  1. The Wolffman certainly has an individual Swing, like a hybrid of Jim Furyk and Bubba Watson and Man does he Smash the Ball!

  2. I have jokingly tried imitating his swing. I say joking because it's not exactly right, but just the power I get from the fall of the club once it's tipped from that slanted upright position at the top, is incredible. You hit the ball square with that while putting the left down and boom!

  3. Can you comment on the difference between his method of forced leading of the hips and big shallowing of the club vs your automatic clearing of the hips.

  4. Wouldn't be surprised if he was trying to imitate bobby Jones old video tutorials. He would twist hips towards the target to break the tension and get the swing started/flowing(+80years ago) and of course the thunder heel(left) of the bygone era. On a sidenote shawn whats your view of the left leg at impact, i love the feeling of the left leg/knee snapping straight near the same time at impact, hard to explain the feeling i think just a fraction before club impacting ball the leg snapping straight always adds a lot more power too my shots.

  5. In GG's coaching videos, he seems to be highly focused on body positions and a ton of manual manipulation of the student's club and body. And that exaggerated bowlegged hip clearing ahead of the upper body seems a possibility for only the lucky few. All that seems to contradict major concepts in your teaching. What am I missing here?

  6. Et bien ce n est pas ma référence en termes d esthetique de swing. Ni Furyk ni GG. Neanmoins il a au moins une victoire. Peut-on durer avec un tel swing ?

  7. I'm in the WOLFFPACK!!! I can't wait to watch him and Hovland go at each other in the Ryder Cup.

  8. Hey Shawn another great vid! Care to suggest a video on a drill teaching how to swing through the ball & not at the ball?

  9. Subscribed! Shawn, your swing is so smooth; was wondering if you prefer stiff shafts in your irons?

  10. Quick question: you talk about how you don't need to think about the hips and that they are automatic when performing a task, but I can't shake my tendency to slide hips to the target in the downswing aggressively. I play good golf but it's not a power move. Any suggestions on how I can remedy the slide through a different way of thinking or a task?

  11. Hello my friend. I just had a question. Now I'm currently on a weight loss journey, and by January I'm probably looking at about 100 pounds lighter (assuming I stick to what I'm doing, but I am determined) so my question is should I wait until after I've lost the weight to really get serious about my golf game, because currently I don't play much, maybe once every 6 months no range time, but I shoot in the mid 80s when I do play. There was a time a few years back where I actually played at least 3 times a month hitting up the range 5-6 times a month (nothing compared to the pros I know) and I was shooting in the low 70s. Anyway I've never had a lesson besides all the youtube videos, and want to take my game to the next level, and start really focusing on my golf game, and start playing way more often, so I wasn't sure if losing a significant amount of weight would change the golf swing meaning what ever I work on right now may not work once the weight is off. Sorry if this is a stupid question.

  12. Fantastic job on this video. Very glad I checked it out. You're doing all great videos lately. 👍

  13. Shawn it seems like many of the faults that traditional instructors were trying to fix are really big power creators in the swing. I have noticed the flying elbow helps both shallow the shaft in transition but also helps create a powerful underhand throwing motion. Have you seen Mike Austin's swing philosophy? His method has really helped me with generating speed and less stress on the lower back. Growing up I was taught to restrict the hips and explode (the x-factor) and all it did was destroy my back and end my career before it started. Now I feel like I tilt toward the target, let the elbow fly, feel some sway and do not keep my head down.
