How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap?
I have been playing golf for about seven years now. I started swinging golf clubs after I finished playing baseball, so my golf swing was not the greatest. I could not keep my head down on the ball, and I would flare out extremely with my left shoulder. Over those years, I have been able to put together a solid swing. I'm working on my mechanics daily. I still struggle like most to string together pars with the occasional birdie. My handicap hovers around +18.
What do you love about golf?
I love golf's mental grind. Every shot you have to be so mentally focused and locked in. Being able to hit great shots gives me a satisfaction that I love. Also, being able to drink beer and have a good time with your buddies is what I love about golf.

I am from Fort Wayne, IN, and I would have to say my home course was Lakeside golf course before it closed, but now I play at various courses around the city.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
Best thing about golf in my region is the availability. There's always time to play 9 or 18. Worst thing, courses are beginning to close down due to expansion of those areas and the lack of interest in golf, which really is unfortunate.
