The boffins now believe that Botox, one of the most poisonous naturally occurring substances, might stop these shakes.

To prove their point, American researchers at Arizona State University monitored 50 golfers of which 25 suffered from the yips.

They found that shots of Botox can help players at crucial times.

And since Botox is not considered a performance-enhancing substance, it could well be used in competition.
