Golf: EFT improves your score and eliminates YIPS

Golfers in over 3o countries are now using tapping to improve their score.

If you are playing golf and want to improve your score, perhaps even quickly and radically, read on to discover how others have done it, using tapping. I have here collected some interesting testimonial about golf players using tapping like Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to improve their score.

No wonder tapping is used by golfers! Playing golf, you have to keep your head clear. It is much a mental game, where you can’t force the win. The difference between number one and two is the ability to stay alert, but not tense. And EFT tapping is perfect for eliminating mental disturbances. It is proven to lower the stress response and reduces the shower or stress hormones in your body.

Tracey Vornbrock, Stephen Ladd, Dr Erin Shannon and others at has contributed with the below testimonials from their websites and interviews (in e.g. GolfWeek Magazine and  the Tapping Summit).

  “My putting was the only thing keeping me from winning several tournaments a year. I could sink them all day on the practice green, but never in the big tournaments. Everyone expected me to reach the par fives in two, but then hang on for par. Stephen took care of that in short order. Imagine their surprise when I started draining eagle putts!

“I met Stacey last year (2005), and it has helped me tremendously. I think tapping allows golfers to have more fun. I think it helps them focus more on one shot at a time instead of being focused on anxieties. I’ve worked with a couple of sports psychologists in the past, and it helped, but this (tapping) goes deeper. It helps you deal with things that are in your subconscious and are limiting your performance. What Stacey has helped me with the most is learning how to play in the present by eliminating doubts in my performance and ability. Her (tapping) technique erases the emotional attachment you have to negative performance situations. She’s basically eliminated those and put me back to square one.”
– Barry Conser, Professional Golfer

“My work with Stacey has made a major difference in my game. EFT is something you can use for everything. It’s a tremendous tool I wish I had known about a long time ago. Golf is a game of how you react mentally. One bad shot or hole can ruin a round. Tapping has improved how I think on the course, my calmness and my concentration. It calms you right away and makes you realize you’re in control of your emotions, of how you act and react in certain situations. I wish I had found Stacey when I was still playing football. She could have extended my career by at least four years. It has helped my golf, but it goes way beyond that. It has helped me in a lot of different areas in my life. My addiction is anger. I think it had a lot to do with the sports I played. Tapping has enabled me to step back and evaluate how I deal with different situations in everyday life. I find myself tapping all the time. I’m calmer. I’m a better golfer.

“I had this horrible career-ending injury to my knee. I had exhausted all possibilities. I had been through knee replacement surgery and my surgeon told me that there was really no reason for me to continue to have as much pain as I was having; my knee should be stronger and I should be able to do more things. Yet I really wasn’t able to do more things and I still had pain. I felt absolutely stuck. It was like I was dragging this leg along and it was so heavy. I just knew that there had to be some way to release the emotions and the trauma that was tied into the injury. Once Stacey and I started tapping, I started to release all those emotions that had been stored in my system. And once I started to release the emotions, my body began to heal and my leg just became lighter, the pain started to go away, and I was really able to do many more things. When you tap, you’re able to release the emotions that are tied into an injury or a thought about things that are going on. Once you release those, that allows you to then move on.”

“Through the use of EFT with Stacey, I have dramatically reduced my anxiety during tournaments. This allows my body and mind to work in harmony. Before EFT it was like listening to a radio station with a lot of static. Now I’m listening just to the music and I can enjoy it. On a personal level, nothing has approached the peace of mind and closure I’ve achieved regarding my son’s death that EFT has provided.”

“The Golf Manual is easy to use. It doesn’t take a lot of time and you can do it pretty much anywhere. Golf is a lot more fun because I feel like I’m more in control, and I feel like I can affect my performance more than I did before. I’d say it’s the best way to change yourself into something that you want to become.
– Niklas Lemke, Professional Golfer


“By working with Stacey and EFT I have freed up my mind and body to play better golf. It brings me back to what I’m doing on the golf course. I also use this technique during and between tournaments if I have trouble sleeping or my mind is racing. It quickly releases the stresses of the day and brings me back to a relaxed state.

“Stacey’s insights, techniques and counseling have literally been a life saver. I was essentially bound by injuries out of competitive professional golf. Regardless of a surgery and numerous rehab attempts, I found my old injuries still chasing me down in retirement and impeding my coaching, let alone my day-to-day life. Work with Stacey has revolutionized my recovery and has been a direct success to our golf program and my professional growth. I consider Stacey a mentor and integral part of successful performance. Her influence is rooted deeply in the growth of our players and my overall well-being. If you are serious to enjoy the success you deserve, tune in and trust Stacey. It’s well worth every moment.”

“Without fail, EFT has proven to be a foundation skill for relieving or eliminating mental and physical stress for athletes. One such referral was my first professional golf client. This proved to be a very rewarding and reinforcing referral, as it resulted in this individual winning the Minnesota PGA Senior State Match Play tournament in 2001. He attributed his win mainly to using EFT both before and during the tournament. I also recently worked with a club professional in Minnesota who made the cut to participate in the 2002 U.S. Open at Hazeltine Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota, largely due to EFT. Brent Thomson, PhD

“EFT used to eliminate golfers’ YIPS. …I advertised for golfers suffering with the yips to take part in a study, there was no shortage of volunteers and I chose a group of 5 based on their varying handicaps and ages which ranged from professional to double figure handicap, the youngest being 28 and the oldest 59. I asked each player to write a lengthy report prior to treatment describing their symptoms and how it affected their game, after the treatment they were asked to write a follow up report. I successfully cured all 5 out of 5 cases (of YIPS) using EFT by uncovering and eliminating emotional issues. This study was done 2 years ago so I recently contacted all who took part and they have all signed and dated a statement to say they are still YIP free to this present day.”
-Lynn Francis

“The start of every golf season was always terrifying for me, as I never knew how much worse the YIPS may have become, but now I look forward to the 2006 season with much excitement, fully confident that this terrible affliction (YIPS) has been finally exorcised by Lynn’s exceptional skills and ability. I also believe that, as a bonus to curing the YIPS, I am now a different person. I see things and react differently to situations in everyday life. I feel better. I know that this is as a direct result of the therapy I underwent and would recommend it to anyone.”
-Nigel Grice, 50-year-old golfer ex-sufferer of YIPS
