    Posted: 12 December 2005 at 12:11am

I have been trying OPS for about 4 weeks. A couple of good solid contact during rounds but most of them was pull, pull hook and **SHANK**. My score was terrible. Finally last week, I cured the pull and pull hook by keeping my right elbow on my side and never let go from the side during DS and well past the impact. However, I still SHANK with my short irons. Especially half swing with my wedges. I used to be very comfortable with my wedges. Open stands, out-in swing on my toe-line and holding my left wrist to keep open the club face. Since I changed to OPS, I want to swing my wedges same way as my other clubs(One swing for all clubs) but what I get? **SHANKS**. Yesterday, I even shanked my sand wedge 3 times in a row from 80m the pin. Very, Very frustrating. I thinks this has to do with my right elbow as well but don't know what I'm doing wrong. Can someone help me with One Plane wedge shot set up and how to swing the wedge? Thanks for your advice.

Chuck, I think I have to get one now. I had a great round yesterday except about 8 shanks. The course I played is rated one of top ten in Australia and it was my first time playing there and I still got 30 stableford points with 8 shanks and 3 three putts. You can guess how solid my long game was. In terms of ball striking, it was the my best. I want to thank you and all the members who help me to where I am now. It was a great help.

Hi armuge,

Just wanted you to know that it is not only improper, but just possibly illegal in some parts of the golf world, under the penalty of a severe tramatization with a lob wedge, to even think of the "S" word, much less spell it out in a golf related forum. The "S"es are very, very contagious and as such it is very bad form to be spreading them around. However, if you must mention them, the proper form is S@#nks.

Regards,

Magic

Who says we golfers are a superstitious group?

Golf is 90% mental, and 20% physical!

Hi 01,

Nothing superstitious about it. It is a well know medical fact that the "S"es are nothing short of fatal to a round of golf and a decent score if not treated immediately. Just witness the original post of armuge above as proof. They are so contagious that they can very quickly infect an entire foursome if left unchecked. The treatment can be something as simple as a quick tip from a playing partner, to a trip to see a swing doctor, or in the case where extreme measures are called for, total quarantine of the infected party or parties until the crisis has been resolved and the "S"es are not longer an issue. Then and only then is the offending party or parties to be allowed to interact with other golfers either on the course or the practice tee. The good news is, except in the extremely rare cases, that the "S"es are treatable and ultimately curable.

armuge,

Seriously, I would suggest that you take Chuck's advise and get the Short Game DVD. In the meantime, do a search on the forums for the word "shanks" and there are a number of post concerning the topic and how others have successfully overcome this dreaded disease.

Oh Damn! I just committed the unthinkable. Quick, is there a doctor in the house? Please? I can feel that I'm fading fast.......

Regards,

Magic

Magic, sorry mate. I hope I haven't spread it yet. The CD will be Christmas present for myself. I bet I will get my money back even before the new year from my playing partners.

I try not to go to the toilet whilst at the range as both ranges near to me have urinals made by 'Armitage Shanks'.  I just find it a real jinx to stare at that word before I go hit balls.

LOL.  There was a guy on the golf team with me at Ohio State University whose last name was Shanks.  Oops, sorry, I mean Sh*nks.  You can imagine the teasing he took, especially when he hit one.
