Fix That Shank

The dreaded shank is the most feared shot in golf, and it is caused by the ball coming in contact with the Hosel of the club. There are a couple of main reasons for this with the first caused by standing too close to the ball, and the second a golf swing starting too far on the inside, which in turn forces the downswing to rebound to the outside causing the hosel of the golf club to hit the golf ball instead of the clubface.

Here is highlighted a good golf drill. What you need to work on is the clubhead path on the way back and on the way down. You can fix the swing path by practicing the following drill. Firstly place a cardboard box just outside the ball line parallel to the target, if you swing back and through poorly you will come in contact with the box and shank the ball.
