I bought another hardcover.  Great gift idea for my buddy for his July birthday. Come on people!  $72 left to reach the goal.

@iacas cash is tight this time of year but I'll add a paper back to my original pledge to help hit the target if you can ship it with my hardcover to save the $10 postage fee.

 

Let me know here or through a PM.

 

Almost there!!!

Yeah, we can combine shipping, but guys, don't worry about getting another book unless you want to. Seriously. I'm pretty sure we'll get the last $72 or whatever in the next 30+ hours. That's literally just a few books.

 

The only thing I'll add is that we aren't going to print that many extras. Ideally we'll have a second edition in six months to a year or something, but first edition books will be limited to what's paid for and perhaps 100 extras (some of which we'll keep or give to students). There likely won't be any books to buy afterwards, and they will likely cost $24.95 rather than $15.

 

Edit: See? Between the time I'd loaded this page and typed up that answer, @evan01 put us over the top! :-D  Thank you, Evan, and thank you to ALL of those who contributed, or even just shared it with your friends.

You can PayPal the money to me and I'll add you to the list.

 

PM me for the email address (it's using our analyzrgolf.com domain because Dave and I are partners in that as well).

 

This applies to anyone else, too, who wants to get something between now and May, for TST members only. Everyone else will have to wait and will pay a higher price.

I definitely want to thank you for letting me in on this.  After seeing what you guys did for your training videos I'm really very excited!  I guarantee that there will be things in there that I would probably find counter intuitive to what I've been doing, and will probably give me an aha moment.  Very excited!  One thing I would ask is that when you sign mine you put a smiley face too! Lol!

 

You know what you guys are doing really reminds me of moneyball revolution in baseball.  You guys use statistics as well as slow motion video to actually break down what links connect successful players.  I.E. this move is a move that every successful golfer has made ect.!!!  That is awesome!  Not only that but it's much easier for people to learn what you are talking about just because you quit using stupid sayings that people have to actually decipher!  That's one of the hardest things about this game that I've had to deal with while learning.

 

The video stuff also reminds me of what this one guy (Chris O'Leary) has been doing in baseball the last five years.  He actually looked correlations between Greg Maddux, and Nolan Ryan (guys who never blew out their elbows or shoulders, although at 46 Nolan's finally gave out)  and why they didn't have arm troubles.  One of the things he found was that every injured (Tommy John surgey) pitcher did exactly the same thing.  He called it the inverted L.  Nolan Ryan and Greg Maddux did not make that move with their arms.  Anyway, the inverted L or inverted W had been taught by the same pitching couch (Tom House) for decades.  This move single handedly ruined the arms of countless kids as well as major league players.  It took a couple of years for Chris O'Leary's work to catch on because the old baseball guys thought it spit on "traditional baseball."  I wish it had been around when I was pitching....then my shoulder would still be intact and it wouldn't pop when I took a golf swing either.

 

Just to circle back to what I was saying......while the misinformation that you guys are trying to fix is not as drastic as hurting kid's arms....you guys are doing the same stuff.  That is great!  It almost seems common sense too, but for some reason golf as well as baseball is very slow to use logic and common sense.

 

Anyway.....I guess I'm saying keep up the good work.......

Are you going to have another campaign for "Lowest Score Wins" I didn't see it until too late (Jan 24th).   Or will I have to wait until the book is out?

Add yourself to the Facebook group if you'd like to discuss more things there. I don't know that we'll use it a bunch, but we will use it some.
