*NOW LIVE* - Updated Player Profiles!


Recommended Posts

Why actually yes, there is one more thing!  Since these profile questions are going to be used with member testing this season you will find that these questions, and maybe even a few additional questions, will still be on the testing applications.  Fret not however, as your current profile details will be auto populated in the testing application!
Also, any updates to your profile made while filling out a testing application will be pushed to your Player Profile, so the most up to date information will always be saved there.

OK that's pretty cool right there.

Really cool update.  At first glance everything seems pretty simple.  The only question that came to mind is how often you would like people to update their handicap?  Do you want it updated every time it changes; once a month, or just whenever there are large moves in either direction?

Thanks!

Great question!  The simple answer is as often as you'd like, which I would imagine for some might be every time it drops a tenth and for others once a season.  The good thing is that you'll have the opportunity to update it when applying for a testing opportunity so it's as accurate and recent as possible there.

The goal of maintaining it is such that if you're reading reviews and want to go to members of similar overall skill level you can get there.  Personally I like to keep mine updated, but It also has been rather consistent as of late.

  • FREQUENCY OF PLAY/PRACTICE:  This should include rounds and things like range sessions, lessons, or outdoor/simulator practice.  As much as I’d like to call myself a “daily” golfer I don’t think I should include putting practice while on work calls as a real practice session.

🙂 Either Week day player or Weak day player, will SWAG it when I get to it, playing every day M-F when weather permits, so not on break or watching for the computer screen to refresh but usually 9-hole rounds!  👍  (what is this warm-up thing anyway?)

Great idea and follow up comments. How about location? I know that a number of members have listed where they're located or play - but quite a few don't. Maybe use a more refined(localized)  version of what @GolfSpy MBP set up in the 'introduce yourself' threads. Note - this would be especially helpful for those of us that have 'get togethers' , especially since member map is no longer updated. And if you decide to do this - also have an alternate location for us snowbirds.

Personal opinion the handicap question being used for choosing testers doesn’t make sense. The field for strength and weakness covers this.

Theres low handicaps that can’t play a blade or even something in a cb style head and their handicap comes from not losing balls off the tee and a good short game while there’s a mid handicap who can’t drive the ball well but has length and has good iron game and ok short game.  Eliminating this and just using the strength/weakness is better approach imo.

Similar with swing speed. Only addresses one aspect of driver. Where is what type of spin and launch is a player, or do they fade, slice, draw or hook the ball.

Keep in mind that quite often several of these categories are ones that OEM's look for. Example we want/prefer players with these handicap ranges. Or we want to get several in these swing speed groups (super speed) so a lot of this is directly in line with that. 

The rest is for intros and reviews!

That’s fine but not including the kind of ball flight or spin has leaves out half the picture. Those categories aren’t even useful for comparing two players against each other for any reason. If there’s going to be some sort of swing/game criteria used it should be inclusive of all aspects of the swing and game

Thanks for the feedback, I think it’s a combination of these that helps understand the player as a whole. Looking at one metric alone does us no good, you’re right about that. 
 

but if I can see you’re a low handicap, with high swing speed, and your strength is off the tee, we can begin to see what sort of player you are. And I can see how you compare to me to see if a particular review you did would be of more interest to me. 
 

Also, I know a lot of people are proud of their indexes and want to be able to share their accomplishments with us.

For certain tests, say a driver, there would likely be additional questions as part of the application that might go into more specific aspects of your game such a shot shape tendency too. 
 

The player profile isn’t all inclusive in that respect, but a general representation of the player and their game.

The other thing to note is we get 4000+ applicants. The application portion of this requires simplicity. There will be several that don't know those numbers or data points. 

We can certainly look at eventually creating a more extensive player profile, however for what we need and require this fits. 

For future updates we will have these points written down and look at them.

When the update goes live you will be prompted. 

May be early next week, but we wanted to give a heads up rather then surprising you with it.

I have an issue with Player type...   

  • Competitive – Are you driven to compete against others, or working to shoot lower scores?

I don't see these two attributes as being the same and lumped into a Competitive player type.  I can see that one could view a person working on lowering their scores as competitive within themselves, but that's a different person from one that enjoys the competition against other players for quarters in a gangsome or tournament setting.

I am not a competitive person in golf; I was many years ago, but that time has passed.  However, I still strive to make improvements, and I enjoy the feeling properly executing a shot.  However, I do not view my Player Type as a "Weekend Golfer" - a weekend warrior somewhere between casual and competitive.  I generally play or practice daily.  

To me, the Tour Player type is just a Competitive Player type, just at a different level.

I would like to see something like this...

  • Competitive – Are you driven to compete against others, and/or Do you compete on an actual professional level?
  • Dedicated –  Are you driven to improve, and working to shoot lower scores?

 

Bingo! My feelings exactly.
