How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
I first swung a club around 8 years old, but didn’t get serious about the game until high school. My lowest handicap was about 8.5 right after high school, but after a break from the game I’m now at 13.3. My goal is to get back to 10.0 by the end of the season.
What do you love about golf?
I love the personal challenges. I’m competing with myself on the course, always trying to play better than my last round. I also love that this is a game I can play until the day I die.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?
A new golf friend mentioned the site as a good source for swing tips, product reviews, and interesting reads.
Where are you from? What is your home course?
Originally from a small city in southeastern Michigan, Monroe. Lately, most of my play has been at Links of Novi, though I would hesitate to call it my home course. I hope to become a member at a course a bit closer to home next year.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?
Golf in Michigan is wonderful. There is such a variety in course styles, quality, and rates. I can find a course within an hour drive to fit whatever mood I’m in. The worst part, is that there are 4-5 months a year where we’re restricted to indoor nets and simulators.
What do you do for a living?
I currently work in sales at an automotive supplier in the metro Detroit area.
How’d you pick your user name?
I picked it in high school and use it whenever I can.
