Hello everyone my name is Greg and I live just south of the Tampa Florida area. 

I'm about to turn 50 next month and have been playing golf since I was 7 or 8 and learned by reading the Jack Nicklaus book Golf my Way.

In my late 20's and 30's I was an assistant golf pro at several courses in Florida and had a hdcp of 0. Unfortunately I had to grow up and get a real job (The pay isn't great and the last course I was at closed). I have continued to play and or practice as much as life would allow me to with getting married, raising a now 16 year old daughter, job etc and maintain a hdcp of 9.5 which frustrates the heck out of me!!! :-) 

I recently starting playing with components that are similar to the cobra F7 one length irons (5-SW) and I have to say that I am very impressed. Yes, I had to adjust my yardages for my short irons (a little more than 10 yards for my SW, GW and PW), but I only lost 4-5 yards with my 5 iron. Even though I lost 4-5 yards with my 5 iron, my dispersion pattern is definitely better. 

If anyone is in the area and are looking for recommendations on places to play, feel free to contact me. 

 

Thanks

Welcome!

 

We will have to play sometime - I'm over in St. Pete.  We have several members that we need to get together once the weather cools off a bit.  Have you ever played my home course, Bayou, over in Largo?

No, I haven't played there and definitely agree there should be a golf outing with fellow members living in the area. I play quite often (7-8am tee times to avoid the lovely summer heat) at Cypress Creek (hidden gem) since I live a little more than a mile from the course. Am looking at a membership at River Hills in Lithia.

River Hills is a sister course to Bayou - I've played there a few times on the reciprocal.  Nice enough track - a little easier to score on.  I play late in the day as my 16 year old daughter has a disability that require my assistance in the morning.  But we can certainly work around that to find a time to play.

Greetings from Tallahassee! If you are ever up here on a Tuesday evening, hit me up, and you can be on my team in our weekly scramble at Golden Eagle. We're about the same age, with the same sort of golf experience. Well, I've never been scratch (4 now), but I am willing to learn. ;)

Golf may be a good walk spoiled, but it's a better walk then trying to read anything Mark Twain wrote.

    Anyone out there wear or have worn New Balance spikes? In my opinion they make a pretty good shoe. As of late they have worked there way into the baseball scene and appears they have done quite well.
