    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?

      SteveK,
      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.

Nothing comes close to the whoosh sound you hear after you breeze through the ball on your way to the target and experience that squish against the club face and that perfect cut through the turf for that perfect bacon strip divot!

Taking the Full Swing KIT launch monitor to the range

Published

on

Full Swing’s KIT launch monitor was built with input from Tiger Woods. Tiger wanted a launch monitor that tracked his golf ball from the second it left the club until it hit the ground and Full Swing was up to the challenge.

GolfWRX’s Andrew Tursky and Brian Knudson take the latest Full Swing KIT out on the range to test it out. The duo takes the KIT through four different shots to test its accuracy and usability.

Check out the video for the results.

Clement: Easily find your perfect backswing plane with this drill

Published

on

When you get on one of these, magic will happen! You can’t come too far inside or outside in the backswing, and you can’t have arms too deep or shallow at the top of the backswing nor can you be too laid off or across the line either! SEAMLESS!!
