2014 Erie/Cleveland/Pittsburgh/Buffalo Summer Get-Together (August 16-17)

552 posts in this topic

Rough Plans: Saturday/Sunday at Whispering Woods and downtown at Golf Evolution, with players arriving at noon or 1pm on Saturday, and with the round commencing Sunday morning so players can get home Sunday evening.

Dates are Official:

August 16/17, 2014

Who is interested? Subscribe to this thread if you are (and post to say hi).


Rough Schedule (I'll update this as necessary):

Saturday, August 16

12pm to 1pm - Arrivals and Putting Matches at Golf Evolution downtown (5 W. 10th St.)

1pm to 4pm - General Goofing Around*

4pm to 8pm - Whispering Woods Mini Outing (???)

8pm to 10pm - Dinner Somewhere

10pm onward - I'm setting up some hotel room deals. I'll have more details soon.

Sunday, August 17

8am to 9:30am - Breakfast Somewhere

10:10am - 11:xx - Tee Times

3pm - Departure for those leaving

4pm - Return to Golf Evolution for some work**

The mini outing will be something interesting. Maybe a one-club alternate shot format, or a straight up scramble, or something so that y'all can see the golf course. Seeing it once before you play is a good thing. :) And if we scrap it because we're having so much fun downtown, so be it.

* "General Goofing Around" includes:

  • $ AimPoint Express lessons (G)
  • $ FlightScope (Y)
  • $ Full swing instruction (X)
  • $ SAM PuttLab measurements/training (Y)
  • $ Pitching analysis/lessons (G)
  • Table tennis matches
  • Putting competitions ($ if you lose)
  • High speed recording of your swings for your My Swing threads

I've marked with a $ those that will cost money. I've marked with an "X" things you should probably definitely not do. Things marked with a "Y" are individual. G is a group (obviously with some individual attention at various stages).

We'll do all we can to keep costs on these down.

** Some students are staying later on Sunday, or into Monday and even Tuesday or Wednesday for continued lessons with Dave, Mike, and I.


Hotel Plans

(Updated 2014-07-09)

So here's the scoop on the hotel plans.

Reservations must be made by calling the Days Inn, with a valid credit card, at 814-868-8521 , before 7/23/14 . After 7/23/14, any rooms not guaranteed with a valid credit card will be released from this contract.

Please reference The Sand Trap Golf Group when calling the hotel to make reservations.

This is for the Days Inn a few miles from the golf course.

Please find your roommate and book your reservations SOON.

You're no farther away than me driving from North East, PA to Ada, OH. :)

Pre-"Tournament" activities will, unfortunately, probably not include a disc golf tournament. :D

True, but you don't have a woman that hates the fact that you golf!

Heck I might be willing to go pick you up. Carpool over. I did the math, it would save me like 40 bucks on gas (if we split) even driving up to Lima. If @CarlSpackler to wants to carpool as well BIG SAVINGS!!!! :dance:

That would be cool with me, though it's not the gas that she has a problem with, it's the fact that I'll be gone for so long. She just loves me so much she can't stand being apart! :loco:

It "might" be possible that I could make the drive out there.

I'm trying to narrow down the dates today. Looking like August 2/3, 9/10, or 16/17.

BTW: August 16/17 is looking like the best dates. My wife is out of town, so it's guilt-free "hanging out, talking golf, and eating wings."

And… we can expect @mvmac to be in the house!

I'm going to "page" a few people who might want to come…

@cipher

@JetFan1983

@bjfox10

@saevel25

@georgep

@EverythingGolf

@Jeremie Boop

@Slice of Life

@Ernest Jones

(I may add to this list too.)

BTW, if you see anyone on the forum from Pittsburgh, Cleveland, or Buffalo (or Erie of course), please let them know to visit this thread. Even Detroit, Toledo, Columbus/Akron/Dayton, etc.

Does this mean I'm going to look even worse than last year? Crap, time to start practicing with a purpose and get my stupid monkey badge or something.

I'm honored to be thought of here :-)

Obviously it's a bit of a hike for me, so no promises, but... I'd love to go if I can...

I'll see what happens. Thanks for giving me enough time to think about this.

    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      On Craigslist around Phoenix we used to see loads of irons in the early part season because people would buy clubs they can't hit *cough* blades *cough*, or just clubs that weren't fitted or they didn't like and then sell them. That's how I got my nikes before they were stolen.   I don't buy into the new distance drivers and such, but the forgiveness is definitely a major improvement. I take my old Wooden Woods to the range every once in a while and not only do misfits cause massive distance loss, they just fly horrible as well. The new stuff is definitely helpful to worse players but if Ben hogan could drive a wooden club over 300 then why is it so impressive to driver a super forgiving driver over 300? idk, just my $0.02
    • Injury Question
      With my insurance I can't afford a MRI.  I got one for my rotator cuff a 2 years ago and my insurance only paid $80 of the bill .  I'm still paying the bill since its either pay off it quickly and struggle with my school loans or pay it off slowly and pump more money into those things I used for school.  Without an MRI, I'm not sure how much help a doctor would be able to give me.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Everyone gets double bogeys. Even the pros. The pros just don't get them often.  We all have blow up holes. Mine tend to come in pairs. Then I'll settle down and hit "the shot." I consider an 8 a blow up hole. It's usually the result of a bad tee shot. Although on a real fast green once it was the result of a four putt.... in a tournament.... when I missed a 1 foot putt. Another thing we tend to do is try to do quick fixes during our rounds. Don't. They don't work. Play with the game you have. Fix your problem at the driving range later. If your driver is in the woods constantly, leave it in the bag for the round, and practice with it on the range. Hit an iron off the tee if you need to keep the ball in play. 
    • Injury Question
      Okay, so this isn't exactly something recent.  In fact its something I did in August, that seems like it just doesn't want to heal completely. The injury in question occurred on my downswing on August 7th, it felt as those I pulled every muscle from underneath my arm pit to the bottom of my ribs.  I gingerly tried a few swings after that and why it was tender I guess endorphins got me through the rest of the round (2 holes).  I probably should have taken a few weeks off to let everything heal after this, but seeing how I had lost 70lbs over the course of 4 months and would go onto lose 130+ lbs by October (mostly through golf) I was kind of blinded by the motivation to keep pushing myself.  I played with severe discomfort for a couple of weeks, and then it kind of faded though it felt tight to make a reaching movement with my left arm. Now months later, the pain is basically gone when it comes to golf, but every now and again if I do some unknown action with my swing I get what feels like popping sensation and the discomfort comes back for that swing.  The tightness when reaching never really went away either.  Most of the time it isn't a problem, its just something that occasionally bothers me and I was wondering if anyone has had something similar?  I'm currently trying to strengthen the muscles around that area to see if responds to what eventually got me over a partially torn rotator cuff.
