Cheers, just seen it's also posted on the first page of this thread so excuse my stupidness.

I added it. I could only add it to people I knew had bought. I don't know everyone's real names. :)



BTW, If you want a copy of the book, we're honoring our Indiegogo prices through April. You'll have to PayPal us at sales@ this domain: analyzrgolf.com and we'll add you to the list of pre-orders.

Prices will go up to probably $25 shipped (U.S.) and $45 shipped (U.S.) once we're into May.


BTW, the Facebook URL is now: https://www.facebook.com/groups/lowestscorewins/ . Though the other will still work.

I would like to buy a copy.  Is there a link somewhere?

We're taking money via PayPal at sales@analyzrgolf.com (for the same cost as the Indiegogo campaign) through the end of April.

Choose "Goods/Services" and if you'd like to use a different address specify it in the note. Add the "level" that you're buying in the Note field as well.

Dave pointed out to me today that at the very bottom of one of the posts on the first page in this thread… I said…

Dave and I are talking about writing a book on some of this stuff. You know, in the infinite free time we have. :P

You want teased? Here's another…

No, I won't tell you if you guessed correctly, so please don't bother.

We're on target for a May shipment.

And we have to find the right person to write the forward… :D

Yes, I accept the honor of writing the forward...

If you were your avatar, we'd let you.

Then we were gonna let @saevel25 , but the publisher refused to publish our book with all those your/you're, they're/their/there, its/it's, and other sundry typos. :-O Bwah ha ha ha. :-D:beer:

(Funny story about Arnie writing the forward… for another time, and in private…)

May be the first book ever written by two dudes with "z"s in their last name.

    • Cost and time.   THanks..have to give it a try..just trying to get back into my set without investing $$ for the time being..TY!
    • From yesterday's round. Approach to the green was a little long, and my ball was sitting on the back fringe. Large pile of coyote shit between the hole and my ball. The putt was right to left breaking so luckily my line was maybe 2-3 feet to the right of the turd, and there wasn't much chance of rolling into it, unless I hit a terribly offline putt, or got unlucky with a deflection off a bump in the fringe (which is quite beat up where my ball came to rest).
    • You're not supposed to change your vote. 😛 The problem with that is that the "shotgun pattern" doesn't account for the putts that go in. Yes, the distributions of both get larger. Bobby should have studied probability more. A putt going toward the hole, if mis-directed, can go left or right. Both result in a miss. A putt that is missing the hole, if mis-directed, can go left or right. One may result in a make, the other is still a miss. Bumps (if large enough to deflect the ball a little over an inch or so, and if close enough to the hole for a miss to become a make) have a negative outcome 100% of the time when the ball is going in, and a positive outcome 50% of the time when the ball is going to miss. Or to put it in absolute terms, every bump on a ball that would be going in the middle has a negative outcome - it steers the ball farther away from the center of the hole, and every bump that steers the ball on a putt that's missing has a 50% chance of "helping" by steering it in the right direction. Nope. You can join Bobby Jones in the statistics/probability class. 🙂 These bumps aren't knocking the ball feet farther away. They're not tees randomly stuck in the ground. They're just bumps on a putting green. That's the kind of road you can lead yourself down when you don't just look at it logically. 😄 To the majority of you getting this one wrong… Let's make an extreme example. You have one putter that makes 80% of his putts, and another that makes 50%. The gap is 30% or 0.3 strokes (1.2 versus 1.5). You introduce enough randomness that 25% of the putts that were going to go in miss and 5% of the putts that were going to miss go in. The gap is now: 0.8 * .75 + 0.2 * .05 = 61%. 0.5 * .75 + 0.5 * .05 = 40% What was a 30% gap is now a 19% gap. The gap narrows. The good putter is punished, even though he's punished at the same "rates" as the bad putter, at a higher "value" because he hits more putts that would have gone in, while the bad putter hits more putts that could potentially only be directed in. To put it another way, there's a larger possible "negative" adjustment or change for the good putter and a larger possible "positive" adjustment or change for the bad putter. This is true in pretty much* all cases: the more luck plays a role, the less skill plays a role. * I'm a "never say never or always" kinda guy. I can't think of a time when an increase in randomness or luck also increases or at least doesn't reduce skill, but again… see the first sentence here in this asterisk.
    • Why? On 40 foot putts, they both don’t have much of a chance.  It’s the putts inside 15 feet that have the highest Separation Value.  So if a great putter makes 5 of 10 putts at 8 feet (tour average) on tour greens and he missed 1 or 2 more on crappy greens, his percentage changes more. The bad putter is missing more of those anyway, even on good greens.
    • Right. I think you could make the case that for a single longer putt (40 feet? 50 feet?) the greens would hurt a mediocre putter more and widen the gap. Because speed is such an important variable, and the mediocre putter is more likely to miss the sweet spot, hit a putt with sidespin, or do any number of things to increase the impact of imperfections on the greens. But at the end of the day, those long putts become short or mid-range putts and I think the net effect hurts the good putter more when everything is combined together.
