If you are missing an achievement, please let me know. Currently, achievements are:

  • Hole in One
  • Broke 100
  • Broke 90
  • Broke 80
  • Broke Par
  • Tournament Winner
  • Lowest Score Wins (technically an "Award")
  • Stupid Monkey (ditto)

A full list of achievements is always available at http://thesandtrap.com/awards/ . I'll update this list when we ever add achievements.

Note: you don't get all the "Broke" achievements if you broke par. Just pick the best one you've achieved. Then try to earn the next best one!

For the Tournament Winner achievement, you determine the level of tournament that you believe qualifies. If you want the achievement, please give me some details so I can note it in the accomplishment: the name of the tournament, the dates (or year, or month), etc. If you've won multiple tournaments, pick one.


BTW, the "Achievements" are supposed to show up in the "post bit" or "info pane" (where your avatar, etc. is). We've customized them here a bit, but I'm going to work with the developer who did that work to see if he can make it work with the iAwards add-on.  I've moved Awards and Achievements both to the bottom. They fit, so why not? Also, "Challenges" are in the sidebar under your avatar/username/etc. award1.jpg

How does the LSW one work?  If we have bought and read it?  My wife purchased it by request for me for Christmas.  I have read most of it.  :)

I gave you the first two. Haven't seen evidence of the last one yet. :-)

I broke par twice last summer and had my first hole in 1 on 30 Dec!

I also own and have read LSW. In fact I read LSW last winter so perhaps this contributed to breaking par and hole in one?

I broke 90.  Hoping I will replace it with "broke 80" sometime this year.

Done. You already had the Hole in One achievement. For a few days you were the only one.

Look at your profile page… everyone's awards are listed on their own profile page.

Thanks!!! May sound silly to some, but I have few sports accolades so to have two in golf for the whole world to see is kinda cool. Lol. :)

Do the rewards take time to appear?

No. They appear instantly. And they're awards. :-)

    • Caveat: I’m no doctor and this isn’t medical advice.  I’m dealing with C5-C6 disc herniation here since April. MRI also showed mild herniation in other cervical vertebrae.  Spine surgeon just wants to do simple procedure on me.  He also sent me to physical therapy and they’re shocked I’d consider surgery since I can do most things (not golf) pain free. They see surgery typically for people in more pain than I am in.  Speaking with my general practitioner, he suggested I speak with someone else who does injections, for my own peace of mind. Seems like surgeons wanna do surgery, physical therapists want to do PT. I’ll bet injectors recommend injections. And if I saw a chiropractor, they’d say they could get me back to working order! And the GP carefully avoids telling you what to do, so as not to contradict any specialist.   Thats a summary of where I am anyway. Also for what it’s worth, my physical therapists have done some things after the MRI showed herniation in the discs that have helped: 1. Dry needling, with electrical stimulation of the muscles that have tightened up. 2. Traction on my spine for 10-15min each visit that feels like it alleviates any compression in my cervixal spine. Ive been doing physical therapy since the spring, but once I added those elements after an MRI in December, I finally feel like I’m starting to progress toward pain-free full range of motion in my neck and shoulders. Knock on wood.  Good luck!!!
    • Hi Jon! Just throwing out an idea that has worked for me and head stabilization: Since you wear a ball cap, do swings where you look at some reference point right beyond the edge of the brim of your cap.  Don’t look at the ball. Just focus on that reference point and keep the brim of your cap right there.   My experience is that makes me aware of the 3D head movement as I move my body.  Do it a bunch of times in a row. Exaggerate the body movements but keep that brim focused on the same point.  You don’t even need a club. You can go through the body motions anytime you want. You look like an idiot if someone in the family sees you but hey, not like we don’t look like idiots anyway. Over time, it just became a steady head feel that lasted for me. 
    • Yes this is all true. I just feel Tiger was a more 'amazing' player than Jack ever was. I grew up watching Jack and have always been a big fan of his. Tiger was more explosive, a much better short game player, and well, he just dominated the fields where Jack just stayed smooth and consistent and carved out his victories. Jacks '86 Masters win was spectacular to watch. But again, he was solid and kept cool under pressure and made the shots when he needed to. But Tiger would go out there and just wipe the field clean. Jack never did that. I dunno. Both sides have strong points. Maybe had I been able to watch Jack as an older person I'd have a different perspective (born 1969). But for me, it's Tiger and probably will be for a very long time if not forever.
    • I don't like playing when it is too windy.  With that wind, I wouldn't even bother getting to a course.
