How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
I’ve been playing about 11/12 years. First started playing while in college and never stopped. I usually shoot low 90s or high 80s, with the occasional low 80 score where I go 4 over par through the first 11 holes and then the wheels just completely fall off for the last 7, like I did last week in Florida. Never broke 80 yet but this is my year.
What do you love about golf?
I love being able to get out and play with family and friends. Just shooting the s*** and enjoying each other’s company. I also love the competitiveness, but I enjoy competing against myself more.
3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?
I love MGS, I’ve been a reader/follower of the site for years. I like the fact theirs actual research that goes into the reviews, the honesty of it all, and that they have the best interest for the reader/player in mind. I don’t know any other spies.
4. Where are you from? What is your home course?
Chicago northsider born and raised. I don’t have a home course but if me and my playing partners are looking to stay close to home or walk well play Glenview, winnetka, or mt prospect etc. If we want to play a nicer course we’ll go to Highlands of Elgin, Bowes creek, or thunder hawk etc.
5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
I don’t know what the best thing about Chicago golf is to be honest. I guess i could say we have a lot of courses in the Chicagoland area and we are Centrally located for golf trips to Wisconsin or Michigan. Worst thing is courses are usually packed in the playable months.
6. What do you do for a living? I’m a small business owner.
7. How’d you pick your user name? Ish is a nickname I’ve had since I was a kid and it stuck.
