    Hey Everyone,
    This is my first post on the forums - but I look to become more active after lurking for a while.
    1. I've been playing since I was maybe 9 or 10. I started playing with my Dad on vacation, then started playing with him and his work buddies as I began to put things together. However, I was a competitive swimmer and didn't have time to dedicated to competitive golf in middle school / HighSchool and certainly not in college. I only picked it back up around 2008 when I found a set of Tommy Armour irons out front of a row home in Baltimore being given away for free (full disclosure, I was walking back from the liquor store with a 30 pack of bud light for a party when I snagged my first "adult" set of clubs). I got back into it and after a few years bought a set of Titleist 714 AP1s. Fast forward to 2022 and I upgraded to a fitted set of T100s irons, a TM SIM 2 driver and 3 wood, 2 new TM wedges (60 and 50) and a Vokey 56. I've been working down from a handicap of 18, now I'm solidly at 11.5. I'm happy in the low / mid 80s, but have broken 70 once (well twice if you consider a simulator as a real round). 
    2. Everything. Honestly though, I love the personal improvement aspect of it. I'm fighting myself, no one else. Sure, I could lose to a better player, but if I execute to the best of my ability, I'm happy. I like working on the technical details, seeing improvment with small changes... and seeing regression when I change something the wrong way! I'm not a tinkerer with my swing by rather focused on improving everything around it - aiming, control, etc. 
    3. I've hung around for a while, but finally want to get more involved in sharing / engaging! Might also like to be chosen as a tester some day too 😉
    4. I'm from the NYC metro area, but now live in the Annapolis, MD area. The closest course would be The Preserve at Eisenhower Golf Club in Annapolis, which I play a lot, but i play league at Compass Pointe in Pasadena so that's probably my home course.
    5. It gets VERY hot and humid here... We have a lot of good courses, but none THAT close to me... too many private clubs and well, I'm not rich! However, there is a great golf culture here and decent courses available, so I can't really complain. 
    6. I run a cyber security business - if anyone is looking for Dark Web Threat Intelligence, let me know! haha
    7. Well... it's my name so.... ha
     
    I have 2 kids and my 8 year old daughter is showing real interest (and skills) in the game... if there are any others that want to play a father / daughter round and round out a 4 some, let me know! Also would love to find a way to do business networking with other golfers - I don't know where I went wrong, but I've never found my customers or partners want to play golf! So if you are a professional in the cyber world, let me know - maybe we can go play 18!
