How long have you been playing golf? Been playing golf since I was 15 years old. Started off in high school PE class because I broke my leg and needed a PE class that didn't involve running. One semester of learning the game and I never looked back. From there I was off to the races and was on the varsity team team for the next 3 years. Didn't play any college though I probably should have as I was a scratch golfer at the time.
What’s your handicap or normal score? Handicap is currently (as of Aug 1, 2021) at 7.4 and my typical scores are in the low 80s, nothing over 85.
What do you love about golf? Bringing together friends, working on beating the course, trying to keep positive when having a bad hole, the time I get to spend with my wife and son on the golf course, the golf vacations we take, there's just nothing not to like about golf.
What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I'm not a big forum poster at all and typically just read all the reviews that MyGolfSpy puts out there to see if a product that I'm interested in is reviewed and if so, what is the community saying about that product. I don't necessarily take reviews as the spoken word because everyone is unique and that's what makes golf interesting, what works for you may not work for others and that's totally fine.
Where are you from? What is your home course? I'm born and raised in Orange County, California. where golf never sleeps. It's golf season all year round from January thru December and it's fantastic. Even through COVID we were able to play some of our local courses, albeit tee times were a bit harder to come by. We don't have a home course as we are 50 miles outside of Los Angeles, 50 miles outside San Diego, and 1.5 hours away from Palm Springs, so we play all over the place.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Worst things about golf that I've experienced, at least lately, are the people who think in Orange County that you're actually going to get a round of golf finished in 4 hours. Courses are packed and there are all types of skill levels out there now so folks really need to just be patient. I mean what else do you have to do that you are in such a rush, obviously not working on your game, and by no means am I saying that we take all day cause that's not acceptable either. But go out there and enjoy your day with your friends and have a beer or two and chill out. Best things about golf in our region is that there are a ton of courses that are completely different for all skill sets and all are challenging in their own way!
What do you do for a living? I'm a Controller for an Aerospace company.
