Not many people could pronounce my last name when I played College football so they shortened it and called me LaLa. 

 

And I dread the 3 Putt but I also read that you need to approach each hole and situation on a course with confidence so I am telling myself long before I ever putt that there are No 3 Putts!

 

(As for the picture, I am big fan of cigars and especially love to indulge on the course. So who better to pick as my image than Mr Jimenez himself?!)

So, mine comes from the world of Pro Wrestling. There was a wrestler in the 90's called Mantaur. He came to the ring with a buffalo head, cut his hair like ram horns, and moo'd. It was so dumb. But I took Taur, threw the first part of my last name in front of it and boom.

 

I am debating on a change to my social handles Berg Ryman, a name transposition from college when picking radio names. Not as my partners Mitch Jamels and Lamdrew Ambe

Bumping for Fix Your Divot and many other members that joined throughout the year.

edit: Before becoming a MOD  my username was CarolinaGolfer2, explained in the first post.   

When I became a moderator and had to have GolfSpy as the prefix, I was torn between the two.   I obviously went with my actual name, but have always missed the CG2 acronym. 

So if you see a GolfSpy_CG2 in the near future, that's why, not a new moderator!

Not too much mystery with mine:

GB- my initials

13- my birthdate

I am not exactly a creative person so I just picked the first thing that came to mind. I guess, it serves its purpose.

Sometimes simple is the best and looks and sounds just fine!

I'm not a small person, and in college I let both my hair and beard grow pretty long. One weekend during winter break I was caretaker up at a cabin, keeping it open for any students that wanted to spend a few nights in a remote area of northern New England.

While carrying a stack of wood back to the house one night during a snowstorm I slipped and landed rather ungracefully in fresh, fluffy snow.

The people inside only heard me cursing up a storm before popping back up in front of a a set of glass french doors completely covered in snow. Large, long haired, bearded man covered in snow cursing to himself in the woods... That was well over a decade ago and my friends from college still use it.

That's a great story!

Simple alliteration in my case, plus I had just made a stretch of nice, green side shots when I chose it.

I've got it printed on my golf balls.

I don't like the looks of sloppy Sharpie dots and lines!

 

It's true, you learn (or can learn) something new everyday.  I'd not heard the term "niblick" and thought it might just be your last name.

Do Right..so called because of my propensity for being a very exacting flight instructor during my flying days(as in Dudley Do-right) ..then deauxrite because I was living and working around a bunch of Cajuns and they said that I should spell it "correctly".  🙂  The Avatar is just me hitting on the range one lovely afternoon.

Steddygolf..... I’m not overly impressive on the golf course just “Steddy”. Additionally my middle name is Stedman as is my fathers middle name. My mother didn’t call my father Stedman unless she was mad. Most of the time everyone called him by his nickname, Steddy.

Moving forward my plan is to open a Golf Academy called SteddyGolf.

I jokingly told Stu, when I first saw his age in his stage one . You seem old for Student at ASU 🤭

I had always thought the screen name stood for Arizona Student.
