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.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
