Humbly broke 80 for the first time with a score on the front of 5 over, and -1 on the back for a total of 76. Had 4 birdies on the back, with a couple of extraordinary shots. The back was somewhat fluke-ish, so the score isn't going to go too much to my head, but I do feel pretty happy right now :-)

I just want to personally thank all you guys who run this site and everyone reading who contributes wisdom here. Special thanks to @iacas, @mvmac, @saevel25, @Golfingdad, @Ernest Jones, @boogielicious, @SavvySwede, and @Lihu. The 5keys, the drills, all the threads, and personal insights provided here are priceless.

Cool! Keep breaking 80! Well done.

I did all 31 days of March "5 minutes daily practice"

Okay. Are you doing the April one? Those achievements - just the 5 Minutes Daily ones - I look for in the thread. So after April is over, post in the April thread and I'll see it and set you up. Thanks! And congrats!

I've just added two awards: https://thesandtrap.com/awards/.

They're the TST Outing Organizer and the TST Outing Participant. If you have earned either, please let me know specifically which event (the name and dates if possible) so I can note it in your award note.

TST Outing Participant x 2 (April 9/10, 2016 and April 2014).

Not sure if my write-up below counts as an official "Member Review" for the Member Reviewer award, but I did one for the awesome Ping G30 I received last year after the Newport Cup.

    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
    • No. At best you’re going to get conflicting advice that may or may not work with other things you’re trying to do in your swing. 
    • It’s been a month or two since I last played, but I took Classic out for a spin, and it worked just fine. The data was able to transfer from my device using my computer as well.
