Hey Shawn!

Great video! My challenge has been defaulting to the ball and not through the ball.
Old habits are hard to break. Can you please share with me the pros and cons of having eyes focused on the sliver of grass between club face and the ball and having your eyes on the front of the ball? The reason I’m asking this question because in your videos I haven’t heard you talk about having your eyes on the front of the ball. Thank you for your feedback in advance.

Shawn Clement

As a general rule, most of my students who look at the ball get too distracted by it and never see the task; the hammer drill is a fine task where the eyes are on the ball but the task is to squeeze it through the doorframe into the flight plan so it can work as long as you see the task everytime you set up! I enjoy them all because I have practiced all the tasks and have success with them and use each one according to certain shots on course. See “task to target” videos for some great examples! So bottom line, choose a task you feel resonates with you, get really good at it and see where the eyes need to be to be able to stay with the task despite the ball; with the spinning task, my eyes are on the outside of the ball as I am spinning the tees in the direction of the IP with momentum; so much fun!!

Thanks Shawn! I appreciate your feedback. Do you know when you will be back in the United States? I live in St.Louis, MO. I was at your two day training in Scottsdale in 2019.

It feels like the 2 swing drill is handy for loosening one’s swing. Would you use the arc blur as the first swing and then immediately followed by the actual shot on the tee box?

Shawn Clement

Yes, you could! 👍😀

Paul Belcher

Why do you play the ball so far back in your stance. Don’t most pros on tour play it more forward? Also doesn’t that make the trajectory a lot lower? I’ve struggled with where to out the ball in my stance.

Shawn Clement

No, not at all! There are many more factors involved and it all depends on whether you fade or draw and the height you want to send it on; you will see many shots from Tiger with the ball well back in his stance; big time! See “the goldie locks series” and ball position is a topic for a full video in that series; you will love it!

Shawn, you talk about tasks. My trouble begins when I default to the ball as you know, rushing backswing and swaying to hit the ball. Task to hit inside 1/4 out to the right etc….low success percentage but. NOW….My practice and success comes with feeling the ACU( major initiator)->, low effort out of the way backswing and then with my head stable behind the ball and eyes on the front of the ball I can get the ground with my lead leg naturally and allow a kinetic chain , confirmed by practice blur, to throw the club with ball-grass-dirt intent through ( always) an intermediate point. I need my eyes to confirm the task making the sequence more predictable. Not too many swing thoughts. Just a visual confirmation and balanced swing out there. Of all the scores of lessons I’ve seen and had through you I find these are essential to my improvement and enjoyment of the game. Thanks, JM.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
