I'm about 50 pages into this so far. Really enjoying how he weaves the stories and history into his journey. I'm learning a lot about the history of golf.

I read Paper Tiger and really liked it.

If things ever calm down a bit I should get this book or one of his others.

I’ve read his two previous “Course” books. They were excellent. I will download this to read.

Just finished, and enjoyed it. He really points out the contrast between golf in Ireland and the UK vs. golf in the USA. He played quite a few golf courses that most folks have no chance of ever playing vs courses where most can play in his previous books.

I’m about half way through it. It’s a good read. I hope someday I can play the public courses he writes about.

Finished the book. It was very good. I’m glad that I’ve played a few of the courses including Keney Park in Hartford. He had that as one of the best public courses.

    • I suppose it depends on the length of the golf course.  I would say somewhere between a 7 and PW.  Personally I would like a PW because that is one of the favourite clubs in my bag and is useful enough to get you out of must situations onto the fairway.  If you are intending to use it to reach a green, then a longer club may well be required.  Definitely don't go something as long as a 5 iron, unless the course is such that you have no rough to speak off, in which case a 5 iron would be useful as punch out type of club to keep it low
    • Day 114 (7/29/21) -  Practice green - Worked on chipping with my 58* and 6H to different holes and from different lies, then putting out. Then played 5-holes of chip and putt, scoring a 13.  When putting, I focused on the hole, rather than the ball.  Range - Hit a small bucket. With wedges, hybrids and fairway woods I focused making sure the low point of my swing was in front of the ball. For driver, I focused on swinging smoothly and making sure the low point was behind the ball. The 2-3 best drives I hit today, bar far, were using the Distanza shaft in my G400.  
    • A group of us are playing a week in Arizona next month, and we are permitting ourselves to carry and use a 15th "desert" club for hitting out of rocks, dirt and the many less-than-club-friendly places our golf balls will find themselves. (I know that scratched clubs don't really affect performance).  What's the best desert club?  5 iron? 8 iron? Mark <>
    • @DeadMan, I wrote to support@gamegolf.com 
    • I just checked, and it looks like 5 of my 7 lost rounds are now on there, too. Missing 2 others, which is strange. What's the e-mail you used, @Shindig?
