Jose Altuve may have the yips, but he's also raking

  Jose Altuve may have the yips, but he's also raking Jose Altuve, the Houston Astros' embattled second baseman, is having a rough go of it in the field right now. The prevailing diagnosis is a case of the yips. At any rate, Altuve's sudden inability to make routine throws cost the Astros dearly in Games 2 and 3 of the American League Championship Series and played an outsized role in helping the Tampa Bay Rays grab a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. In Game 4, however, with the Astros on the brink of elimination, Altuve did a fine job redeeming himself, albeit in the batter's box, blasting a solo shot off right-hander Tyler Glasnow in his first at-bat of the game to give Houston a first-inning lead.

Hearn, from Burlington, Ont., is on the PGA Tour's players committee and had to review the pro golf circuit's return-to-play plan in the spring. When he returned to competitive play he admits that he was distracted by the global health crisis and it affected his focus on the course.

"I was struggling, just like everybody, just sort of socially, the emotional effects of everything that was going on," said Hearn on Thursday from Southampton, Bermuda. "It just wasn't the best for me.

"Some guys played well through the summer, and that's fine. Everyone dealt with things differently."

Hearn finished 99th in the FedExCup rankings in the 2020 season. Most of his success, however, came in the fall swing of the season, including an eighth place finish at the Bermuda Championship on Nov. 3.

From February to the end of July, he missed the cut at eight consecutive cuts, finally seeing the third round at the Barracuda Championship where he tied for 48th on Aug. 2.

"We got through the hardest part of it, I think," said Hearn, who added that he and his wife had to have difficult conversations with their three young children and also come up with ways to keep their elderly parents safe.

"Hopefully, the world's going to be moving in the right direction soon and we'll put this behind us."

The 41-year-old Canadian feels like he's back in the swing of things to start the 2021 season. He tied for 14th at the Safeway Open on Sept. 13 and tied for 33rd two weeks later at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship before missing the cut at the Sanderson Farms Championship.

"My goals this year are to see more consistency in my game and try to keep my game at a high level more often," said Hearn.

On Thursday, Hearn shot a 3-under 68 to finish the first round of the Bermuda Championship tied with Michael Gligic of Burlington, Ont.

Roger Sloan of Merritt, B.C., was a shot ahead of them, while Graham De Laet of Weyburn, Sask., was 3-over par on the day.
