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.

There's another thread on here somewhere (2010 or 2011?) where I railed on the guy for being overrated; that said, it was really nice of him to help me out here. I'd been playing golf for less than a

I am a big fan of Shawn Clement. I bought the DVD series at the end of last year and also watch his videos on YouTube. I will acknowledge that some of his terminology for ball flight isn't up to speed

    • They have announced that there will be no cheering!
    • Yesterday. Found myself very close to the lip of a greenside bunker, on very firm sand. Couldn't aim at pin, but about 10' to the left of it.  Barely opened up the 58/10 degree wedge, smacked it into the "sand" about 1.5 ball widths behind ball. It popped out, hit the green and rolled out about 3', ending up directly downhill from pin. And for a change I made the putt.
    • Another league night that I just didn’t play well. Won a skin on 1 with a par, net birdie. Threw one away at 2 with a 3 putt. By hole 5 and 6 the wait between shots was so bad I lost interest. Course was jammed with people... and when pace gets that slow I lose interest. Didn’t keep my own score from that point. If my partner was in for a par I didn’t finish out or made runs at birdie and picked up etc. I did manage a birdie and skin at 8, with no handicap stroke. Partner and I won the week by 2 and now sit way ahead of the standings. We have 2x the points of 2nd place. I’m 3 skins ahead of the next closest player for skins. Not playing great lately tho but doing enough to get by.
    • I can't wait to hear about them.  I'm probably not getting new hybrids this year, but if I did, these would be near the top of my consideration list.  Please let us know how they are.
    • I read something recently in either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine and it listed I think the top 50 players and what they played for irons.  It was a blades/ combo set/ whatever set type of article.  I showed that they were very few players playing a full set of MB’s.  If I recall correctly, most were gaming some type of combo set.   Clubs like the TM p770 are just so good now, their benefits are more attractive to better players.
