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.

      Just a new member checking in from Arizona. As the topic alludes to, I share a name with one of the young up and comers on the tour. It certainly gets me some great reactions, but I honestly wish I could have half of his game.
       
      As for me, I am playing off of a 25.8 handicap. I have lost over 130 pounds this year which has drastically affected my swing. I am starting to feel like I am making better contact and that my scores will start to come down in the near future. I am always open to suggestions, especially on how to groove the proper inside-out swing.
       
      I look forward to being a part of Mygolfspy!

      Hello,

      I can't get enough golf! Glad to part of the community.
       
      I didn't get into golf until later in life. (I wish I had started as a toddler ). I have spent approx 80% of the last three summers at the range grinding it out with lessons, deliberate & focused practice etc.and not really seeing the results. 
       
      This summer I decided to flip the script and have spent ~80% of my time playing, and only hitting the range sporadically. I try and play a local par 3 course weekly, as well play 9 holes x2 weekly at a traditional course. My short game has improved dramatically which is probably the real reason for the lower scores and not so much cutting out the range
       
      I'm playing some pretty good golf (for me) and am shooting in the mid to high 80s consistently I have never been able to do that in years past.
       
      Now I just have to get use to and comfortable playing with others, as I pretty much always play solo. But as my scores improve so does my confidence.

      - Cheers!

      Greetings fellow members. Just joined the forum today. Started playing golf later in life and discovered a passion for the game. My handicap is at 13 and aiming for single digit this year. I hope to gain plenty of insight into the latest trends in golf equipment and techniques in this forum.  
      Cheers!
