    Couldn't you just have someone record you while you swing?

    4-5 figures is way more than I would want to fork over.

    If I just kept taking payments by check and PayPal, that would cut down the complexity of the design quite a bit?

    Please keep in mind that I'm a finance guy and a complete web design moron. Thanks for the input so far. Keep em comin'.

    Question for golfers/web designers
    So I've been running this annual Majors pool where each participant picks four golfers per major and total earnings at the end of the year win cash. I anticipate that it will be quite large next year so I want to check into the possibilities of setting up a website to run it.

    Right now, I just track everything manually through Microsoft Excel. People will email their picks to me and I manually have to enter them into the spreadsheet and email the spreadsheet to everyone once all picks are in.

    Do any of you web designers have ideas how I could just run this by a website? I'm expecting my first child this fall and want this to be as hands off as possible.

    Basic functionalities desired:
    1. Participants can submit their golfers through the site (pick from drop downs)
    2. Site can have an Excel spreadsheet linked to track earnings and rankings
    3. Participants can register and pay through website

    Any ideas how much this would cost to set up? I'm not looking for anything fancy. PM or post if you have any ideas.

    Thanks in advance.

    Anyone else think Notah Begay brings a big bag of nothing to the commentary table on the golf Channel? I remember he came on the scene when all of Tiger's issues were breaking. Did they purposely bring him in for Tiger insider info and now they're just stuck with him? Am I the only one?

  7. 12_Over added a post in a topic Scorecard program   

    I keep all my cards on an excel spreadsheet. For each round, for each hole, I break down my score by the clubs I used for that particular hole. I can then see how many times I hit my driver (or any other club) in a round or how many putts I had. In addition, I also mark if I hit a farway or had a GIR. I have a summary tab that summarizes my average score, driving accuracy %, GIR %, average putts per round, average three puts per round, etc.

    This has given me great perspective about where my work needs to be done. My average score right now is around 80 and about 47 of those shots come from my two wedges and my putter. I 'm going to put more emphasis on my short game practice.

    Maybe you can set up something similar.

    You can only use that ticket for one of the four days. Doesn't matter which day.

    I'll be there Friday through Sunday. If this is your first time at Colonial, make sure you hang out at 13. Oh yeah, try to wear dark tinted shades to take in the scenery without getting caught. :)

  10. 12_Over added a post in a topic satisfied with your practice facility?   

    My practice facility is top notch. Lush grass to hit from, Nike balls that look brand new, a huge bent grass green with undulation, lit up for night practive, and two chipping greens. Oh yeah, it's right next door to the Nike Oven. I need to take some pics and post for you guys.

    Shamble format with handicap?
    Played in a shamble tournament on Friday and I'm stil confused how the winning team shot 42 on a par 71 courrse. Yes, 42.

    How is this possible? I thought shambles were more difficult to score than a regular scramble.

    For those not familiar with the format, a shamble starts by the team pickig the best drive but from there, each team member plays out their own ball.

    Can one get more than one stroke per hole if their handicap is high enough?

    Mine were too upright when I got them so I had each iron bent 1-2 degrees flatter. Hitting them much more solidly now.
