Yips

Light / Dark

Ward Jarvis has gone from caddie to theology professor to firefighter to fixer of the yips. Jarvis joins host Tom Coyne on the TGJ Podcast to explain the science behind what he refers to as a “periodic loss of an automatic ability,” and how he helped three-time PGA Tour winner Brendon Todd overcome them. Jarvis also details how his own struggle with stuttering led him to teaching players of all skill levels how to build new memory patterns and find their flow.
