Steve, to fix the shanks I take all the stuff in my right pocket and move it to my left pocket.

Jaime Gaskin says:

I wouldn’t be surprised if Austin had trouble from time to time with this. His timing opening and closing the club face with the wrists combined with shaping the ball would be challenging to be consistent.

Hi Steve, in my experience thankfully the shanks is not an issue. I have seen many people suffer from them, some stand too close to the ball, some never release the club head, some try to play a fade from a closed stance and some just hit down too hard on the ball especially on hard ground, their hands get way too far forward. Would you say it would be hard to shank the ball with your hands level or even slightly behind the ball. Love the videos, I crave driver videos
