How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
My Uncle introduced me to golf in the early 80s as a kid. I was never any good and only played 2-3 times per year. In the past few years I started playing in more charity scrambles and have had a lot of fun. Last year I started getting more serious and this past summer I played about 50 rounds and another dozen charity outings. I don't have an official handicap, but my swingxswing app says I'm an 18.5.
What do you love about golf?
It's a break from work and something to focus energy on. I love being on the course and the challenge is addictive. I got my wife a set and some lessons and now she'll sometimes wake up on a Saturday morning and say, "hey, you want to go golfing?" Yes, I do...
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?
Don't know of other spies, but I'll asking. I like the independent reviews and test data.
Where are you from? What is your home course?
Sidney, Michigan. No real home course. There are 3 within 15 minutes, so I rotate.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
Weather. It's November 2nd right now and it's cold, wet, and blustery. April can't get here fast enough.
What do you do for a living?
How’d you pick your user name?
The shank part because it's a golf term, I actually rarely shank it. The dog part came from me being a K9 handler.
