I'm standing by what I said.

The best short game players get the ball closest to the hole. Your technique needs work.

I don't think my issue is in technique as I'm alway ending up on the green around where I want, but I NEVER get it inside a three foot circle. I'm lucky if I can get it inside a 10 foot circle!

My issue is with the roll outs. I'm fairly certain it's because I can't read the lie and situation correctly to be able to tell how far the ball is going to roll once it hits the green. Maybe this book has information on that?

Let's have some fun with math (not Matt! a2_wink.gif ) ......

Let's call your 17% scrambling stat 20% to make the math easy.....that means you get up and down one in five tries. If you're losing 10 shots per round, that means you had 12 attempts and therefore only hit a maximum of 6. GIR.

I'd opine that therein lies your opportunity! a3_biggrin.gif

Point is @MattM the best short game players aren't that much better at determining how the ball will react on the greens, their technique is just really solid. Good technique doesn't result in big discrepancies with the ball checking or running out. Not saying they're within tap in range every time but good technique produces consistent, predictable results.

I might ask a known question but is there going to be an ebook version?

Definitely not at first, and likely not for awhile.

 


 

BTW, aside from double-checking some things tomorrow, Dave and I are… done with the book. We might change a single chapter title, but we'll be submitting it to the printer tomorrow morning, knock on wood.

So, are you still looking at June for delivery, or should we expect July to be more realistic..?

Congratulations most be exciting. To bad about the digital format. I like paper but the convenience of my e-reader is winning it nowadays. Will it be available in Europe?

Awesome!!! I'll be checking the mail box daily!
