Show Notes

This podcast is actually a re-release of an episode that I  recorded with renowned golf coach Shawn Clement on his Golf's Perfect Imperfections WRX Radio podcast in July. In this episode, Shawn (Director of Golf at Wisdom in Golf) and I sit down to have a conversation about coaching, goal-setting, vision and purpose, not only in regards to the game of golf, but life in general. Although this episode is framed around the game of golf, much can be learned from this discussion that applies to sport, business and education. We are joined as well by Munashe Masawi, Head Kinesiologist at Wisdom in Golf and former collegiate football player. 

About Shawn Clement
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!
