TST Promotional T-Shirt Run - Yes or No?

Recommended Posts

Guys,

Based at least partly on the fun posts in this thread , I'm considering starting a "campaign" on teespring.com to sell one or two "thesandtrap.com" promotional shirts.

I imagine both designs will have a fun phrase or saying on the front, and on the back, "thesandtrap.com" with the "sandman" logo.

T-shirts will cost about $18.

Shipping costs are $3.85 for the first shirt + $0.25 per additional shirt, and shipping to Canada and internationally is available.

The questions I have for you guys:

1) Do you want me to set this up?

2) If so, what phrase or design would you like (i.e. what would you actually BUY)?

I'd be in for a TST golf shirt but probably not a t-shirt as my drawers are overflowing with t-shirts that the wife wants me to get rid of. Of course I may change my mind depending on what the final product looks like. I'll keep an eye on the thread though.

I'd be in. Are you looking for an inside joke or something for the front? Like "Dime-Sized Brown Spot" or something.

I'm looking for whatever people would buy, not to make money, just to get a good number of shirts out there (and shirts y'all would wear, even if it's to do yard work around the house).

Agree. A tech running shirt, I'd do......just not a plain cotton t-shirt.

What about some nice nerdy stuff like a diagram of a push draw pattern? Or a sketch of good posture vs bad.? And then have, find out at thesandtrap.com on the back. Bad examples probably, but something anyway that promotes what the site does and how it helps golfers.

Ohh, I might be down for a nerdy push draw diagram.

What about a t-shirt that says "Look boss, D-Plane!"

In other words, there's no consensus on what makes a good shirt yet, so… that doesn't bode well.

Not for me as I do not wear T-shirts. I only wear shirts appropriate for the golf course. That way I am never caught unable to play. ( same reason I only own one pair of jeans).

    • Okay, I'll give it a shot.  What the heck.  If you're a right-handed golfer, starting in your stance have your elbows close together, with the insides of the elbows facing up.  At the top of the back swing, your left wrist should be flat, and your right wrist should be cocked back.   That will help you tuck in your right elbow.  Then when you start down, keep your right elbow tucked in.  Don't flip the club with your right hand.  Keep your right wrist cocked back.  Try to have your elbows close together when you hit the ball.   
    • Played my first round yesterday; shot 153, at least 10 balls lost in the water and in the woods
    • Advanced statistics and analysis in baseball is a lot more prevalent than just the Oakland A's and  the movie, but yea, the book is how the public became aware of it for the most part. Every front office in every major sport uses analysis whether they're public about it or not, most with their own proprietary systems. Judging by your comments, I'm guessing you never studied statistical analysis or forecasting. No, you can't predict the future, but you can make decisions based on trends that are most likely indicative of future performance. It's a lot more effective than simply guessing or "going with your gut." For example, if a guy misses almost every cut in a tournament with bad weather and his next one has rain in the forecast, it's a pretty safe bet he's going to miss the cut. That doesn't mean he definitely will, but his past performance indicates that is the most likely outcome. I watched a program that talked about those daily fantasy gambling sites once and the top winners all use very complicated analysis tools to predict performance of athletes. They got into some really minute details like how an athlete performs under certain weather conditions, start times, etc. They're not just picking guys blind. Zero. Billy Beane himself said the playoffs are based on luck. Baseball has a playoff format that is different than regular season play so you can build a team that can win 100 games but isn't necessarily the strongest for a best-of-five or seven series. Even if it is, you can have a couple of guys hit a slump during the playoffs and lose anyway. The announcers made a big deal in the broadcast about how great Corey Kluber was in the month of September but then he faltered in the playoff series in October against the Yankees. They just assumed he was going to continue to be lights out, but he regressed to the mean. He's still one of the best pitchers in baseball, but if you combine his performances in September and October together, you're going to get a better picture of how he is as a pitcher than if you only evaluate his performance in the arbitrary month of September (or October, for that matter). How did they do before "analytics" was introduced? A poorly managed team is poorly managed, with or without additional stats to help make decisions.
    • That doesn't seem like it's necessarily a good thing- to unexpectedly fly over your target and land on the back of the green.  It doesn't seem like something you'd want to happen.  That seems like a shot you'd want to avoid. 
    • Thanks, Buckeyebowman. Just returning it is a tricky move for me. Getting a flatter backswing sounds good. What are some good ways to achieve this? Swing more around? Anything else? Thx for the help. SG. Hi Bill,   Thx for the comments. Yes, working on my pivot helped. Either moving my shoulder/hips at the same time on the bs or just turn my chest. My ball striking has improved. However, I guess were always looking to improve more.  Agreed, comparing Nicklaus to the average hack wouldn't be a useful comparison. But, it's a common reply when someone brings this topic up. Next is Freddy and Eamonn Darcy, who has taken this to an extreme.   Cheers   SG   StefanUrkel,   On the right hand, would stronger or weaker help? Yes, I am completing my turn. Probably, more like overswinging as the flying elbow allows you to keep going.    SG
