  1. 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.
