  1. Just like the 2020 topic, we're gonna do it again here in 2021! Like last year, I'd like to birdie every hole at Whispering Woods in 2021 (and maybe every numbered hole on other courses). I'd like you to join me on this quest. This year's spreadsheet is below: 2021 TST Birdie Challenge - Google Sheets Home Course Welcome to the 2021 TST Birdie Challenge. Rules? There are no rules except this one: fill in your best score relative to par on the holes as you achieve them. If you birdie a hole twelve times, it's not -12... Please click through, add you
  2. I'm calling it a challenge because I'd like to challenge everyone to do this, but it's not the type of thing I'm going to award a badge for, it's just something I think can help you understand how different feels can be for this type of thing. We see from a lot of the game's best that they turn their torsos about 75-80% by the time they get to A3, and one of the ways to "shut down" your torso turning rates is to bend your trail elbow a lot or too soon. For example: Of course, it's not always true… but then again, I don't know if I'd really teach the swing on the left anyway. Or
  3. In a different topic, I said this once: I could have sworn I started a topic specifically on this. Turns out, after ten minutes of searching for it, it was a blog entry, and it's here: So, rather than just being a challenge in a blog, I'm making a real challenge. You can win a badge for your account: https://thesandtrap.com/awards/category/5-challenges/ To complete the challenge: Get an 8-iron. Film a video of yourself with a ridiculously strong grip hitting the ball at least 85% the normal distance of your 8-iron. In the same video, show yourself wit
  4. Here's the deal, folks: I'd like to play enough golf and birdie every hole at Whispering Woods in 2020. I'd like you to join me on this quest. So, I've set up a spreadsheet here: 2020 TST Birdie Challenge - Google Sheets Welcome to the 2020 TST Birdie Challenge. Rules? There are no rules. Just fill in your best score relative to par on the holes as you achieve them, and let's all have fun and cheer each other on in 2020! Please click through, add your name, home course, and location, and when you make a par or a birdie, add that score to the sheet, with
  5. After a year or two of coaching my college golf team, I came up with a challenge for them, as they would make too many stupid mistakes on the par fives in particular, and on too many par fours trying to hit a hero shot when they got into trouble. The challenge? It's simple: don't make a six (or higher). Despite many, many rounds in the 70s or low 80s, and 75 rounds played in total, we have still only had about seven successfully completed rounds. I almost never have a six. Greater than half of my rounds are played without a six. I'll take a bogey on a par four, and I rarely boge
  6. Based on discussion in a previous topic… I'm happy to introduce the official Flop Shot Catch Challenge topic! I've created an award (you can see at the top of the Site Awards) and will grant it to anyone who films themselves hitting a flop shot above head height and catching the ball before it hits the ground while still holding onto your wedge, then posts that video here in this thread as an embedded YouTube or Vimeo video for all to enjoy. Hopefully the rules can stay that simple. Please be careful, though, as we do not want anyone injuring themselves trying to do this. Attempt thi
  7. I'm blatantly stealing this from elsewhere (with some modifications). Here's the situation. Someone offers you the following wager: if you can make a hole in one on a regular par three green the length you hit your full 8-iron (so, say, 135 to 165 yards depending on your own personal abilities). If you succeed, you win $5M. If you fail, you go to jail for 5 years with no chance of early parole. Some other details: You have 30 consecutive days to complete the challenge. You get to hit up to 250 balls per day (so, up to 7500 balls). There's nothing tricky about
  8. With the six-foot-putt challenge, we also have the "opposite swing" challenge (kinda), and the flop shot catch challenge. So I'm thinking maybe we should have a separate awards category for "Challenges." I'd like to create a standard background for the award (a circle or square, probably) on which we could put an image showing the specific challenge. The standard background would make it obvious that it's a challenge, with the unique part highlighting what specific challenge it is. Any ideas?
  9. GIR is KING! Yet I still go for pins when I shouldn't. I recently received a GameGolf Live and have enjoyed analyzing the stats the website provides (it's a good distraction from my swing). So I decided to give the "Challenge" feature a try to help me keep GIRs in my sights. I've started two challenges that will run June 1-30; highest GIR% overall, and in a single round. Tie-breaker for both challenges is putts-per-hole. The challenges are open to everyone on GameGolf, but if anyone here is interested, I'll spring for a nifty TST-logo ball marker for the top-finishing TST member in e
  10. I'll keep this short and sweet. I'm issuing a challenge to everyone here that can get out to a practice putting green and do this. Warm up putting around the green to get a feel for the speeds. Find a hole with a little slope to it. Not flat, but nothing crazy either (3% or so is fine). The putt should have 4-5' around it in all directions on the putting green. Put 12 balls down at the 12 clock positions and 4-5' away from the hole. Putt them toward the hole and count how many of the 12 you make. Put the flagstick in. Go to another hole and hit a few putts to get
