Yeah, my clean strikes are probably 50/50 regular trajectory vs looking like knockdown shots, which is clearly a pain when trying to hit elevated greens or stay below the hole. That all makes sense. Thanks.
Surely a ball off the toe could put the ball in a similar place as the classic shank, but what about the feel?
Not only does the ball go sideways, but on contact with the hosel you instantly feel like the contents of your stomach just went into your undershorts. Your "toe shank" surely doesn't do that.
Forgive me for not experimenting to find out.
I'm starting to develop a lot more confidence in the new motion with my irons, and I'm noticing my mishits are becoming a lot less severe! I'm still doing some leaning back through impact, but I think it looks a bit better than it did two weeks ago.
