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?

As far as achievements go I broke 90 when I scored an 86

They can request their own badges! :-) It bumps this thread so others know to claim their achievements.

Your badge has been added. And I gave you the eagle badge because I assume someone with an albatross has an eagle or two as well… ;-)

I'd like to request the TST member outing badge too.  

I've been a little away the past several months so I probably missed the last one.  I know I've been to several though.

Broke par many times. held a course record once (6 under, 62) three hole in ones (therefore several eagles), my clubs singles KO champion last year. Couple of club championships. Definitely a stupid monkey but I'm just talking generally here.

Glad I saw this post - was wondering how badges were earned/claimed.

My requests:

Have Broken 100 (shot a 91 last week so my sights are now set on breaking 90 - stay tuned).

Have scored an Eagle (yay for Par-5's)

Have been practicing at least 2-3 times a week (if even for 20-30 mins to serve as my sanity out of the house) so I'll lobby for the Stupid Monkey badge as well.

Thanks for the admin support day in and day out.  Love this site - getting hooked!

I gave you these, but we don't know what you're working on or if you're doing it in the True Stupid Monkey Fashion, so check out these topics…

I noticed that @Golfingdad has a hole in one but not an eagle.  Unless he got a hole in one on a par 4, he should have an eagle also.  Right?

Maybe there is some distinction I'm not aware of...

    • Day 568, May 23, 2024 Loooooooong day today. Got some shadow work done with an umbrella.
    • Day 148: 5/23/24 Hit balls on the range measuring ball speed for each club. Recently watched a fitting video where the fitter said he targeted 5 mph ball speed increase for each club.  Mine weren’t quite there. 4 and 5 mph were pretty similar except for 1 ball. Big jump for hybrid, bigger jump for 4-hybrid, and huge change for driver. Swung for the fences with driver and hit them all pretty straight at the end of my session. Several at 111 mph, which is above my normal speed. Finished with chipping release 1 with several clubs.  Good session!
    • Birdied 15 at my home course today and made a birdie the other day at a course I don’t usually play. Will update the spreadsheet once I’m home on my computer. 
    • Day 70. Played 9 at Grand Niagara. Very very windy day, but I hit the ball well for me. The wind did help me hit my longest drive ever at 282y and I did make a birdie on a par 5. 
    • So, the struggle right now with the driver is that I’m dipping down with the body, shallowing wrongly.  When I try to get my arms down, I end up not turning much at all. End up hitting the sweeping overdraws or if I dip with the body then I’ll hit massive pushes. I’m trying to turn better with the body and also get the arms down at the same time. Easier with the irons than it does the driver. also, here’s an image when you almost entirely missed the ball. 🤣🤣🤣
