I don't give out my email address to any site without having some notion of what it is about and whether I want to go there.  If I can't even browse the substance of a site without giving my email address then it isn't a site I will use.

Just sayin'.

Hey there Turtle. Thanks for the feedback. We have been kicking around the idea for people to arrive on the 'deals page' rather than the 'subscriber page'. We'll continue our discussions, but I think its a great suggestion.

What type of deals would you like to see?

Thanks again.  -Ted

I "log in" and my username appears at the top, and I keep getting sent back to the page with the email subscription... even though I've already subscribed.

I'd love to see the deals y'all are offering, but right now I can't really seem to get past the "subscribe" page despite the fact that I've already signed up...?

I can see the "specials" for my area (which is "no area") if I visit this URL (http://shotly.com/deals/everywhere-else-golf-deals/), but if I just visit the site and try to log in, I get what I see above.

I registered about 6-8 hours ago, and was able to see the Daily Deal. I just tried, and was still able to log in.

I'm interested to see what deals pop up everyday.

I'm getting the same thing. I registered, then when I put my login stuff it redirects me to that page. If I put in my email and location (which seems redundant because I just did my username and password) I can see the deals and it tells me I am logged it, but it's kind of annoying to basically have to login twice.

Thanks for the feedback, responding to a few of the people using Internet Explorer 9.  Without getting to technical IE9 by default does not have cookies turned on (part of it's attempt for safer browsing), meaning, our site sets a cookie when you choose a city or first register or subscribe so that after you register or subscribe you are then forwarded to the deals page from then on out.

Because cookies are not on in IE9 you will either have to turn them on to be forwarded to the deal page or go to http://shotly.com/deals/ for now.  We are working with TheSandTrap to forward all traffic to the deals page to ensure you don't have to enter your email to see the deals as we can appreciate what you guys are saying and are in complete agreement.

Going forward we can assure you we are working on a more permanent fix for this as IE9 really is still new and we will be sure to get this 100% fixed for you guys.  I welcome you all to call us (888) 485-5151 ext 700 or 703 if you ever have any questions or problems at all as Ted and myself (Matt) are 100% committed to ensuring the site is easy to use, safe and brings you the best deals on the web.

Thanks to all

Matt

Also, in the meantime while we get this worked out for people on IE9 if you end up on the home page where it is asking for a username and password at the bottom you will see a link that says, skip to the deals.  Hope this helps you guys and we greatly appreciate you bringing this to our attention, it is our absolute goal to make this right for all our subscribers/visitors.

Absolutely :)  Sorry you guys were having to deal with that.  If you run into any other issues please let us know, we appreciate the feedback.

To all, we have fixed the problem.  It was nothing to do with the browser but your city was not being set so it was not setting a cookie.  Long story short it is fixed and you should all be good to go.

On a side note, be assured we will keep your email for the intended purpose only (to send daily deals).  If you ever wish to stop receiving emails you can always click the unsubscribe button from any email (in response to those uncomfortable giving your email out)

Hi Shotly - have just joined, and read your 2005 review of the TaylorMade Dual rescue clubs which I have.  The photos of the clubs show the weights with coloured dots, however mine are either worn out, or never had any.  The centre weight is red, as pictured.  You mentioned they sometimes come shipped with 2 X 8gr weights, I assume that is what I have so there would appear to be no point in trying the adjust the weighting, unless I leave one out all together.  Your comments please?   I would like to set the weights for a draw if possible.

Thanks and regards from Australia

Hey Frank, unfortunately I think that might have been someone else as to my knowledge we have not reviewed the Dual.  Can anyone help Frank here as I am not able to.

    • Also, his drives hardly end up in a hazard or OB. Avoiding stroke and distance is a big thing.  Yea, like he said for par 5's. You need on really good shot to make par. (i think this is close enough). You can hit a bad drive (not OB), maybe thin a hybrid, miss the green, but still get up and down for par.  Also helps he is a really good putter and has a really good short game ;).   
    • Nobody is rewriting history. Renaming a team from an offensive name IS learning from history.
    • …😁 but I did shank one the other day in a tournament to get a bogey. Still shot a 72! Golf is hard, take the good with the bad, but learn to score, not just hit a ball.
    • Why wouldn't you just go to Scotland? You could probably stay around St. Andrews and never have to travel more than hour to play golf for months on end.
    • I had the pleasure to play 5 rounds with @iacas during our Sand Valley trip. 3 on the Sandbox, and then once on Mammoth Dunes and Sand Valley. He is the best player I've ever played with, and it was interesting to notice a few things that were different in our games beyond our golf abilities. Specifically, there were a few course management things I noticed that he did really well that I did not do nearly as well. I wanted to share these things, because I think they are generally good things to think about, and they might help you shave some strokes off your score. I believe all of these are discussed in LSW, but it doesn't hurt to have a refresher. 1. Avoid Doubles This was by far the biggest thing I noticed. @iacas did get in some bad spots on the course, as everybody does. But, every time he got in trouble, he made a bogey at worst. I don't think he made a double while we played together. I made more than my fair share of them, despite driving the ball almost as well as him. I tend to get sloppy when I get myself into trouble and end up with a double bogey instead of a bogey. A bogey doesn't kill your round, and it only takes one good shot to get the stroke back. A double is a lot harder to recover from.  How did he do it? He got himself back in play and gave himself a great chance to hit the green with his next shot. Sometimes, this meant going for the green. Most of the time, this meant getting out of trouble while advancing the ball down the fairway. For me, I need to think more about giving myself a wedge that I feel comfortable getting on the green most of the time when I'm in trouble off the tee instead of always trying to find a way to go for the green. It also means being more crisp around the greens when I'm already in trouble. I tend to check out of a hole if I don't have a par putt, and that leads to a double that really should have been a bogey (or a worse score than a double). Also, if you're in trouble around the green, just get on the green. Forget about the flagstick. Find the shot that will give you a 20 foot putt as your next shot. If the only shot you can try is a risky flop shot to get it close, it is likely to be better to play towards the center of the green than trying that really hard shot. If you're not a good bunker player, forget the flag and concentrate on getting the ball on the green for that 20 foot putt. For higher handicapped players, you can change this advice to avoid triples. But the bottom line is, bogeys aren't bad, even for a plus handicap. Doubles are bad. 2. Give Yourself a Par Putt This is really similar to above, but I wanted to separate it out. You are not a PGA Tour pro. You can live with putting for par. If you are in trouble, your goal should be to give yourself a par putt. Unless you are a really bad putter, you will likely 2 putt and make a bogey. If you are chipping for par, that is not good. If you are putting for par, that's fine. If you follow the advice above, you will likely have a shorter putt that you can make more than you think. Think about this - if you have a 20 foot putt for par, your stroke average will below bogey, because you'll make more than you 3 putt, As an amateur golfer, you can live with that. I separated this out, because this is the matra I need to repeat to myself over and over. A par putt is a good thing! 3. Avoid Shots You Haven't Practiced We played the Sandbox 3 times together, which is a great par 3 course. It encourages you to try different types of shots - high pitches, hitting a bump and run, chipping an iron, even putting from 50 yards. @iacasliked to try all those types of shots. And it was a lot of fun trying some of those myself, and he definitely had fun trying to pull them off. Here's the thing, though. If you're trying to get your lowest score possible, don't hit a bunch of creative shots. Almost without fail, whenever @iacas tried a unique shot, someone else would hit a standard pitch and get it closer to the hole than him. Which makes sense - we work on pitching a lot more than we work on chipping an 8 iron into a slope to bounce the ball onto an upper tier. So, the bottom line is, if you haven't practiced the shot, it's not something you should try when you're playing for a score.  I almost titled this "never hit shots you haven't practiced," but there are going to be times on a golf course when you're going to have to try a shot you haven't practiced. Just don't do it very often. Stick with what you know and have practiced if at all possible.
