|Fun Fact: Curse of the Yips
The average golfer who suffers from the yips is 45 years old and has been playing golf for 30 years. On average, the yips last for six years. Golf greats, who have been stricken with the yips include: Ben Hogan, Johnny Miller, Bernhard Langer, Sam Snead, and Tom Watson.
The yips began to strike Mac O'Grady shortly after the 1987 season when he earned a career-high $285,109. The next year he dropped to $116,153 and then to $40,090 in 1989. He was so desperate to cure his crippling case of the yips he donated $30,000 to the medical department at UCLA to study the problem.
