1) To excel competitively in an area or sport of some sort. Especially in convincing fashion. Also, going so far as to to rub it in the face of opposition that they are being completely out played.

2) To completely embarass an opponent in competition. As if you are using your skill to punish, and not being humble at all.

The phrase "put on a clinic" means that a person or team is performing exceptionally well, usually in terms of executing a game plan or set of skills.

Typically used in sports to indicate a player or team is performing exceptionally well to a point where the other team appears amateurish; it's as if the other team is comprised of students attending a sports instructional clinic (i.e. instructor-led athletic skills workshop).
