Welcome to WISDOM IN GOLF, where the secrets to enhancing your game are backed by science, neurology, medicine, and of course sports! We celebrate the genius of gravity and motion instead of harping on any perceived defect. WE HUMANS ARE NOT DEFECTIVE! - we are learning machines. And when you learn, there are no mistakes, just "is or is not", "doing or not doing" or "on or not on task". A focus on learning and awareness of our body's abilities keeps the focus on staying in the zone and not on getting distracted by the fears of doing things incorrectly.
Imagine a place where you feel relaxed, engaged, and absorbed, where the theme is abandonment of control instead of seeking more control, feeling rhythm come to you instead of manipulating rhythm, and painting with broad and fluid strokes instead of painting by numbers. We chose the word WISDOM because it embodies what we do and teach: that combining knowledge, experience, understanding, and common sense all lead to better performance. Led by Shawn Clement, with 30 years teaching experience and helping golfers up their game, WISDOM IN GOLF taps in directly to how your brain and body are wired and formed to open the door to a new way of approaching the game of golf. THIS IS TRULY HOW GOLF SHOULD HAVE BEEN TAUGHT IN THE FIRST PLACE!
For those of you who do not know yet who I am, please consult my bio and know that I am a lifer in Golf and was put on this planet to help people enjoy a game that is so profound on so many levels. Golf can be played so easily with the right focus and can be so incredibly frustrating and elusive when you are focused on the wrong task.
The most important tool that started me properly on this journey was the experience I had from age 17 (I am now 51) with the Canadian Ski Patrol and their relentless passion in making sure you knew what you were doing when treating a victim with a broken limb on the ski hill before transporting to hospital with vital information for the Emergency MD.
This information helped guide me through the maze of golf instruction that was based purely on opinions that were based on assumptions of how the human body works. To this day, we do not have any documents, seminars, manuals on basic anatomy in the field of golf instruction which is very disturbing considering we are on the front lines of your abilities to learn this game and play for life!
So, by now, you know what I have done, you know that I know what I am doing, you have a better Idea what I have gone through to get you this cutting edge, top of the heap way to learn motor skills pertaining to golf and, according to many of my thousands of testimonials, other sports such as tennis, baseball, hockey, ping pong, skiing, fishing, carpentry, demolition, grass whipping and scything just to name a few!
Hang on to your hats, this great ride just keeps on getting better and we are in this for the long haul, so get on the roller coaster and stay on it as we head down the rabbit hole to Golf Wonderland!
