3. Check out the different threads and share your thoughts.

 

Lots of great conversations going on - please feel free to jump in and tell us what you think.  Our only rule is to be nice!

There are so many things to learn on how to post topics.  Actually, I'm still learning!!

 

I would add to Barbajo's post that to start a new topic, click on the Forums button at the top left of the webpage, then select the forum best suited for your post.  Near the top right of that forum page is a Start a New Topic button.  Add title and if you want, keywords separated by commas, and start typing.  

 

Pictures are a little more complicated; if you need assistance, just ask.  BTW, pictures are much easier to post using the MyGolfSpy app on your phone.

We don’t stop playing the game because we get old; we get old because we stop playing the game.”

Hi everyone Tony from N.Y. With a pursuit of info to make my game more enjoyable. Right now golf is a four letter word for me as a 25 handicap. Looking to get better

Love this game on and off for about 30 years. Just start playing hard for the last 4 or 5 years. And still a hack..😃😃😄

Hi.  Wanted to introduce myself.  I'm a golf nut from Southern California.  Am recently recovering from surgery to repair 3 torn quadriceps tendons in my left leg.  Just starting to play golf again after several months of rehab.   Feels good to be on the golf course again!!

I've been here for a short while, but am still finding my way around.

 

Just a quick intro, and offer to others out there.

 

I'm old school golf meets new millennium. From first clubs being wooden shafted to being able to hit the ball over 300 yards at the age of 60. From good old balata to resin blends.

 

Any and all tips & suggestions given to me will be listened to and considered...and, my offer to you is any questions that I may be able to help with will receive the same consideration.

 

Hope that the storm hasn't gotten in the way of your holiday weekend plans, and would love to know how your courses have handled the rains.

Golf...a game you can't win

 

But, you can hate it & enjoy it at the same time

Can I ask a silly question?

How do I get the actual logo of the equipment I'm using in my signature like a few others do?

Ok maybe I just figured it out.

 

I'm Tony and have only played for 5 years. I realized (painfully) that I should have started playing at 6 vs 60. I'm a member of Catawba Island Club in northwest Ohio and am fortunate to play a lot since we live adjacent to the course.

 

Currently play to a 24 handicap and would probably play better if I could get a sports psychologist as a caddie [emoji23]

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but if new members would like too, BigTazz started a members map in the Members Introduction section. You can pin yourself in the area you live. It's really cool. You can look right on Google maps and see where most members are from in the US and around the world.
