Not really.

I do, however, spend a big part of my practice trying to chip. Would you guys say that's more wasted practice or good practice?

You never try to visualize yourself playing a course on the driving range?  First hole driver 9 iron etc.?  I used to just hit hundreds of balls a day, but I found that my biggest issue was when I move from club to club on the course.  The setups are different for each club (e.g. 4iron is different from pitching wedge).

 

I always found that helpful versus just hitting a bunch of balls with the same club...

Kind of OT for the thread, but "just hitting a bunch of balls" is not what we recommend either, no.

I have yes but I don't switch clubs every shot. I can't give any details away but I will say there are lots of great practice suggestions/drills/games in the book.

Got home last night and a box was waiting outside the house.

 

Got excited for a second that it was my copy of the book...and then was woefully disappointed when it was a birthday gift for my girlfriend from her sister.  

 

She asked me if what I thought of the gift and I guess I was still disappointed because she asked me if I didn't like it.  Haha.

Taking the train back home fr Glennwood Springs this evening and I'm hoping to find a package waiting for me either today or tomorrow. Looking forward to it a lot. Is it being shipped through the US Postal Service or through UPS/FedEx? Just wondering if I have to go to the post office to pick it up or if it'll be at my door when it comes.

All were sent yesterday or today via USPS Media Mail. International orders were all shipped today via International First Class mail (or whatever - about $12-$18 each).

 

Media mail takes a bit longer, but a package we sent Saturday arrived in Buffalo on Monday, so…

 

They do have tracking #s. If you PM me your name I can get them to you… it might take me a few hours though.

Not me.  I can wait.  I realize Erik offered, but I don't really want to bother him.

Eh, if it was a bother for him, I don't think he would have offered.

Pretty much.

 

It takes me 30 seconds. I log in to stamps.com, check the shipping history for your last name, and copy and paste the tracking #.

 

It's USPS Media Mail, so it's barely updated once every day or two, but it's something, and it provides an estimated arrival date.

I apologize. When I read my post it definitely sounded snarky.

All the way across the country, mine says "expected delivery date June 24, 2014."

It's a good thing we're not playing a match against each other on Tuesday morning. ;)
