For those that bought the book a few questions:

1) How long did it take to ship to your house? I ordered mine 10 days ago and am still ANXIOUSLY awaiting its arrival!

2) What was the one thing you immediately implemented that had the most impact?

You might have wanted to post this in the book's thread instead of a new one.  You'd get more responses as people follow that one.

As for #1, have you contacted the author?  

As for #2, chapters 26 & 27 have had the biggest immediate impact on me, although I knew about #26 (from the author) before the book was published.

I hope this thread is okay to post this in.  The question arises from something in the book.

One of the at-home putting drills involves a metal yardstick.  I don't actually own one, and I'm going to get one so I can do the drill, especially because I've been worried a bit lately as to whether I start my putts on the intended line (it could also be rust, but even if it is, I should be practicing and improving that).  I have no idea what to look for in one.  I'm likely to just buy from Amazon, so if there's a particular suggestion from there, I'm fine with that.  

I have a ... paper? or some other soft substance thing that I can put a golf ball on and measure a yard, but I don't think it'd be good for the drill.

You want:

  • Metal (thinner than wooden yardsticks, often aluminum).
  • A hole on one end, ideally.
  • Uhhh… it to be 36" in length. Though a metal meter stick is okay too. ;-)

$2.98 at Lowe's. Fits in your golf bag.

Excellent, thank you!  I'm going to be near a Lowe's for sure in the next week.  I may have to deliberately go there sooner though.

Wait, they ship for free and it will get to me before I get to them.  Problem solved.  Thanks again!

Thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot.  Surprisingly large amount of never before read content.  Very glad I bought it, and will be referring back to it often.  Well done!

Just became aware of LSW today, ordered my copy just now from the book website. Looking forward to reading it, and hope to apply yet this season (end of Sept here). Better late than never...

Guess that's another badge?

Possibly more, such as "tournament winner" that you might get from applying what you learn :-)

I've only been on TST for a few months. I don't remember exactly what led me to this thread and the book, but it started with finding this EXCELLENT thread a couple days ago.

    • I spent quite some time auditioning hybrids until I settled on a 5 and 3 wood.  Once I'd done that it became a matter of choosing a hybrid that suited, or fit, the space between my irons and fairways.  It isn't, to my thinking, what hybrid is best...it's which hybrid is most like the clubs on either side.  I want the weight, and flex, to be similar to my 4 iron and 5 wood.  In other words:  I'd rather fit one club to the set than craft a set around one club.
    • Day 133.  Had a little bit of time, wish I had more.  Did the 6' putting drill I've been doing;  this time, I hit 7/12 on the first go-around!  And then 3 of 5 the second one.  It was fantastic.   I then set up 8 roughly equidistant stations from 9' out.  First go-around, sank none.  Second go-around, sank 4.  Hey, 4/8 from that distance is great, and for that matter, 4/16 isn't bad from that distance for me.  Took me a bit more time to sink the rest.   You might wonder why I'm doing so much putting lately.  It was an emergency and I only have n=1 rounds where it has looked good since declaring the emergency.  Also, I had to pack up my home golf room so I can't practice full swing in limited time as I used to (yes, there are drills I could do that don't involve hitting a ball).  Not worry, plenty of full swing work before too long.  
    • During the club fiasco of 2019, after FedEx lost my golf clubs and I was waiting for Cobra to build me a new set of F9 One Lengths (5i - SW), I made a mistake. I bought into hype. I went down and tried out a new set of hybrids. Callaway Epic Flash. The reviews were that they were long and forgiving. Well, true and sort of true. I had a little problem with "over fading them", but with a draw setting to make them a little more upright, that seemed to fix that and I was hitting them long and straight in the shop. Unfortunately this did not last. I do not like them. I have zero confidence with the 5H. The "over-fade" with the 4H and 3H is back. I did not have this issue with my Bio Cell hybrids. The Bio Cells were not as long, but I could hit them straight in a neutral face setting. They were also heavier in the club head. D6 vs D0. I think the weight was further back in them too for more forgiveness. What makes this a mistake is that I used them as part of the funding for the Epic Flash Hybrids. I have a 60 day playability guarantee on the Callaways. Basically if I don't like them I can return them. I'm going to return them, but I'll need a set of hybrids. I'll bring my 6i with me. So do you guys have any suggestions for any that are easy to get in the air and tend to keep a relatively narrow dispersal pattern?
    • Day 27 Worked with my weighted club, but this time, I placed a football between my arms and held it in place as I focused on my takeaway.  Really trying to keep my width, and prevent my arms from folding as I have had a tendency to allow in the past.
    • I got up for the 3am start on Friday. Had the dvr record todays start. Probably should have done this in reverse order. Still very enjoyable. Love the format and the US vs Europe. I still have some hope for Decembers Pres. Cup. Maybe that team can be somewhat competitive.   Solheim and Ryder Cup still a must watch for me.
