Hello, from Toronto! Excited to a part of this forum:
Q: How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
Joined the junior program at the local club when I was 9 years old. Obsessed ever since.
Q: What do you love about golf?
It's really you against yourself! No reason for excuses and there's always room to get better.
Q: What brings you to MyGolfSpy?
In the last few years I've rediscovered my love for the game of golf after having taken a bit of break when moving from my hometown to a big city (Toronto). When I arrived in Toronto I didn't really know how I was going to keep playing because of how much more expensive it would be, and how much less accessible courses are. Last year, I stumbled upon a custom club fitting studio here in Toronto called TXG. They really opened my eyes to "the data" aspect of the equipment performance aspect of golf. Somewhere along the way I found MGS and was blown away by the thoroughness of the staff that are involved in testing AND the honesty they bring to the industry. Pure Class!
Q: Where are you from? What is your home course?
A "small city" called Cornwall in the eastern part of Ontario in Canada. I grew up playing and working at two different golf courses:
Cornwall Golf and Country Club
Summerheights Golf Links
Both courses were amazing, quiet, and affordable to play as a kid - and still are as an adult! I would probably be a member at both if I still lived in the area
Q: What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
Best: Fall golf in Canada is incredible. Around October, the leaves on the trees start changing colours and it absolutely beautiful outside no matter what course you are playing.
Worst: Being in Canada, the worst part is that I can't golf year round (it snows ). Golf courses are really only open for 5-7 months of the year, but they still need to pay the bills, so golf is generally more expensive here.
Q: What do you do for a living?
By day, I am a Building Performance Engineer What's that? Well... I keep a close eye on the operations of really big buildings (malls, office towers, etc.) to help the folks who manage and operate those building use less electricity and gas to them save money and have a smaller impact on the environment!
Q: How’d you pick your user name?
