Attention Forum Leaders and Supporters!!! Member Review Information

10 posts in this topic

As you guys know, we started a program called Member Reviews here on The Sand Trap.  Member Review (MR) go first to all available and applicable Supporters and Forum Leaders.

You get free stuff (equipment, training aids, rounds of golf, services, etc.) in exchange for a review published on the product page at http://thesandtrap.com/products/ . MRs are subject to guidelines

The reason for this thread is to make sure you subscribe to the Locker Room Forum so you're updated when we post an opportunity to review a product.  We've gotten great participation so far but we want to make sure the same guys aren't doing all the reviews.

How do you subscribe?  If you're are a Supporter or Forum Leader, go to the link below and select "Subscribe"

I guess this is only for USA residents, but if you want someone from OZ to test or review anything, then look no further

No, it's for Forum Leaders and Supporters... though some people who give things away are only willing to ship to U.S. addresses. That's not our restriction, though.

Excuse the ignorance but how does one become a Forum Leader or Supporter? And what products are you talking about?

I'll let Mike answer the second question, and give more details on the first than I will here, but basically, a Forum Leader is someone we deem to be just that - a forum leader. We typically look at people when they reach around 1000 posts. A Supporter is what I linked to above (post #3 in this thread). Pay $29 or something like that and you get some perks and support the site.

Yes like Erik said,

Forum Leaders typically :

  • Have a good reputation.
  • Have 750+ posts (often closer to 1000).
  • Are currently active (we remove members if they aren't active for a long period, and re-instate if they return).
  • Typically positive and "good guys"

Here are products that have been reviewed so far since.  Not a bad list since starting this program in May/June.

We have a private forum for only Forum Leaders and Supporters where Erik and I will post "roll calls" for reviews.  We'll have more coming out within the next few weeks of the Orange Whip Trainer and Golfflexx trainer.

Oh ok, when I get close keep me in mind. Don't worry I won't go crazy and post 600 in one day just to get my status up, but I love this game and this site. I'm also a member of an Australia site too called ozgolf. This is a great site as the people on there are generally friendly and pretty eager to help anyone

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      No problem.  I'm not tired of responding to sincere and thoughtful posts, like yours, even if it rehashes stuff from before because OF COURSE it is unrealistic to expect people to read 3000 posts before commenting.  In any case I have that quote in a file and it was simple to post it - much simpler and politer than saying "go find it , it's here."  I DO think that one should maybe at least read a smattering of such a big thread before jumping in,   But I have no patience whatsoever with the "I saw Jack play" and "he was nice at a clinic" type posts or posts by people who try to claim some special credibility because of some entirely personal subjective connection.  But that isn't you. As to the rest, you asked for the exact quote and I gave it to you.  If you want to argue with what he said, that is another matter and does not concern me, since my position is that even if we, arguendo, say that the field strengths did NOT get better, Tiger's career was so much more dominant than Jack's that it doesn't matter.  I don't NEED to make a stronger field argument to make the case that Tiger dominated golf in a way and to an extent that no other golfer has ever dominated golf.  And he did it for 15 years (after an absolutely unprecedented career as an amateur) which, IMO, is long enough that it no longevity argument could overcome the sheer dominance advantage his career embodied.   The fact that all that is true in the face of field strength increasing is just icing on the cake.   
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Excellent. Thank you for re-posting that quote. Sorry to hear you're tired of rehashing. Why not just let the thread die then? Is the expectation that folks will read all 272 pages before making a comment? That strikes me as an unrealistic expectation.. I agree the tour is tougher than it used to be. I consider the differences more incremental than astronomical...not the 'order of magnitude' range that seems to come through in some comments. I think Jack is both being accurate in assessing his perception of a shift in quality, but also exaggerating for effect or experiencing present-day myopia at the very least about the money. $100 in 1962 money would be ~ $800 dollars today. Not exactly what I would call bus fare. The 'paltry' $100,000 had the buying power of about $800,000 in today's dollars, which is ~ 60% of today's average purse and ~ 30% of the Players' purse).. Most Americans would happily take an annual salary like that today. They weren't getting ditch digger wages. The prize money even then definitely attracted keen competitive interest. Clearly purses have also grown more than inflation and even journeyman make more in a year than the top 10 in 1962 (below), but it seems about in line with the growth of the population of golfers in the U.S. itself - about triple since Jack's day, Endorsement money has definitely gotten bigger, as the tour and the golf marketplace have developed and expanded over time.   Rank       Player                  1962 $                   2015 $ 1            Arnold Palmer        $81,448                 $639,223 2            Gene Littler           $66,201                 $519,562 3            Jack Nicklaus         $61,869                 $485,563 4            Billy Casper            $61,842                 $485,351 5            Bob Goalby            $46,241                 $362,910 6            Gary Player            $45,838                 $359,748 7            Doug Sanders        $43,340                 $340,143 8            Dave Ragan          $37,327                 $292,951 9            Bobby Nichols       $34,312                 $269,288 10          Phil Rodgers          $32,182                 $252,572

      I've often thought about going with an X flex driver shaft.  I may get an adapter from My Titleist 910 and experiment.
