I can't wait for my book to get here. I wish the USPS would update their tracking. It's killing me waiting for it to make its way from Erie to Denver.
I obviously haven't read the book yet, but I've been thinking about my shot patterns for a couple years, and I have wanted to put together an app to visualize them and allow me to plan course strategy. Well you guys and Mark Broadie have gotten me fired up to work on it again.
Here's a mocked up version of a hole I play often, along with the corresponding shot pattern of the what I hit off the tee (hybrid). It's a heat map of 19 shots, some of which were taken by gps on different holes and courses (2 from this hole), and the rest from a simulator. The yellow line is my aim line and the end point is what I where I would have thought I would have hit it (this is just a quick static prototyping to see if I could create the shot patterns, so the overlay and aim lines aren't perfect, just mocked up).
Clearly, 1) I don't hit it as far as I thought, 2) this is the wrong club and/or the wrong line, and 3) yes, I have a beautiful two way miss right now, lol.
I have lots of ideas of where to go from here, but after reading this whole thread, I thought I'd share it and get your thoughts and ideas.
Waiting impatiently for the book,
