Help me help my game! Youtube Mini-Series

26 posts in this topic

The Twin Cities area is doing a Skills Challenge Youtube Reality Golf Show to see how much a "Hack" can improve in 12 weeks.

http://twincitiesgolf.com/hacktojack/

I sent in a video to get on the show but need some help with votes. If I get on obviously I'll post the show here when it's available.

You can find my video in here.

As much as I'd love to move south during these ridiculous winters....I think I'd miss Minneapolis/St. Paul too much. The culture/art is fantastic.

Thanks again! $20 editing program hah!

Very Nice!  I would go south at a moments notice though myself.

Maybe, but they don't have BRATWURST!

Ha ha, they don't have bratwursts that are as good anyway.  Guilty food is better here in Mil, but nothing beats the MN State Fair.  Fine dining is better in Minni as well.    Golf...I will have to go with Milwaukee.  I was amazed four years ago when I moved here at the quality and character of courses here.

I voted. Tough sledding against the girl, but you've gotta get on The Facebook and help your own cause, too, man.

I've done a little to help here: https://www.facebook.com/thesandtrapgolf/posts/10151932610114227 . I'll tweet this thread out soon as well.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Every customer is different, some know exactly what they want and expect you to execute their vision.  Others want more consultation and input from the designers as to what others are doing or what trends are on the rise.  Another factor is maintenance, how much time is required to keep the site updated, can the business maintain the site on their own or must that be outsourced, etc. There are numerous reasons why a business would redesign their site, such as; The business has undergone some fundamental changes that they want reflected in a new website The cost of maintaining the current site is too high The provider of their data has changed the feeds or discontinued certain elements of the data. Users have complained about how the site works The site is outdated or dependent on outdated technology or servers. They want a site that is "responsive" meaning the same site works on desktop, tablet and smart phones. I've never done work for a business that said they want to make their site worse, less user friendly, less functional or more frustrating for their customers to use.  My guess is that given the popularity of sites like GolfNow, that some standards were created for how the data would be distributed and updated to the GolfNow like websites from the different courses to make it easier for them all to get the data (the same thing happened to the airline industry).  The change to the backend likely warranted the changing of the front end as well. In some cases compromises must be made.  I've redesigned sites that were written in HTML, PHP and jQuery which are not easy for end users to maintain and update themselves.  The client wanted a responsive site that they could maintain easily on their own.  I suggested we develop the new site using Joomla, Drupel or WordPress as those platforms provided them with everything they requested.  They ultimately ended up with a WordPress site that was responsive and very functional but because of the platform certain nuances of the old site were lost. Users initially complained but we worked out some issues and over time they appreciated the more frequent updates and ability to easily view the site on their iPads and cell phones.  Website redesign like life is full of compromises.
    • Shorts On the PGA Tour (Updated 2013, 2016)
      I don't think the PGA Tour's stance on this has only to do with "tradition." Ultimately the PGA Tour is a member-run organization. If they strongly wished for shorts, they'd vote to allow it. That they've not done so speaks volumes, IMO.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I heard something on the radio along the lines of New Hampshire having "super delegates" that will vote for Clinton regardless of yesterday's vote.  As far as Trump goes, my bottom line  is that he simply is not electable. Moderates, women and minorities aren't going to vote for that guy.    
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Just to clarify, I consider myself a committed Trump supporter, I like him. I am not a conservative in the traditional sense. Like anyone, I don't agree with every position that my candidate stands for, I do, however, agree on his main points re: immigration. 
    • Putting downhill vs uphill (2x distance of downhill length) poll
      Yep.  The first hole at TPC looks like they buried an elephant.  I lost a playing partner on that green. The course in the above posts I believe is The Bayou Club.  Checking tonight.  Not sure the hole number yet, but the green is next to the road.  If that's the course, I'll work out the hole number.  Their scorecards don't show hole layout, so I'll have to walk through the holes on the card. BTW, there is (or was) a hole at the Corry Pa muni (North Hills) that could have a 225 foot putt.  That's over 70 yards!  They don't make like that any more! Plus, the Links of Lake Bernadette has a shared green.  Haven't played there in a while, but as I recall the green was "U" shaped with bushes in the "U".  Had to putt to the bottom of the "U", then back on the other side.  Need to Google that later. St Andrews has shared greens but I don't recall any being like that.
