  1. Hey almost-neighbor! My daughter is attending UGA and my cousin lives in Watkinsville.
  2. Yup, for almost 25 years. I think I'll stay.
  3. Hi everyone! How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I've only just begun. I've taken a few lessons, hit a couple dozen buckets of balls at a range, and I played 9 holes (very poorly). I'd say my handicap is currently somewhere between 31 and 500. What do you love about golf? Golf is challenging, yet kinda fun. I'm either really excited when I finally hit that great shot, or contemplating dropping my clubs off at Goodwill on the way home.

  6. Hi everyone! Totally new golfer and new to mygolfspy. I have actually only played 9 holes to date. I have a used set of Nitro XLTs and am looking for something a little (or a lot) better. I feel the Nitros are crap and do not allow me to shoot as well as I could with better clubs. And yes, I am taking lessons. My instructor agrees Nitros are crap, but did not say run out and spend $2,500 on a new set of clubs. I found a set of Mizuno MX17 Irons, 3 - PW that look brand new for $350. Is this a good deal? Second question: Will I be able to tell a difference in my game, or sho
