  1. Thanks for the tip on the YIPS. As a former competitive bowler, I experienced the yips in critical situations. It took a while for me to understand why and you have hit it on the head. It’s all in the head. I found what helped me out was to have a plan. I would have a tendency to think in the future rather than have my mind on the present shot. My mind might race with many thoughts rather than that shot before me. I might think “I have to make this shot” which put more pressure on myself. I realized my mind was my enemy in certain situations. By recognizing when my mind was racing or getting ahead of myself, I was able to make a plan to help me relax and focus. It’s tough to practice those situations however meditating with a strong feeling of pressure situations helped put me in that mindset and I learned that when those situations did occur, it was OK. Meditation allowed me to find a way to focus my mind so when pressure was on me, I recognized it and told myself to focus on what I have practiced and trust myself. I enjoy your tips and Thank You for doing these. I hope the experiences from bowling help me become a better golfer mentally and physically.
