Lowest Score Wins - a first-of-its kind golf book for anyone who wants to lower their score

Recommended Posts

June 10, 2014 - Lowest Score Wins is now available for purchase at http://lowestscorewins.com/! Get your copy, hot off the presses, and shoot lower scores GUARANTEED!

As some of you may know, @iacas (Erik) and I have been doing research over the past couple years for a golf book called "Lowest Score Wins". Our background work is 95% complete and the writing has begun :-P .

Indiegogo (we have raised almost $2000 so far in the form of purchased books) and I'm posting this here now as we know every golfer can benefit greatly from this book!

Right now, you can support Lowest Score Wins and get yourself a first edition book (as you know there is only one first edition) at almost $10 less than it will sell for after the campaign.

If you like the idea, even a little ;-) , please SHARE it with as many of your buddies, family and social network friends as you can.


Here is a section of the text from Indiegogo to give you an idea what the book is about:

What is "Lowest Score Wins"?

"Lowest Score Wins" (or "LSW") is a first-of-its kind book that will lower your score the very next time you play.

Lots of books promise to make you better… What makes LSW different?

Golf books have traditionally fallen into one of several categories: some purport to help you with the mental game, some will try to assist you with your golf swing, or your short game. These books, though helpful, often fail to help you lower your score… not today, not tomorrow, not next year.

By combining our rich statistical analysis, simple techniques, and gameplan building blocks, LSW will help you build your own Lowest Score Gameplan to shave strokes off your score quickly. We will show you specifically what to do and what pitfalls to avoid every time you play golf. We will show you techniques to quickly improve your game without overhauling your swing. We'll examine statistics - of the game's best, average, and poorest players - and show you how to take advantage of the skills you already possess.

What are people saying?

"I've worked with a lot of golf instructors in my time on Tour and as President of Medicus Golf, and Dave and Erik have created the simplest, best, most well-rounded approach to shooting lower scores that I've ever seen." -- Bob Koch, President and Founder of Medicus Golf

"Dave and Erik's approach to scoring is something I'd only dreamed about. I always knew there had to be an easier way… turns out there was!" -- Tim Macre, Head Athletic Trainer, NHL Buffalo Sabres

"I've spent my career helping people lower their scores as well as my own! The concepts in Lowest Score Wins provided me a roadmap to continue to compete against the younger guys while helping my students shoot their best scores EVER." -- Graham Gunn, former Canadian PGA Professional of the Year, Canadian Club Professional Player of the Year, and Senior European Tour Player

One final note. This campaign closes in only 29 days so time is limited if you want to grab a first edition copy of the book. Thanks in advance!

You can contribute, pick up your copy/copies, and find out more information here:

Here's a video we put together explaining the project.

We're very excited to be doing this. As the video says, it's a great and unique blend of technique, stats, strategy, and so on. If you play golf regularly at all, this book will help you lower your scores immediately by changing the way you play the game.

THANK YOU!

Pleased to support this. Just a heads-up: if you use auto-fill in your browser, it might not fill in country and/or state (at least, mine didn't), and my first attempt said it was an invalid request. I figured it out the second time through :)

I gladly supported this cause. As being a follower of TST for a few years now, and have taken lessons from Erik at his facility in Erie, PA. I have great respect for Dave and Erik in their knowledge of the game of golf. As two people who have such immense knowledge of the golf swing, and how methodical their methods were in developing the 5 keys, this book will have the same respect for detail and analysis.

I personally did two contributions, the $65 dollar for the 4 paperback books, and the $75 dollar for 1 hardcover + 1 paperback. The reasoning is because that would give me 5 copies to pass around to my family and friends who golf. I would keep the hard copy for myself.

As someone who has taken lessons from Erik. I highly recommend the $395 contribution. The lesson itself is worth that. You'll gain more knowledge about the swing of golf and how to improve your golf game in one afternoon than you will probably have in your whole golfing career.

Please support this cause, it is worth it for yourself, and for the golf community who will benefit from this book being published.

On my iPhone so I'll just ditto Matt. I believe in these guys, and think this is going to be a great book. I've also purchased myself a hardcover as well as several paperbacks to gift out to friends. I encourage anybody who wants to improve and/or help a couple of guys publish their first book to at least pitch in the $15. I have no doubt it'll be worth it!

Just want to highlight that Dave and Erik will do a two day school at your hometown for $4995. Get 8 guys together and it's only $625 each for TWO DAYS of instruction - full swing, short game, strategy, gameplanning, the works. If the school is anywhere in the Southwest (looking at you SoCal guys) then I'll definitely be there so you'll get even more personal one-on-one instruction.

I'll definitely be supporting this. The information that these guys have is amazing. What I've learned about the swing so far from them has helped me out immensely and now to get a good look at how to develop a game plan will be great. Can't wait until the book is actually out.

I've really been looking forward to this book since I heard the whispers about its possible conception. I have found the "how would you play this hole?" threads to be fascinating and really believe that ANY player at ANY level will see significant change in their ability to score better simply by avoiding the bad choices that railroad you into big numbers. Will it make you a better swinger of the club? No, but it will get you into situations where you have the best opportunities to walk away with a good score.

You often hear good players talking about playing the odds or going with the high percentage plays, this book will teach what that really means and how to play that way.

I dont know if I will learn as much as some people-I have my own theories tested over time-But youre right that $15 or $40 is not a lot in golf and you can easily make that back beating your buddies. Im in for a few copies as soon as I get home.

    • Not an individual tournament but with a partner(s), sure. Even if it's another low handicapper we can compete if we play well but most likely won't win. I agree with you what you're saying. Most of the club tournaments I play in have a gross division so it's not a big deal. One tournament where I've seen low handicappers have an advantage is a format where teams are divided into flights based on combined handicap. If you win that flight you play against the winners of the other flights in a horserace where strokes are greatly reduced. Most of the horse races I've seen or been a part of of are won by teams from the first two flights, the lower handicap flights.
    • Checked if my shoulders were too flat in a mirror. Apparently not as bad as I thought. I'd like to be more conscious of it before tomorrow's lesson. Going to do a bunch of slow movements through the evening and tomorrow morning then progressively speed up and see if everything still looks reasonable with a full speed swing. . .
    • I've never actually met a golfer who swings differently when under pressure, that is, if he can swing to his handicap at all? Golf starts with a good swing, without that you've got no game.   Yes, but the player is dialing things in at a range. On the course everything is much harder because you only hit any club once per 10 to 15 minutes or something like that.   There's no mental aspect when you have a chance to hit ball after ball successively from the shortest club to the longest one. On the range you're dialed in. That's why many people hit well on the range and not so well on the course.   If you do this with a proper swing, then I'd imagine yes. You'd have a good swing. That good swing in turn will give you more confidence than any sort of motivational speech.   I've never been able to will the ball to go where I want it to, and don't know anyone who can do that without the physical training required to develop a decent swing.
    • This.  Over the years we've heard so much about golf and sports being mental but where are the great tips and instruction on the mental side of the game?  I've read some books on the subject but so far not by anyone who sounded like they actually played golf.  Here's one mental thing that I've done to help my game, imo:   While getting into my address position I look long at my target, glance at the ball to get feet and ball position aligned.  One more good look at the target and when I look back to the ball I begin my swing almost immediately.  This keeps tension from creeping into my muscles by staying too long at address thinking about too many things.  It also seems to help me stay more alert during the swing, rather than getting all tense and just hitting a start/panic button.  To me, this is part of the mental game and is one way the mind can make a huge difference in shot result.
