Hello! I don't typically join forums but I just had to join MGS due to the amazing community. The wealth of knowledge amongst the member base is expansive and I've based many of my equipment purchases off the reviews given by testers on this site for better or for worse.

 

I played baseball my whole life through college. Once I got out, I still had that competitive itch so I picked up golf. More or less, I taught myself through videos, articles, and self evaluation. I spent a lot of time at the range and developed my own swing from what I could learn online. Many people are astounded when I tell them I've never had a lesson.

 

Fast forward a couple years and I've got a wife and kids and less time for golf. I joined a golf league and that was the best possible thing for my game. I get out once a week (and still sprinkle in weekend rounds) and the competitive format has forced my game to improve. I'm better now that I've ever been and my love for golf is at its all-time peak. I keep my clubs as up-to-date as possible through tons of buying/selling on eBay and walk every round since it's my only exercise, HA!

 

It'll be a complete honor if I ever get to test equipment. I've been a part of the process for baseball equipment and enjoyed every minute. I write for a living and believe I could translate these talents into quality information golfers can utilize in their equipment purchasing decisions. I'm happy to be here and look forward to contributing to the community!

Southern Maryland actually. I don't go to the Annapolis/Baltimore area often but there does seem to be some nice courses in that area. Will definitely keep you guys in mind.

Well depending on how far Southern MD is, I've been to Lake Presidential many times, and while I haven't been there a lot, Swan Point is a fantastic course,  I can't think of any others that I have played that would qualify as Southern MD.    But those of us up here aren't opposed to a drive as we often end up driving an hour or so to play some western MD or NOVA courses.

Easy peasy. We can do a home and home series.
