The chipping yips are no laughing matter, but their like a car wreck — you just can’t look away. Unfortunately for Canadian golfer and Olympic team member Graham DeLaet, the dreaded yips reared their ugly head at his nation’s open this week at Glen Abbey. DeLaet had previously taken some time off to deal with the “incredible anxiety while chipping/pitching.”
I'm dealing with incredible anxiety while chipping/pitching right now. It's not fun. I needed to WD to get it sorted out and get back ASAP.

Here’s hoping DeLaet can find himself out of this dark place. The yips are something you don’t wish upon your worst golfing enemy.
