    Shawn prefers to stay way up on the mountain rather than coming down to the hackers, duffers and assorted dregs asking him questions which he likely can’t answer.

    Can you elaborate on ball position with woods and driver. You kind of briefly mentioned it at the end in last 30 seconds but its not super clear.

    Are you just assuming the cg of the driver or wood is “XX” inches or cm from the face and put the CG in the centre of your stance?

      Good question about driver ball position. Also the other 3 questions below are good, particularly the first question on open and close foot stance. I hope we get some answers from Shawn.

        Looks like Shawn has dummied up and refuses to respond to valid questions. Reflects poorly on him.

          If Clements refuses to respond to questions kick him off GolfWRX.

    WOW!!!!! That was packed with a lot of great practical information. Thanks.
    Three questions:
    1. Do you open your stance for a fade and close for a draw in addition to ball positioning?
    2. When did you change your thinking from the old 9-ball flight laws to the Jorgensen D-plane ball dynamics with Trackman?
    3. Does the clubhead design affect ball flight control? Musclebacks better than GI and SGI clubs?

      What about offset or onset clubs? Round sole, flat, or with grinds? Beveled leading edge?
      I’d go simply with what Lee Trevino said: put it back and hit down on it. As simple as that.

An extremely rare (and ridiculous) interview with MLB superstar Mike Trout… about golf



Mike Trout is one of the best baseball players and hitters in Major League Baseball today. The 26-year-old, a 6-time MLB All-Star who currently plays for the Los Angeles Angels, is also on a tremendous streak of spectacular hitting at the moment. Over his last eight games, Trout is batting .696 with 11 walks, four HRs, and nine RBIs, making just seven outs in his last 36 plate appearances.

What people may not know is that Trout is also an avid golfer.

Recently, before the Angels vs. Royals game on June 4th — where Trout went 3-4 with 2 RBIs, of course — I caught up with Trout to talk some golf. Our instructions from Angels management were simple: we were allowed to interview Trout during his walk from the clubhouse until he got into the dugout. That made for one of the most ridiculous interviews of all-time, and certainly a test for our camera crew who had to navigate the Angels clubhouse walking backwards. But hey, a Mike Trout interview is rare… and a Mike Trout interview about golf is unheard of. Enjoy the video (transcription below)!

Andrew Tursky: When did you start playing golf and why?

Mike Trout: Playing golf? Probably in high school. I just enjoyed it. It’s obviously hard. I like to compete and I enjoy playing it.

AT: What’s one thing you would change about the game of golf?

MT: Change about the game of golf? I don’t know if I would change anything, I like it.

AT: How does golf get more young people involved, how do you make a little bit cooler?

MT: A little bit cooler? I’m not sure. Golf’s a tough sport to get kids into because it’s really very challenging. But I wish I would have started at a younger age for sure, knowing how fun the game is.

AT: Where do you get more nervous, the first tee or the batter’s box?

MT: Oh first tee, for sure. You know baseball, I prepare myself everyday. At golf, I just golf on the off day. I don’t know how they do it, in the pros. It’s incredible.

AT: Alright thank you, play well. 

MT: Appreciate it.
