Welcome to RMS…
Thanks for coming by. Here is a little about us, so you guys know why we do, what we do, when we do, what we do hangin out late… (Sorry had to). Anyway, we created this for you the golfer. We are all in some way or another obsessive compulsive about our golf game, in particular our swing. It’s OK, we admit our problems and quite frankly have no intentions on correcting our compulsiveness.
How it all got started,
Watching golf on a Sunday afternoon thinking “hmmm, how do you get a swing like these guys without hiring a $100.00 an hour swing coach (not that they are bad) and getting half the lesson filled with his greatest golf shot stories”? How about a site where you could upload your swing, get it “RATED” and have a community of golfers, along with instructors, comment on your swing and give you correction ideas? Then we thought ok sounds cool, but how many people bring a video camera to the range or on the course with them? We came up with the idea that EVERYONE has a cell phone (OK Uncle Jesse I know you don’t yet.) and most people would rather be late to work because they had to turn around and get it, then not have it on them for one day. So the mobile application idea was born. We connected with some great app developers and started the plans on that. We now have a mobile device for anyone who can create a quick video and it’s now as easy as a click of a button to submit your swing directly from the RMS app to our site…PERFECT!
Who are these guys (and girls)?
Brandon – Is an absolute golf freak. He has been swinging the clubs for 25 years and thinks “he should have won the lottery so he did not have to work and could have practiced everyday to be on tour”. Honestly the guy could practice for 8-10 hours a day and never get tired of it. He has an established single digit handicap and loves to play for money with the boys! Brandon has an amazing family with a beautiful wife and 2 amazing kids who he adores beyond belief. Brandon is an advocate for the “keep it simple” golf swing and is excited to get everyone playing better.
Mike – Plays 3 to 4 times any given week (weather permitting in the Pacific Northwest…). He’s known for his colorful sense of humor and easy going demeanor. Like Brandon, Mike would prefer to be a career golfer but until that day comes he spends his Monday thru Friday designing and building custom remodels for lucky home owners. Mike’s biggest bragging rights, second to being a co-founder of the site and winning the worlds’s best Dad/Husband of the universe title, is his new membership to a local, private club (ranked as 63rd most difficult in N. America by Golf Digest in 2011).
Krista – has only a couple seasons of play under her belt but already suffers from the addiction of 18 holes a week. She loves the game, the culture and the self-driven challenge required to master the sport. Krista is a well known market research professional by day and a serial social media fanatic by night (all while juggling a husband and 2 children). She has a talent for marrying Mike & Brandon’s passion for the game with her passion for business and combined will someday fuel this start up idea into stardom. She also makes a mean sandwich….
Lyndzie – Is a mother and a wife and wouldn’t have it any other way! She has recently started to play this great game we all love and enjoy but at times she states that “this is the stupidest game ever invented”. She is determined to get the hang of it even if she has to buy stock in Band Aids to cover the blisters! One thing she “has” gotten the hang of, is the cart and the bloody mary’s that fit in the cup holders! She is still not sure about watching golf on T.V. for 5 hours but occasionally will sit down and take in a couple holes. She plays an intricate part on our team and is very good at thinking about things as our users would, as they navigate the site!
To wrap it up.
We hope you guys enjoy the site and spend some time playing around on here. We really think that the social aspect of golf is really going to play a key roll in this. After all, can you think of another sport where you can show up as a single, get put into a group of three buddies, introduce yourself, hang out for 4 ½ hours, have a “beverage” or two or three….and by the end of it you shake hands, thank each other exchange numbers (to play again) and go home and tell your spouse how hard of a day it was at work…You gotta love this game!
