Hello everyone, my name is Tanner and I am currently finishing up my business management degree at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. I have been playing golf on and off for about 10 years now.

Hello Fellow Spies. I'm not new to the site, but this the first time I've posted to this thread. I usually go to other threads to read and comment. I've been playing for 55 years. I didn't really take

Hi everyone, very much looking forward to conversing with the groups, my quick responses to the initial forum questions are below: How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap

Hello, all.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?

    • About 6 years since I first swung a club, but I only played about six rounds total in the first two years. Handicap 21.2 and falling.

  2. What do you love about golf?

    • I've come to appreciate that it's something I can do by myself. Not that I prefer it -- quite the opposite -- but with my other sports (ultimate and basketball) if there aren't a several others who are free to play, then I'm not playing no matter how much I might want to. (To say nothing of virus restrictions.)

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?

    • Best, most in-depth coverage on the net. Been reading for 2-3 years. Don't know anyone else.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?

    • Cary, NC. Unofficially, my "home" course is Lochmere Golf Club.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?

    • Best: I can play year round, and Southern Pines/Pinehurst is only an hour and change away. Worst: In the winter, the grass is brown and dormant and the clay soil (everywhere except Southern Pines) drains really poorly.

  6. What do you do for a living?

    • Software engineer

  7. How’d you pick your user name?

    • My school and a piece of equipment I used to carry on Saturdays.

Been away from Golf forums for a bit. Figured it’s time to dive back in. Still living in central NC. Try to get out as much as I can but all my golf buddies have moved away.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Seriously for about 10 or so years is my guess. Off and on before that.

Hello

I've been playing golf for 50 years, and play blades oh, I have a 22 year old Snake eyes irons, and 20 year olds MacGregor v foil driver and 3-wood. I own a barber shop in ellenton Florida, and I play as much as I can, I say I'm an 18 handicap but the truth is sometimes I can shoot 75 and sometimes I can see 90. I don't care. I play the game because I love being on the course I love walking oh, so I rarely ride in a cart. I love being on a Munch nature, walking on a beautiful lawn I don't have to mow and communing with the course. my screen name is Daddy's flying because I'm a pilot and have been since I was very young. I came to golf spy because I really want to try out the Hogan icons, but I keep coming back to my Snake-Eyes custom-made blades. That said, as I said I love to walk, and I'm getting kind of old to lug heavy clubs.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Been about 6 or 7 years now. I'm around a 21 handicap though I haven't golfed much since my kids have gotten into the toddler phase of life, so the next time out I'll be happy to break 100.

  2. What do you love about golf? That one perfect feeling shot (a round).

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I'm a scientist by trade, so I love data. I know Rob Canady. Not sure if he'll vouch for me or not. 😆

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? South Carolina. I used to be a country club member but poor management chased us off. Now, getting back in is going to be financially difficult, though we're considering it. So I'm really a nomad right now.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best? Lots of courses. Worst? I don't really see a downside to having this many options.

  6. What do you do for a living? I'm a gene jockey (molecular biologist).

  7. How’d you pick your user name? My nickname back when I ran cross country and track in college.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? ~25 years

  2. What’s your handicap or normal score? Currently 3.2

  3. What do you love about golf?  I love the creativity of it. Every shot is unique and you can craft each one differently. Being outside is also a bonus.

  4. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? The approach really appeals to me. I've been following along via Instagram for a while, but decided to actually be a contributor and not just consumer. 

  5. Do you already know any other Spies? Not yet!

  6. Where are you from? From southeast Kansas, but currently residing in Durham, NC

  7. What is your home course? The Preserve at Jordan Lake in Chapel Hill, NC

  8. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  There are a ton of incredible golf courses in the area/within a reasonable drive. Unfortunately, far too many courses struggle with course maintenance because of our climate. Our summers just a bit too warm for Bentgrass and most courses don't want to use Bermuda (and I suppose our winters are sometimes a bit too cold for it, but that's debatable).

  9. What do you do for a living?  The easiest way to describe it would be 'corporate trainer.'

  10. How’d you pick your user name?  Just my name...

One of my favorite courses is Lonnie Poole (NCSU) though my best score came at Finley (UNC). Golf in the Research Triangle is so much fun.

I live just down the road from Finley and they run a lot of specials on GolfNow and GroupGolfer (and sometimes Groupon!) so I've played it quite a bit. The best tip I would give to anyone about to play Finley is: every putt is straight. 😄 But I also used to work at NC State, so I've made a couple loops at Lonnie Poole. It's a great course with two VERY different 9s. (There's also a great Arnie story about Lonnie Poole, but that's for another time.)
