Ernest Jones had the best analogy at the time and it still holds true today: the pen knife and the handkerchief…which we translated to ball on a string. You take any object and tie it to a string and twirl it, you will experience a nice G-force pulling on the object that is tied and you will feel how your arm reacts to that pull to keep the object going. This is the feel you want to have at the end of that driver head, and the center point is the spot between your clavicles called the sternal notch. So use the ball on the string to clip the tip of the tee on the way up and into the direction you want to start the flight of the ball like I show you here and enjoy smoking that driver like you knew you could!

    Setting the Tilt at 3:42
    is the key, IMO

    Ensures inside to out clubhead path to impact, with sternum ahead of the ball
    not behind the ball

    This is golf…period…I am actually glad that he caught the first two shots off the toe and then showed that there is nothing wrong with his swing…only his prediction of how the force of his swing would impact the ball along the way. He then moved a hair closer to the ball and struck the third shot pure. That is the essence of golf. Once you are sure of how to reasonably and reliably predict where you need to be in relation to the ball to strike it purely, then you can learn to aim it and now you are playing golf! Great video as always Shawn!

    Super-Awesome video as usual. I just wish this video (and technology) was available when I was going through my dark times (single digit to upper teens because of shanks). I felt like I had lost my swing (Bagger Vance); really just lost my mind and my focus (ball instead of target). This video highlights so many important aspects of your exceptional wisdom and instruction that I have bookmarked it to multiple browsers and even saved it to my desktop.

    Thank you for being such an amazing communicator and golf instructor.
