I work in the R&D department of an iconic doughnut company. My job is to create and decipher good data. I think my background will help drive the accuarate data MGS is known and appreciated for.

 

My golf game is hit it long and wedge it to the green. I'm decent from the sand, but I don't play too many bump and runs. I'd rather hit a high flop which was easy with my old Zings. It's harder with my current Tour S.

I would play the 52, 56, and 60 black dot ES.

Currently play the Ping I5 but they must be a dozen years old now (wow, where does time go).  I also play a mix of wedges from Titleist and Top-Flite(which I bought used a long time ago but is still my favorite club.  I unfortunately bent it last year).  


My love for this game is only exceeded by my love for my children and family.  It is something I am very passionate about and spend a lot of time working on.
