To avoid hitting the shanked shot off of the heel, we want to concentrate on your arms and the club not coming out so much, but more vertically in towards you. Bringing your hands — and therefore your clubhead — in towards your body is taking the heel of the club away from the ball. Likewise, getting more vertical in your backswing restricts the club from how far behind you it can get, thus making it much harder to get shallow and more in front of you on the downswing.
"Serious about your golf game? Willing to put the work in this off season to improve? If yes, you will want to sign up for the new Plane Truth Golf App. It is a systematic approach supported by online lessons, a library of state of the art swing video clips, a Forum, where ideas are posted for comment. Most important is a well thought out system that allows you to best understand the key parts of downswing, backswing, address and impact/ follow through. Identity your swing issue and use a system of shallow or steep corrections. I am a new user of this app but not new to Plane Truth Golf."
