Quick Questions Regarding Evolvr

  • What's the minimum camera quality will you guys consider watching? The rear camera for my phone is 2MP and the front camera is 0.3 MP.
  • I only have one camera and a tripod, so I can't record the side and behind at the same time. Is that OK?

Use the 2MP camera and just record separate swings. Everyone does. No need to record the same swing - your swing is pretty much the same every time.

I just use my iPhone. There are adapters for tripods. Others just mount their phone or camera on their bag. Bag height is good because it’s hand height.

In a practice session, I will set up either face on or down the line and check camera angles. DTL I will lay a club along my toe line and aim the camera there. Then I film that side. I will do driver and 6 or 7 iron and maybe wedges. Then switch to the other view and repeat. It takes a little practice, but once you’ve done it a few times, it’s easy.

Try not to fuss about getting a perfect swing. Ones that feel good or bad actually look pretty similar. You want your Evolvr instructor to see what you have. I will set up, but not film until I’m warm and ready to film the drill or swing.

Lastly, trim the video down. I post it to YouTube and just put the link in Evolvr. You don’t have to worry about file size that way. I post as unlisted and full HD.

  • If I have more questions regarding things that are outside my swing, is it best to post them on TST or Evolvr? I want to make sure that I go to the appropriate site for help just like the difference between going to a doctor and a hospital. For example: I want to know the difference between a flop shot and a pitch shot but going online there isn't one agreed definition.
  • If I decide to cancel and I change my mind a few months later, do I have to follow the payment method again ($59 for first month and $49 for the month after that)?

Post general questions like that here.

Yes, you’d have to enroll again.

  • Give me a rough estimate of how many videos you get per month and how many people are currently in your program.
  • I've never taken lessons from a PGA pro before so this will be my very first if I sign up. Should I expect every practice session, after I get feedback from one of the pros, to have incremental improvement? You'd never know if you get a lesson and after, for example, two weeks I'm not seeing that improvement I wanted.
  • How often should I send the videos per week?

  • I decline. That's our private business information.
  • I can't say because I don't know what you're going to work on or how well you practice.
  • You can't send "videos per week" (as in plural). You're limited to four four submissions (a submission can have more than one video) per month. Many members don't use anywhere close to that.

The best approach is to send in a full swing video, face on and down-the-line, and in detail explain what your misses are. Example: my mid iron shots tend to over draw and I sometimes hit them heavy. The Evolvr instructor will send back an analysis and identify a priority piece for you to work on. I sometimes respond asking a question about the drill or piece. I then work on the piece for at least a couple of weeks. If the instructor asks me to send back a video of the drill, I do that. But I don’t send in another full swing of that iron swing until I feel I’ve made progress.

I may send in another video of a different swing like driver, short game, sand, partial wedges, even putting. But I won’t keep sending the same swing unless I see improvement or am really struggling.

I’ve averaged about two videos a month. Don’t put pressure on yourself to send in as many videos as you can. Some changes take time.

As @iacas suggested, work on practicing correctly. Film your drills to see if you are doing them right. Post the drills in your My Swing thread and we can help. Learning how to practice is almost as challenging as learning how to play.

    • Day 347 Did rehearsal backswing practice in patio door mirror. Then did some tempo drills with 7-iron hitting balls at about what felt like 75% speed. 
    • Day 2 Week 5 Worked on 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 irons. Focus on that 3/4 swing and correct grip.  Finished up the session with my Driver 
    • I play local sports podcasts on a Bluetooth speaker in my cart, but only when playing by myself (which I usually do) or with my family for whom I know it doesn’t bother.
    • Weird Science, bogey. This movie is just dumb, and only nostalgia keeps this from being a double or worse. Additionally, the fact that it's like 80 minutes helps. At least it's over quickly.
    • I enjoy posting these and going back through the thread and reading my old thoughts on my round. Also happy I was able to play today even though the temperature was around 42 degrees. The theme of my round was greens. More specifically missed greens. Front wasn’t awful. Hit 5 greens. Hit a SW to tap in range at 9 for a birdie and played the front at +3. I did miss at the 3rd with a gap wedge. Missed at 6 with a 9 iron. Back 9 was a mess. I hit one green. My really bad misses were at 10 with a gap wedge, 12 with a U wedge, 14 and 16 both with SW in hand and to compete the side I dunked a 9 iron in the drink at 18. All I had to do was par the 18th to stay under 80. And I made double for 81. Actually drove the ball well. Funny I shot 2 under a few weeks ago while hitting 3 fairways all day. Today I hit 7 fairways and couldn’t break 80. Hope this isn’t my last round for the year. Like to end on a better day.
