Stop Shanking Golf Shots

I have been playing golf for a little while and carry a 24 handicap. Recently, I have started shanking the ball. It is embarassing! What can I do to stop?

I will get right to it then:
  1. Make sure when you are addressing the golf ball as well as through the impact zone that you are in balance. When people get into hitting this unspeakable shot, the shank, typically their weight goes to their toes especially during impact.

  2. Make sure you are not standing too close to the ball. As you take your address your hands should be underneath your chin.

  3. The final thing would be to make sure you are turning to and not sliding toward the target. To do this make sure you are all of the way up on the right toe of your shoe as in the picture.

Use this info to help you and let us know how it goes!!!
