I received the book today.  I actually ordered from Amazon before I read on a thread here that those were not authorized copies of the book. I am returning that copy and keeping the copy I received from the LSW website.  You can definitely tell the difference in quality.  The legit copy is at least 1/8" thicker due to heavier paper.

I will start reading as soon as I hit submit on this post.

Thank you very much for doing that. Even as easy as Amazon returns are, I know it's still a bit of a hassle. I appreciate it.

I think our cover is nicer too. 😄

I did the same thing and ended up returning the first one to Amazon.

Got mine last week. Thanks. Early in the book. So far separation value and weight forward have resonated with me

...weight forward...Unconsciously started a slight weight forward shift as a start to my backswing this past weeks and finding I am striking the ball a little more consistently

....SV...I am often 20 yards short on approach but put away those 20 yards due to clubs I think I wasn't striking well. Gonna rethink getting those 20 yards back. Maybe it is the faster back swing. I'm a very laid back person and so is my swing.

I've just finished the book. I like the practice and game management section. Some solid advice that I've started to use right away. I kind of don't take the time right now to chart my shot zone since I cannot go to my balls at the range and I rarely play alone to shoot 10 balls from the same location, but I know my tendencies and approximate yardage with my club to use it to some extends when planning my shots. I will have to take the time to do this at some point. I've started to use foot spray on my club face and it help a lot when practicing. Also, the advice to aim for the middle of the green on approach shot and even with sand shot (forget the flag, put in on the green!) help. I don't take lessons and that practice section will help a lot to be more efficient with the limited practice I have. So overall a good buy, that I will definitely read multiple times in the future!

Still reading. Just started Shot zone. I'm a lefty, 20 cap , I suppose the oval is opposite for me, and that make s sense for my own play. 

I may find this out as I read more tonight... but...is there any rule of thumb for which side of tee box to use vs hazards? My ball flight is basically a fade.

I generally play the left side of a golf course fairway or left side of a green. 

Should I start taking that gamble and aim a little more right

The choice of tee box side doesn't make a big difference, especially at our level.  On the other hand, you should map out for a given starting point where the likely finishing spots of your ball are, and choose that line accordingly.   A fade for you moves right to left:  if it's reliable enough that most of your shots don't curve to the right, then aiming right may make some good sense, so I'm not sure why you're calling it a gamble.  Maybe I misunderstood what you're saying.

Just read the book last month. Loved it, especially the part on game planning, decision maps, etc. Really useful and easily laid out.

I read somewhere about an LSW app to map shots. Is that still available?

No, the company that produced it for us split off from Medicus, etc. It's not longer available.

Very happy you enjoyed the book!

Re-reading now and made a promise to myself to re-read it again and take it with me to the range, especially the practice putting green. Doesn't help to have a book on the shelf without knowing AND PRACTICING what's in it, said the Zen Master. Too soon old, to late smart. Best, -Marv
