Just a quick intro about myself. My name is Jason, I'm 44 yrs old, was born and raised in Chattanooga, TN. I've been in ABQ for about 14 months.
How long have you been playing golf? I started playing when I was around 11 or 12. But dropped it for many years due to it was jacking with my baseball swing and baseball is what would be paying for college.
What’s your handicap or normal score? I came back to the game about 12-18 months ago with some seriousness about it and am currently carrying a 19.4 handicap.
What do you love about golf? The mental grind, the internal battle of trying to stop thinking, yet being able to remain awake. Giving each shot its due focus without overthinking it. Finally, those 2 or 3 PURE shots that ensure you will be back sooner rather than later.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Came across it a few months back when I received one of the "testers wanted" emails. I dont not know any other spies but am definitely looking to make some great friends.
Where are you from? I am originally from TN, I have been in Albuquerque for about 15 months.
What is your home course? I would have to say that Sandia is my "home" course, although I do rotate thru the other local courses pretty regularly
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
Best: Pretty much year.round golf available and the course conditions are superb, particularly at the casino courses.
WORST: There are many days throughout the year where the wind makes play an exercise in futility at best and impossible at worst.
What do you do for a living? IT Project Manager for a medical software company
How’d you pick your user name? My highschool back home in TN has the absolute best mascot /team name...The Chattanooga Central Purple Pounders. So I kept the last parts and combined into 1 word. It may also be occasionally applicable to accurately describe that 1 drive out of 20 where the stars all align for that straight, baby draw shaped tee shots that finds it's way out past 3 bills.
