Thank you Evolvr!!

8 posts in this topic

The last two days have been the best golfing days of my life.

I mean that seriously. So I want to say, thank you Evolvr!

Sorry for my excitement and exuberance. To be perfectly candid, I can now hit every club in the bag. My irons and swing speed has improved thanks to their expertise.

In my swing thread, I will be posting my shiny new swing. Swinging clubs has never been so easy.

Strange thing is that on the first bucket of balls (two days ago) I had gotten frustrated (the day before I got really frustrated). I was doing the same damn thing over and over again.

I grabbed my blackberry playbook and remembered my wife asked me to look at my Evolvr video again.

And then it clicked: I started hitting shots with distance and accuracy (I do not have the spin thing down yet). So much that I put another 4 buckets of balls downrange to make sure I could repeat what I had learned. Next I tried out my new swing in my garage (you guys know it by now) to make sure it was not a fluke (it wasn't).

Yesterday morning, I went back to the range to verify again that my swing was no fluke. In 16MPH winds, I went to work again. No fluke!!

As Beachcomber said awhile ago in my thread, it takes awhile to reach another level of learning your swing. My goodness, I can actually swing a club somewhat correctly. Now to work on being decisive in my grip.

Again thank you Evolvr, new video is coming tomorrow!!!

Nice, never had a lesson before but this Evolvr "evaluation" seems right up my alley.

Very kind words guys

You've been doing brilliant work with Brian, and I'm proud to be part of such a great team.

If you're not able to get to see a qualified 5SK instructor, I would highly recommend evolvr to start to build the foundation of a repeatable swing.

Just remember.... what we say, is going to often feel COMPLETELY alien to you, and that is GOOD, that means you are building awareness of where your body and club is in space around you (proprioception.) If you can go in front of a mirror and perform BOTH extremes of whatever you are working on, that is truly the art of practicing and will help build a golf swing for the future.

This part resonates with me.

I've found that I can go to the range and bang balls, buckets at a time and not get any 'new' results.  But if I do mirror work, and pay particular attention to my geometries, and really be critical and deliberate in my movements.  Then when I go to the range, my session is that much better.  I've gone through phases in the last year where I spend a lot of time in the mirror... And I just really started to pick up the club again actively over the last two weeks.  And pretty stoked with the things I'm learning just in my mirror work... And attribute the learning - and better swings that I'm making on the course to the mirror work I've been doing.  Not necessarily the range work.  But the mirror work.

If you have a mirror... Who doesn't?!  Then you can work on your swing!!  No excuses guys.  Get with it!!  Hell, you don't even need a club.  Work on your arms/shoudlers/hips - you can see your geometries in the mirror behind you.  And then watch the GOLF BALLS GO BOOOM!!!

For me, I just dont have the time to take a lesson. My time is very finite.

To be candid, Brian really got down to the nuts and bolts of my swing rather easily. It took a couple of times for me click to what he was saying (tons of other folks have pointed it out to me), but once it did WOW!

Its amazing to behold. Today I plan on filming... There is still lots of work to do, but I have taken a SUPER step forward in my progression. Believe me, it feels GOOD!

Have you stuck with Evolvr for the entire summer?  If so, have you reaped the rewards?  Are you still using the service?

In other words, if it isn't too much trouble, can you give us a 90 days in review?

      I'm not disagreeing with you on your other points, but in Super Bowl 12, two players split the award, so it seems they can give the MVP to multiple people, but often don't.  In 49 of 50 Super Bowls held so far, only one person won the MVP, just like in 49 out of 50 the winner(s) of MVP came from the winning team.
    • Putting downhill vs uphill (2x distance of downhill length) poll
      OK, I'm sitting at home twiddling my thumbs today, so why not do the math.  A PGA Tour player in the middle of the pack makes something close enough to 75% of his 5' putts that I'll use that as my sample.  If he has 100 five foot putts that he's going to one putt 75 of them.  Considering my video example above, he's leaving himself another of equal length so for those 25 he misses, he'll also miss 25% of those, which is between 6 and 7.  (Since it's the easier uphill putt, let's call it 6.)  That would be 131 total putts for an average PGA Tour player in Levin's situation above. (For the record, he made his second putt today.) The same PGA Tour player makes 25% of his 10 foot putts.  I would make the argument that a straight uphill 10 footer is almost impossible to three putt, but I'd probably make that argument by saying "he'll make that 99 times out of 100."  So, for that reason, let's say 1 three putt.  Regardless, it's not even really close ... 25 one-putts plus 74 two-putts and 1 three-putt puts our hypothetical pro at 176 putts total in those 100 attempts. I'm no Brain Scientist but, I am pretty sure that 131 is significantly less than 176. Soooooo, I guess I'll go with the shorter putt. Just to humor myself though, I did suggest that I was thinking about longer putts originally, so what happens if I use the same situation but go with 8 and 16 instead of 5 and 10? I don't know the answer because PGAtour.com doesn't have stats for individual distances outside of 10', but I suspect that the results might be similar.

      I have never experienced wind quite as brutal. Carts racing all over the place, I carry so the bag acting as a sail and blowing me backwards. Still, enjoyable all the same?
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I think in the end some people are desperate enough to take a job that might be like $2.50 an hour. Does that make it right to even offer a position at $2.50 because they can? I could easily say that's taking advantage of someones misfortune.  I do think wages at some level should be tied to cost of living for the area. $7.50 has much more buying power in Ohio than in NYC. Maybe tying it inflation as well.  If price of basic good, housing, vehicles, ect... go up by 2-3% a year and minimum wage doesn't. It just means more and more people are losing buying power on things they wouldn't have to worry about. Over a 5 year period they just lost 10% of their buying power. They have to buy 10% less food than before.  I think that issue might be more of the Governments involvement in controlling inflation. Maybe the 3% per year increase has been an unforeseen issue. A lot wages have been tied with a step increase by inflation. Minimum wage hasn't. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      He may have a big ego, but I don't understand how this precludes him from being able to make positive changes. In fact, it is likely to help as he would not want to fail as President. He does not want to let the American people down, he wants to go down in history as one of the greatest Presidents ever. You don't do that by alienating the middle-class, you do that by reviving it.  Trump is not afraid to take on big corporations and the special interests like the Koch brothers. Those guys control more than any of us realize, and it takes someone just as big to take them down. Sanders, etc. will just get crushed by the special interest groups. It takes a lion to fight a lion. We're going to have to get used to his abrasive style, it will come in handy later on.
