Hi Forum Members,
I just wanted to introduce myself. Here is my profile.
I’m waiting for April to come around so I can start going to the range.
How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
I started playing golf as an older adult about 25 year ago. I did not keep an official handicap this year,
but my 2018 official GHIN was 17.0 and an online calculator has it as 16.8 for 2019.
- What do you love about golf?
There is a lot I love about golf. I like the challenge of the game, being out and about on the course,
and of course, occasionally playing out of my mind and shooting par for a few holes in a row during the odd round.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?
I don’t know any other Spies. I started reading mygolfspy when I was looking for reviews on golf equipment.
I continue to read the website because I love the unbiased reviews.
Where are you from? What is your home course?
I live just west of Boston.
I don’t have a home course. I usually play Norton Country Club and Stow Acres North.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
Best - Variety of courses to choose from. Early fall golf, after the color of the leaves change but before they fall, is just great.
Worst - Winter off season. I’m counting down the four long months before I can hit the range. Indoor simulators are not the same.
What do you do for a living?
I retired this summer (2019). I used to be in chemical research.
How’d you pick your user name?
I am a bogey or worse player. I don’t have a negative image of a hacker, as long as we keep up with the group ahead.
I took lessons when I first stated playing but I have not taken any lessons since. My swing is my own - and Youtube’s.
I know that’s not a good thing.
I was able to play over 50 rounds in 2019, so I may look into getting some real lessons in 2020.
