How to aim flash (speedlight) at center of umbrella

Attaching the flash on the coldshoe of an umbrella bracket throws the light top of center of the umbrella. I have tried using a commercial clamp that clips the speedlight to the umbrella shaft, but this brings the flash too close to the umbrella, even with the wide angle diffuser, I don't think I am using "all" the umbrella (25"). I'm interested in what others are doing. Usually I have a RF-602 receiver attached to the flash, but sometimes I use ETTL.
