Author’s Tips for Golfers Include Proven Technique for Beating the Yips

KALAMAZOO, Mich., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ — For many capable golfers, nothing makes the heart pound and the nerves rattle more than a bad case of the putting yips. This medical condition has been the subject of research at the Mayo Clinic and has plagued golfers of all playing abilities. In his new book, “Master Golf … and You Master Life Itself: (or How I Cured My Yips … Yeah, You Heard Me)” (published by AuthorHouse), Kurt Pugh reveals his signature putting technique that cured his yips and allows him to putt better than ever.

“It is estimated that approximately 25 percent of all avid golfers suffer from some form of the yips. So if you fall into this group, I hope my technique will work for you as it’s worked for me,” Pugh writes. He takes readers step-by-step through his proven yip-ending technique, which involves taking your dominant hand out of your putting stroke while using a long-shafted putter.

“Master Golf … and You Master Life Itself” is not just for those suffering from the yips. Pugh also includes “Helpful Tips and Playing Strategies” for avid golfers and beginners. His straightforward instruction is infused with humor and is easy to read and remember. The book offers “Curtis-isms” such as: “The secret to saving your round after a bad hole, if you think about it … is not to think about it.” Or: “The key to putting is not how far you hit it … it’s how far you have to hit it.”

Other tips include how to eliminate common swing faults and how to improve your tee and approach shots. Learn why Kurt believes that “Distance in golf is more important on the green than it is off the tee.” Perfect for golfers who are new to the game and those serious players who could use some refreshers, “Master Golf … and You Master Life Itself” is filled with practical guidance on how to lower your scores and improve your game.

About the Author: Kurt Pugh has a 30-year career in advertising and marketing. He earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Hope College and a Master of Business Administration from Wake Forest University. Pugh’s introduction to golf came at the age of 10, when his father gave him a “sawed-off” two-iron to hit golf balls in the field behind their home. With no formal instruction, Kurt picked up the game quickly and later became the captain of his golf team during his senior year at Hope College. He recorded his first (and only … so far) hole-in-one in 1979 and currently plays to a 9-handicap.
