Golf tip of the week: Cure the shanks in the springtime | News, Sports, Jobs

The club should remain in the center of the shoulder box on the takeaway.
At the beginning of every golf season, there is a good chance that most golfers will experience the dreaded shanks sooner or later.
The word shank is so powerful. Golfers are afraid to say it out loud. It robs a golfer of confidence and scares them so badly they are afraid to take the club back. However, it can be easily cured once you understand the cause.
The main cause of the shank is not taking the club back with a one-piece takeaway. The club must stay in front of the chest, the left shoulder must start the backswing
If the club starts back ahead of the chest, it is impossible to return the face of the club square at impact.
