How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
I am 31 years old and have been playing golf for 26 years. I grew up playing at a small 9 hole campground course in Iowa where a junior membership for the year was $100 or so. My current handicap is 3.7 and I normally shoot between mid-low 70's and low 80's
What do you love about golf?
I love the challenge of golf and the competition when playing with others. I also love how humbling the game is, you can have one of your best rounds of the year and the very next time you go out and play you shoot one of your worse scores. And finally I love the creativity of golf - having to try to hit crazy shots or being extra creative around the greens.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?
I know one other Spy, who basically introduced me to the site, but I had heard of it before. What really brought me here though is the independent club testing, that’s what I’m most interested in. I wanted another source of information of data for clubs, balls, equipments, etc.
Where are you from? What is your home course?
I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Don’t have a home course but love to play lots of public courses in the area. If I had to say which one I play the most it is probably Kaufman golf course or Thornapple Pointe
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
Lots of affordable options for public courses, and a lot of them are really good quality too. Worst thing is the limited time to golf due to the long winters.
What do you do for a living?
I’m a mechanical engineer who does product design and product development.
How’d you pick your user name?
I’m lame and just use my name.
