I've got a really bad case of the shanks lately, and for the life of me I cannot seem to shake them off. Messes up my golf score big city.

Here's a typical scenario. I hit a beautiful shot from the tee which splits the fairway in half and flies way down towards the green. My second approach shot shanks right and disappears into the thick foliage. I lose the ball and have to take a one stroke penalty. As I address the ball for the next shot I'm nervous I will shank it yet again.

Once you get an acute case of the shakes, you approach every new shot with the inner fear that this is going to happen again. The more you think about it the higher the chances it will indeed happen again.

And again, and again, and again.

So in that regard it's mostly a psychological thing. Now I have to straighten out that mental kink and get my act back together.

Either that or give up golf altogether. I'd much rather keep playing golf though.
