  1. So do you maintain a open club face w/ a 58 or 60 degree wedge.? Is there any instance that the wedge is square or closed?

  2. Shawn….I am not clear as to the last 2 ball positions..half buried , u moved it back …fully buried u moved it up.. Makes no sense to me.Not as well explained as most of your instructions.

  3. shawn , I’m absolutely a fan of yours , look forward to all the communications I get from you almost daily for the last 3+ years , breaks up my stressfull work day. especially during the winters up here in Upstate NY ( Saratoga). Most of your explanations are very clear cut and succinct, but this one some how did not make grammatical sense. I understand the ” bottom out” of the club concept, but your explanations of where for each a little circularly confusing. Are you saying #1 , ball sitting up = keep it in the middle of stance #2 ball 1/2 down= move the ball back in your stance #3 buried or 3/4 down = move the ball forward ? in your stance ?? thanks , you’ve got a “cult” growing with me and all my golf buddies. 🙂 keep it going!

  4. Ditto, that was the first confusing explanation I have seen you give. Even your club bottomed out and took different paths each time you demoed the stroke. Very confusing. And unlike you.

    • Guys–its pretty simple. Please watch the video again and focus on where the ball is to be played. 1. Ball sitting up. Take your practice strokes. Where the club brushes the ground that’s where you place the ball to hit the shot. Regardless of where you brush the round that where you place the ball to make contact.
      2. The next shot–the ball is sitting 1/2 way down. Take your practice strokes. Where the club brushes the ground–move the ball back one ball position as mentioned in the video. 3. Ball siting down. Take your practice strokes. Where the club brushes the ground–move the ball up one ball position.
