    Thank you so much for your videos. Extremely helpful and educational. I ? them. I am a recuperating golfer. Left golf over a decade ago for health reasons, but recently was cleared by Doctors to resume play. I was so excited. Then I walked into a golf shop and I felt I had landed on a different planet. Please consider I purchased my last set of golf clubs in the late 1990s. Tommy 845s. Note: I’m leaving names out to protect the innocent. About 30 days ago I visited a golf store to purchase a driver. I tried a few. Settled on a Mizuno ST200 10.5°, lenght 45″ with a regular flex Diamana 50. Hit it pretty well with a club head speed in the low 90’s. As I am getting older I felt the shaft would work for me. Never did I consider how much velocity I stood to gain once I started regaining muscle memory. I’m up to high 90’s to low 100’s. Death alley is what I’m choosing to call it. My ball flight is now all over the place. Right, left, up, down. Spin from low 2k to 4k. Avg. distance 240-250. Ok, so I have outgrown my shaft in 30 days. I tried tipping it .5 inch. It helped some, but not enough. Any suggestions as to how I should proceed? Tip another .5 inch? Buy a stiffer shaft? Cut down my on swing and be happy with 240 of the tee? Suggestions…Anyone?

    I currently play Tour ADMJ6S. I have been thinking of going lighter as I get older like a 5S. Speaking with Bill McPherson he will sometimes suggest tipping to bring down flight and some spin. I am interested in the new Mitsubishi Raw AV Blue 5S and was thinking about tipping this. Would love to see a test in this new hot shaft that is now stock in new TSi Drivers.

    Love the video by Gavin and Matt. I didn’t think the difference would be significant tipping wise and I was right for the most part but the biggest more eye opening thing was spin. I play a Ventus black 7x tipped an inch but I would rather err on the side of it being a tad softer than too stiff. As a golfer, you are pretty much dead in the water if the ball doesn’t spin enough with driver whereas there are ways to bring spin down if the ball spins a tad more.

Clement: How to nail the first move in your downswing!

Published

on

This first move in the downswing is very much a product of the right focus on a specific task that will engage the body’s “self preserving system” to shift weight on time and clear the hips the right amount to find the direction we want to start the ball according to the flight plan we chose to begin with. To do this well, we need to understand how the weight shifts from the backswing into the downswing as this will prepare the transition to facilitate this engagement. We have such an amazing machine; all we need to do is give it the right simple task! Enjoy this video down memory lane as we have been doing this move since the Bobby Jones days!
