    Love this tip. So simple and just common sense. Have had bouts of shanks with short pitches that have cost me many strokes. I've been using a straight-back approach which works "most" of the time but this tip will address the real problem. Thanks for your many valuable tips. Wayne Kivi, Cape Cod (82 y/o)
