My name is Roy Roger Stewart, I reside in Cullman, Alabama a block from TP Country Club; according to my friends and family, I am a certified "Golf Nut." I'm currently 71 years of age and I started playing golf around age 50 at the urging of my Supervisor. He approached me one morning and informed me of an upcoming golf tournament I was expected to play in. I informed him that I had never played golf other than Putt Putt. The next morning I was presented with a loaner set of Bob Toski irons and woods, and told I better start practicing. A few lessons and a lot of time on the range, and I was hooked. I'm a mid handicapper, and although at my age and medical history I will never be on tour, I love it!
MyGolfSpy and its contributors have been helpful as I have progressed through equipment over the years.
The best things about golf are the people and the places. I've made life long friends across the country that I likely would never have known outside of golf. I've played golf across the US, in Canada, Ireland, and Scotland, places that I would never have dreamed of going, and building memories that often make me smile. There are also fond memories of professional tournaments I've attended, such as The Masters, PGA and Champions Tour events. I've learned to greatly appreciate the skill of PGA professionals, as well as that of various playing partners. I marvel at the beauty of golf courses in natural setting, as well as those displaying marvelous engineering, such as Top of The Rock, or Buffalo Ridge near Branson Missouri. Golf has opened a new world for me and I'm thankful that some "Nutty Scotsman" dreamed up a game I can play the rest of my life!
