  1. I only watch these videos on youtube and never left any comment, but after watching many of your videos now I feel a little ashamed of not giving any support to you, regarding the fact that I learned so much from you. I think your explanation is easy to understand and intuitive, compared to others that I watched. Also, there are many conflicts in certain areas with different instructors, but yours worked out the best for me. I especially like the “crazy detail” series and really helped me fix my problems. I just wanted to say thank you.

  2. You are the best instructor I have seen in decades. Oh, and BTW, I think your left knee could rotate left and move left four more inches and much sooner. I think that you are a tiny but bit stuck today. Just a tiny bit. Your first move should be to move your left knee toward the target if you want to bomb it. Look at Jack. His knee moved a FOOT before he hit the lag position. I really think if you could free up your left knee 300% and use it to key your downswing, created a cowboy bow legged squat you would see your flat spot widen another foot and the release become much more violent. I saw that you are working on a increasing your clubhead speed in another video. You mentioned Jack raising his left foot and then dropping it down . I don’t think the raising of the heel (or the tremendous knee rearward travel) is as important moving the knee as forward as possible without shifting the or bumping the hips. The knee and thigh must rotate as a result of the hip rotating in the the hip socket. I believe if you could increase the gap between your knees another four inches by starting you downswing with the “bumping” of the knee forward you would see immediate gains. It changes the hip rotation geometry and allows a much fuller opening of the hips through impact. Brad

    1. citymasher, modern instructors don’t completely understand the role of the feet and the knees in the swing. It is NOT the hips that are supposed to start the downswing. It is the left heel. Once the left heel gets in position, the left knee is rotated open, which creates the impetus for the hips. THAT is proper sequence. It is the reason that Clay’s swing is very clean looking but lacks the pure flow found in a championship swing.

  3. You are one of the best teachers. Other golf instructors don’t go into detail like u do. U have simplified golf for me and approved my game a lot. Thank you.

  4. As I’ve gone through the comments, I couldn’t agree more. You can explain things so simply that you’ve made it easy to understand. This is one of the best. I’ve always believed if you can’t explain something simply, you just don’t know it well enough. Thanks for offering your time and expertise here.

  5. You explain things slowly and in detail and also why. Showing different angles and everything. Really good instruction sir. An older video I watched a few days ago helped me with this hip turn. Finally was able to stop digging craters at the range. lol. My shots are a bit straighter too. Good clean fluid shots. Good hip movement seems to help the club shallow a bit. I’m a bit scared to introduce that squat though because squatting down into the left side was part of my problem(albeit improperly.) But I’ll give it a shot.

    1. Hi Coolness201
      Thank you for your comment and thank you for being a loyal viewer of our videos. Good luck on your game and keep up the good work!

    1. Hi Andy
      Thank you again for your comment. Please let us know if you have anymore questions about anything.

    1. Thanks for the instruction. Working hard on not being a hip spinner. I really like the piece on putting the weight on the inside of the left foot and not outside. I started doing that and feels more controlled. I just need to take to the range and then the course. I hope you met your 125MPH goal.

    2. Hi Joe, thanks for the kind words. Keep working hard. Let me know if you have any questions. Clay did meet his 125 mph swing speed goal. That is swinging pretty hard. Play well ~ Quentin | TSG Instructor

  6. Loved this video. Never heard of impact glide before.

    I’m a bigger guy who is very flexible 6ft2 274lbs 20yrs old. I’m losing weight(down 56lbs). I can get almost to John Daly range without a flying elbow. The problem is I can’t see the ball when I want to extend to my limit. Is there anything I can do, besides keep losing weight to help me maximize my shoulder turn while still seeing the ball?

    1. Hi RBL Rickster, thanks for the kind words. Congrats on the weight loss. Nice work! Make sure you are staying in your posture. If you start to stand up in your backswing then you’re going cut off your vision to the ball. I hope that helps. Play well ~ Quentin | TSG Instructor

    1. Hi Kevin, thanks for the kind words. I’ll be sure to pass it along to Clay. He isn’t doing in-person lessons at this time. He focuses all his time on creating content so he can help as many people as possible. We do have an instructor, Robin, who is giving in-person lessons in the Orlando area. Let me know if you are interested and I can get you more information. Play well ~ Quentin | TSG Instructor

    1. Hahaha, I didn’t before but now that you mention it. Thanks for the comment. Play well ~ Quentin | TSG Instructor

    1. Haha, nope, not a twin brother. Glad to hear you’re a viewer of both. Hope you’re playing great! Quentin | TSG Instructor

    2. Yeah he is equally good at explaining tennis. Compliments from a tennis coach. Thata goes to show how a strong understanding of body biomechanics and physics will do wonders to your sport.

    3. Hi, thanks for the comment and kind words. I’ll be sure to share this with Clay. I’m sure he’ll appreciate it. All the best ~ Quentin | TSG Instructor
