If you enjoy TST, I'd like to put my hat out in a manner of speaking and ask you to consider a small donation to help keep the site running.

Golf is an expensive sport to play, and to learn, and I'm an instructor. I've given away a LOT of information here, helped out hundreds of people, thousands of people, and if even a small percentage of those people feel that their experiences, the information they gain, etc. here on TST is worth a small donation, we'll all benefit more.

There are two "supporter" options:

https://thesandtrap.com/subscriptions/ - There are two Supporter subscriptions. The wording is a bit confusing, but they're monthly and yearly. The monthly option is $4.99 the first month and $3.99 each month after that, while the yearly one is $36 for the first year, and $27 each year afterward.

https://thesandtrap.com/store/product/1-one-year-supporter-membership/ - A manually renewing option is available for those who don't like auto-renewals at $36/year. (Note: Forum Leaders pay only $29 for this Supporter plan.)

With any of these plans, you'll become a "Supporter," which has extra privileges on the site:

  • You have longer to edit your posts.
  • You have more PM storage space.
  • You will see no top (banner) or side (skyscraper) ads at the top of the page.
  • You get access to the "Locker Room" private forum.
  • You're helped a bit more in Member Swing topics. 😉

We have a number of Supporters already, so please consider joining them in support of TST.

P.S. If you don't wish to support TST in this way, and you run an ad block application, please consider disabling it. We offer a LOT of information available for free, as well as allowing you to use the forum. We hope you enjoy it, and appreciate that the relatively minimal advertising for even non-donating members helps to pay the bills, and is a necessary thing. I've resisted for a LONG time adding intrusive ads, video ads, etc. If you don't wish to become a Supporter, please contribute to the site by allowing it to show you some relevant ads. I promise that they'll always be refined and that I keep them to a minimum.

P.P.S. If we get enough new Supporters, I'll randomly draw some names from a hat - the same hat I'm holding out right now 😄 - and mail some small gifts out or something.

I'm in. 

Just became a supporter. I'm expecting the good Karma to get me a hole in one the next round I play... or at least a chip in or something. 

Would you settle for a potato chip?

Thank you!

Thank you, too, to @saevel25… who may have already been a Supporter from when the site switched platforms. 😄

Denny said it: It truly is a small donation when compared to what I receive. Best, -Marv

Done, this is one of the main community and sources of golf for me. I have learned a lots since joining the site. 

Hope this will help the site and the community stronger.

Awesome. Thank you all very much. I appreciate it more than you know, and hope to deliver far more than the value to you in the next year as well.

    • Thanks Bill. It's interesting that you consider the DG to be a low trajectory shaft. It makes me think that the fitter really didn't care enough to try to increase my apex to attempt to accommodate my low spin rate. He didn't take any measurement for club length either, so I'm apparently standard everything, but stiffer shaft to accommodate my swing speed.   To be fair, the fitter did say exactly that - they will adjust the lie angle if it doesn't work for me, but like I said in another reply, how would I ever know if it is not working for me if I don't have a basis for comparison with other lie angles? I also have fairly short legs, yet bizarrely a 35.5" wrist to floor measurement - which puts me at 2 degrees upright, according to Ping... Hence my concern that I'm just "standard" everything.
    • What shaft is your friend using?  Maybe a good place to start is that shaft profile.  From there, you have a pretty nice budget to get whatever irons you want.
    • @Nick-uk Just a thought, you can always get your lie adjusted (whether you do it now or later).  It’s pretty simple to have done down the road.  I had mine adjusted 1 degree upright after the fact. FWIW… We’re similar height, similar distance with the 7i.  I’ve been playing the DG S300 and S400 for as long as I’ve been playing, and very happy with them.  I did try different shafts once, ran back to the DG.  I can only assume the DG product life has existed for a long time for a reason. Also, unless someone is quite short or tall, most people will be fine with a “standard” fit.
    • Unless I’m working off of outdated information, the standard Dynamic Gold shafts haven’t really changed much in decades. They’re known to be low launch and high spin, kind of the preferred trajectory of yesteryear. Again, spin rate alone is not enough information, but low spin rate + low apex height suggests an issue to me. It could just be your swing, but it’s also possible that shaft doesn’t fit you anyway. Just for reference I’m a “low spin” ball striker myself, but my 7i averages 5900 rpm, not 4000. My average apex height is 95’ though. I play KBS Tours. I was fitted out of DG S300 years ago. They don’t work for me.
