Ernie Els tried to explain how he had six-putted from three feet on one hole and then missed a series of mind-boggling short putts on others, he described his condition as if there was some kind of "short" in his brain. We all know what it really is. The dreaded Yips.
The term the yips was coined by the Scottish golfer Tommy Armour, who said it was a "brain spasm that impairs the short game." "Versions of it have been known over the years by many names, among them 'freezing,' 'the waggles,' 'the staggers,' 'the jerks,” 'whiskey fingers,' and 'the yips.' That last term is the one that’s used almost universally today.'"
More often, the yips are a "focal dystonia," a neurological condition that provokes involuntary movements around specific actions.
