Hi Shawn,
Love your instruction as always because it remains consistent throughout your teaching.
Shawn, you have to talk about Rapsodo. That is the neatest piece of tech I have seen in a long while. Similar tech to that I know cost $5K-$10K. So my question is, what is the cost do you like it and is it worth it?

Thanks Shawn!

Shawn Clement

If you are using it outdoors, it is terrific! It becomes much less effective indoors however and looses several of it’s features. Terrific deal for the price!

Hi Shawn,

I’m a 6 and a physician and having a dramatic improvement following your task/biomechanic philosophy.

I have a consistent error of getting steep through transition and then saving through impact. Exhausting way to to play!

I have recently adopted tucking the right elbow on the takeaway and creating a feeling of a “closed kinetic movement” with my arms. It feels like I can fire with my body and capture centrifugal force because my arms are just levers unloading the energy. Plus, I am confident getting back to ball because it feels like a closed kinetic movement with clubhead geared to return to starting position.

Finally the question: is there a downside to having right elbow “too tucked” or elbows too close together? Otherwise, I’m just gonna keep exploring this motion since it makes swing effortless.


While watching one of your videos on YouTube as usual I am bombarded by advertisements that I usually delete immediately. This one was about a 1 plane swing like moe Norman, which Bryson DeChambeau seems to have adopted. I have been struggling with consistent contact from round to round so I watched a few of the videos on the single plane swing and proceeded to try it out at the range. My contact was great and it seems easier than adapting to different swing planes for different clubs. I will never stray from having a task, intermediate point, and flight plan and I truly believe that you are a golf genius. I proceeded to go to my local GOLFTEC and compare my conventional and 1 plane swings and my consistency and swing speeds were better using the single plane swing. I know that you have videos about Moe that I have watched, but, you have not advocated the single plane swing. Can I adopt a single plane swing while still employing your principles or am I straying into dangerous ground. If you do think that it is reasonable,especially since Bryson seems to be having success adopting it, it would be great having a video explaining your thoughts. Thank you for your response. Wisdom for Life!

Love the drone views. Really helps! Keep them up please.

Nice camera angles! What do think about this ” shallowing move” like Sercio Carcia or Cameron Champ. In the dowswing they shallow under the plane to get that water skier slingshot effect. Is it maybe same feel like club throwing?

Shawn Clement

Hi Jukka! This is a move that happened when they were very young; and yes, like you say, when you through the club, you engage the kinetic chain and this is what gives the “arm-club-unit” the extra load on the downswing that results in that nice snap in the direction of the target.


Drone shots triggered a question about setup. As you get behind the ball to create a draw, you adjust your grip by closing the club face. As you move the ball farther back in your stance to produce a draw with a lower trajectory, do you have to close the club face even more?

Shawn Clement

No, the closing of the face before I take the grip is in relation to my prediction that I give myself just before I deliver the shot! See “goldie locks series” and “predict contact”
very important!


The drone shots are amazing at the end. I have a question as someone who sometimes over swings, you talk about matches/no longer matches as you move your club. I’m assuming it is your swing plane/ability to go to the target that matches/no longer matches. Does not also your view of the ball and the access you sense change when you get off the plane?

Without a drone over my head to understand what is going on, I’m trying to figure out some guide to tell me if I’ve over reached on my back swing. Usually I’m getting a little rushed and don’t really sense well when to pause/transition to the make the downswing. In other words it is more that I tell myself to not rush to reduce the amount of back swing versus confirmation that I’ve turned far enough and going beyond will cause problems. This video shows me that using some kind of mile marker like the change of view would be a better approach. Maybe put a mark on the ball and when I can’t see it I’ve gone too far? any suggestions?

One of your best videos ever. Tied in a lot of previous concepts. Terrific stuff.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
