What's going on MGS members?

 

My name is Kyle and I am from Ohio- I've been using MGS for almost a year now but decided recently to start posting and looking at the forums to help my game out, and see what cool new equipment is out there! 

 

I used to be a College Baseball player, but now my passion is golf- I would play everyday if I could and almost wish that I would have started playing earlier in life

I started playing in 2015 -

 

Currently on the road to break 80- best round an 85..

I am not one of those golfers that will overstate my skills or how far I hit it because of an ego thing- If i want to be a single digit handicap then I gotta work for it golf is like baseball in that way ! 

 

For those that want to know or interested in WIB

Welcome Kyle...I grew up in Ohio (Dayton) as well.   That's making good progress if you started two years ago and are already shooting mid 80's.   Lots of good golf, equipment and trip talk going on here, you found the right place.

Welcome from NE Indiana! I take it the transition from swinging a bat to a club wasn't all that tough for you?

Not at all. Playing both sports made my swing even better. Those who say a golf swing messes up a golf swing and vice versa are wrong ! You become more aware of what's going on!
