Hello Shawn,
great stuff again, one question if i may:
On the „Chipping Video“ you clearly state to use an open club face.
When it comes to pitching, shall we let the face open as well, or close it as if we do a full shot?
many thanks and best regards,

Shawn Clement

Hi Thomas! Just like the full swing! If playing a fade for a high soft pitch, you keep it square to slightly open depending on the shot and for a low “one hop and stop”, you close it like a nice low punch draw.

Thomas Kihr

really appreciated! thank you very much!


Please explain what you did differently that made the draw pitch grabby versus soft. I can’t seem to pull off the low spinning, quick-stopping short approach shot. How do you increase velocity to achieve the extra spin without hitting shot too far?


Shawn, your method and the way you present your points of view are great. Thoroughly enjoy.
My question is about the swing: do I need to lower my left shoulder in the back swing and then lowering the right shoulder in the down swing??. The reason for this question is that if I don’t do the lowering of the shoulder in the back swing it feels uncomfortable and cannot go as wide nor as high as I want to.
Thank you so much!!


Shawn, Do you feel at any point in the downswing that you are pulling the arms and club through the ball? Avoiding that temptation is extremely difficult outside of a practice swing when striking a ball on the course. Do you feel that you imply any active effort whatsoever other than supporting the momentum created by the effect of gravity of your mass in motion down and through the ball?


Thanks for your answer. the only reason I asked the question was because it felt higher and wider and felt less strain on my back and arms and shoulder when I lowered the left shoulder, but I will follow your advise and I am sure I will get much better. Again THANK YOU!!


so, are you saying that the move for pitching is slightly different from the cutting grass move. seems to be much more wrist movement than the cutting the grass move?

will be my intro practice tonight before full club shots at RHGC with Donna. So calming and freeing .
like the RBC sponsorship also. Cheers, J.

How much do you feel gravity in the transition to downswing. Is it just a split second of feeling the club naturally drop and then let energy and momentum gather as you work through the ball?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
