Whether or not Tiger Woods is suffering from the chipping "yips," several mental game experts agree that the former world No. 1 is paying a steep price for becoming too technically focused on his swing.Woods stunned the golfing world last week when he missed the cut at the Phoenix Open, posting the worst score of his professional career as he struggled to a mind-boggling 11-over-par 82 in the second round at the TPC Scottsdale.Playing only his second event in five months after enduring back problems for much of last year, Woods was especially poor with his chipping and hit shots fat or thin, occasionally resorting to a putter or a bump-and-run approach instead.Lardon, whose book "Mastering golf's Mental Game" was published earlier this year, agreed with Parent that Woods' chipping problems were "100 percent mental" though he also believed time was taking a toll.
