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.

    • I’d like to see this evaluation done with the Mevo+. I’d like to know how the horizontal launch angle and spin axis compares to GC4. I do know that for the regular Mevo, the data I get hitting into my net is very similar to what I see in lessons with GC4. Hopefully they get to it at some point. One thing about TXG guys is that I can’t tell how sincere they are - don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the content they create, and watch many of their reviews, but I haven’t ever seen them outright say something sucks, which makes me a touch skeptical of their motives.
    • I thought I heard them say that they'd be doing more launch monitors. I'd guess Mevo will be one of them - if I heard correctly.
    • Day 346 Superspeed workout. Just sticking with protocol 2 until January when the TST superspeed accountability/progress group kicks off. Also did some tempo drills while getting warm for the superspeed stuff. 
    • Day 75 - More swings inside, really focused on the first part of my takeaway.
    • They did do this in an episode, and I believe Mike shot -2, the differential was like 1.9 though. One thing that was brought up to them by a playing partner was it's one thing to carry a 0.0 handicap at a home course, but another thing entirely to do it at a larger group of courses. They said "that makes sense" "good idea" etc., but did not stick to that plan either.
