I live near Tampa. I would like to know when you’re doing clinics down here again. Is that posted somewhere?

Shawn Clement

Hi Anthony! I wish! Our borders are still closed for Covid and there is a mandatory 14 day quarantine for travel returning to Canada at $1000.00 per night! 😱😱 and we have a 8:00 PM Curfew to boot as well…

Shawn, I think I am getting this but still do not see the whole picture of slashing with a sword compared to the golf club. the visuals mix it up for me because the sword is horizontally flat as see it but the golf club is more vertical and it seems to me as you come down you have to more your arms to align with the vertical face of the club. If you could cover this more with an actual flat sword and show how it is the same motion with the arms and elbows I think it would benefit me and perhaps others. This is a big stumbling block for me. There is another problem: When I set up like hogan with the inside of the elbows pointing out, it seems very awkward and out of place instead of the elbows pointing towards each other. what am I missing here?

In this video you say to feel the weight of the sword slashing through. In others you talk about feeling the weight of the arm club unit.
What should my focus be?
Feel the weight of the club head and swing that through the ball towards the target / intermediate point.
Feel the weight of the entire club and swing it in the direction of the target / intermediate aim point.
Feel the weight of the arm and club hanging from the shoulders and swing that.
I seem to be able at times to feel the 1st or 2nd option but not the 3rd.

Mr. Clement:
I was reviewing the diagonal stance video. Am I correct that if playing a draw, I drop the trail leg and foot back (closed stance), I do NOT have to pre-turn my body?

Actually, the video was under WRX Working the Ball with a Diagonal Stance with your student Chris.

Dear Shawn, when the right elbow is turned, so that the right armpit is pointing upwards, it will make the clupface quite open at address. Should I then take a stronger grip or is it fine to start with an open club face? and how open is fine?

morten@rawbite.dk

This video was an eye opener for me and really the most important missing part in my swing. Suddenly everything in my swing felt effortless, powerful and natural. Fantastic lessons Shawn, I am really grateful for this information.

Hey Shawn, when working on this, my blackout happens coming down feeling like my club face is wide open or I guess my brain thinks I’ll shank. Am I to just trust and focus on releasing to the target?

This video is brilliant and helped tie things together for me. Can’t wait to give it a go. Thanks Shawn!

Shawn— I have been struggling on the back 9 of an all-par 3 course. But, I love what you teach because when I execute, its wonderous. I don’t ask you alot of questions but I have Three key questions—

1. Does the tucked right elbow feel at address “stay there” and the torso transports the arm and club untit to the top? If so, I tend to lose the arms hanging from the shoulder socket feel which is so important.

2. Please direct me to a video where you really go into detail about WHEN to bend the right arm and hinge the wrists in the backswing. This is my most difficult part under pressure in a round! I need help when and how to do this things.

3. Coming down, from the ground up, does the tucked right arm get transported by the torso again so you get through the cut? If so, it does NOT feel wide. So, what is feel of the arm-club unit with the tucked right elbow….what keeps the structure? Do you just “leave it there at the top and start down, doing nothing wiith arms?” Or is there an independent feel of the arms-club where its Not being transported or slung by the torso.

On the down swing, my culprit is want to manipuate or control the club with my left arm, which produces bad results and destorys the second pendum from happening.

Thx, Paul

I have a question about the club face it seems like your clubface is more toe up coming down compared to a lot of golf swings were the face is more on the spine angle. And your handle works pass the ball and then squares of the last moment. I also noticed in the video that I sent you that my hands are lined up straight at impact with my front arm compared to yours and Cameron champ where the handle is much more forward at impact. What are your thoughts on that.

Shawn, my friend, I am back and getting ready for my winter work. I had some video of my swings and I have the exact same problem…flying right elbow, throws club across the line and open. I played some really good golf this past year, but was letting my right arm break down and using my arms and shoulders to generate power.

I am making the switch to single length irons and refocusing on the effortless whip to the target…this video reminded me of our session in Chicago and can’t wait to get on a simulator to re-remember this move. Great video. Russ

This video just might be the glue that holds my swing together. I have been implementing Shawn’s teachings regards the swing and I confess that my game actually regressed for a while. However what made me persevere was the occasional and then more consistent strike which was sweet and effortless with great distance, shape and trajectory.

I was aware that my position at the top did vary from time to time, hence a source of my inconsistency. Of course trying to work out where I should be only increased that inconsistency. Thinking of holding my trail elbow under my right pec and then turning back has introduced a stable and consistent position at the top for me and even though I have only tried this within the confines of my front room I am really looking forward to hitting the range tomorrow.

I have an important club competition this weekend and I am so looking forward to posting a good score and shutting a few playing partners up who have had a few sniggers at my expense whilst I’ve been going through the process of changing from hitting at the ball to sweeping through the ball and on to it’s target.

To anybody having second thoughts as to whether Shawn’s method of playing is worth sticking with, I’d say this; keep watching the videos and as you practice, little golden nuggets of advice and instruction will resonate with you and you’ll find that you are, all of a sudden improving and marvelling at how well you are sending the ball to your target.

Hello Shawn,
Awesome content. About fine tuning the arm motion. If the flight path is draw or fade, does the arm path and plane get flatter or steeper, respectively, or is it always the same? Or is the ball position and the degree of the turning in of the golf club take care of working these two flight paths?
Garth from Green Bay,
Go Pack Go!

Great tip… starting to have the “lights come on” Wondering if you could go into more detail into the “release the club high concept related to this arm motion review and insight. Seems like the 2 issues are tied together and hoping my ideas match you teaching…

Shawn I watched Cure for Hooks and Pushes, and you talk about the trail elbow clearing, Have you noticed that it is easier to clear the elbow since you dropped all the weight. Reason I ask is I have lost 30 plus pounds and trying to get to my best weight, and I am having an easier time clearing. I have always been told since starting this game 18+ years ago from every Pro or great Am player the thinner you are the easier it is to clear the body in the swing.

cgrumbling@tampabay.rr.com

I asked the question above, maybe it was missed.

cgrumbling@tampabay.rr.com

I thought you sounded like you had a cold or flu, in the Youtube Fix over the top video. Hope you are getting better. Can’t wait to see you in Florida, I left a Question on that fore mentioned video on Youtube that video maybe one of the best explanations ever on alignment! Really cleared up a big mystery for me on why I was not able to clear body out of the way, and blocking shots!

Hi Shawn
As a new Eagle member you have cured the problems I was having with half shots, pitches and even chips going sideways. Love the fine tuning video which I practiced yesterday. One problem I was having was bottoming out before the ball. Having been a Rotary Swing member I remember the advice on what they called posting up on the lead (left) leg. This involves weight shift to the left then pushing hard against the ground. This seems to bottom the arc out and help with shifting the left hip. I have watched a lot of the videos on your site, have I missed out on this move or should I be doing something else ?
Thanks
John
PS
Love the humour such as Skully the skeleton.
