Greetings MyGolfSpy Community,

 

My name is Michael Konrad and I just joined this community. Although I have followed mygolfspy for quite sometime now on Facebook and Instagram I decided it was time to join the forums. I really like what this community and program is all about and I have especially enjoyed reading about all of the testing of equipment. In other words I am just excited to be a part of it now.

 

As for my golf game I am a 6 handicap. I played collegiate golf at Montana State University at Billings and I used to be a lot better back in those days, but I just don't play as much as I used to. Now I get to play about once a month at various courses throughout Las Vegas. In fact I am going to go play the TPC Las Vegas on Monday. By far my favorite place to play and practice is the Paiute. I usually take advantage of their PACC membership for locals. Although I don't play as much as I used to I live in a golf community here in Las Vegas so I get to practice about 3 to 5 times a week.

 

As for my professional life I am a high school teacher. I am also just about done (another month or two) with my doctorate in performance psychology and my dissertation focuses on golf coaches and their experiences with performance psychology.

 

I also have a small, but growing family. My wife and I welcomed our daughter into this world on May 8, 2017. Although she is still young we are saving up money to put a putting green in our yard so she can one day practice with us.

 

I look forward to meeting all of you, talking about golf, and life in general.

 

Take care,

 

Michael Konrad

Welcome from nearby Washington State! Glad you joined us Michael.  My wife's nephew is the Associate Dean of Students at MSU; been there for 7 years.  Congrats on the new addition to the family, and good planning on the putting green!!   Being a lifetime Marriott Gold member, I have spent a lot of time at the JW Marriott and played the TPC Las Vegas.  Nice course, but TPC Summerlin is better.  Lots of nice courses on LV.  If you get a chance, check out The Revere GC in Henderson.

Hi Kenny,

 

Thanks for the welcome. My wife is from Vancouver, WA and we also lived in Vanouver for a year as well as Prosser in the Yakima Valley for a year. There are some good courses in Washington and I also miss the wine tasting . Take care and thanks again.
