Shawn, 1st swing vs 2nd swing observation: In the 1st swing it looks like you are placing the club in the backswing but in the 2nd swing it looks like you are tossing the the club to the top in the backswing as happens in the perpetual motion drill. I love this drill. Anticipating having to do the 2nd swing, I guess the central nervous system makes the 1st swing better. Make sense?

Shawn Clement

Exactly! I have built this mental response into all my swings now and my first swings have much more integrity and poise. I am getting ready to deliver 2 releases into the direction I want to start the ball and the posture integrity is significantly better and getting better with every rep! 😀👍💪👌

Sean, Just watched this video. As an MIT Grad School trained engineer, and Orthopedic Surgeon, I’m not sure that encouraging your students to “snap” the club in the direction of the target is good advice. As you know, that hands are actually slowing down at the point of contact without any conscious effort of the golfer to do so. The club “snaps” by itself as the club is released. Any attempt to force a snap, in my humble opinion, will ruin the kinetic chain sequence!
Your thoughts?

Can’t hear Savannah when she’s talking off camera.

Hi Shawn, I use the task of cutting grass but I don’t feel like I get that nice snap also I have a tendency to focus on the impact zone because my focus is on cutting the grass where the ball is. Can you give me some pointers for the cutting grass task to get more through to the target while still feel like I’m cutting grass and also get a better release?

This video nailed it. It’s funny when the brain focuses on one part of the swing other parts of the swing revert back to old habits. Precisely focused “REPS” on the correct feel is what I am lacking. This explains the lead arm across the chest and the loss of lag in the downswing. As I watch your swings I see much higher hands that remain in front of the chest. It is a powerful position and I will definitely own it.
Thank yinz

I really like that you are not method teacher 👍👍 Like you said, many release patterns can be effective. When i try that wider release, my effort level goes up. How do you feel it? I also try that paintprush drill and you can practice skipping without mat 👍🙂 I noticed that in your proshop there is no more impact snap training aid? In this video you still talk lot off “snapping” to target?

Jukka Kymalainen

Stiff fine? 🤔 or maybe still fine? They at Impact snap show it different way and i agree that can
bee confusing. That ball on string and snap polishing video gives free flow and good speed ⚡👍😁😀

I really like how you adapted the the paint brush idea to the softball throw I was telling you about in Phoenix. I teach girls who have never thrown a softball by using a paint brush with water and to throw the water in the direction of the target that I put up on a wall. The overhand holding off of the water/storing it in the brush and snap out in front toward the target is the same release feel you have throwing a softball. 

In my mind that golf paintbrush feeling is as close as I can get to your carrot peel analogy. It lacks the plane effect of the carrot peel but the release is the same I think. Well either way, I do like how you attached the brush to the bottom of a club. That was brilliant.

Shawn Clement

Yeah man! There must have been a subliminal effect from our conversation in Phoenix; I never forget good analogies although it can slip my mind where they came from after a while! 😝 I have been hashing and re-hashing that drill for the last while and between the “swing caddy” training aid and the wisdom grass whip, the paint brush is really a great task that pretty much everyone has felt and had success with. Kudos to you and lucky for your girls who all know how to throw because of it! 💪👌👍😀

Can log into site and open videos. but when I try to open the latest video it tells me I am not a member. ???????????/

Shawn Clement

Hi Oliver! Are you opening from the email received or on the site itself?

I felt very centered and in balance through this drill.

Shawn Clement

Success!! 👍😀👌💪

Testimonial time! I just finished the video and went to the backyard for some dry practice swings. I ended up doing about a dozen dry “throws” in a row. During each “rep” i could feel the improved power and stability. I ended with realizing that my left heel (RH golfer) needs to come up in the backswing and drive into the ground to engage that KC. Wow, what a moment! Also, it feels great on those tight low back and hip muscles.

Shawn Clement

Music to my ears! Great post Jake! 😀👍👌💪

I like the paint brush analogy. Probably do the same thing with a small/light mop. Anchoring the swing (Trail foot down) also helps get the snap which I can do only sometime. I read that a young Sam Snead did something similar by spearing apples with a long stick and flinging them at his buddies. Very god lesson.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
