How'd You Pick Your Screen Name?

Easy one for me. If I make a par, it’s usually if I managed to one putt. I use this name for all the golf sites I go to as it was always available!

My Wife expressed interest in learning to play so I inadvertently became her swing coach haha

We'll see how she reacts when I tell her my hourly rate LOL

I'm performing a bit of threadomancy, but why not....

So, explaining my ID....   it stems from a sarcastic nickname a friend of mine pinned on me.  Her crack was "oh yeah, you're the energizer bunny."

I'm bowling in league a couple days later.  It's during a time when you kept score by hand.  I had a habit of occasionally writing down creative things, or not very creative things, for people's names on the scoresheet.  Remembered my friend's comment.  Decided to play around with it a bit, in a "hooked on phonics on acid" sort of manner.  Came up with what you see here.

It was actually N.R.Jyzr, dropped the periods.

There you go, short story made long.  Some have assumed it had something to do with New Jersey, but I've never been there.  🙂

Thanks to @jlukesfor making me think of this thread. With so many new members coming on board it is often oldie, but good threads like this get forgotten or lost, but they are great ways to learn a bit about some of the members here and share your own stories. 

I've gone from Danbrook (last name) to Apolloshowl (link to my pup Apollo's howl below) and now GolfSpy_APH. Which is just short for Apolloshowl.

When I decided to change to Apolloshowl there were a lot of life things going on. Apollo has been my best bud for going on 8 years now and simply brings so much joy. Even though we have 3 dogs now he is still my shadow and my comfort. I have a wonderful wife who is incredible and when Apollo took to her so quickly I knew she was a keeper. Therefore it was easy to dedicate my name to him and for anyone who has read any of my reviews you will be able to spot pictures of him in the background or in the case of my strokelab review he was in the middle of the mat while trying make my videos! Either way moving to a GolfSpy tag it was a easy choice to stick with him. He is also the name of all my fantasy teams and the abbreviated form is APH.

My last name is Howard. My good friend/best man called me any number of nicknames based on my last name throughout college including Howitzer, Hoboy, Hobertina, and Hobert among others. At some point he settled on Hobert.  As the the need for online aliases arose, I used Hobert and never stopped.

Love the video, and you know I really think Apollo is just freaking adorable. I just let my wife watch this and she absolutely melted hearing him speak.

it's been my gamertag since I was a freshman in high school. It's also my email address and I would be lying if I wasn't embarrassed when applying for my job when the recruiter asked for my email.
