How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Been playing for about 35 years total. Was extremely competitive 25 years ago, playing 4 or 5 times a week (worked at a country club) with a 4 handicap. Needed to finish school, get a real job, etc and have played maybe 3 times a year in work events for the last 15 years. My son plays baseball in college and when his season was cut short due to coronavirus, he started messing around, caught the golf bug and now has me back into it. I’m guessing I’d be a 12-14 handicap right now...determined to get back into the 70’s.
What do you love about golf? It’s evolved for me. 25 years ago I’d play Friday matches where we’d barely speak to each other, grinding over every shot...and I loved it! Today that would be miserable. It’s nice now to get out with my son or friends, be outside, away from work and drink a few Beers.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? .i don’t know any spies (that I know of). I just got fitted and bought new irons, replacing the 20 year old Pings, and was doing research before I bought woods/hybrids when I stumbled upon the site.
Where are you from? What is your home course? Grew up in the North Dallas / Richardson area, playing Firewheel, Sherril Park, Chase Oaks and Tennison most frequently. Now I live in Round Rock (just north of Austin) and usually play Teravista, Star Ranch, Forest Creek but get lucky from time to time and have a friend get me on at UT Club.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Can’t complain.

How’d you pick your user name? My usual one was taken so it’s variation on my name.
