Lowest Score Wins - a first-of-its kind golf book for anyone who wants to lower their score

678 posts in this topic

June 10, 2014 - Lowest Score Wins is now available for purchase at http://lowestscorewins.com/! Get your copy, hot off the presses, and shoot lower scores GUARANTEED!

As some of you may know, @iacas (Erik) and I have been doing research over the past couple years for a golf book called "Lowest Score Wins". Our background work is 95% complete and the writing has begun :-P .

Indiegogo (we have raised almost $2000 so far in the form of purchased books) and I'm posting this here now as we know every golfer can benefit greatly from this book!

Right now, you can support Lowest Score Wins and get yourself a first edition book (as you know there is only one first edition) at almost $10 less than it will sell for after the campaign.

If you like the idea, even a little ;-) , please SHARE it with as many of your buddies, family and social network friends as you can.


Here is a section of the text from Indiegogo to give you an idea what the book is about:

What is "Lowest Score Wins"?

"Lowest Score Wins" (or "LSW") is a first-of-its kind book that will lower your score the very next time you play.

Lots of books promise to make you better… What makes LSW different?

Golf books have traditionally fallen into one of several categories: some purport to help you with the mental game, some will try to assist you with your golf swing, or your short game. These books, though helpful, often fail to help you lower your score… not today, not tomorrow, not next year.

By combining our rich statistical analysis, simple techniques, and gameplan building blocks, LSW will help you build your own Lowest Score Gameplan to shave strokes off your score quickly. We will show you specifically what to do and what pitfalls to avoid every time you play golf. We will show you techniques to quickly improve your game without overhauling your swing. We'll examine statistics - of the game's best, average, and poorest players - and show you how to take advantage of the skills you already possess.

What are people saying?

"I've worked with a lot of golf instructors in my time on Tour and as President of Medicus Golf, and Dave and Erik have created the simplest, best, most well-rounded approach to shooting lower scores that I've ever seen." -- Bob Koch, President and Founder of Medicus Golf

"Dave and Erik's approach to scoring is something I'd only dreamed about. I always knew there had to be an easier way… turns out there was!" -- Tim Macre, Head Athletic Trainer, NHL Buffalo Sabres

"I've spent my career helping people lower their scores as well as my own! The concepts in Lowest Score Wins provided me a roadmap to continue to compete against the younger guys while helping my students shoot their best scores EVER." -- Graham Gunn, former Canadian PGA Professional of the Year, Canadian Club Professional Player of the Year, and Senior European Tour Player

One final note. This campaign closes in only 29 days so time is limited if you want to grab a first edition copy of the book. Thanks in advance!

You can contribute, pick up your copy/copies, and find out more information here:

Here's a video we put together explaining the project.

We're very excited to be doing this. As the video says, it's a great and unique blend of technique, stats, strategy, and so on. If you play golf regularly at all, this book will help you lower your scores immediately by changing the way you play the game.

Pleased to support this. Just a heads-up: if you use auto-fill in your browser, it might not fill in country and/or state (at least, mine didn't), and my first attempt said it was an invalid request. I figured it out the second time through :)

I gladly supported this cause. As being a follower of TST for a few years now, and have taken lessons from Erik at his facility in Erie, PA. I have great respect for Dave and Erik in their knowledge of the game of golf. As two people who have such immense knowledge of the golf swing, and how methodical their methods were in developing the 5 keys, this book will have the same respect for detail and analysis.

I personally did two contributions, the $65 dollar for the 4 paperback books, and the $75 dollar for 1 hardcover + 1 paperback. The reasoning is because that would give me 5 copies to pass around to my family and friends who golf. I would keep the hard copy for myself.

As someone who has taken lessons from Erik. I highly recommend the $395 contribution. The lesson itself is worth that. You'll gain more knowledge about the swing of golf and how to improve your golf game in one afternoon than you will probably have in your whole golfing career.

Please support this cause, it is worth it for yourself, and for the golf community who will benefit from this book being published.

On my iPhone so I'll just ditto Matt. I believe in these guys, and think this is going to be a great book. I've also purchased myself a hardcover as well as several paperbacks to gift out to friends. I encourage anybody who wants to improve and/or help a couple of guys publish their first book to at least pitch in the $15. I have no doubt it'll be worth it!

Just want to highlight that Dave and Erik will do a two day school at your hometown for $4995. Get 8 guys together and it's only $625 each for TWO DAYS of instruction - full swing, short game, strategy, gameplanning, the works. If the school is anywhere in the Southwest (looking at you SoCal guys) then I'll definitely be there so you'll get even more personal one-on-one instruction.

I'll definitely be supporting this. The information that these guys have is amazing. What I've learned about the swing so far from them has helped me out immensely and now to get a good look at how to develop a game plan will be great. Can't wait until the book is actually out.

I've really been looking forward to this book since I heard the whispers about its possible conception. I have found the "how would you play this hole?" threads to be fascinating and really believe that ANY player at ANY level will see significant change in their ability to score better simply by avoiding the bad choices that railroad you into big numbers. Will it make you a better swinger of the club? No, but it will get you into situations where you have the best opportunities to walk away with a good score.

You often hear good players talking about playing the odds or going with the high percentage plays, this book will teach what that really means and how to play that way.

I dont know if I will learn as much as some people-I have my own theories tested over time-But youre right that $15 or $40 is not a lot in golf and you can easily make that back beating your buddies. Im in for a few copies as soon as I get home.

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      He said something like "even your typical PGA Tour player these days would have been a superstar in my day." His point was that there are a TON more talented players who are far better than the guys he played against. I don't think it's quite as exaggerated as you might, but I also really don't care to get into it too deeply. The strength of field is multiple times stronger today than in 1968. There weren't that many overseas players. Or players in the U.S., for that matter. That alone accounts for strength of field differences. Very few foreign players came over to play on the PGA Tour. The money wasn't that good, unless you were one of the top players. It wasn't like it is today, and travel was still expensive. There's a reason players back then had to carpool, share hotel rooms, etc. Just look at the basic numbers. Once you get past the top one, two, maybe three players… it's folly to suggest it was likely that the top 15 players out of 1.5 million players is at all on the same level as the top 15 players from 100 million golfers. It's possible but highly, highly, highly unlikely. Furthermore, golf has attracted more and better athletes recently, too, which wasn't anywhere near as true in the 1960s. I get it. People like to romanticize the past. But the games and athletes move on and get better. That's irrelevant. He could only beat who he played against, and the truth is, he didn't beat weaker competition more often than Tiger Woods except in majors, he didn't win more money titles, more scoring titles, more individual awards, have higher margins of victory, etc. than Tiger Woods, all against weaker (Nicklaus's) competition. Jack might have chosen football if he grew up today. He might have been a career Web.com Tour player. Or he might have won 23 majors because he was that good and the modern advancements would have helped him that much. We don't know. It's pointless to speculate, IMO. I think the depth of field still matters and mattered in the majors. Even in the Opens. Even in events including only the top 50 players, there's still a big gap in depth from the 60s to the 00s.

      Come on guys, I'm missing the 1st quarter of the Super Bowl. That being said, I think Fowler just sent his chances to a watery grave.

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      I'd be curious to see just what Jack said. I think "10 or 15" having a chance to win for typical PGA Tour events in any era is an exaggeration of the relative weakness of the fields. Even before there was a depth of talent in the U.S. and the 'golf craze' here took off, the money drew top level golfers from overseas who were following the better money available here in tournaments and pro positions. I accept there's been a general strengthening of fields as the expansion in prize money and the total population of competitive golfers (see chart below) have forced top golfers to have more preparation and polish, but I don't think there's really ever been a lack of generally elite level competition on the PGA tour or at the Majors since about the 20's or 30's. I think if the effect of a tiny number of truly top level competitors taking on a bunch of club pro relative 'dubs' was as strong as you seem to think that most of the top multiple Major winners would be golfers from the early days of the tour. But to me it looks pretty balanced across eras. I'll see if I can work up some actual numbers. By the 1920s there were likely about 1.5 million golfers (in the U.S. alone), which is a pretty healthy base from which to draw potential 'top talent'. Total participation in golf from when Jack started to when Tiger started roughly tripled. As far as rating 'achievement' you play in the era you play with the existing disadvantages and advantages. IMO, if Jack had grown up as a contemporary of Tiger with the same advantages of technology and swing instruction / coaching and the same disadvantages of a greater number of potential competitors that they would both have risen to elite levels and would have regularly been battling for Amateur and Major Championships. I don't think the potential ranges of human abilities / talent really change much in a few generations. Would I consider Tiger more competitively vetted, yes. Do I think that means his talent level and achievements were automatically greater than Jack's? No. I could see valuing Tiger's win total more than Jack's (and certainly Snead's with some 'iffy' events in the total) because of the relative talent base depth, but not sure that transfers as readily to the performance in Majors, particularly the Opens. I think it would have been amazing and exciting to be able to see them compete at their peaks rather than a boring foregone conclusion.

      I really like Hideki's takeaway... Nice smooth swing.
