2020 Yearly Member Awards - Congrats to All Winners!


Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

Hey, it's almost a month earlier than we did this last year!


Kickstarter of the Year

We sometimes don't give out these awards, because often the major championship topics rank at the top (that happened this year too), sometimes long-running topics like "5 Minutes Daily" or "What'd You Shoot Today" are at the top. And sometimes they're just an easy win, like the "Tiger Catch-All Topic."

But this past year we dealt with a pandemic, and are still dealing with it, and we also saw some interesting developments from within the golf world. So, without further ado, our Gold, Silver, and Bronze medalists in the Kickstarter of the Year, the people who started some of the busiest topics of the year, are:

KOTY #3: TST's Bronze Kickstarter of the Year is…

@Piz for asking what we were all doing now given the quarantine earlier in the year.

KOTY #2: TST's Silver Kickstarter of the Year is…

@ShawnSum wondered just what in the heck Bryson was doing, and a lot of other people wanted to talk about him as well!

KOTY #1: TST's Gold Kickstarter of the Year is…

@dennyjones asked whether COVID-19 was affecting your golf.

 

 

 


Rookie of the Year

These members joined the site within the last month of 2019 or any time in 2020 and amassed the most reputation points while remaining in good standing throughout the year (only points earned in 2020 count). Just as you'd expect, of course! These members have a bright future ahead of themselves!

Note: winning Rookie of the Year does not preclude you from also winning Member of the Year awards. It'd be like a rookie in a major sport also winning the MVP - it can happen. It just didn't happen this year… 😄

ROTY #3: TST's Bronze Rookie of the Year is…

With 32 reputation points in 175 posts (a 0.183 ratio), and after joining on Christmas Day, 2019, @Sandy Lie!

ROTY #2: TST's Silver Rookie of the Year is…

Joining on June 22, 2020 and earning 37 reputation points in 100 posts (0.370), we haven't seen him in awhile but hope he will return, let's congratulate @ShaftFarmer!!

ROTY #1: TST's Gold Rookie of the Year is…

Racking up 56 reputation votes in total, this member joined May 15, 2020 and racked up a winning total in only 276 posts (0.203)! Let's congratulate @StuM on his Rookie of the Year award!!

Congratulations!

Now, it's on to the big one. The one we've all been waiting for. The…


Member of the Year

These members are the best of the best. They amassed the most reputation points during the calendar year 2020, and remained in good standing throughout the year. Their peers - you guys and gals - felt their posts were worthy of the most thanks, skins, fist bumps, high fives, or reputation, whatever you want to call it. These are the elite. The people who make insightful posts that help further the discussion… even if you disagree with them occasionally. Or frequently.

Reminder: staff (me, @nevets88, @billchao@boogielicious, @phillyk, @DaveP043, @woodzie264, @georgep, and @TN94z — in no particular order) are ineligible for yearly awards, or we would have taken home some hardware here. But, moderating you fine folks is prize enough, and we thank you for your contributions to our community here! Without further ado…

MOTY #3: TST's Bronze Member of the Year is…

After joining on August 21, 2018, and making 1,950 posts, roughly one third of which include the phrases "white belt" or "ice cream [truck|man]", this member works hard on his swing when he works on it, and the rest of the time dreams of the days since he was able to wear a white belt. Having long surpassed his "rule of 35" in both of the ways, he amassed 346 points in 2020. Our bronze Member of the Year for 2020 is… @ChetlovesMer!

MOTY #2: TST's Silver Member of the Year is…

This member made a new year's resolution a few years ago and has stuck to it ever since, unlike literally everyone else in the world. His new year's resolution was to post witty rejoinders and join us in making merriment. He joined on January 1, 2017 and has made 2,958 posts since then. In 2020, he amassed 414 reputation points. For 2020, the silver Member of the Year is… @Double Mocha Man!

MOTY #1: TST's Gold Member of the Year is…

When this member isn't busy dealing with the health crisis, injuring himself on skateboards or bicycles or something, or dealing with the health crisis in his own game known as Accute Hosilitis, he's amassing 502 reputation points in 2020! With a current content count of 6,809 posts since joining on March 24, 2014… He's the… uhhhhh… Dustin Johnson (?) of TST for 2020, the cream of the crop once again, and a repeat gold medal MOTY winner… @Vinsk!

In my best Elvis voice:  Thank you, thank you, thank you very much.  Don't step on my blue suede golf shoes.

What?!  No "Buh-Bye" awards?  I am always fascinated by those folks pushing the envelope for the "This is Where we Draw the Line" award.

I most definitely would like to thank the committee for all their hard work and for appreciating all the winners. I would like to give a special thanks to Scott ( @boogielicious) for always providing me early morning posts to read and to @dennyjones for being so quick to welcome new members.

I’ve tested 36 people today and luckily only had one positive ( COVID-19). I wish there was a rapid test for shanks.😲

Anyway, I love this site and am so glad to be a member here. I hope I can inspire, irritate, humor and confuse members for another year. Thank you all...( music playing...)

Unfortunately, they haven't developed a vaccine for the latter disease.

Thanks, at my age I figured Rookie of the Year awards were behind me.  Too bad it was not for my golf acumen.

Like you need more proof that you're infected.

They had. But Ian Poulter took them all for himself. He ruined them all, though, by not refrigerating them properly.

    • I've been Playing Golf for: 15 yrs My current handicap index or average score is: 15.6 My typical ball flight is: medium The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice Videos:  https://youtu.be/eRtUwS51ouo https://youtu.be/8P_WTt72owI
    • I don't understand how the spectacle has come to an end. He's cutting to get rid of some excessive fat, but wish to retain the strength. If anything, he will go from a little pudgy look to a more defined look. And that doesn't mean he's stopping the training. The spectacle is not that Bryson has gained weight, it's that he's become stronger and is hitting the ball a mile, which he will continue to do. It's quite normal for someone who has gained weight from strength training to accumulate some extra fat and cut at some point to get rid of it.  
    • Day 15.  After work, hit 8- and 6-iron shots for ten minutes (and about as many balls).  Indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls. 
    • I'll keep that in mind, my Snells are also made in Massachusetts. But mine listened to me yesterday, sometimes.  I got fed up with a bad shot and it wasn't listening, so I told it to keep hooking and roll into the rough.  And it did! 
    • Their shipping charges are out of this world...I was going to order a 0211 wedge and shipping was $30.00..After deciding to get a lob wedge to match, the shipping changed tp $60.00 I just refuse to do that.... I can get a real good price on the 0211 driver
