I have watched his video and find them helpful also. He has a relaxed and casual style that I also like.

You just gave me a new thread ideal that I might post. What teaching video have you found helpful to your game.

Funny enough, I started taking golf seriously within the last year and Shawn Clement has been my only "instructor" thus far. I've listened and watched a few local pros and none of them make things as easy to understand as Mr. Clement. I would love to take some in-person lessons with him but will have to rely on his DVD and youtube videos for help.

I think the one video that has helped me the most? His "one leg, no weight shift" swing. I literally go to the driving range and hit my first 5-6 shots with it to get my balance right and my swing in a good tempo. I am now changing my swing a bit for more consistent shots and have also found his "feet together" video great as well. Really makes you understand the hip turn and how the core should work together.

Have recently watched some of his videos and he explains things in a way I have never heard or seen before. Of all the golf instructional videos I've seen, none compare to Shawn. Taking private lessons from him would be awsome.

I'd recommend him to anyone struggling, if they can't or don't afford taking private lessons, which I guess is why many post here.

Yea, Shawn's my boy, I love him. I emailed him a few months ago with a few specific questions about the golf swing and he emailed me back in less than day with a laundry list of ideas and drills for me to do at the range. Guy's a class act in my book.

From my vacations in Canada I noticed a ton of lefty golfers. I asked one of the guys I was playing with up there and he says it's from hockey. They grow up hitting those lefty slap shots. He said a lot of guys up there have a tough time deciding which side to hit from when they take the game up.

Shawn is a great resource. You could spend a week just sitting there watching all his youtube videos.

I really like Shawn's analysis of the golf swing and swing faults.

When I first saw Shawn's videos (without knowing anything about the golf swing) I thought he was a little too wordy on topics and was turned off by some of his indoor videos having poor sound quality. But after revisiting his videos I realize what an excellent understanding he has of golf-swing mechanics, and him elaborating on topics is vital to ensuring he gets his points across to a broad audience (which I'm grateful for).

I've been having problems with shanks lately and after watching Shawn's videos on 'Fix your shanks' and the Hogan Power drill I realized I have been thrusting my right hip forward on the downswing to match the left hip, instead of letting the hips turn back into the left side. After watching Shawn's pointers on the proper hip movement I went back to check some recent swing videos where I am shanking and saw the thrusting problem with my hips, which was tough to see before since I was wearing dark trousers.

Over the last month I've been obsessing over faults in my takeaway and top of the backswing as shank contributors, and never thought once the hips could also be a factor in a shanking problem. The last two instructors I went to this past month didn't notice the problem in my hips, and were more concerned about me overswinging and my takeaway.

I had a lesson with Shawn a couple of days back and was really impressed by his passion for golf. At the end of his lessons, he points his students to his specific youtube videos to reinforce the point, which i found so amazing. I can sit back on concentrate on things that I am really weak at.

For anyone in Toronto, if you want to improve go to Shawn

He is my favorite online instructor. I've watched his youtube videos and they are all great. Has anyone purchased his DVDs? Are they worth the money?

Shawn Clement has got to be one of the best golf instructors out there. For whatever reason his methods really sink in with me. For instance, I've had problems with focusing on hitting the ball rather than swinging through the ball. I watched his video tip about this and it seemed to make so much sense that I couldn't wait to get to the range to try it. Sure enough, my swing was much more fluid and easy. It also helped with my weight shift and lag. I don't know why I haven't ordered his DVD yet (other than I'm cheap!)

+1 I completely agree, Shawn Clement is awesome! Very informative, without giving you too much at one time. It seems like he has videos on almost everything, and he makes his lessons very understandable and easy to remember.

Yep great videos, all I can say what a great guy to put all the time and effort to give golfers great info thats easy to understand. I wish I could meet him and thank him for his contribution to the sport of golf. If I was to ever go to a golfing school or clinic he would be my number one choice- Steve

I love Shawn's videos. I watch them quite a bit, he's definitely helped me alot in the last year since I started to take my game seriously. If only I had more time to practice.

The amount of great free instruction he puts on youtube is just incredible. I have learned quite a bit from his videos. He seems like such a friendly guy too.

    • 1. So people who fail out, have to pay loans back, but if you graduate then your loan should be forgiven? I don’t see why banks would ever give loans out then. With that logic, I would think college would become less accessible not more accessible.    2. If you don’t think cost should be an issue, then are you willing to pay for others to go? Things cost money. That’s life, that’s reality. Someone will have to pay for it…are you willing to pay for others to go?  I have two kids I’d love for you to pay for.  I’m not willing to pay for others’ college education as it’s a privilege, not a right. I’ve already paid for my own.  Again, people should be responsible for themselves and stop acting as if they are entitled to everything regardless of their ability to pay for things.   And if you and others who want their education paid for want to live in China under their form of government, go ahead. I’m not interested in that. 
    • I think it might be said that if you can succeed in college then you are entitled to loan forgiveness.  Do you want China and other countries far exceeding us in education?  The bottom line is that loans shouldn't be a factor.  We need to find a way for kids who have a drive to succeed in school get to go to school.  Advanced education, in certain areas, should be covered.  Doctors and lawyers and such...
    • It sounds like you’re arguing that some students would have to drop out is a reason to forgive the loan…as if college college is an entitled right…that everyone is entitled to college.  It’s not; it’s like a car: you might need it for a job or career, but you’re not entitled to a car. You can buy one if you can afford it.  With that line of logic, where do you draw the line?  If I can’t afford my house and I would otherwise need to be homeless, then is the bank supposed to forgive my loan?  I’m not entitled to anything I can’t afford. It’s called living within my means and being fiscally responsible.
    • A lot of students, if they didn't take out the loan, would have to drop out of college.  In the STEM areas we need those students in school.  So I'm not terrifically opposed to forgiving loans.  Also, it's a small boost to the economy, allowing those graduates to spend their discretionary income and feed the the consumer economy. I paid off all my student loans... took some time.  Now, I need to call a credit card company or two to see if they'll forgive my loans...
