Shanking every iron

Stu Patton

Q: I have been a low handicapper all my life. I practice all the time. For some reason, I recently started shanking every iron I have been hitting. I have tried a lot of things. Nothing is working. First time in my career this has happened. What am I doing?

A: Your hands/arms are coming into the ball too much from the inside-out and are swinging too far out and away from your body towards the target line. Try pulling the handle more in to you (nearer your belt buckle) and more to the left during impact.
