Hello all, long time lurker, first time poster from Orange County, California here! Finally made the time to invest myself into MyGolfSpy after absorbing countless information from every post
How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
I started playing golf around a year or so ago, and surprisingly I was pretty good at it, so I quickly picked up the game. I've been going to the range almost every other day, and visiting various courses locally on weekends ever since I started. I would say that I am a mid-low handicapper as I'm almost shooting near 90s now!
What do you love about golf?
I love the community, and I love the game itself. As an extrovert that loves spending time with close friends, I find playing sports/games myself (basically, I mean playing without your friends/people you know) demotivating and unsatisfying. However, golf is different. While I do frequently go out to the range and 9-18 hole courses with friends, I also love the alone time. Hitting the balls at my own pace, working on whichever technique I want to without giving friends advises, turning on youtube in the middle of a driving range session to figure out what I am doing wrong, I LOVE being able to learn about these things.
One other thing I love about golf is the technique and the math behind the sport. I love breaking things down and gaining FULL understanding of every tiny little aspect, and I found golf to be an endless learning session haha.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?
I came across MyGolfSpy couple months ago by clicking an suggested link for an review of some clubs, and ever since then I have been stopping in MyGolfSpy every other day to read discussions, new posts, and reviews!
Where are you from? What is your home course?
I am from Orange County, California. I would say my home course is the Dad Miller Golf Course, but I bounce around all the local courses.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
I would say that both best and worst thing about golf in my region is the weather. It is anywhere around 80-100 degrees during the day, so in the beginning of a golf session the weather is very nice, but after 30 minutes I can't stand the sweating and the heat.
What do you do for a living?
I am a recent undergrad graduate, so for now I am at home, studying as I am planning to take the LSAT for law school.
How’d you pick your user name?
My username is one that I have always used. I don't know where the numbers came from though.
