I've been lurking for a year or so, and just discovered being in the Recruit Group, since I've been only a lurker all that time.
Guess I need to introduce myself, then.
How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Started at age 12 with group lessons through Parks & Rec. Played off and on through college years, then took a hiatus while a career got going. Had a few years of playing and a few years off, then back about 6 years ago. Working harder on the game. Handicap is 14, currently, but, like everyone else, I aim to improve it.
What do you love about golf? Most everything. I love getting out in the fresh air and beautiful surroundings. I love competing against myself, and playing with friends (old and new).
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? No known Spies. Found MGS through an article I was reading on equipment, and have been hooked on the testing reports and reviews ever since.
Where are you from? What is your home course? I currently live in Southeastern Virginia. I play in a weekly league that plays about 15 courses in the area. Of course I have some I prefer (sadly, my favorite closed last year!), but not really a home course.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best: plenty of courses, fairly reasonable greens fees, and weather that lets me play nearly year 'round. Worst: most of the bunkers have hard-packed mud, so the club just bounces into the ball and a properly hit sand shot sends the ball either into the face or over the green. It's a challenge!
What do you do for a living? As little as possible. I'm officially retired, but am a part owner in a franchise business that is not local. I handle several aspects of that business from home. It's for sale, btw
How’d you pick your user name? Dreaming of breaking 80!
