You mentioned “last weeks video on getting to your finish”. I did a search but could not find it. Could you help?


My early extension comes from not getting a squat in at the start of the downswing. Is it OK to think about a swing sequence like Toss-Fall-Fall which seems to help or is this too much process thinking that should be avoided. Am I better off finding a task that will lead me to perform that sequence automatically?


thanks…will give that a try

I really like planeing the wood task. This has gotten rid of my hooks and allowed me hits fades finally. I try to take a practice swing to get this feel. I really noticed with the driver how it really just skips off the turf. I hit some great drives and some my longest in a long time with this task in my mind. I have a piece of wood like yours and will just continue skipping the club on it. Great video!

Do you feel the peeling with your left hand or your right hand?

Also, sometime I take my backswing and the task is firmly in place, and all the milestones are checked. But when I hinge my wrists the club is very upright….not on plane. Is this because of my grip or some other reason. I fell as if I can hinge my wrists in several different ways which puts the club in a different plane on each one. Cheers!

Again, a fantastic video Shan!
Since I have started with golf I have been fighting with my early extension and overactive right arm and hand (maybe also influenced by time playing basketball intensively using the arm/hand all the time to manipulate the ball, especially the right hand or shooting). Your holistic approach and task/target oriented method of teaching helped me a lot and is in my opinion the only way to be able to get rid of this frustrating flaw.
Many thanks and greetings from Austria!

Great video Shawn, you make it look so easy! I really enjoy on how you present all your material.

Shawn, I may have a suggestion for those who, like me, can’t cheat their brain into seeing the ball as a dandelion (and see the ball for what it is: the object that I want to sling to that target). I’ve found that riveting my eyes on the bottom aft of the ball helps me stay in posture and focus on the task at hand: the feel of the club head releasing and pulling my shoulders out there towards my target. What do you think? I know that you always advise not to look at the ball.

Cut the grass, peel the carrot, plane the wood, chop the tree, hammer the door frame, peel the back bacon! Now the trick is focusing on one! Appreciate the video, Shawn. Always good stuff.

Sam, what helped me in felling that release “out there” was to cut dandelion stem with one hand (my glove hand). Your hand will feel miles away in front the stem before your wrist releases to make the cut.


Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
