1. A golf club which comprises (a) a shaft with a shaft axis, (b) a head which has a heel end and a club face for contacting a golf ball when the club is swung in use, and (c) a shank which has first and second sections, in which the first shank section defines a shank axis with the head being attached at its heel end to the first shank section so that it can be rotated around the shank axis, and in which the second shank section extends between the shaft and the first shank section, the configuration of the first and second shank sections being such that the shaft axis and the shank axis intersect at about the bottom of the heel end of the club head, so that rotating the club head around the shank axis causes the angle between the club face and the shaft to change, the shank being configured so that the first shank axis is substantially vertical when the club is held in its intended position for striking a ball.
