Tips For New Members!

Recommended Posts

I've been a member for a while , but never got around to introducing myself. I hope to be more active in the future. I recently retired from the Air Force after 21 years of service to this great nation. I'm originally from Arkansas, but currently reside in ABQ, NM and work as a Mechanical Estimator. I started playing golf in 2001 while stationed in Japan, but I have not progressed as quickly as I would like to have. My current handicap is a 19, but my lowest is a 13. My lowest 18-hole score is an 82, while my lowest 9-hole score is a 36. I love that this game is always challenging, yet very enjoyable. I first heard about MyGolfSpy through a "Be Better Golf" video on Youtube, and as popular as MyGolfSpy seems to be, it seems that anyone I talk to about it has never heard of it. I typically play a few different courses, but have recently joined a club for handicap and tournament purposes only...University of New Mexico Championship Course. There is typically great golfing weather in NM, but there is a monsoon season and it is usually windy here.

Welcome aboard and Thank you for serving our Country!

HI All,

New member from Zurich, Switzerland. Starting playing again last year after a 25 year break & forgot how hard this game can be!

Trying to really give golf a go and mostly enjoying my slow progress.

Been a bit for this one and think it deserves a bump. Still a little ways out from testing season, but still seeing lots of new members around. Great to look this over and as the above check out the FAQ section as well as if there is a topic in mind you want to chat give a quick look at the search tab where you can narrow the focus and likely hop into a ongoing conversation about the topic you were thinking about! Its a great tool and helps merge topics rather then having multiple threads on the same thing. 
Cheers to all the new members and happy new year along with a great start to 2021!

I am a new budding golfer looking for a place of learning and discussion.

I sort of learned how to swing irons back in highschool back 15 years ago... but decided it was time to really learn and play golf with my friends. I look forward to all the information and tips and hopefully learn how to properly play golf and maybe even go below 100 on the field.
