How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? - Started golfing as a young kid with my grandfather. With high school golf season in Iowa in the Fall, I played football and took a number of years off from playing regularly. The last 4-5 years it seems to be consuming my life and I couldn't love it more. Currently at a 12 hcp, a lot of people I play with say I should be mid-low single digit, but Im just out there having fun, and play extremely aggressive since we dont play for much money. I like trying to pull off the miracle shots, although they are very rarely successful.
What do you love about golf? - Hard to beat being outside with friends enjoying something you love. I love being able to compete against myself and trying to improve.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? - Love the in depth reviews and honesty that MyGolfSpy provides. Have read a lot of articles over the years and used them to influence a fair portion of my bag. Figured I am on here enough I might as well jump into the forums.
Where are you from? What is your home course? - Living in Des Moines, IA currently, Most often I play at Waveland (Oldest Muni west of the Mississippi) since its only a couple minutes drive. Grew up in the Cedar Rapids area playing and working at Hunters Ridge in Marion.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? - Best, abundance of golf courses. No idea if this is true, but I have been told Iowa has the most golf courses per capita in the country. Worst, easily the long winters. Lots of die hards here though who brave the cold as long as there is no snow on the course.
