The drone shots are awesome! Great Idea!

Shawn Clement

Thanks Tex! We love it too! Very insightful!

Hi Shawn, great video! Is there another one where you go in deeper how you start the backswing? I see in all videos that you use your right knee to kick things off and would be great to learn your thoughts/thinking how to start the knee

Shawn Clement

See “perpetual motion drill series” and “pre-motor cortex series”
both are fantastic!

How good – i couldn’t work out which session this was! I was waiting for Mu to send it to the tree as well!!

Another great vid, Shawn and Co. i have a favor to ask, please do a sound level check when you dub in music and compare it to the general level of the rest of the vid. i watch these at all hours and to have to jump(literally) when the level pops up to 2 to 3 times from where it was a moment before and anyone asleep near me goes for my throat LOL. Thanks for your ceaseless efforts to help us find the center of this silly game! I’m having a banner year and in particular, this fall. All because of what I’ve been able to incorporate from your teachings, and i’m not close to being done yet. This is starting to be fun!!

Shawn Clement

Will keep an eye on that moving forward; it looks and sounds good on this end; I will dim the music down a notch or 2; so glad you are able to evolve nicely with the content; much appreciate the feedback!

Hi Shawn,

Around the 14-15 min mark you talk about rotation and rotational momentum with your back/butt completely facing the target. I know I’ve been told in the past by other teachers not to “over rotate” on the way back and as a result I think I sometimes sway backwards instead (which probably contributes to me getting stuck and hit fat shots).

Thoughts on over rotating your body? Thanks!

The drone shots are really excellent Shawn, the PMD is so visual and your trigger to start off the swing. Thank you!!!

Shawn Clement

Thank you Jimmy! This will now be a main stay in all our premium videos; just way too good a view!! 😀👍

The drone shots are really cool – a perspective that is unique and very helpful to see what is going on. Watching your setup from above is super easy to see. The best part IMO was watching the grass interaction with the perpetual motion swings – very cool stuff guys. Thank you!

Shawn Clement

Very proud to bring you that And thank you for the great feedback! 😀👍

Super.video Shawn. Love the drone view. The only issue with the drone view is that it loses the up/down motion. In all my shots I try to initiate with a small bump down using the legs. The hands press forward automatically. This ets up the kinetic chain and frees up the rotation. Zero manipulation. I’ve even been working on a similar micro move, comparatively, for putts since the momentum and throw are small. Way fewer pulls and pushes.
Manipulation has always been a big problem as well as ‘ ball is target’. Unless these movements occur my default is to pick up and manipulate.

So my issue is what is that trigger to start my swing,
look at Matt Wolff and you can see what his trigger is 🙂
even in you swing Shawn you have a sight movement forward,
I have a problem that when I have tried that slight movement forward I touch my ball and it moves. So I’ve tried at address to have my club slightly back from the ball I usually hit ground first

Ah! very good timing that video. Couple of weeks ago, I went to see the french golf whisperer (Ed Montaz), and boy, it was worth 6 month of lessons with my pro back home. But back on the course I have actually been struggling with starting my swing, I have that fraction of second where I think “I’m all setup, I have my intermediate point, the picture of shot, what do I do now?”. It seems that I just need to find a way of already be in motion. Will give that a try.

Great video. Especially the drone views. It really demonstrated the COMPLETE release of the club and how your head position stays behind the ball – but is allowed to move. My problem ( one of many ) is that I have trouble COMPLETELY releasing the club. Whether it be from my injuries, bad habits, or laziness I tend have the club stop just as it gets to my lead shoulder and it obviously reduces my distance. Fantastic job – keep up the heat work

I try so hard to be super still before I move to the backswing. I’m going to try some of these ideas to see if I can loosen up and get more flow. I can’t believe how amazing Mu’s movement patterns have become, he giving such a great Demo. Of course, Sav is a great demo model too but since she’s your daughter I expect no less. Nice outfit on MU, he and Sav are my favorite power couple now.

Hi Shawn, This was an interesting video. It seems there were a few different pieces munged together. I don’t understand how you can initiate the coil of the kinetic chain without a stable point (attachment to the ground) so I suspect that there are a number of ways that people discuss initiating the swing but it really all starts with the planting of the rear heel. This is the same in all sports I suspect…throwing a ball requires the foot plant to start. The question I have is around order of execution. If I need to plant to initiate the coil of the kinetic chain and my ankle and hip are the only sources of rotation then it would seem that the heel plants and the hip begins to turn. That would provide the initial momentum to start the drawing back of the club without it being either a conscious movement or something I try to muscle through. Thoughts? It seems pretty clear that is how you swing so consistently.
