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:

Great book! I'm only 80 something pages in, but this is so good. I'm so happy for you guys, @iacas and @david_wedzik . I can already picture 100 years from now (medicine has impro

@MEfree you're taking the wording too literal, the book doesn't say "money back guarantee" it says it's "guarantees lower scores immediately",   It's a basic marketing technique.  Do you call TM an

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.

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'm really looking forward to this book. Good luck, Erik and Dave! I hope you guys reach your goal. I was happy to make a contribution after all the free help I've received from you guys over the years. Thanks! :beer:

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.

    • Another example is giving unsolicited advice. Could be as simple as, "it plays long." Supposed to be a two stroke penalty.  
    • Does anyone remember that photo from about 10 years ago that showed a guy walking across Washington Road with his beginner set of golf clubs on a  buggy because he had secured a ticket for one of the practice rounds? It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. I've tried to find it but can't.
    • This was the fourth time I played round of golf and very first time I kept a score. I got 115, double par limit,  good bad or ugly?  This was also first time I played with this neighbor and his friend, thanks to them who don’t mind a newbie like myself. The course, canyon lake CA, is pretty short course 6000 yds but with some narrow fairway and quite a bit of elevation. My observation The first few rounds was when my friend, who got me into golf game, showed me around of what I would see in golf course and also showed me different stroke/shot and different clubs. First off, good stuffs, I got a few chances of birdie, two of them were short par 3 (150-160 yds) 5-iron hit on the green, a few straight driver 200+yds landed on fairway. Only got 1 par out of 18 holes, mostly double bogies and a few double par. Lost only 2 balls, got into bunker only 3 times (2 were successfully rescued in first strokes) and only 2 second hit from the tee.    The bad, ugly and need a lot of improvement. Got 4-5 drop penalties 2 lost ball, the rest were in the rough and behind brushes. Never got 1 putt into the holes mostly 2 putts and a few 3 putts. And quite a bit (4-5) of hit the ground shots. My observation. I need a lot of consistency, I got a few good shots while my neighbor’s friend (score 85) got only a few bad shots. Better judgment, instead of easily chipping (less than 30yds with clearly view to the flag, I pitched and end up either short or way over. Aiming, I only got the ball landed where I want it a few times, a few 15-25 feet off and a lot of not even close 😢😢😢. And clubs selection, I got a few shorts shot to the green (80-100yds). I hope this will improve the more I play. I enjoyed the game and company, I say it way better than when I had no idea what to do and what clubs to use.😁😁😁. A few shots I got on video  (short and missed aim, too bad I didn’t get any of lucky shots)  
    • Day 62, July 26, 2021: Three-quarter swing work again today, hey I may lose a little bit of distance, but I know where the ball is going.
    • Iacas doesn't need to. The polling has been done by others and the general feeling is overwhelmingly clear. These titles have to go. This is an issue that has been addressed for at least a couple of decades and it is only now that things are actually being changed, rather than merely talked about. You don't get to say that something isn't objectively offensive because it's an issue you don't care about. People are going to decent lengths to prove to you that it isn't a matter of opinion. The fact that YOU don't care is irrelevant. There are a few in this thread who say stuff like "people are too easily offended" or "people are too thin-skinned". No, people care about  demonstrably negative and demeaning names and stereotypes and are supporting efforts to wipe them out. Why does that bother you?
