How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing golf for about 2 and a half years now. Right now I am at a 12 handicap and usually shoot somewhere in the mid to high 80's What do you love about golf? I love that golf is an open air game. Each and every shot is a new challange that requires a different approach than the last. I love that it is a mental battle against yourself where the disciplined players shoot lower. I love the camaraderie the game breeds. I love the feeling of looking at each shot as a new opportunity to be successful. I could probably go on and on and on but Ill stop there. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I like to think of myself as sort of an equipment junkie. Not really in the sense that I play all of the new equipment that catches my eye but I am fascinated by the advances in technology and the claims being made by companies. I dont know anybody that is a golf spy. Where are you from? What is your home course? I am originally from Wyoming where the golfing is expensive the off seasons are long. I moved to California and developed a passion (or rather an addiction) for the game. My home course is a 9 hole course in Woodland, CA called Wild Wings Golf Club. Best greens in the Sacramento Valley and a place that is near and dear to my heart. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing about golf in my region is that you can play year-round. Also, there are a lot of courses to play in a small radius to where I live. The only downside I can think of is that the region is overbuilt with courses and often times course conditions can be less than sub par, however, this is a minor complaint and often times does not detour me form playing. What do you do for a living? When I am not golfing, sleeping, or eating, I am an Elementary Teacher. A job that I love and would really like to work with kids and golf. Someday. How’d you pick your user name? My name and number I wore when I played college football.
