Getting Started with Evolvr 2.0

Welcome to Evolvr

We've been doing this online instructional thing for a looooong time, and by eliminating the middle men, we can offer good rates and good value. Thank you for choosing to work with us, and we look forward to helping you #PlayBetter!

What is Evolvr?

As before, Evolvr is a $49/month (the first month is $59 including the setup fee) subscription which allows you to upload up to four submissions per month. Each submission can contain two swings, typically a face-on and a down-the-line video. Within a few days, an instructor will reply with a video, some images, links to drills, etc.

Most students do not use four submissions each month, and that's fine. Changes take time, but four gives you the option to submit videos which ask "Am I doing this drill properly?" or to address anything that pops up.

Who are you guys?

Evolvr is staffed with Golf Evolution instructors. For the past few years, Erik J. Barzeski has been doing most of the instruction here.

Evolvr was created by PGA of America Members David Wedzik (two-time section PGA Teacher of the Year, Golf Digest Best in State, and former Web.com Tour player) and Erik J. Barzeski (Golf Digest Best in State, Golf Digest Best Young Teachers in America, 2019 section PGA Teacher of the Year), as was 5SK, LSW, and Analyzr video analysis software.

How long will I wait for an analysis?

Typically your video will be analyzed within three to four days, and at most it will take about five days before your swing is analyzed and a reply given. We strive for quick turn-around, and only things like family events or out-of-town schools will slow us down! When we are out of town for an extended period of time, we'll post a notice on the site.

How do I share my videos?

For the purpose of saving space on our server, we ask all students to upload videos to YouTube. They can be embedded (instructions for this are here) directly within your thread, and you can make them "unlisted" on YouTube so that they don't show up on your channel for anyone to view. This lets you control your videos, rather than us controlling them and periodically removing them to conserve server space.

Our replies will come in the form of embedded YouTube videos as well. You can download them to save them to your computer.

How should I record my swing?

Though this can change if you're working on something special or unique (like, say, your driver swing or your wedges), we typically prefer that you take video from two views - a "down the line" view and a "face-on" view - while swinging a mid-iron (like a 6-iron).

It is very important that you record from the proper angles. Instructions for this are here, and we're adamant that you record from these angles and remain consistent in doing so.

Also, to upload slow-motion videos from your iPhone, please see this quick article.

Can I cancel at any time?

You can cancel at any time. Any fees (setup or recurring fees) you've incurred prior to cancellation can't be refunded, but when you cancel you can continue to use the subscription for the remaining term, and then your account will be deactivated within 72 hours. Access to your swing topic ends at that time as well, but you will still be a "member" here so you can resume in the future (and re-gain access to your swing topic).

What is your refund policy?

Unfortunately, we can't offer refunds. If you have any problems at all, though, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us and we'll do our best to resolve them. Please do let us know in the topic when you choose to leave the site what your reason is, as we strive to make Evolvr the best we can.
