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.

    • Day 120.  Played 18 with some friends today.  Hit 6 GIR, shot an 88.  That 88 includes four sevens (holes 4, 5, 9, and 10), one of which included a tee shot O.B..  My short game was barely outside the 20 handicap range for strokes lost, which is encouraging because I had two stubs in there (which each cost more or less a full shot each) and my putting was inside the 20 handicap range, which I'm super happy about.  Strokes lost approach was 1.73, which is amazing.

    • Day 543 - June 23, 2021 Two things today: Played 9 holes: https://www.gamegolf.com/player/iacas/round/3065509. Worked downtown on my swing: https://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/43987-my-swing-iacas/?do=findComment&comment=1542138.
    • So two things are my focus for the next three weeks: Keeping left wrist extension (not flexion) during the backswing. Left wrist cupped. I go arched during late backswing and that f***s up the right wrist and the right elbow. Causes a steepening move, and shuts the face, but I still tend to swing out slightly. So I get straight over-draws or if I don't force it inside, some big pulls. Left arm not anywhere near as deep. This starts early — from A1.5. Three swings here from VERY early in today's practice: Swing 1 — bad wrist. Swing 2 — almost the same. Swing 3 — Long, but maintained the left wrist cupping longer. Too deep, though.
