Our most recent Golf Lesson Series video featured Nick Clearwater showing us how to play the “low stinger” shot that Tiger Woods made so famous. It’s a cool and useful shot that he, and many other of the world’s best players, execute with proficiency to get the ball in play from the tee when they need it most.

As easy as the pros make it look, though, many “normal” golfers struggle with their ball striking because they often misunderstand the fundamentals of the game. Because, as GolfTEC’s SwingTRU Motion Study has factually proven, the core fundamentals these golfers employ are often different in reality than what has been commonly understood and taught for years.

It’s a big pill to swallow, we know. Which is why one of our masterminds behind the study itself, GolfTEC’s Senior Director of Teaching Quality, Nick Clearwater, is back on the range with Jon Levy to discuss a key element of SwingTRU’s findings: how the shoulders bend in the finish position.

So, take a look at their video below, and be sure to watch for the key checkpoints Clearwater provides to ensure you’ll have the ideal shoulder bend in your finish position.
