Long time reader, first time poster!
How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
I've played for fun for around 12 years (Just turned 25). While I've always loved it, hockey was my main focus through college. My handicap is 13.x at the moment, and I typically shoot mid/upper 80's.
What do you love about golf?
Relative to hockey, it's a much more sustainable sport to play competitively, through both handicaps and the level to which we compete with ourselves...not to mention it's much easier on the body as well. It's also a great way to spend a day with friends and meet new people.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?
I've read both the site and forum for a while now, and it felt like about time that I join. While I know other readers, I am uncertain if any are members of the forum.
Where are you from? What is your home course?
I live a few miles South of Pittsburgh, and my home course is The Club at Nevillewood. Bedford Springs is another favorite.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
The hills and the hills. I think that they make for some tremendous scenery and fun yet challenging holes, but can also turn walking some courses into a hike, literally. Obviously I wish it were 75 and sunny every day as well!
What do you do for a living?
I work at a wealth management firm in an investment research role, and as an advisor/planner primarily for younger clients.
How’d you pick your user name?
It's simple - it is a nickname and my number from hockey days.
