  1. The 4-Video Lowest Score Wins Video Set is Now Available! Get it here: https://lowestscorewins.com/video-set or here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/lowestscorewins Here's a brief trailer: The four-video set contains about 2½ hours of never-before-seen video. We walk through the concepts in LSW, and each video contains some unique bits you will not find in the book. Video 1: Separation Value® - Practicing the Skills That Matter Using Drills and Games In this video, Dave and Erik take a in-depth look at Separation Value and define it in the simplest way possi
  2. PGA TOUR Radio Listen to PGA TOUR Radio, where you'll hear the latest golf news, tournament scores & coverage and player highlights from the PGA TOUR, Champions Tour and Web.com Tour. https://www.pgatour.com/radio/on-the-mark.html Dave and I are on "On the Mark" with Mark Immelman this week, on PGA Tour Radio (podcasts). We join a really great list of previous guests: Give it a listen and let me know what you think! We recorded it about three weeks ago, and… I haven't heard the final product yet, and won't until this afternoon at the earliest. 🙂
  3. It drops off significantly after that, 7 yards is least penal and then ramps up to 13 yards, which is just as bad as 0-3. So if you're going off line, guess it's better to go 5-7 yards off the fairway.
  4. As with the book cover for LSW, Dave and I have put the trademarked term (yes, we trademarked it) "Golf is hard" up for design at 99designs.com. https://99designs.com/t-shirt-design/contests/create-t-shirt-design-fun-unique-shirts-catchy-557914/ Interested designers can submit designs, we'll rate and offer feedback, and just under four short days from now we'll narrow the field down to about four to six designers, and three days after that, we'll have our design! Dave and I plan to sell some fun t-shirts and other apparel with "Golf is hard" and other versions (an accountant might buy a shirt
  5. Today was the first day I have ever done the gate drill. Not the "tees on either side of the ball" gate drill I have done that plenty of times. I am talking about the one where you put alignment sticks upright in the ground about 20 feet or so from you and form some "goalpost" like gates to hit through. I read it in LSW, though I know its probably a common drill I just have never done it. My thoughts on this drill are WOW. I used these gates while hitting 7 Iron, 5 Iron, 3 Hybrid, and 3 wood. This drill did a lot for me on all of these clubs. When hitting Irons I really wanted the ball to star
  6. Good Morning from Houston. I was supposed to get my Shot Zones mapped this morning but it is now at or below freezing this morning after a cold front blew in so I will be waiting until it warms up a bit. However, I have been thinking A LOT about shot dispersion lately, and was wondering what is normal for different levels of golfers. So what is your shot dispersion (left/right) of your clubs? Are you a fairly consistent percentage throughout your bag (say 10% left or right). Or are you abnormally good or bad with specific clubs in relation to the rest of them (10% with short irons and 25
  7. I'm not going to belabor this point too much because there are a lot of specific scenarios people can use to prove or disprove this. I'm talking very generally here. If you were given the choice between a 50-foot putt or a 20-foot putt, which would you choose? Why, of course you'd choose the 20-foot putt, even if you had to putt up a tier or down a slope. As we know (from statistics, common sense, etc.), proximity to the hole is the single biggest determinant of the resulting distance from the hole. Duh. Shots from 20 feet finish closer to the hole and go in more frequently, on avera

  9. I've written before about how golfers don't seem to understand losing or gaining partial shots. We can't ever hit a shot that counts as only half or three tenths of a shot, after all. A missed five-foot putt counts the same as a drive we pure 285 down the middle. So, I'd like to take a few minutes here to cover partial shots and work our way toward "strokes gained" or lost as it applies to golfers of all levels - including you. The simplest way of looking at strokes gained and partial shots is with putting. From one inch away, every golfer in the world is expected to take 1.0 strokes
  10. Share your answers below. And answer the question for yourself first before responding to someone else's. Two quick notes: Please weigh "easy" versus how many strokes you could expect to save." Something that's 10% harder but saves 4 strokes instead of just 1 is a better answer. Please consider average 80s/90s golfers, not your own specific game.
  11. Simple tip on Par 5's, get as close as you can and forget the incorrect advice of laying up to a "comfortable" yardage. From the book Lowest Score Wins, Obviously I'm not saying to "go for it" blindly on every shot, but if you have a somewhat open shot you're only hurting yourself by laying up to 100 yards when you could be 30 yards short of the green. Even if you hit your fairway wood in the rough, you're better off from 30 yards than 100 yards in the fairway. With the shorter shot you have a much better chance of hitting the ball closer to the hole. Most of you aren't playing d
  12. My men's golf team won the AMCC Championship this past weekend with a two-day score of 637 (keeping the best four out of five scores). That works out to 79.625 on a fairly difficult layout at Avalon Lakes Golf & Country Club. ALGCC is a Pete Dye course that, like many Pete Dye courses, is very target-golf oriented. Dye seems to love to use visual trickery to goad players into going for more than they can handle. Sure, it rewards the long drive into the very narrow alley way between water and bunkers, but it punishes a slight miss more heavily than the reward of being 20 yards closer to th
