***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

TLDR: started shanking every type of shot with my iron and wedge all of sudden. now I have yips that every type of iron/wedge shot goes 45 degree right

about a month ago, my iron/wedge game was peaking out ever and my handicap was dropping significantly. shooting best round ever (84 @ par 72), decreasing driving distance was my only concern of game. 3 days later, I started shanking every iron/wedge shot ranging from 200 yard to 20 yard. Had to just pick up the ball several times because I cannot get the ball on the green no matter what.

Thought it would be one day thing. but since then, my game is totally collapsed shooting 100's. I dont know what to do but just quit the game. Tried to mend here and there at practice range but nothing seems working. looking for expert analysis on my swing video.

    Too much extension (cup) in left wrist through entire swing, but the big issue is a massive eyeline tilt to the right. Those are your first two priorities.

    Yea, 45*. Either that or aim at target and try to hit a shank, most likely won't be one

    Are you a scratch player? A: I sure am—every time I hit the ball I scratch my head and wonder where it went.

    Swing concept is flawed. You swing arms too around yourself. Pivot provides the around, arms provide the up. Little difference in swings on video - yes lead wrist too cupped - but In both cases you swing out too much and it is just a fraction on whether you shank or not. Could be just a bit of weight going to toes that moves path enough out to shank.

    I agree, was joking in my posts but this is true
