I'm reading it now, so far I have taken a lot from it. I think his simple view of things is what makes the book so enjoyable. What I'm really enjoying is the way the book is arranged, it literally fee

I learned to play in the '70's when Jack was king..Nicklaus' & Penick's instructions screwed me up for years. Flying right elbow...high hands, swing as hard as you can I can teach u to hit it str

So long as your "dead aim" is not at the flagstick from even 50 yards out… I can agree with that… so long as you're actually doing this:

I had heard this before but didn't know where it came from-I'm going to improve my score quicker through reducing mistakes than by getting birdies.

The other was an observation that I will always practice the things I am good at, rather than those things I should be practicing 

Good tidbits to remember

Finished the green book in Feb. Didn't think it compared to TLRB. Due to Covid, picked it up again last week. Must have been in the mood for Penick. Been golfing. My go to City course is open, with covid changes of course. The last two rounds, just didn't feel relaxed. Thinking too much. Read something in the green book that talked about just swinging the club and getting the ball in the hole. Felt much better the last round on Saturday. Thought about Penick after two different par 3 tee shots, both landing in the bunker. First time in a couple of years I blasted them out properly and saved par. Gotta remember to just swing the golf club and get it in the hole.

    • Thanks for clearing that up -- it's very reassuring.  I guess I've always used it like a Classic.  Which I'm fine with:  tag during the round, upload later, fix mis-tags etc, then get stats are the only features I've wanted.  I also had the "I thought that round vanished" thing happen a few months ago, and a few popped up, which was nice.  Maybe that will happen with these.

    • You can use it like Classic and upload via your phone after, but the “Live” part means you can use it live while you play on your phone. That’s not what I’ve said. If the rounds upload successfully they’re removed from the device. But they aren’t always  actually uploaded. Then again, I thought rounds were lost before and they appeared. That’s just “Classic” and you were notified years ago (like four or five) that using newer OSes and the Transfer app was being discontinued. Had you told them about your trip to SV and they just didn’t get it going in time for that, or were they unaware? It’d have been nice to use it there.
    • Day 109 (7/24/21) - Decided that I needed to review the 30-day Covid drills, so I started at the beginning with Day-1 - Early backswing. Did the left and right hand drills then added the pivot to A2, chipping a tennis ball in the yard for about 20-minutes using my 7-iron and 7-wood. When chipping the ball with this drill, I focused making a good turn thru the ball and making sure that my low point was in front of the ball. 
    • You can read my impressions so far here: If I had to make a recommendation right now, I'd say don't do it.  However, I've been in contact with the GG people, and they're trying to improve the performance.  I'd love for it to work, and I'm more than willing to do my part, all we can do is wait to see how it turns out.
