The can't miss golf gyroscope

In 2011 a golf gyroscope was invented by Shayne Verner and David Capaldo. The device was designed as a training aid for use in practice to overcome the yips. The yips is the name given to involuntary movements, in golf this occurs when putting. Other names given to it include twitches, staggers, jitters and jerks. A high percentage of golfers get the yips at some point in their game. Although the reason why it occurs is not fully understood it is thought to be partially psychological. The product called “The Can't Miss” is essentially a gyro-stabilizer that attaches to a golf club/putter. The golfer plays as normal and is still in control of the direction of the swing. If the golfer does get a 'yip' while swinging the gyro-stabilization keeps the golf club pointing in the right direction. The golfer also feels some resistance to the 'yip' from gyro-stabilization which if repeated over time reduces the occurrence of the yips. A very interesting and novel use of a gyroscope.
