more fancy footwork: this one cures the shanks
▶ shank one shot, you try to brush it off and move on. Shank the next? Full panic sets in. Before you walk off the course and put your clubs on eBay, let me help. First, understand that the shanks most often occur when the golfer has moved too close to the ball at impact. Sometimes we unknowingly drift toward our toes as we swing, and this causes the club to strike the ball near or on the hosel. So what can you do? try this: At address, lift your toes inside your shoes ( right), and keep them up when you swing. This will prevent you from moving toward the ball and clanking one off the hosel.
