How to Play Golf Like a Pro - Momentum Toss ½ www.shawnclementgolf.com
Hey guys! Beautiful sunny day Richmond Hill, Ontario final of the season underway, I apologize for not getting a video out any sooner. Shawn Clement here of course, we’ve been extremely busy this season has started with a huge bang and we already have a waiting list of people for golf lessons so you know it’s a good position to be in obviously. So that’s the reason why I haven’t come up with a video for you and so I’m going to take advantage of this nice Sunday morning, quiet you know the family is still in bed and I can sneak out here and get you a little video on a topic that I find extremely very important.
Okay so you got to listen on this one. We’re talking about the waggle of your golf swing so basically we’ve learned throughout the videos that we have on YouTube shawnclementgolf.com go the YouTube Shawn page all 97 of them are in there, right now there’s 97 and in the DVD so we’ve learned that we don’t want to start from a static position and if you remember some of the Hogan’s teachings. Hogan talked about the waggle as a miniature version of his golf swing so we’re going to look at not only the take away but also basically the waggle or the take away of your regular golf swing should be the same as your back swing and a chip shot.
So if I look at the chip shot I brace forward, hands forward I’m going to take that left shoulder and toss it back so notice even the chip shot is a tossed shot, okay. We are tossing this lower case Y back and the arms and the club form that lower case Y toss ball. And then we’re letting that momentum fall through the shot and toward the target. Well it’s the same thing with the full swing. So you’ll see here in my take away toss, fall and as I’m falling notice how its falling around my left leg.
There’s a little mini brace in there, right so it’s toss, fall; toss fall and there it is. So I’m going to toss it back with a big turn of the body and then fall through the shot not only with my weight so you remember the down swing weight shift video toss, fall into the left side. My back is still to the target then the momentum fall right through toward the target and the left side can now glide out of the way so it’s that little double fall. Toss double fall. Okay, so make sure that when it’s falling forward toward the target it’s always falling around the inside of that forward foot, alright.
So let’s see if we can execute a shot here, I got a 6 iron we’re going to carve it around a little corner there toward the right pin. I got a little overhanging trees on the right hand side and we’re about 170, 175 so it’s a nice smooth little 6 iron. Toss; fall that felt good? What was that feel again? Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. I tossed it, toss, fall; very nice. Good strike right to the center of the green. Now it didn’t cut as much as I hoped it would but its right in the center of the green. I got about a 20 footer for par or pardon me for birdie.
So you notice as I am transitioning, right a proper toss just like I’m tossing a ball. I’ve got to let it go when I toss it. Now when I do let it go I let go of control of this ball. I don’t toss and then bring it back down. When you’re pushing a child on a swing you don’t push while grabbing the swing, right. You don’t grab the seat of the swing push, pull and push. The kid will fall off. Push, let it come back, push again. Same thing with the ball after you toss it, now you got to wait until it comes back to you. So same thing here with the golf swing after I’ve tossed it, I got to wait so I toss gravity and centrifugal force pull the arms and the club up the chest then they start down.
So as they start down I start to feel that momentum and I just let the body glide and react out of the way of that momentum because I want that momentum to go to the target, okay. So I toss it and let it fall, now what you’re going to see and feel is this wonderful pause, right? It’s not a manufactured pause, it’s a very smooth uninterrupted pause because gravity and momentum are doing it for you, all you’re doing is just basically holding on to the club and you have your awareness as to how momentum is developing the swing.
So if I wanted the 6 iron to really rock and let’s say I was 229 yards away I would toss it much wider with a little more gusto, right? And then as the momentum is falling I would gather al little bit more whip and move with it a little more aggressively. If you notice that last little 6 iron about 170 yards I’m just going with it about 60% okay. So you could basically go around the golf course a really great exercise. As you go around the golf course with a 6 iron, a wedge and a putter and basically you find out how much momentum you need for each shot, okay.
So whether you’re hitting a pitch or a chip shot or whether you’re hitting a 6 iron from 150 or 200 that doesn’t matter. You’re just going with the amount of momentum you think you need to get to your specific target and this is tremendous practice to get that awareness of momentum, okay. So why don’t we do that let’s do a couple of shots right now so you’ve just seen that nice smooth 6 iron off to the green here let’s do a little 6 iron from a 120.
