I watched the Game Planning one and am watching the others now. 

I learned a couple things from watching you guys talk through the shot zones while on the course. For some reason seeing the satellite view helped make the shot zones feel more real than just reading them in the book. It made me realize I'm not doing a good enough job leaving enough of a buffer for penalty areas and how much your shot shape affects where you aim within a shot zone. I always just aimed at the center of my shot zone and hoped for the best, especially off the tee.

I also like the short game drills, looking forward to trying some of those out once things reopen.

So watched #1. As a long time member and someone who has read LSW a few times, I expected it to be content rich. Well, let's say it delivers. 

First vid sets a great tone of how Separation Value not only impacts where the most shot gains are 'hidden' but also that golf at our level is about very learnable skills and not about God given talent..i.e., you have it...or you don't type of thinking that plagues lot of golfers. 

I enjoyed short game skills portion specifically as that has been my Achilles heel. 

I might jump to Game planning and then speed vid next. 

P.S. The delivery is very watchable.

I'd love to purchase but the budget for golf is not there at the moment, recently purchased the book so these will have to wait 😕

They'll still be there! 🙂 The 33% off coupon is only guaranteed to be there through the end of April, though.

Less than £50, a bloody bargain! Essentially the wonderful book, brought to life with some extras thrown in. Brilliant.

My only concern (from your POV) might be that people will get this instead of the book rather than 'as well as'.

Best wishes though, LSW is some of the clearest insight I've had into the game! I need to post on here more and get more involved.

This is a little off topic, but it looks like you're going to sell the video in dvd format. If that's correct, people still buy dvds?

Well, for about the same price, they can get both. The discount is roughly the cost of the books.

But, this doubles the avenues we have to reach people. Those who might not want to read a book… can watch the video. It's additive, not "subtractive."

And, because the books are a physical good, they cost more to make than each additional video set sold. So, if profit was all we cared about, we'd rather people buy the videos than the book.

(We're at almost 20,000 books sold, btw, which is a ton, but also a drop in the bucket of how many potential golfers are out there, too.)

Were. Past tense.

Cuz that's how Medicus liked to do things.

Sorry in advance for this but as a student and guy who bought the book and read it a few times - is there a thought about adding some coupons again sometime soon? 😬

    • If only there were decades of tournament data that could provide statistical clarity to the question. 
    • I have had lessons in the past. In addition to this ive read countless ideas on the swing by so many people and watched gold constantly. When i was good at golf, i had a swing where i attacked the ball very much from the inside and played with a strong draw. My grip was odd...the left hand pretty neutral but the right hand strong. The swing was very short and had a very fast tempo, not dissimilar to someone like Nicholas Thompson off the PGA tour. I got down to a 2 handicap at lowest, and usually a low 3 handicapper hovering around 2.5, 2.6 index. I wanted to get better as i never felt i hit the ball that well, so i sought out lessons and i saw the trackman numbers and such. We worked on getting the grip better, actually aligning to the target better (whereas before i would just kind of walk up to the ball, shuffle around a bit till i felt it was ok and hit), i started really focusing on things that i still think are good like alignment, routine etc. And the swing path became less inside out. For a while i played great, then i started getting steeper and steeper and hitting disgusting pull slices all day. THEN, it started getting to the point where, my mind wouldnt let me take the club away. I would do all kinds of crazy stuff like the club would bounce up and down and my takeaway totally frozen even though pros recommended trigger moves etc. Then because the game wasnt enjoyable because of the yipping, id start taking time off because i didnt want to go through with all of this and then, i started losing my flexibility, getting bigger etc. Now I just dont want to go because the only emotions i ever feel are frustration, resentment, annoyance, wanting it to be over after 10 mins and feeling like theres 4 more hours left etc. If you could take me back to a time where i did not yip, i would play the game again and absolutely love it, but its never ever coming back. Ive tried everything. It HURTS. Ive never been any good at ANYTHING else in my life. I put everything into golf from the age of 12 up to about 25. The last 10 years has just been too much for me. i just cant take it
    • So do you need the club that fills your stated clubs to hold greens (are you going to hit into the greens / all carry)? Or are you fine with some roll out? Hold greens > properly fitted hybrid ~19/20 degrees loft. Some rolll out ok / does not hit directly into a green > properly fitted 5 wood/~17-18 degrees loft. 
    • I would love to see Tiger start to use one of these  
    • First of all, nice job with getting a bit more on plane going back. The club isn’t going nearly as much to the inside which is good. I’d take screenshots of where you are at A2 and keep tracking that so you can be sure you are starting back on plane. Overall, you are trending the right way here! I don’t really think the head movement is anything to be focusing on. If anything, it is a symptom of the OTT move and not a cause. The more important thing to notice about the transition is the shoulder move and what exactly it is accomplishing and then working back from that a little bit to find the root cause. What I see is a shoulder move in transition that is a compensation for your pretty flat shoulder turn. Look at how flat your shoulders are at the top of the backswing and then look at how much steeper they get right after you start the transition. The answer to this might very well be what @iacas was suggesting by nudging you towards working on your torso turn in the early backswing. That should help get your shoulder turn to be a bit steeper. Before you start true downswing/transition thoughts or work: backswing, backswing, backswing.
