Are you permitted under the rules of golf to put tape on your club when actually playing a round?

Shawn Clement

You bet! As long as you do not modify during the round! All approved by the USGA!
Per USGA Interpretation 4.a(6) – Features above the top line of the head:
. For woods and irons, features which otherwise meet the requirements for “plain in shape” must not extend above the top line of the head by more than 0.1 inch (2.54 mm).
• Permanent or semi-permanent lines or other markings which have been painted, inscribed or otherwise incorporated (see Section 1a) for alignment purposes are permitted.
Pinstriping is allowed per below.

Thanks for all you and your team do for this game!

Ray Casey

Using pinstriping tape to put alignment lines on your driver would not be an issue. We have deemed the pinstriping tape to be semi-permanent and can be used for the purpose. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Shawn excellent video. I just wanted know something. Where do you position the tape on the top of the driver. It appears to form a “V”. Is there any significance to where the point is positioned and can you do this with your fairway woods and hybrids

Shawn Clement

A perpendicular line to the face of the club about an inch to each side of the top logo which represents the centre of the face.


What am I missing? Would not one piece of tap at center of clubface give you blur and point to center face contact? I ask since I am going to use paint.

Awesome! I keep telling the guys at Callaway to use the 2 ball on top of the club head to see a blur the width of a ball! Go for it!!

Hi Shawn, feeling a bit overwhelmed by how many great videos you have here. My problem is that I rarely take out my driver mainly due to the fact that I either duck hook or push right. At the moment I’m using irons of the tees which I hit fairly well.
please could you advise me which videos on here would be good for me to practice with so I can gain some confidence with a driver


Shawn Clement

Hey Brett! Just answered your youtube post with this: Hey Brett! “Arc-Blur Unstoppable momentum” combined with the last 2 videos (5 and 6) of the “2020 Off season Training series”-Keep your STRAIN LEVEL in check by delivering with no more than 3/10 for effort and 7/10 on velocity; like a solid attacking second serve. The 2 swing drill that you will see in the last 2 videos is key for strong and balanced posture through the shot which will prevent the club and arms from dropping behind you on the downswing causing the pushed drives and hooked drives (same family of issue)


Sean putting the tape on the driver was really key for me. I have a black ping driver and it is really hard find the club head path. Tape on the head makes it much easier to see the swing path arc and the bottom of the swing. Seeing the path is key. Bombs away hit it high and letting it fly. One of your best videos yet.

Shawn Clement

Yeah man! Those guys at Taylor made did not know what they had with those white headed woods!

Arne Rieken

Hi Shawn. Why do you apply two tapes on your Driver? How do you adapt your distance to the ball while throwing the club (Football) ? Many greetings from Germany and thx for your videos.

Shawn Clement

It is so you can identify the BLUR OF CLUB (see the video) as well as see the “arc-blur unstoppable momentum” series


Looking for a bit direction, or video. Playing this morning…. the WIG approach has immensely improved my game. I have went from the 100s. To the 90s, to the 80s! Enjoying the game more than ever. Even my drives have improved. However, I noticed that drives go astray when I tend to rush to get to the ball. In my mind. I am thinking more distance…. but the results are not good. I have been doing the predict videos and the kinetic chain. Any specific videos you may suggest. Just trying to be more deliberate with my practice time. Thanks.

Flip Gentry

Shawn, maybe I was asleep in class and missed the definition, but what is meant by your term of “Flow State”?


Dear Shawn, I’m watching your video’s with great interest and learned a lot the past year. Thanks for that, I really appreciate the stuff you present. You made it very clear that the task a golfer has to execute is a very important part of the swing. A part of that task is seeing the target in your mind. There lays my problem, I’m not able to “see” the target in my mind which makes executing the task of sending the ball to a target very difficult. Is this a known problem or am I an exception to the rule? I help possible?

Mark Cohn

I’ve recognized of late how important staying centered is to the whole deal….and how much I was Not staying centered. Something that has really helped me is to do the old Hogan/Nicklaus (and countless others’) trick of bending in the right knee a bit and really feeling the pressure on the inside of my right foot during the backswing. The other thing that’s helped is to stare down the ball with my left eye only (by turning my head a bit to the right) and really feel everything turn underneath until my left shoulder is under my chin. Doing this sets everything up so that I can then just focus on letting go and swinging fully out to the target.

Jeremy Moody

Point taken (again). When I can give it up to gravity and not try to guide and get stuck in the middle of the stance the kinetic chain is there. My feel is that of casting a backhand frisbee. Effortless swing. Nice kinetic flow and always through an intermediate point.


Shawn. Great video as always, but getting 111 mph with 30% effort is not obtainable for most golfers. I am 75 years old and am trying to get back the lost 60 yards of the past. I’m trying to go from a 75 mph swing to 85 mph. Do you think swinging at 30% is the right path? Having said that, the forward tees are nice. Ron


Shawn, really loving these “Flow” video lessons. Really need these driver tips and demonstrations. I pause these during your swings to see more. Amazing to see how far your head stays back, as well as how your lead leg posts at a “backward slant”. Thanks for this driver series!


Shawn, I’m a little foggy on .club face vs path of travel as it relates to fade vs draw. Is it causing the fade or draw strictly based on the point in the arc, ie. forward or back of center and club path, or are you closing the face at a different rate for fade vs draw? I notice you don’t mention anything about closing the face any different for a fade than a draw in the initial grip


Merry Christmas Doctor Voodoo. Looking forward to the next in this series. Would like to see slomo videos that loop a few times.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
