yips
 n.— «The grass between the ball and the blade will cause a bit of run so allow for it and practice this shot at least twenty times the next time you go out, not that you will perfect it that quickly but having practiced it—it won’t give you those mental yips the next time you’re in that spot.» —“It’s Well Worth While to Practice on Getting Out of Golfing Trouble” by Hutt Martin Nevada State Journal (Reno) Aug. 11, 1940.
