I've gone through a small library of golf books in 40 yrs.  Now have only a very few which i picked up at a yard sale.  Don't know if i would ever again pay full price for a golf book.

What about U?  Are you reading and replacing your golf books?

Am reading Sieckmann's book, ebook actually and read LSW but more and more for me now, it's video. Lots of swings out there plus lessons and analysis. Video can be deceiving but less so than words or pictures. I'll buy a book if it's good, but I feel like I get more out of watching than reading now. I'm guessing the next step after video is 3D. And I'm tired of books like Clampett's where pretty much all you get is aim in front of the ball, come to my clinics. Bah.

I'm in the process of getting a bunch of books from my shelf and storage that I'll be donating to a library to make space. I'll probably put some golf books in there -- I remember buying, for example, Corey Pavin's book on shot shaping many years ago (used for cheap) because I thought it'd be useful to help me get to the next level. Now I look at it and know how much of the information in it is wrong.

I stopped buying books after 5th.   I've only read one book cover to cover, 3 times.  The rest?  I am embarrassed to admit I have not even come close to reading any of them cover to cover.    I vowed to not buy another book until I read the ones I have already.

    • 😂🤣 So wish you could have made it, bro. Next time!
    • I'm down. Just spit some dates at me so i can see about availability.
    • It is insane this is still being talked about. I read that people are saying he was the winner. Crazy!
    • Day 109.  Round of 16 of my club's match play.  I lost 3&2 but made a new friend.  There's this issue that happens to me at this course we played (not our home course due to availability of tee times).  It's come up a few times, but ... my second shot on the first three holes, plus my tee shot on the par-3 4th, were horrible.  Seems to happen to me I hit a few bad early shots, despite getting to the course, stretching, and warming up.  Despite this, still had sub-10 handicap baseline strokes gained: approach.  And for the first time, sub-10 handicap baseline SG:driving.  I also did some "miss the green" short game shots from what should be easy positions today... did that four times, totally inexcusable. I sank some long putts even but missed some short ones.  Putting was sub-20 handicap level today, which was cool.  Gotta pull it all together at some point again. 
    • Day 3 June 12 - Went to the driving range to get used to a new wedge. I had a wedge fitting yesterday and needed to find out if I could hit touch shots with it in addition to the full shots. 25 shots with it. Done. Then went on to work on getting through the shot with my irons. I need to get my weight forward and stay on plane through the shot better. Why is it so easy to stay on plane with my 5W? I can return that on the original shaft plane and smoke shot after shot. But why is it so much more difficult with my irons? I need to take a video and look at this. I need to look at what I'm doing with my 5W and move that over to my irons.
