How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Howdy from Canton, Georgia. I've been golfing for about 50 years with occasional success. I currently have a GHIN index of 19.9 and dropping. I have been a certified club builder and repair for at least 40 years and still work on clubs both for myself and others who need reshafting, regripping or tuning up their clubs.
What do you love about golf? The unpredictability of the game. For me, it is often Jekyll and Hyde from Front 9 to Back 9, or even hole to hole. I often say the course or my game is predictably unpredictable. Where else can find all this frustration or elation in one place.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I see all the reviews and I am impressed with the detail of the testing. I believe that the work MGS does serves as a watchdog on the golf industry. I do not yet know any other Spies as we often lurk in the shadows and comment on the threads that we are passionate about.
Where are you from? What is your home course? My home is in Canton, GA, which is about 45 to 60 minutes northwest of Atlanta. My home course is Towne Lake Hills in Woodstock, GA.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best things about golfing in this area are the large number of courses to play within 20 miles of so. The worst things are the number of beginning golfers out on the course instead of in lessons or the driving range. They contribute to 5+ hour rounds. I am not in love with all the hills on courses, especially when Cart Path Only is required..
What do you do for a living? I am semi-retired and work part time as a food demonstrator at Sam's Club and also work at Towne Lake Hills as Starter and Ranger.
How’d you pick your user name? My name was picked fir me by a former daughter-in-law who was differentiating from her father and the name stuck.
