How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been swinging the sticks since I was a wee lad of 11 years old, emulating Tiger Woods. My grandmother bought a set of junior clubs to hit around her back yard in hopes that we would take after our great aunt whom was an early LPGA player. However, I only started playing golf regularly (more than once a year) when I married into a golf family. I am now a avid golfer and member of a men's league. I even chair the rules committee. I currently shoot in the 90s to low 100s and even have been putting up low 40s on 9 holes in league rounds this year (2021). My league handicap is a 12 currently for 9 holes which would translate to 24.
What do you love about golf? I love/hate the game. I have always been an athletic type that love sports. period. Golf is another sport that I can try to master. I enjoy the community of a league, we are all good friends and love the light hearted competition the league brings.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I started receiving emails recently likely after reading a review or something then I was pulled in with the Honma driver tester search. I do not know any other Spies.

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing is their are lots of good course in my region. The worst thing is that I don't have time to golf them all as much as I would like.
What do you do for a living? I am called The Michigan Brain Bank Coordinator, Brain Guy, Brain Guru, Brain Bank Manager, but the reality is, they don't know how to label what I do. I assist/perform autopsy services for our neurology department at the University of Michigan...80 to 100 of them a year....plus I also process tissue sample requests, ship tissues around the world, manage a small staff, process biospecimens samples from blood products, and complete endless amounts of paperwork while running a call center (me and a office phone).....did I mention I am on call 24/7 365.
How’d you pick your user name? My user name has been with me since I was 19 years old. I had read an article about not using your name in your email to avoid spam, so I created Perkmd. Perk as the first 4 letters of my last name then may first and middle initials M and D. It has stuck with me ever since and now get mistaken as MD referring to me being a Doctor.
