Nominate a Stupid Monkey


Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

If you'd like to nominate someone for the Stupid Monkey award , please do so here in this thread.

Include links to posts, videos, etc. that you think help your case for the person in question.

And yes, you can nominate yourself.

If a person is rejected, please wait at least two weeks before nominating them again. If a person makes a post that Mike and I feel deprives them of an already awarded Stupid Monkey badge, we will remove it. Y'all can feel free to point those types of posts out to us as well, though. :-D_Confused.jpg

Oops, sorry wrong thread.

I nominate David in FL .  If I understand the "stupid monkey" approach it is about simplifying your mental approach to the game while playing.  In all our golf swing discussions, where we can get very technical and scientific, David always responds with comments toward simplifying.  An OP will ask a question with 10 points and David will respond with one point to look at.  If an OP is worried about certain aspects of golf, David's comments will tell them to focus on one thing.

I can't dig out a specific example right now, as I am on the way to playing.  If I find one later, I will post it.

Boogie, Mike and I will talk, but my concern is this: the Stupid Monkey award is not really for the instructors, but for those who implement this in their own practice and games (particularly in their practice).

Yes it's someone that is basically doing this http://thesandtrap.com/t/54840/simple-specific-slow-short-and-success-the-five-s-s-of-great-practice

So the video or pics would illustrate the golfer practicing properly.  Not just full speed swings saying they tried out a new feel or swing thought that day.

It would be cool to have some kind of "cyber" bulletin board where we can see a list of everyone who is a stupid monkey.

Was cool to see G-Daddy got one! Way to go big guy! I know Jamo got one, but who else?

I'm trying hard to be stupider, LOL, but I know I gotta be stupider-ier.

And, honestly, this is my favorite 'honor' I've ever received here!  Not sure exactly why I got it or who gave it to me, put I'll take it and wear it proudly!!!

I would like to nominate Cipher for this award based on a couple of recent comments in his swing thread ...

"The driver thought seems to be working. Don't know why don't really care as long as it works. The face is squaring up sooner."

and

"Like I said I don't really know why it "might" be squaring up the club face better for me. Well, I think I do actually know, I just don't want to think about all that right now, I just want to feel it."

Here are the links:

I thought the Stupid Monkey award was on hiatus, but that was one of the others (Experimenter, I think). It's still available. I added it to @Stretch today as well.

    • @DaveP043 is pretty knowledgeable with this stuff.
    • Has anyone played this format? It's kind of like a Stableford in that it has points for eagles, birdies, pars, etc., but it's different. For an explanation click here. In our league we normally play weekly individual stroke play contests with handicaps but the thought was it would be a fun mid-season break to have some sort of team competition as well so I'm trying to set up something like this for next year. The question I have though is how should we handle things if the number of guys who want to play is not divisible by four and we end up with one or more threesomes? Someone suggested that it shouldn't matter since it's each individual player's handicap that determines the team handicap which is what is used to set the team's quota. I'm thinking there would need to be some sort of reduction to the threesome's team quota that would have to be factored in or else they would be at a disadvantage.  Does anyone have experience with team tournaments with a mix of threesomes and foursomes?          
    • This is an absolutely horrible take. That is not anywhere close to the best way to determine the best team in college football. All that does is rewards schools for playing in weak conferences. Not all conferences are equal. The top team in multiple conferences is often worse than the 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th best team in other conferences. There are at least 6-7+ teams in both the Big Ten and the SEC alone that would be favored heavily over whoever the conference champ is from the Mountain West, the MAC, etc. Based on your logic, one of each of the two teams like SDSU/Utah State in the Mountain West, Kent State/Northern Illinois in the MAC, and Appalachian State/Coastal Carolina in the Sun Belt would be in the playoff, and with only 1 at large bid for a non-conference champ, that means a number of very good football teams would be left out of the playoffs entirely including potential teams like Alabama, OSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, Penn State, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State.  Please explain why a team like Utah State, Kent State, or Appalachian State would deserve to be in the playoff over any of those schools I just listed. Simply "Winning your conference championship" is not enough for me, not when there is such disparity between conferences.  How does your method prove who the best team in college football is for a given season?
    • Awesome, @Shindig. For those interested, I'm likely closing this out at the end of the month.

    • I don't believe them at all. It's a stain on all of them, and particularly Kane/Toews, etc. One could forgive them for what they did 11 years ago if they show true signs of attrition and regret and growth, but now they're just liars.
