Pay a Compliment - What Do You Like about Other Members?

I'll use my initial post in this thread to send out a general thank you to ALL members of TST.  What I like about the members here is that I have been a member since June 2008 (I know, I do not post a lot) and no matter how many times work/life keeps me busy and prevents me from finding the time to visit this great community,  whenever I do have time, the TST community is always here because of the members (and @iacas) and I can just pick up where I left off.

I'll echo @David in FL's sentiment that you guys are like family to me. We may have our disagreements at times, but at the end of the day, you're still stuck with me 😜

Just some random thoughts about some members (not meant to be a comprehensive list, so don't feel bad if I didn't include you):

  • @boogielicious, I like how his sense of humor is in line with mine. Also I'm pretty sure half of my community reputation comes directly from him.
  • @Vinsk is a great guy and not afraid to speak his mind, even if he may be wrong or find himself in a minority position. If I ever get into a fight on the golf course, he's the guy I'm running behind.
  • @David in FL is a great host and person to hang out and have a beer with. Or two. Or three. Shit where'd the time go, I gotta get back to my family.
  • @DaveP043 doesn't post a lot, but when he does, it's usually insightful. I appreciate his perspective.
  • @dennyjones is probably the most welcoming and positive person I have ever "met" on the internet.
  • @nevets88 is always pulling interesting things off the internet to share with everyone and I appreciate his willingness to try new golf courses and share that with me when we play golf together.
  • @iacas always manages to point out an argument or detail that I miss in discussions. It goes without saying that I appreciate the work he puts into this website and the golf knowledge he shares.

Geez, how can I forget @Golfingdad! One of my best TST friends. Haven't seen much from him lately. Where are you man?

Thanks man!  I haven’t been playing golf much for one, and the other reason is I just kind of realized that wasting a bunch of time arguing with strangers on the internet isn’t all that fulfilling.

While I’m on this thread, the thing I admire most about other members are those who can keep from falling into that pit of arguing with others, those who have nothing but nice and helpful things to say, including but not limited to @mvmac, @GolfLug, @jamo, @billchao, @nevets88, @Shindig, and probably the king of kindness himself @DaveP043.

Again, that’s not an exhaustive list, but those are some great guys! 🙂

I have to give some mad props (am I too old to use that phrase?) at @iacas

It's impossible to say how much I appreciate the work he's putting in for the "Covid-19 practice plan challenge..." thread. 

So far the drills have been fun, short, easy to perform, and jive perfectly with what my coach has worked with me on over the years. 

I truly appreciate the daily drills, brother.

I noticed that it's been over 11 years since I joined TST. Time flies. My swing has improved quite a bit thanks to @iacas and @mvmac. I have put 0 effort in over the last few years and it shows.

I want to give a shout out to @David in FL for inviting me to his club. If I was still in Florida, I would probably be a member and get to take money from him on a regular basis. I really enjoyed playing the Ryder Cup style event with @Missouri Swede.

Here's to the Ohio crew: @mcanadiens@Jeremie Boop@saevel25 and others that I've played with.

I always enjoy TST outings. Hopefully when this virus is behind us, we can have a large outing somewhere.

I think it goes without saying, but I'd like to extend a big thank you to @iacas for creating and maintaining this site, and rolling out challenges to get us to really push ourselves to improve.

Also, a big thank you to @mvmac for going topless in swing... er, I mean posting swing videos and content as well.  I've learned a lot by watching his swing videos.

Thank you. I appreciate that you're doing them, along with many others. I like seeing the videos each day. Not every day is going to be a "winner," but I'm going to strive to just get everyone doing 5-10 minutes a day through April. And then… you can repeat them all in May. 🙂

You've gotta add a day 31 for May though, lol

Why? Even God rested on the 7th day.

Lol, I'm not a believer in that kind of thing, but I am a believer that we all deserve some rest. Point taken.

What's the handicap of this God guy?  I'm sure he/she's a + something...

Major props for @iacas. Runs the site, always online, always moderating. Has to deal with all of our nonsense. Can’t really say enough.

@Vinsk‘s posts are my favorite to read.

@phillyk’s swing is fun to watch

I'm going to reitteriate my appreciation for all the work @iacas but into the 30 day COVID-19 practice plan challenge. I feel a little badly that I personally petered out around day 11-12. All of a sudden my life/job/world got really challenging. I still wanted him to know I appreciate it and would like to go through all 30 days whenever the my workload starts getting back to normal.
