    A quick tip for this week:

    Remember, if you are out on the course and you start to shank, get your weight back onto the heels of your feet. When you finish your round get someone, preferably your local pro, to check your shoulder coil and address position. These will be the long-term solutions to the problems associated with the dreaded “s” word. Author Unknown.
