Honestly I am about join Evolvr, and gracelessly give my vote to @Jakester23  I am sure I will not only enjoy seeing his progress, but learn from the great advice as well.  

 

@mvmac as soon as I get a couple of trips done that are coming up in the next 4 weeks, you will see me on Evolvr

 

I also want to say how grateful I am at even being considered ... when I first join TST my HC was 23.8 ... today it is 18.5 ... there is a lot to  learn here if you look for it and listen.     

 

Good luck to @Jakester23,and congratulations!!! 


Is this a speech like in the movie Mooseport? ;-)

@Jakester23 I believe your dream implied that you would like to see your ball flying down the middle of the fairway with mine at Erin hills. The quandary is that I find your dream may be a fallacy coming from the REM cycle. If you hit your ball down the middle, you will be alone, because I will be 150-200 yards off the tee in the left rough.





...enjoy the lessons bud. ;)

Looks like I missed out on the nominations!  Oh well, good luck to both nominees and I hope you get a lot out of it.  I can honestly say that it did help me a lot, but unfortunately I can't follow through with it due to an upcoming knee surgery (non golf related).  But as soon as I'm able I plan on getting back to what was taught and putting up more videos to show real progress.  

 

A word of advice is to make use of the mirror at home before going to the course.  Having the video camera is great, but you can spend an hour doing something the wrong way and you won't know until you get home to view the video or get the feedback from posting the video.

 

Also, upload all the videos to youtube and create a playlist so that you can reference and note your progress chronologically.  I think it will pay off when attempting to revisit the lessons later or after time away from practicing (like when I start over again after I'm cleared).

 

Last but not least, I don't think I ever formally thanked Eric and Mike for their time and contribution with this, so thank you both!  I really appreciated it.

@Jakester23 in a runaway! Even though I nominated @isukgolf, I'm throwing my vote Jakester's way as he is more than deserving himself. Looking forward to seeing your August lessons/analysis/practice!

I nominate myself as well! Honestly, I could use it. When I strike it well it's great...bad thing is, that's way less that 50% of the time. C'mon I'm 23 and I'll be loving this game till my time on earth is done!!

Thanks for the nomination  @JetFan1983 , but I conceded to @Jakester23 a couple of days ago ... I agree with you that he is more than deserving!  

 

Again thanks for the nomination as I really do appreciate it!  

 

I will be joining Evolver when I get off this golf trip next week.

Yep, I remember. I shot you a thumb for volunteering yourself out of the competition. Your day in the sun will come! :beer:
