Congratulations.  Nice thing about golf is there are no style points, just results.  As the years go by, feel free to embellish upon the accomplishment!  ;-)

Congratulations!  Make sure to claim your Hole in One Award here:

 

Thanks!

I didn't realize there were awards for that kind of stuff.

I went to the thread, do I just send a message to iacas?

Call it a hole in one.  That sounds better than an eagle, at least to me.

@70sSanO, Does "SanO" mean San Onofre?  If so I spent time there in the 60's and early 70's when it was a surf club.  First wave I ever stood up on was there, I was 7.

It sure does, but I was not fortunate to surf there (no club member with access) before Nixon granted public access and Reagan made it a California State Beach.  I know the club hated that.  I learned to surf at Bolsa Chica (Tin Can Beach) on a 9'6" longboard, but SanO was my favorite spot.  When short boards took over the 70's I would often scramble down trails and have the place all to myself... literally.

Then in the 2000's our sons and I would hit the surf beach (Old Man's) at least a couple times a week.  Was part of the non-list club for a number of years.  Kids surfed in the club contests and usually did fairly well.

SanO is a real soft spot for me and I plan to get down there during the week and catch a few waves when I retire.  Not quite ready for fighting the weekend crowds.  Old guys really don't rule in a SoCal lineup, even at Old Man's.

    • Lol. Well if you don’t want to reach your potential then you’re exactly right. So If by realistic you mean what you’re willing to work on, then yes. And I’m not knocking that at all. I personally have never taken up a sport with the goal to be as mediocre as possible but I’ve known those who are happy to just play regardless of how they do. 
    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be? 
    • This is a bad calculation because many people have more than 1 vehicle. For me, I have 3, two motorcycles and a car, and I don't think I have ever taken all 3 out in the same day, let alone 3 times each. A better metric would be 3x licensed drivers.
