I used to use a neutral interlocking grip and here is what I have done:  I take a basic "baseball" grip with my left thumb going down the right side of the shaft and my right thumb going down the left side of the shaft.  I rest my left thumb inside the pocket formed by my right palm.  Looking down on it it looks maybe a little stronger, but not much.  I don't know exactly what this has done for me, but it seems that my right wrist hinges a little less than it did with...
It appears to have been my grip!  Now, how the hell is that possible???!!?!?!
Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that this doesn't jinx me, but believe it or not one thing that appears to be helping tremendously is a change in my grip.  I am going to wait and see if it continues to help before I post what I did!  
Thanks!  I will give it a try!  
I have a dozen Birdie Balls coming today, I have never hit one, but I bought 18 of the Almost Golf Balls.  In my opinion if you want every ball to feel well struck and not give a true indication of what a real ball would do, then the Almost Golf Ball is for you.  I can't hardly hit a bad one, everything feels good and 99% of the time the ball flies straight.  Believe me, that doesn't happen when I hit real golf balls.  I feel like they are just a step above the old...
Yes, I definitely think it is a "coming over the top" issue.  Nothing feels any different and another odd thing is I don't do it nearly as bad with my woods and never with the driver.  Thanks for the tips, everyone keep them coming, I am dying here!  
Not trying to hit a draw or a slice, I am just trying to hit it straight.  This just came totally out of the blue and I CANNOT understand what I am doing wrong.  I can place something just outside the ball and stop shanking, but as soon as I remove it they return.  It is unbelievable.  
Where the h*ll do the shanks come from and why???  Suddenly I have developed a bad case of the shanks.  If I go out to hit some balls the first few are fine and then suddenly the shanks start and just get worse, and worse, and worse.  I have never had this problem in the 30+ years I have played golf.  I am a 10-12 handicap and I am becoming very frustrated and discouraged.  HELP!!!!
