Hi Guys,

Pretty simple here, in this thread make a post nominating a member of The Sand Trap for a month of free "in-depth" online lessons with both/either Erik ( @iacas ) and/or myself ( @mvmac ). The nominations are open for the entire month of May and the member that is selected with receive the lessons during the month of June. We're planning to have this go for at least a year (six lesson months, six nomination months) so if your guy doesn't get picked there is always next time.

The online lessons will take place in a thread dedicated to them (or perhaps the winner's "My Swing" thread), and will contain a mixture of video and photos.

One nomination per member. You can nominate yourself, someone who might not be able to afford quality instruction or someone who you feel is a solid member and would benefit from working with Erik and I.

When you post make sure to tag the member using the @ symbol. If you're on a mobile device, make sure you click the button to actually use the @ symbol to link to the person.

Also thanks to @cipher for prompting this idea.

@colin007

I know he started a swing thread but it went dormant pretty quickly.

Or @nevets88 .  He always posts interesting stuff.  He has a Member Swing thread and has been to Golf Evolution, but may not use Evolvr.

I could be wrong, but I think @nevets88 is already an Evolvr student. I'm assuming the idea here is to create new students?

Would the free online instruction be a part of a My Swing thread?  I would hope so.  It would be very interesting.

Yes I'm pretty sure we'll make all the videos and stuff available for everyone to see.

That's a good idea.  Sort of make the "price" of the free lessons a diary that we can all follow along with.

Can we nominate more than one person?  If so, I'd like to throw @newtogolf 's hat into the ring, along with @jefkve .  I don't think either of them has done Evolvr before, so I'd like to see what you guys can do for each of them. :beer:

Kind of like Haneys teaching show.  Should be very interesting depending on the student.

As of right now it's one nomination per member, I'll add that to the OP.

A few nominations off the top of my head, in no particular order:

@Crim seems like a decent enough fellow, is a supporter, but not an evolvr student. He seems like he'd listen. He always seems happy when we help him out on his swing thread.

@14ledo81 also seems like a decent guy.

I'd say @Fourputt but I know he rarely plays these days. And if he has a camera, which I doubt, it's probably one of those that you have to crank :-P JK.

@RFKFREAK might listen to you guys.

It's hard to nominate people because I'm not sure which regulars interested in lessons aren't already in the program.

I feel like @Hammer 4 is already getting lessons. So he's out.

I'm not sure how interested they'd be but the following guys would make good candidates if they wanted to be:

@newtogolf , @bplewis24 , @RonTheSavage , @scopek , @meenman , @inthehole .... I'm not sure if @k-troop would be interested. I'm trying to think of a long time member who may be interested....

This is tough. OK, I've said too many names.

@billchao perhaps? I wish I had a comprehensive list here to work with :-D

In other sad news, I've wasted ^^^ this much brain space remembering some of your internet handles. :doh:

Oops. Obviously I didn't read this before finalizing my previous post. Let me rethink this for a second.

I nominate @billchao .

He seems like a good guy, and I seem to remember (apologize if wrong) that he mentioned something about it not being in his budget right now.

OK, then in that case I'll go with @newtogolf ... since I know that Jeff has a set of 5SK DVD's and he's close to you, so it's going to be easier for him to get personal lessons if he wants. :beer:

    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      Here's some more below about the lowest you might expect - even on an easy course. I think this is largely true, but pros don't tend to play a lot on 'easy' courses so there doesn't seem to be even much anecdotal stuff. The quote below describes what's considered the 'perfect round'. I guess you could also consider a 'go-for-green' perfect round where you also hit all the par 5's in two and one-putted those for eagle for a 'go-for-green perfect' score of 50. Obviously the likelihood of doing this in a single round defies the essence of golf, but it's a good a hard theoretical lower limit that probably depends more on the par than the course rating. Likely the odds grow exponentially as the percentage of birdied / eagled holes rises. I think we can discount albatrosses as a 'perfect round' option. Most tournament pro scores don't get below 56 and 59 with about an 80/20 rule separating the more frequent 59s from the 58's. That's 4-5 strokes (assuming par 72) over the 'perfect round' and 8-9 over the 'go-for-green perfect round', each of which represent grabbing about 75% and 61% respectively of the potential shots under par realistically available. I suppose a short par-4 would add another potential eagle opportunity, but we'll discount that as I'm not sure how universal they are. The lowest tournament round was 55 (par of 71) by one single golfer out of how many total tournament rounds by pros and plus HCP amateurs over the years? So while 55 is humanly achievable it's super rare and likely represents the lower limit of any possible likelihood. That would put the absolute lowest threshold around 17.8 below the course rating (72.8) and 16 below par. So there's a lot of room to go below even a low course rating or par of 70. I don't think the expected scores would get too squished and the distribution would still likely be normal in shape. The thing that is probably unrealistic is how narrow the range of expected scores is. The field is extremely consistent, but I think a single individual player (whose average score is the same as the field) will have a score variance significantly larger than the field. I think the mode likely stays the same while the distribution flattens / spreads out more into the tails with a little more probability to both go low and high and less certainty of shooting within a stroke or two of the mode / most likely score.  
    • Difference in These Putters Besides Price?
      My mind is made up, don't confuse me with facts! Someone beat me to it, but there are obvious differences in the appearance of those two putters. The most obvious is that the alignment marks don't align! And the mark on the instep (if that's what it's called), looks like it was hacked in with a machete or maybe a cold chisel. Never mind that it looked like it laid in a barn for 10 years! Hey, I'm a senior and retired, so I'm always on the lookout for a bargain, but I refuse to buy cheap crap just because it's cheap. I remember a radio show I heard years ago where the discussion was about value vs cost. A woman called in and said she didn't have a lot of money, so she couldn't afford to buy "cheap". The host asked her what she meant. She replied that buying cheap stuff that does not perform and wears out early is more expensive in the long run than buying top quality goods that do the job and will last! Admittedly, they weren't talking golf equipment here, but the idea is the same.
