Hello all and thanks for reading.
I first swung a club in my early teens. Would borrow my Dad's clubs to hit the range or play 9 with my friends. That is until I was hitting his wood driver and the face insert flew down range half as far as the ball. At that point it was time for my own clubs. In my early 20's I bought my own clubs and would play a few times a year. It wasn't until mid to late 30's that truly fell in love with golf. Now I've invested more time and money into the game which I feel is close to paying off.
I usually play 9 to 27 holes a week. Golf league on Thursday at Evansville Golf Club and my friends and I try to get 18 in on weekends. Actually missing 18 with the boys right now due to work obligations. Not sure of my handicap but I generally shoot 45-48 for 9. Again, I feel I'm close to that being low 40's.
Golf is therapeutic to me. I work on the service business where the only reason people talk to me is because something is wrong. Golf lets me get away from that. At times it frustrates the hell out of my but when you pick one clean or have this gorgeous ball flight or stick one close it feels so calming. Of course, I want to break a club when I chunk one from 100 yards out.
I found MSG last year as I was starting to rework my bag. Found reviews very helpful in putting me on the path to find clubs that would work for me. Truth is, there is just so much out there and being able to pick 3-4 brands to choose from to test helped not feel so overwhelmed.
I live in Madison, WI and love it. There are at least 15 courses within a 20-25 minute drive for me. No shortage of options. Some better than others. As I said before, I play Evansville every week the usually The Oaks, Door Creek, Pleasant View, Meadows at Six Mile on weekends. I really should explore more courses. If anyone wants to join let me know. Need more playing partners.
I work for wholesale company in the skilled trades as an Operations Manager. Started with this company when I was 20 so I'm in my position because I know our customers and what they want & need. Not because I know how to manage operations.
As for my handle, my nickname is Tito and in my early 20's I was the diplomatic one of my all roommates. During arguments or riffs I would be the voice of reason. One night after a few beers 1 of my roommates called me The Mayor. Hence MayorTito.
