Every golfer has at some point suffered from a case of the shanks. I know that I do at least twice a season. Judging from number of off-set wedge related patents I would say that golfers spend a lot of time thinking about how it must be a problem with the clubs; surely not the swing! I previously posted an overview of a lot of clubs directed at curing the shanks (click HERE to read).
Recently a patent application published directed to another seemingly shank-resistant club. Check out these figures from US Pub. No. 20080026867 titled “Golf Club.”
More proof that shanks have been driving golfers to drink for years.
