I really wasn’t sure what my expectations of LSW were. I had heard a decent bit about it, but it almost always seemed to be about shot zones and separation value (incredibly useful things in their own right). However, this book is just chock-full of incredibly useful information not only on how to be a better golfer during my next round but also how to go about building a comprehensive practice plan as well as much more technical wisdom than I had thought.

Incredibly good read. My only lamentation is not grabbing it earlier.

Ooh I didn't realise one could get a badge! Own it, have read it several times.  Have it to hand most of the time. I also own the Pure Strile 5SK book.  Please may I have stickers? 🙂

FWIW the 5SK book was based on our stuff, but was not "ours." Long story there, but we don't support or endorse it.

You should claim your awards here:

I gave you the LSW badge.

Oh really?  What would you recommend for actual technique work - in terms of understanding what to do (in simple terms).  I love the LSW book, and in places it recommends the 5SK website, which doesn't have much (or any) additional content or drills.  I have the S&T DVDs and subscribe to the academy so have the latest iteration of that material, which seems to be a fair implementation of the 5 keys.  I'm keen not to over-think or over-study, though.

The "TST Instructional Content" is a good place to start.

Done properly, S&T is a fair implementation, yeah. But many people don't implement it very well, including many S&T instructors. It gets perverted into a "weight forward throughout the whole downswing" type of method.

Thank you.  Where is the best place for me to record/journal my thoughts / lessons / experiences / observations etc?  I've been adding to the "what did you shoot" thread, but it's not so easy for me to go back and see my records without scrolling a long way.  I don't (yet) have a swing video (but perhaps I could make one).  I guess I'm wondering if there's a kind of "member blog" area?  Would that be "members swings"?

Member Swings, yeah.

Just received the book today. I'm only through the first few chapters, and I already want to go back and re-write almost every post I've ever written on this site about my own game.  Can't wait to find out everything else I'm going to learn.

This is not a spoiler, I promise.  There's at least one portion in the book where the authors reference something I said.  Spoiler, it was not a particularly insightful thing I said, but reading about it was. :-) However, I know I'm not the only person to have said that silly thing, and even if I were, I wouldn't have taken it personally.

@iacas I tried to send people your way (referenced LSW) from Twitter, when this posted - and a bunch of "Drive for Show, Putt for Dough" comments about folks picking no 3 putts over 300 yard drives

Thank you. Yes, 300 yards every time.

    • I’d like to see this evaluation done with the Mevo+. I’d like to know how the horizontal launch angle and spin axis compares to GC4. I do know that for the regular Mevo, the data I get hitting into my net is very similar to what I see in lessons with GC4. Hopefully they get to it at some point. One thing about TXG guys is that I can’t tell how sincere they are - don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the content they create, and watch many of their reviews, but I haven’t ever seen them outright say something sucks, which makes me a touch skeptical of their motives.
    • I thought I heard them say that they'd be doing more launch monitors. I'd guess Mevo will be one of them - if I heard correctly.
    • Day 346 Superspeed workout. Just sticking with protocol 2 until January when the TST superspeed accountability/progress group kicks off. Also did some tempo drills while getting warm for the superspeed stuff. 
    • Day 75 - More swings inside, really focused on the first part of my takeaway.
    • They did do this in an episode, and I believe Mike shot -2, the differential was like 1.9 though. One thing that was brought up to them by a playing partner was it's one thing to carry a 0.0 handicap at a home course, but another thing entirely to do it at a larger group of courses. They said "that makes sense" "good idea" etc., but did not stick to that plan either.
