evolvr is Coming - Online Swing Analysis

124 posts in this topic

I'm copying a post Dave made elsewhere but putting it in my words instead of his, but here goes:

Dave Wedzik and I are going to be launching a brand new service that we believe is the first/only one of its kind. Within the next week we'll have information and a link on this site which explains "evolvr." Basically we have developed a members-only way for you to upload your swings for analysis by Dave and other Golf Evolution staff. Membership will include four submissions per month that we will then analyze with a return video sent directly to your account.

Members will receive discounts on all schools and lessons taken at our academy in Erie, PA, plus access to a full video library with drills, tips, etc.!

Once ready you will notice that the pricing is set so everyone can afford (starts at only $29/mo. for the full service) to evolve their game with the help of Golf Evolution.

Stay tuned for more, coming soon.

P.S. I think it's U.S. only. Which is to say U.S. credit card only...

It might not be. I don't know. I can't find the information on the site we're using.

You might have to try to sign up just to help us figure it out!

Would certainly be nice if you could pay with international credit cards, or Paypal. Don't see a reason why that should be a problem. A swing is a swing, whether it comes from Tokyo or US of A.

Paypal as mentioned above sounds like a good shout Eric!

Where the swing comes from, as you know, is irrelevant. We aren't charging your golf swing.

PayPal is not an option.

Yes, but only if you pay extra. If you pay only the regular fees, your swings are analyzed by incredibly talented golfers and instructors who know what they're talking about. We haven't set the prices yet to have your swings analyzed by people who can't break 100... what do you think, 20% extra?

Can we also submit video of other than full swing? This is going to be great. Will the return videos be personalized to me and what I should be working on?

Point was that most people outside the US don't have a US credit card.

Hi Zeph - it shouldn't be any problem at all for the international credit cards - looking forward to working with golfers all over the world!!

The yearly plan gives you the chance to upload 52 sets of videos. Even the monthly plan lets you upload four sets of videos per month... so yeah, you can submit videos ranging from your full swing to putting and chipping.

The video you get back is your swing analyzed in V1 Pro software, narrated, and with notes that tell you what to work on and what changes you should see, etc. We aren't sending you canned video like "watch this pre-recorded video" back to you, no way. You get your swing video back with analysis, narration, and notes.

Sounds like a great idea...but each persons videography skills is different, and will affect your ability to analyze the swing effectively. I am sure you guys have this figured out, however. Is it possible to incorporate connecting a camera to a computer with an internet connection and you guys critique the swing in real time via an instant messanger...as instant feedback is helpful. Then you can take the video and do your work with it and send it to the student as well. For people with bad swings, its gonna take more than 4 vids in a month to get the kinks worked out.

We have a guide to help people set up their cameras properly. Beyond that, there's a certain amount of "wiggle room" that really doesn't affect the analysis.

Possible? Sure. Anything's possible. Likely to ever happen? No. That's not really what evolvr is about. Plus a web cam isn't going to take high-speed, decent quality video.

For people with bad swings, its gonna take more than 4 vids in a month to get the kinks worked out.

It takes guys with good swings more than a month to figure things out. Tiger Woods barely changed his swing a few times and has had year-long "slumps" (in his book). We're not claiming to be able to get everyone to scratch in a month. That's why you can subscribe, or pre-pay for a year and get a discount. The yearly price is still less than three one-hour lessons with a reputable instructor.

A bad video only suffers the one who submitted it. They must do what they can with what they get, unless they set a standard which is to be followed. If people can't submit good enough video, too bad for them.

I've seen a lot of videos on this forum, and the general problem is not with the quality of the camera, but rather the arrangement. Cameras lying on the ground, wrong angles, terrible light etc.

Another advantage of something like this is that those who submit videos have a good chance of learning a thing or two. By watching an analysis, you understand better what to look for, making it easier to ingrain in the swing.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?
    • Share a Fact from Your Job
      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

      thanks. I'm doing that so I might do some horse trading.
    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
