available nationwide on May 18, 2018.

Key Points:

Maximum Forgiveness: With lightweight 6061 milled aluminum in the center, Odyssey engineers can take weight away from the center of the head and redistribute it to the perimeter of the head, which is made of 17-4 stainless steel.

This concentrates weight, driving up the Moment of Inertia, or MOI (which is related to forgiveness), significantly for more consistent ball speeds and directional control.

White Hot Microhinge Insert: Combines legendary White Hot Feel with our proven Microhinge Insert Technology that creates immediate forward roll for more consistent distance and directional control.

Mallets (and Mallets With Toe Hang):

The Odyssey EXO line of putters provides face balanced options with double bend shafts (which reduce face rotation in the stroke) and toe hang options with our S necks (which allow for more face rotation in the stroke) on each model. Whatever a golfer’s stroke path, Odyssey has ultra high MOI mallets to fit his game.

Head Shapes:

Seven, Indianapolis, Rossie (all available in face balanced and toe hang models)

New Product Introduction Price: $299.99

SPECIAL NOTICE

Please don’t be fooled by imitators of the Professional Golf Teachers Association of America. It has come to our attention that several other organizations are attempting to hijack our reputation, our certification designations, mimic our unique programs, especially our Home Study module, and in some cases, leverage even our name as their own. The name “Professional Golf Teachers Association of the United States”, formerly operated by National Golf Schools has ceased to exist after a settlement was reached between the parties.

The Professional Golf Teachers Association of America is and always will be the foremost 100% professional golf teaching certification institute in the world.

While these other programs and teaching organizations direct their marketing materials and resources to the targeting of all applicants (to cover their extensive advertising and marketing costs), whether qualified or not, the PGTAA’s philosophy and target market is that individual/golfer who desires to be a teaching professional in the field and not just an enthusiast. Since 1997 our mandatory personal telephone interview helps the PGTAA maintain their high level of members appreciated by all in the golf industry .

We do not offer various levels of certifications designed to separate you from your money and whose “membership/certification/levels of instructor” cards are useless and of zero value in the golf industry.

When comparing the PGTAA to ANY other teaching institution, whether PGA, LPGA or USGTF, our cost to become a fully certified golf teaching professional is $995.00 via the Home Study module or $2495.00 via the On-Site module. Going through the certification programs of the aforementioned organizations will cost you in excess of $5,000.00!

Most importantly, the PGTAA is 100% all about teaching.

The PGTAA has over 50 Tour players including Master’s, PGA and US Open Champions, who avail themselves of our members teaching expertise.

There is only one Professional Golf Teachers Association of America, and you can always find us at www.PGTAA.com.
