    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.

Who has the most natural swing in pro golf?



In my opinion, Bubba Watson has the most natural swing. He has never taken a lesson in his life; all he did was make big circles for his swing technique. Once that was in, he simply had fun making the ball curve. And guess what? For some, that is the best way to go!! See why in this video.
