Overcoming Anxiety on The Green

How Do You Approach The Putting Yips?

Do you have a lot of nervousness and anxiety once you get to the green?

Dr. Patrick Cohn, golf psychology expert and author of the Golfer’s Mental Edge CD program, teaches amateur to tour professional golfers how to improve their mental game of golf using golf psychology strategies developed over the last 20 years of his career.

In this week’s golf psychology session, mental game of golf expert and author of The Mental Game of Golf, Dr. Cohn, answers a question from a golfer who struggles with anxiety on the green.

Here is the questions Jacob asks this week:

“I want to find a way to control my nerves… Once I get to the green I start shaking from nerves and anxiety and obviously miss every single putt no matter the length. I’d like to know if you have some type of remedy for this?”

COHN: “Jacob, what you are describing sounds to me like the putting yips…”
