Shank Gate

A gate drill is a style of drill where you put objects on the ground, on in the way of the path of the club, to change your visual or spacial awareness of what the club is doing through impact. It can be very useful for helping you become aware of the path of the club.

When you are shanking the ball, the club head is moving further away from you so that you make contact with the ball on the extreme heel of the club. While I think it is useful long term to figure out WHY you are having this, you can always use the shank gate as a way to find a playing feel and get yourself functional for the round at hand.
