  1. you mean golf channel tour right? the golf week ONLY does shotgun starts, so with 120 players it takes forever
  2. in a member guest tournament 2 years ago, there were 78, 2 man teams that's 156 players, shotgun start. It took 4 hours to play 9 holes. It was unbearable
  3. yea so it has to be tee times, not shotgun start if thats the case, i might look into golf channel tour
  4. that doesn't seem possible. 180 players on each course, so 10 players per hole. did they do 2, 5 somes per hole? i feel like that would take 8 hours per round oh, maybe you did tee times and not a shotgun start? (GWAM only does shotgun start) if tee times, i can believe it
  5. I will give my 2 cents. I played Golfweek am tour past 2 years in charlotte nc the tournaments are run well and its essentially cash prizes (visa gift cards that you can use anywhere) the cost is higher than a regular round for sure (they have to make a profit), but a lot of the events are on private tracks you cant get on easily otherwise my issue with the Golfweek is pace of play. Because they are for profit, they will put up to around 120 players on the course (its always a shotgun start and they will double tee every hole except par 3's) im done with it. An average round is 5.5 hours. If cart path only, it will be 7 hours I cant do it anymore. If my first 4-8 holes arent good, i've literally walked off the course multiple times now (because i was already too far back to win anything) done wasting my time and money
  6. Thanks @klineka for the review yes, I can customize this to any phone actually at this point, I have the designs for probably 95% of the smart phone market but it i dont, i can easily make the one you need
  7. this was a great study, one of the most thorough ive read yet Ive been leaving the pin in for every single putt this year and FINALLY after 50+ rounds had one bounce out the reason: it was a 20 footer, left to right breaker, and the pin was leaning 10-20 degrees to the left i need to pay more attention to the lean now on, and take out if its leaning towards the way the ball would go in
  8. I found this topic when I was searching for “most rounds of golf in a lifetime” I honestly might set the record for all time Im currently 35 years old, and for past 3 years ive averaged 300+ rounds per year, and I can keep that up for the rest of my life barring any major injury. I wont ever have kids, so I don’t need to worry about that Heres my exactly round total since 2006. I used to have the data before that but the hard drive crashed so I would have to estimate. In college, I also averaged 300+ rounds per year 2006 155 2007 180 2008 153 2009 188 2010 157 2011 211 2012 178 2013 197 2014 212 2015 237 2016 311 2017 304 2018 332 2019 31 So this total is 2846 I didn’t play golf at all before the age of 16 (1999), so my best guess to fill in the data would be 2000: 40 2001: 40 2002: 150 (started college) 2003: 250 2004: 300 2005: 300 What happened in 2006 was that I graduated and had to work a regular job. That sucked Now I work for myself and can do what I want again So grand total (estimated): 2846 + 1080 = 3926
  9. yes it would be better if it could rotate without taking off, but my goal with this was to keep it simple and as a result keep the price point down once you add more parts, the complexity and assembly time increase exponentially, and so the price has to go way up Pretzel had some good advice on it being able to be mounted sideways. See images for new model.. Going to start up the printer tonight and get it made
  10. yes, and most golfers i know already carry those alignment sticks, so it just attaches onto something you already carry. and it weighs like 2 ounces so if you carry your bag, you wont even notice the weight difference
  11. im going to add in clips so that the swing shot can be oriented horizontally as well ill post photos when i have it
  12. i appreciate the extra posts, but i do have 2 people at this time i need to send to you can still get one on ebay if you like
  13. also a good answer, ill send you one as well what phone model do you have? and i need your address as well and i like that idea of clips to all it to be mounted sideways, ill add that feature into the design. this is why i like asking people for feedback when i have an idea i always get ideas to improve that i didnt think of im in vegas for a week, ill make it and send next week when i get home
  14. good answer, ill send you one i will create a new version for each phone, although the same case will often cover quite a few models. I havent made one yet for the S8+ but almost all the major phones I have covered. Because of 3d printing, I can make a new version for each phone very inexpensively. please send me your address
  15. Looking for some feedback on a new invention of mine, so the best 2 responses on why you would be a good candidate will win a free sample The product is super simple, I call it the swing shot 2.0 (because I had a previous version) the case holds your phone to any standard alignment stick, so you can video your swing or if you just wanna take selfies 🙂 I made one for myself originally and use it almost every round I play and when Im on the range heres my ebay listing: swing shot 2.0 golf camera Selfie Stick Holder Alignment Rod Video Record Clip This case will hold your phone to any standard alignment stick at the perfect height for video recording your swing. Also perfect for many other purposes like selfies and group photos. I 3D print these specific to each phone so I...
