Looking for simple solutions to the most common golf swing problems? You've arrived at the right place.

From snap hooks OB and slices into the next county to a lack of power and squiffy ball striking, we've got you covered with simple bullet point fixes and easy to digest video content.

Let's start with one of the most frequent faults of all, the dreaded shank...

#1 - SHANKING

- In order to shank the golf ball, you have to take the club well on the inside and get caught on the inside.

- This means you are swinging very flat and you'll get caught and throw the club (for the right hander) off to the right, which will introduce the heel of the club into the ball and create the shank.

- To counter this, we want to swing the club more upright. Make sure your arms do not move too far away from your body as you attack the ball.

- Check out the simple drill above from former European Tour professional Carl Watts to see how it's done, simply using two range buckets to help you swing up and left (keeping the club closer to the body) and hit perfect golf shots out the middle of the club.
