Goydos also admitted that “The third and the fourth putts were horrible.” He also dived into the difference between putting yips and flinches. He further went on to say that his condition is rather a subconscious one where in the middle of his putting stroke, he realises: ” you’re in big trouble, you need to adjust.”

He also added an element of humor by pointing out that when you miss three putts, you probably need to work on that; if you miss four, you need to go to the psychiatrist and if you miss five, you are comically bad.
