How’s it going everyone?
My name is Brandon Brooks, and Im a 17-year-old golfer from northern “yee-haw” Maryland. I’ve been playing golf for about 9 years, but didn’t get too serious about it until my freshman year of high school when I tried out for my school’s team. I didn’t play in any matches, but I loved playing every day and dedicated myself to get better. That year my low round was a 45, where I averaged between 49 and 51. My sophomore year my low round dropped to a 42, where I then averaged between 47 and 49. This year my low round is a 40, and I average between 42 and 45 (We only play 9 holes at practice). I have a lot of improvements to make, but I continue to work!
The thing I love about golf is that it allows me, someone born with a rare birth issue, to not be held back by anything except my own mental strength. I have fewer abdominal muscles than most and my kidneys are poor. I can’t play football or lacrosse because its too dangerous to my insides. I was always too slow for basketball or baseball, but Golf was perfect for me. I work at a golf course, play all the time, and love every minute of it.
I came to MyGolfSpy this season when I was looking for new irons. This website helped me to decide on, what I believe, is the best golf purchase I have made. A brand new set of Mizuno JPX919 Forged irons. I always look at the site now when I want to try a new ball or see what company is at the top of their game with the clubs each year. Sometimes I wish Mizuno got more recognition for their woods though :’)
As stated earlier, I am from northern Maryland, in a small town near Westminster. My home course is Oakmont Greens (not the tour course), but I work at a very nice private course called Piney Branch that I will say has the fastest greens I have EVER played.
The best thing about golf near me is that because I am from a small town, the courses I work and play at know me. They know I play for the high school and they know I’m there to improve. The worst part is that most of the courses end up mediocre at best, or the public one at least. Luckily I can play at the private course I work at, but that’s the nicest place around.
As I am only 17, I go to school and work in the bag room for a living :) Last year my gross pay was $2,500! Almost enough for a simulator to play with at home! Too bad I buy so much McDonalds...
My user name is based off of what many of my friends call me. My name is Brandon Brooks, so they just shorten it to “B Brooks” I like it, so I figured people on this site could refer to me as it as well :)
Thank you all for reading!
