    I have wondered if someone had worked on something along these lines... but my mind prefers to see things a little more organized ... and it would also make certain threads or topics more easily found in a search.

    Some topics have multiple threads ... so I often wondered if someone created a list of various categories rather than one long list... such that doing a search on "putting" for example would bring a thread on Putting with a list of various putting threads versus trying to dig up multiple searches and finding what to sort through.

    I believe the thread topic would need to focus on the most common searches and then within each of those common searches a List could be found of various threads or discussions on those topics.

    some obvious examples:

    Putting tips thread (sub categories... speed control, aiming, ding vs miss ding)

    Approach shots - shreadsheet calculations

    Managing Winds - distance and aiming

    Short Game approaches (pitch / flop / punch shots)

    VEM - Variance and UFO's

    A - Z - some of the best discussions or humorous threads

     

    Of course even a thread like the one you started could contain the list of each of these and more topics..  Unfortunately.. I am certain there are things I haven't come across and others who have been around a lot longer than me.  I did do a bit of research to learn the game so anything I have collected I would be happy to share...

    Here are some samples of Putting threads I collected and looked at:

     A few putting links: Tekoma - JCSneed - StoneCold Nivlac - Young46 - AgentBrown123 -  Naturali  - 11BC2appears to be removed) - Gold's (old one April 2012 I hadn't seen but haven't tested)  -  ???Simple   - newer version of JC Sneed on ipad by babzilla33

      GR8 list e . I think putting lists are more common than other topics . Mostly for the in depth commentary provided by so many expert WGT players . Putting seems to have been studied more thoroughly from every angle and perspective . By so many .

      This list Here . Was not that . More specifically for me to refer to or remember some of the most controversial , humorous threads in the main forum ..

      When I had a CC . The CC forum had an index that took up the entire front page . All specifically categorized in different categories of interest .

    Tutorials and How To's from all over the main forum and our CC and website.

    Events . Site wide and CC .

    General info . All about WGT , CLASHES , Pro Shop ,etc .

    Mostly our own CC events . Stroke brackets , CTTH brackets , Daily Blitz , in CC Stroke play and Match play challenges . SOTW , Single play , CC vs CC . etc .Really more than any single person could play .

    Leader boards , winners , next events start time , Then trophies for every single one of them .

      And so much more .

      I tried to keep it current and at ones fingertips for access . It was a mixed bag of success .Many found it convenient . Many found it too confusing to find anything in . With events changing , starting , stopping , and starting again . Almost on a daily basis . I literally spent hours each day keeping the info current . Leaving myself to still play any events I hadn't played or ( missed ) yet that day . Then to tend to all the messages of inquiries , complaints , missed invites I didn't see because who can see that little green icon ? If you aren't staring right at it waiting for an invite ? I mean who does that ? While I was updating all the LISTS and creating new rounds .

      So even though I am a big proponent for specific LISTS . Keeping them current isn't easy and comes with a price ,

    Fartman56:
    what thrill does WGT get out of *** me.


    Squeeze your butt cheeks, it makes it harder for them.


    Fartman56:
    what thrill does WGT get out of *** me. You need to fix this wind *** you got going on.


    When I was younger we called it a p***y fart.


    Fartman56:
    You need to fix this wind


    It is hurricane season in the USA is it not. Could be part of your problem.


    Fartman56:
    You have already lost 90% of your players


    Probably explains why A/S games are hard to come by lately.

    Cheers

      I wish that it was that simple . Unfortunately it is a format that has been on the decline for some time . Needs a revival .

    No doubt, lot of info there.  Another one might be links to the various shot / wind calculators.... pinhunters version, Bilkos, Kats, plus the various options shared by players to do calcs quick mentally or on a calculator.... versus using complex spreadsheets.

    But yes... some topics are not as common... but for those that are... could save time.  But then maybe the search is part of the journey...

      It has come to my attention ( mostly in PCEA , but in Flash as well ).

      That many still have a hybrid . When they could benefit more with a 3rd wedge and use their 9 iron in place of the hybrid .

      Wedges are so amazing . Remember when Mickleson played Merion with 5 wedges ?

      This is my example of a GR8 amount of wedge utilization .Note the different yardages with each type of shot  .

      There are 4 different wedges and 5 different shots

    my full wedges 52 w = 115 yds , 56 w = 100 yds , 60 w = 80 yds , 64 w = 60 yds

    my pitch wedges 52 w = 39 yds , 56 w = 33 yds , 60 w = 25 yds , 64 w = 17 yds

    my chip wedges 52 w = 20 yds , 56 w = 16 yds , 60 w = 11 yds , 64 w = 7 yds

    my punch wedges 52 w = 96 yds , 56 w = 84 yds ,  60 w = 68 yds , 64 w = 50 yds

    my flop wedges 52 w = 47 yds , 56 w = 38 yds , 60 w = 29 yds , 64 w = 20 yds .

      And having this variety helps with amazing accuracy .

      Has it helped me ? Yes . I have a lot of good approach birdees , eagles , & holers .

      Here are a few . I have dozens more recorded .

    JUST A LITTLE CHIP IN

    FLOPPIN EAGLE





      That's all fine and well . But I cannot seem to learn to putt . My game will always suffer until I can figure it out .

      My LIST (s)( recently updated ) . Will take some time to organize and categorize . I do update them periodically . And do some sorting . But they are not in my focus often . I have got a few head aches at times trying to figure which way to go with topics .

      This Forums SEARCH is much better than I am .

      OOPS ! I tried to put too big of a table in the post below . The post that was there is above this . I lost the block . Lol .

      It is full to the bottom of these table lines . If anyone knows how to delete them I will .
