    How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
    I started playing golf in March of 2018. I had played a few rounds before then but mostly just drinking beers on the course. My handicap when I started was -♾ but by the end of 2018 I was a 32.1. 2019 has been a total transformation as I have dedicated myself to becoming a student of the game. After spending a decent chunk of change on a fitting and bag outfitting and basically forking over thousands of $ for nothing that would benefit me i decided to take things into my own hands. I went to another fitter and instead of telling them I was brand new I just gave them a little data and what I was looking to accomplish. Got some clubs that fit better and that set me up for 2019. In 2019 I have played over 100 rounds taken tons of lessons and I wake up to be at the course when the range opens so I can practice till it’s time to go to work. I am now a -7.8 handicap and the goal is to get as close to scratch by the end of 2020. Lots more to this story not just in the last but hopefully in the future as 
    What do you love about golf?
    i love the mix of chemistry physics and biology coming together. I played D1 ice hockey and golf is the only other sports that I have played that combines everything I live into one. Hockey and golf share so much, but the biggest common thread is look good okay good!
    What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?
    I came here for the data and technology reviews and it keeps me here. Data does not lie and club technology is there to help why not use it. The best line I heard here is okay as much game improvement technology as you can handle. At this moment I don’t know anyone else but hopefully that changes.
    Where are you from? What is your home course?
    I am from Dallas - Fort Worth area and my home course is the golf club at fossil creek.
    What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
    The best thing about golf in the DFW is that there are a lot of courses to choose from for anyone’s price point. There are also a lot of guys who buy anything that will help their game and it does not so you can grab some good deals. The worst thing about the DFW is it’s all the same grass for the most part which I learned when you go to a place like Florida Illinois or New York and play a round it has a huge impact on your game.
    What do you do for a living? 
     
    I am in software sales, but I am looking for an opportunity to break into the golf industry.
    How’d you pick your user name?
    I just used my first name. Some things are like putters best when kept simple!

    Here is one mans feedback on the BGT stability putter shaft.
    It is expensive, but when compared to an aftermarket driver shaft it’s well priced. I would not look at adding this till you have been fitted for a putter head that fits your stoke. If you have been fitted for your head it’s worth it to buy it and get fitted by BGT. For $350 they spend 2+ hours with you before and after the shaft on the quintec ball roll system (Trackman for putting) and I was shocked at the results and instant improvement in my putting. The stability shaft combined with my evnroll ER 1.2 has virtually eliminated 3 putts from my rounds and have taken me to a single digit handicapper. people spend hundreds maybe thousands on drivers and irons so $350 for an incredible fitting and something that will provide an instant improvement to me is a no brainer. take it for what you will and while getting closer off the tee for better approach shots is very important the quickest way to lower scores is taking less putts per round.
