First post! Woo hoo! Pumped to be here! How long have you been playing golf? 2 WEEKS! And boy.. it shows. I’ve mainly just been hitting range balls but do go “play” a par 3 9 hole “fun” course a couple days a week. What’s your handicap or normal score? I shoot in the 40s on the par 3 9 hole course, but have only been three times so far. What do you love about golf? It’s the only sport I’ve picked up that I completely SUCKED at the first time I tried... Like way below even the average first timer, I bet. I’m excited for the challenge. I’m former ACC Champion high jumper and played basketball at a collegiate level, but my knees went in my late 20s from so much jumping/landing impact, so had to walk away from sports. Been mentally obsessed with my business ever since- Hoping golf is a mental relief. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I was looking for a community on Google to be apart of... Yalls SEO is on point, lol. You guys came up first, and the community is BUMPING! It was a no brained to join! Where are you from? What is your home course? Roanoke Virginia. I’m still not sure where my “home course” is- we have 16 courses within 30 minutes, which is insanely exciting for me, but I’m only a “member” to one, Ashley Plantation in Roanoke Virginia. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Variety I’d say is the best thing. Like previously mentioned, there are 16 courses within a short drive. BUT, it’s a double edged sword I feel. Roanoke isn’t THAT big... couple hundred thousand people in the city and surrounding areas... and let’s be honest, Roanoke isn’t exactly a happening destination site. So a lot of these country clubs and courses are struggling to stay a float. I personally think in 10 years, less than 1/3 will remain at the current paces, and SOME (not all) of the locations are starting to show the financial struggles and cutbacks. What do you do for a living? I’m an online business owner and consultant. I help businesses grow using the internet. I own leading digital training companies in basketball, baseball, yoga, Spanish, and golf. I do the nerdy “online” stuff- but work with some of the best trainers in their areas of expertise online. I recently partnered with an amazing golf training company, but in doing so, I made it a point to practice what we teach, and took on golf as something I want to learn and master! How’d you pick your user name? Ugh, I wish now I would have come up with something more clever, lol. It’s just my First name and last name, shortened, lol. It was the email abbreviation my college gave me, and it stuck lol. Excited to be here!
