I can't wait to get mine!  Wish I knew the tracking number for mine.....

Sent it to you. It was in Minnesota this morning.

Can I get it signed..

Possibly, though to be fair to everyone who pre-ordered and paid for a signature, it should be extra.


Please remember that when you're done reading it (maybe even after you've read it once and re-read a few chapters):

Mine came in yesterday, but this week is such that I won't be able to read it until Thursday afternoon. Why must the envelope taunt me so?

Is the shipping to Europe done this week?

thx

All pre-orders shipped last Wednesday or Thursday (we forgot about six and they shipped Thursday, the rest shipped Tuesday/Wednesday with international ones on Wednesday).

I've been to the post office every day since then, so the longest anyone has waited for a book to ship is about 24 hours (if you ordered just as I left for the PO).

And now that I am home I can confirm that they have shipped it and that I received my copy today.

You got your book? Less than a week after we shipped it? To the Netherlands?

Sweet!

Got my books today, they look great.  I will read the paperback and save the hard cover for collectors once Dave and Erik make their first appearance on The Tonight Show or Letterman.

I think Letterman is retiring soon. We'd better hurry!

According to USPS, it's at my house.

Unfortunately I'm not at my house; I'm at Panama City Beach on vacation. Fortunately, I'm at Panama City Beach, on vacation.

Can't wait to get back and read it tomorrow. Something to look forward too.

Placed my order around 6pm on the 19th and it was at my door when I got home on the 23rd.  Two days earlier than USPS predicted.

Took the metro (that's what we call the subway, here) to work instead of driving so I could get a couple chapters in during the commute.  All I can say is that I can't wait to get to a trackman and plot my Shot Zone.

Well the book is out now so I expect you'll be getting the call any day now.

Reading it on the subway so you're getting some free advertising and a good demographic at that :-)

    • Thanks for the feedback, @Bucki1968. May I ask what you didn’t like at Atlantic Dunes? I’ve also read that a lot of people liked it better that Harbour Town; more specifically that HT in the off-season isn’t kept at championship condition and isn’t worth the extra money. I’d probably bite the bullet and play HT if this was the only trip to Hilton Head I was planning on doing in my life but I have this timeshare access for 37 more years 😃
    • For me it would have to be on a hole “designed and built” as a par 3, even on par three courses with holes less than 100yds.  Don’t see where a Mulligan really qualifies as a legit hole-in-one, likewise Simulators offer perfect conditions, so real weather is not in play.  Personally I have come close a couple of times of late - the ball finishing within a couple feet of the hole.  
    • Here we go. I should mention that I work with Erik on Evolvr so I get routine coaching and swing feedback there. I have no plans to stop that in 2023 so "get help from Erik" is an ongoing element of seeking feedback for each of these items. Track missed shots with narrative / details (intention vs outcome) Review these monthly and feed into my other drill and improvement work. Arccos gives me good dispersion data, but cannot incorporate what I was intending to do. Biggest gains here I expect will be off the tee. For example, aiming for right edge of fairway but I pull it left towards OB but still land in the left side of fairway. Looks good on paper but is far from what I intended. Realistically I don’t expect to track every shot this way, but enough each round to produce enough evidence on trends to monitor. Play in at least three individual stroke play tournaments in 2023 At least one of these being a Rochester District Golf Association tournament Stoke medal play will be a true benchmark of improvement over time. I view 2023 as a baseline setting year so have no specific outcome goals here other than participation. Improve driver speed (from TheStack baseline start speed of 99) Goal is 105 by August 1 2023 I'm turning 55 in December so perhaps 105 is aggressive and perhaps "maintain current speed" would be more realistic, but I'm gonna try. I’m not convinced that Stack gives enough specific guidance on how to improve (other than repeated testing and workout sessions), but I have access to Top Speed Golf which should help with technique training. Improve strokes gained putting, with a focus on 0–10 foot putts Current overall –1.7 putting, –1.8 on 0–10 foot Routine practice (9–11 foot challenge, Mickelson circle putting) at least twice per week on this range, with speed control work mixed in (ladder drill primarily). Consider taking either a refresher AimPoint class, or the AimPoint level II Goal is –1.4 putting (past 10 rounds vs scratch) measured around December 2023. Stretch goal is –1.0.
    • I'm only "counting" the first one and the temporary par-3 tee box.  Definitely not "counting" the Mulligan. First of all, I'm anti-mulligan to begin with.  Definitely not "counting" the simulator par-3 hole in one.  I'm open to counting the short par-3's on a regular course. But I've actually not seen any that short as far as I can remember. So I'm not sure how often that comes up. Unless you are playing the forward tees, in that case I say count it.  Par-3 course holes-in-one are great and exciting, but don't really "count" in my estimation. Although I prefer counting these to either the Mulligan or the simulator holes-in-one.
