He's got the yips

Sam Horsfield got a lot of attention this week at the 2018 Turkish Airlines Open, and it wasn't for the right reason, which was that he finished in the top 10 of one of the European Tour's biggest events.

It was because he was seen standing over his ball for an obscene amount of time. 

Horsfield took to Twitter to explain why he's taking so long over the ball. It's not on purpose.

So I’ve seen some tweets about me standing over the ball for a long time the last few days and I want to address it. This is not something I am not trying to do and its something I am working hard on to try and fix. I am doing what my team and I feel is necessary to fix the problem. Thankfully I can still compete in big golf tournaments while this issue persists but still my focus is to work on getting back to the routine I have had since I started playing.

This apparently is something that some golfers have issues with. 

LPGA winner Danielle Kang stood over the ball for 4 minutes during a shot in the first round of the LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship, unable to pull back the club.

This once again proves the Yips are a real thing.
