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.

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

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.

    • I think it’s even worse than what you describe.   I live in an area where people are cheering that there will be no mask mandates and they like to rub it in peoples faces.   They are literally trying to own people who are taking it seriously.   I mean, people are just disgusting.  I can’t even muster anything in me to feel remotely sorry for people like that, nor have anything to do with them.   I’m sure there were lots of people in generations past who took the easy way out and did the wrong things in prior pandemics and war times, but that’s not terribly easy to find in history books.  Books will be written about how people not only killed themselves, but in their twisted belief that they are “protecting their freedoms” they are stripping them away from others.      I have 2 kids under the age of twelve.   With Delta allowed to become dominant because “people want to live their best life” (at others expense), they now are scared to go back to school (and the idiot system won’t do remote learning this year), won’t be able to travel and see their grandparents* , and can do less than 3 months ago.   Nice job folks.   * their grandparents are total a-holes though, so I won’t shed a tear.
    • Here I am, yesterday, doing the day 11 drill.  This represents my status after about ten minutes or so of doing the drill.  I really like it, and I can see how it will help me get better, and I plan to do this one more regularly.  However, I'm not sure I'm doing it right (similar with the snapping sticks drill, where I was stopping wrong).  There's even a really bad putt in this video that I was tempted to edit out, but decided to leave in (since my bad shots are instructive to how I'm doing it wrong, I think). As for other drills, I'm not sure how many I should be posting videos.  Part of me feels like I'm semi-spamming this thread (and I really should have done these 15-16 months ago). And in looking at my last few videos, including two I sent to Evolvr a week ago, it looks like my tripod gets tilted, I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong there.
    • Saw this interesting drill for encouraging hip rotation by deliberately opening the face in the downswing. Anyone tried this? I’d worried it will develop a bad habit of opening the face at the top of the swing.  
    • "With the delta variant taking off around the U.S., the federal government Tuesday updated its masking guidelines for fully vaccinated people. The new advice is to mask up indoors if you live in a place with "substantial" or "high" coronavirus transmission. (The guidance for people who are unvaccinated remains the same: Always mask up indoors.)" Check your county's transmission rates:   Do You Need To Wear A Mask Indoors Where You Live? Check This Map The CDC wants vaccinated people to wear masks indoors if the coronavirus is spreading widely where they live. Find out the level of virus transmission in your county. And, this was interesting: "A week after the crowds descended upon Provincetown, Massachusetts, to celebrate the Fourth of July -- the holiday President Joe Biden hoped would mark the nation's liberation from COVID-19 -- the manager of the Cape Cod beach town said he was aware of "a handful of positive COVID cases among folks" who spent time there. "We are in touch with the Health Department and Outer Cape Health Services and are closely monitoring the data," Alex Morse told reporters. The announcement wasn't unusual with roughly half of the country still unvaccinated and flare-ups of the virus popping up in various states. But within weeks, health officials seemed to be on to something much bigger. The outbreak quickly grew to the hundreds and most of them appeared to be vaccinated. As of Thursday, 882 people were tied to the Provincetown outbreak. Among those living in Massachusetts, 74% of them were fully immunized, yet officials said the vast majority were also reporting symptoms. Seven people were reported hospitalized. The initial findings of the investigation led by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seemed to have huge implications. Before Provincetown, health officials had been operating under the assumption that it was extraordinarily rare for a vaccinated person to become infected with the virus. And if they did, they probably wouldn't end up passing it on to others, such as children too young to qualify for the vaccine or people who were medically vulnerable. The idea that vaccines halt transmission of the virus was largely behind the CDC's decision in May suggesting vaccinated people could safely go without their masks indoors and in crowds, even if others were unvaccinated. But that assumption had been based on studies of earlier versions of the virus. Delta was known for its "hyper-transmissibility," or as one former White House adviser put it "COVID on steroids." "What has changed is the virus," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and Biden's chief medical adviser. When a vaccinated person gets infected with delta -- called a "breakthrough infection" -- "the level of virus in their nasopharynx is about 1,000 times higher than with the alpha variant," Fauci said in an interview Wednesday with MSNBC. All indications now are that the Provincetown outbreak investigation is among the pieces of new evidence behind the CDC's decision to ask Americans to once again put on their masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated."   CDC mask decision followed stunning findings from Cape Cod beach outbreak - ABC News The CDC's mask decision followed stunning findings from a Cape Cod beach outbreak. The viral load of vaccinated beachgoers changed what we know about the delta variant.  
    • It would be interesting to know if they'd perform any differently with the belt device. As I wear a different wrist "health" tracking device the apple watch wouldn't work for me. Also, have you noticed any wear on the face of the sensors from rubbing on the bottom of your bag?
