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.

    • Day 316 Worked on figuring out a feel/thought to take on course for what I’m working on lately. Came to “right hand, right heel” as the mantra. “Right hand” part to not move my right hand into a strong grip during takeaway. “Right heel” part to get my weight pressure into the inside of my right heel, which means I’ve done a good turn. Hit about 30 balls, using this thought. 
    • Bought a new set of G410’s today.  Hit them at the range.  Loved them.  Bought the G410 driver too.  That thing was awesome.  Had to order the sand wedge and lob wedge today.  2-3 month wait time.  Getting the g410 3 hybrid next.   
    • This is the first year we have missed both Garland and Treetop in the last 5 years.   I really didn't miss Treetops except the par 3 but I do miss Garland.    I'm glad you were able to enjoy them.
    • Would you happen to know when these Mac LITE irons were made?   
    • Had a group of college friends together for a little 2 on 2 friendly competition. We all made bogey on 1. On 2 there is a little pond short left of the green. My partner hit into the hazard. Ball on the edge of the water. He goes in after it, where the water has receded and left a muddy edge. Dude goes into the mud waist deep. Shoe came off. Fell on his face. Literally worried that he was not going to get out. It’s 50 degrees and dude is covered in mud, wet. Needless to say I had to drive him back up to his car and that was the end of his day.    so we played individual for the day. On 15 holes I was 4 over par. On the other 3 holes, thanks to a pair of doubles and a triple I was 7 over. 11 over for the round is one of the first times I failed to break 80 for a round in a while. Overall for the day I didn’t play bad but those 3 holes were just ugly. 6. I hit a weak drive right on a hill, awkward lie. Couldn’t get a good stance. Chunk my shot. My 3rd was from 75 and I left that short. Chip on for 4 and 2 putts for a double 6. 13. 8 iron deep left. Chip on and 3 putt for a double 14. my 6 iron off the tee layup I chunk into the water. Haven’t hit a ball off the tee out of play all season here. Drop from 230 out up hill. Hit 3 wood and lucky to not be OB left. Barely in play and not a good stance with tree in my backswing. Leave that short of the green. Chip that on and 2 putt for a 7.  Did drive one onto the fringe at 8 today and had a putt at eagle on the hole for 1st time all year so managed an easy birdie there. Eagle lipped out. Would have been a nice boost considering the double at 6 and then 3 putt bogey at 7. Hit 10 GIR which is about where I would normally be any given day. Few more putts than normal but didn’t putt awful. If I could just have those 3 holes back!
