Shawn says that if  you practice certain tasks (like cutting grass with a grasswhip, throwing clubs, etc) you will feel the correct mechanics and get into the correct positions automatically (without one having to think about them). This differs a lot from other golf instruction where you are taught the correct mechanics/positions , etc  to then get the feel.

The WIG (Wisdom In Golf) forum members stress that you shouldn't try to copy him because everyone will have their own 'WIG'  swing.

He's probably exhausted all his swing instruction ideas on You Tube because current videos are really a re-hash of older ones but he's publishing a book on 'Fathers Day' .

I particularly like his 'Head Bobbing ' and 'Create Serious Speed'  videos and also the proper way to do the 'One Legged'  and 'Two Legged'  drills. I can't do the 'Hogan Power Move' very well as any sudden extra secondary spine tilt hurts my back. He's definitely using a bit of 'parametric acceleration'  in the WIG swing which is why he can hit the ball so far. Also like how he concurs somewhat with Tutelman website about how the golf swing is like a 'Trebuchet' where the hips act as a counterweight to the free swinging arms.

His best advice is about 'getting out of the way'  of the free swinging arms (assisting g-forces) and that we are automatically wired to do this if we let ourselves do it (letting go to gain control -scary) because we are gravity experts (self preservation skills we learned when we were cavemen).

He also has a particularly 'short pitching/long chipping' style which I find completely different to the norm instruction (you see on the internet) and compares the body actions to throwing horse-shoes to a target. His style of instruction is engaging and fun and imho , I think that most of his ideas on golf instruction just feels right.

    • Great work here!  Congrats!
    • Broke 90 for the first time today with an 89 ! Had been under 45 at Walden , Mellomar, and Hawthorne each of my last 9 hole rounds so was working my way to it. Bought an 11 wood after work Thursday and it has been a nice addition, getting more comfortable with the old $4 Wilson chipper from eBay as well and keeping away from the pitch shots that have been inconsistent. Been teeing up almost exclusively with the 9 wood recently, mixed in the 5 wood today some off the tee and deck. I was racing the sun as I teed off at 3:00PM solo with no one behind me, I think not having any time to overthink or anyone on my tail helped.
    • The point is choosing a more affordable school (state schools generally costing less than private schools).  It revolves around making a good personal financial decision. State governments can control private school tuition?  If they can, that’s news to me
    • Interesting. It sounds like the loan is getting repaid incrementally over time based on income, and is not forgiven. Is that correct? 
    • Do you have a system where the loan is paid back at a certain percentage of salary once it reaches a certain level? This is how HECS (Higher Education Contribution Scheme) works in Australia. HECS-HELP has two components - it is both a loan and a student discount. ... Loan repayments are then made through the Australian taxation system when your income reaches a certain threshold ($46,620 for the 2020-21 financial year). It is possible to make voluntary repayments at any time regardless of income.
