How to Chip and Putt by Shawn Clementby Shawn Clement
The complete and true fundamentals of golf; from the inside out!
How a human body on planet Earth swings an arm-club unit towards a target while being aware that the ball and ground are in play on the way. Anatomy, Neurology, Physics, Psychology; in a language you can understand!
I can play from both sides to a very high level. Best score right handed is 65 and best left handed is 67 and I have a scratch handicap from both sides.I am now 44 years old and have been in golf now for 32 years and have been teaching full time now for 22 of those years or half my life. I eat, drink, sleep, dream golf on a daily basis and stay current with all methods of teaching and playing.
It is very hard to toot your own horn but there are certain things you need to know so that you will allow all this precious information to seep into you without the thinking does this guy know what he is doing? And the answer to this is an overwhelming yes!I was medallist in the Canadian PGA qualifier in 1999 and in 2000 started appearing in Golf Tips Magazine as a Playing Editor because they thought I could not only play but express my thoughts and teachings about the swing very well.
Next I was invited to the Golf Channels Academy Live and in July of 2001, appeared on Golf Academy Live with Jerry Foltz and Mike Ritz to talk about what made Moe Norman and Ben Hogan so special;Now you have seen my You Tube videos and can plainly see that I am a people person and love getting that rush that comes from helping others achieve their goals in this game, and seeing how cruel and lonely the tour life can be, it did not take me long to find my way and return to teaching. When I got home after a full season on the Canadian Tour, I decided I needed to grow some roots for my growing family and for myself.
After 3 years as the head teacher in Intrawests Mt-Tremblant resort, I went to Taboo, Mike Weirs Home Course, where I continued for another 3 years to sharpen my teaching skills as the Director of the Taboo Golf Academy. When they closed the resort for major renovations, this is when I found my new home closer to the city at the Richmond Hill Golf Club where I have been for the last 5 seasons as the Director of their Learning Center.
