Seems like someone could make a club without an exposed hossle

Justin Paul says:

Great video

John Mendes says:

When I hit with my irons, specifically my 6 iron, the ball has a tendency to travel in a sharp left path, almost horizontal to where I'm standing. If the target is 12 o'clock, the ball travels between 9 and 10 o'clock if that makes sense – its a hard left turn and virtually no distance. Would this be considered a shank? Would the drills from this video be good to practice or would you recommend something else? My guess is that I'm hitting the ball with the part of the hosel closest to me. Thanks for the videos, very helpful!

Davey Pockets says:

Does this tip translate to the driver? I'm decent with wedges and higher irons, but struggle off the tee.

Dan Cordia says:

Great video. I did your two ball drill by addressing outside ball and hit inside ball. Definitely helped!! I was coming too far from inside which was causing the shanks with wedges. I recommend hitting plastic balls in back yard with wedges if possible for those who have mental issue with shanks. No pressure on outcome or being at the range with others. It helped me work on my swing plane.

Leonel Alanis, Jr says:

"Idk how I did it, I just did it" Awesome hit!

E. G. Flores says:

Most golfers that shank, move their hips towards the ball instead of turning the hips.

Tony Khan says:

Sucks I hate the shanks I was going 4 under after 13 holes finished the round with an 81??? all my irons and wedges were off the hosel I was so pissed I broke my 60 wedge smh!! I’ll get them from time to time like a disease hopefully this helps!!

6string - Dave says:

I finally found the cause of my heel shots and shanks mostly with wedges and short irons. I tried everything I could find to cure this. Nothing worked to actually fix it. I stood farther away, closer to the ball, placed an object (box, head cover, another ball) outside the ball. Tried to hit off the toe, couldn't do it! The fix for me? Club shaft angle at address. My club shaft plane at address was too flat. When I raised it so the handle pointed above my belt I now hit the sweet spot consistently and can now hit toward the toe of the club. I haven't seen any so called expert instructors mention this as a cause.

Richard Harvey says:

The trick of setting up on the outside ball really worked for me!

MrZocor says:

balls never sit up like that in any fairway I have ever golfed on. I wouldn't shank any if they did.

Corek BleedingHollow says:

So just set up with the ball on the toe side of center face at address? Common sense.

David Randall says:

One shank a round can really mess with your mental
