Hey y'all, happy to be joining the group
1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
I've had golf clubs since I was about 12 years old, but I only played for one year and then hung them up. I picked golf back up when I was in college. That means I've been playing since for about 15 years at this point. Only the last 5 or so have I taken it seriously though.
2. What do you love about golf?
I love most the amount of thought and concentration that golf needs to play well. It's a great escape from the normal stuff and forces you to focus on something different. Depending on the course, the scenery certainly is a very very close 2nd.
3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?
One of my friends used to be very interested in golf, and always was on the search for more information about equipment and sent me a link to MyGolfSpy. But I didn't really start regularly looking until No Putts Given popped up as a suggested video for me on Youtube. I don't believe I know anyone else that is registered here.
4. Where are you from? What is your home course?
I'm from Fort Collins, CO. My home course is Southridge Golf Course. It's not the most challenging course in my town, but I think it's the most rewarding and consistently in the best condition.
5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
The best thing about golf here is the scenery and not having to play in absolutely blazing heat in the summers. The worst is the lack of courses, and of course, having to take the winter off. Fortunately we now have Xgolf in town, which is basically just bar with simulators, so at least I don't lose my swing every year anymore.
6. What do you do for a living?
I work in the family business. We do design and supply products, primarily for home remodels. I work mostly on the design side at this point, however, I'm the succession plan for my parents when they want out, so I'm trying to learn all aspects of the business now.
7. How’d you pick your user name?
My username is the nickname I've had since I was about 11 years old. I forget exactly how it came about, but from 11 until I left town for college, "Doop" was what everyone called me.
