▶ 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.
