I have been playing golf for about 30 years but more recently since I retired about 8 years ago.  Since I traveled extensively

I played on weekends weather permitting.  My 13 handicap was a low as an 8 but who's counting?  I enjoy the outdoors

and friendly competition and golf gives me both.  But more importantly it challenges one to strive for improvement. 

I found MYgollfspy while doing driver shaft research and loved the concept and unbiased research.  I have forwarded the 

website address to several of my buddies.  I live in Myrtle Beach and I quit the country club because I play with two groups that

change courses every week, so I have no "home course".  The best thing about golf in Myrtle Beach is the cost and the worst 

thing is the snowbirds who flock to the area.  Guess you can't have one without the other.  I picked my user name because that

is what the area is noted for, with regards to golf. Some call this area the red neck riviera but with over 2000 restaurants, miles 

of beach and hundreds of entertainment venues I call it home.  Have a good one.

I have never had a fitting from them, but they’re consistently ranked in the top places in the state for club fittings. Definitely a legit place to have it done. Great team there and great facility.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  I've been playing since around the 5th grade probably.  Made the JV team by 7th grade, quit baseball and never looked back.  My average score these days is probably 80.  In my high school days I got down to about a 2 handicap.  Now I have a wife and toddler so the playing time is just a bit more limited.

  2. What do you love about golf?  I love a lot of things about it.  It is a game that tests you mentally.  It is a game of integrity.  Only game where you call penalties on yourself.  You can play it your whole life.  There is always something to work on or tinker with and room for improvement.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  Don't know any other spies.  I'm a bit of a gear nerd and naturally stumbled upon My Golf Spy by reading reviews of equipment.  Mainly putters.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?  I'm from Greenville, SC originally but have lived in Charlotte, NC the past 10 years and have no desire to ever leave.  I grew up on Fox Run Country Club in Simpsonville, SC.  I don't have a home course here in Charlotte.  My buddies and me just bounce around to different public courses.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  The best thing about our area is you can pretty much play year round.  The winter days may be cold, but the courses are open and we usually don't get any snow.  The worst thing about Charlotte is probably how crowded the good public courses get.  Unless you go far from the city or to a goat track you are probably going to have a 5 hour round.  Golf is getting to be too long for the casual golfer on a weekend round in my opinion.

  6. What do you do for a living?  I'm in sales, I sell industrial process equipment.  It gets me out of the office and I'm able to play some different courses around the Carolinas if I have time.

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  Nothing creative, just my name so I could remember it.

Greetings fellow duffers! My name is MJ. I've been swinging a club since the age of 4 and learned the game in Western Kentucky. I played competitively up until about sophomore year of college and now just like to enjoy the game at my own pace. I've spent time as an Assistant Golf Pro at a public course and volunteer for the local First Tee program, probably play about 20-30 rounds a year now.

The game has always been an important part of my life. Learning the sport from my mom and dad at a young age, I've always cherished the traditions and history of the game. I currently play at about a 7 handicap (young toddlers have kept me from the practice range ;) and am still in search of my first ace.

I stumbled across the forum in a random Google search and hope to just share some good golfversation. I get a little stir crazy for golf in the winter months - as opportunities to play aren't as plentiful as I'd like in Western KY. I work in digital marketing and web analytics, but hope to find my way back into the golf industry someday.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing golf right at 11 years. My handicap is right around a 7. Typically runs a little higher in the colder months and a little lower as it warms up. 

  2. What do you love about golf? Everything. Competition, the camaraderie, hanging out with the fellas, drinking a few cold ones, relaxation, time away from work, the difficulty of the game, the beauty of the game, beautiful courses, strategy in a good round, pulling off a tough shot, team events, and just overall fun of the game. That one shot that keeps you coming back, time after time.  

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Stumbled upon the twitter account and have begun to delve into the site more and more for equipment advice and various other information on the game. I do not know any other folks on here yet. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I live in Easley, SC, just south of Greenville. I don't have a home course that I am a member of but play probably 50% of my golf at Pebble Creek CC as well as about 10-15 others in the area. 

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Overall weather is probably the best thing as year round play is pretty typical. Heat is probably the worst part in the summers, we typically have about 2-3 months of 90+ temps with very high humidity.

  6. What do you do for a living? I am an estimator/project manager for a commercial construction company. 

  7. How’d you pick your user name? It is the same handle I use for most of my social media accounts and is easy to remember.

Good morning, everyone,

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Though I started at age 8, it was start-stop over the decades until the mid-2000's. I've been playing regularly since 2007.

  2. What do you love about golf?  Every day and every shot is unique. Plus, I love the ideal that if you play golf, you're my friend.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? MyGolfSpy has had my email for awhile and I enjoy reading the articles. I love the honest assessments. I'm afraid I don't know any other Spies. If I do, I'm unaware.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I'm from Anniston, Alabama, and my home course is Pine Hill CC.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best is that you can play almost year-round.  The worst is that it can get awfully hot and humid at times.

  6. What do you do for a living? I'm a business professor.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? 2 of my favorite apostles.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?    I started playing golf around the age of 12 and I'm 34 now, so just over 20 years.  I don't have an official handicap but I usually shoot in the mid to low 80's. 

  2. What do you love about golf?  The good weather is probably the best part of golf.  Being outside in the warmth and sunshine can't be beat.  Plus nothing feels better than when you finish a hole knowing each shot you took on that hole felt perfect and you got rewarded with a birdie. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  I like to read about the new and upcoming equipment and what's out there that can help improve my game.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?  I'm originally from Pittsburgh, PA but now live in Raleigh, NC.  I don't have a "home course" but as I'm still kind of new to Raleigh, I've been trying to travel around and play as many of the public courses as possible.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Prices can be expensive for the quality/condition of the course.  I feel like back in Pittsburgh a great public course in excellent spring/summer conditions would cost about $55 bucks.  Here in Raleigh, I feel like that's the cost of the "lower end" public courses and if you want to play a course that's in great shape you'll have to shell out $80+

  6. What do you do for a living?  I work in the compliance department of a specialty eating disorder health system that started in North Carolina and has since expanded to several states. 

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  My last name and my hockey number from when I was in high school

  1. I've been playing golf for a long time, 25 plus years.  Id say I really started playing around 13 (Turn 39 this year) , in the local Augusta Area Junior Golf Tournaments.  Never came close to a leader board though.  Yes I've been to the Masters.  My handicap is as low as its been ever - 3.8.  My average score this year so far is 78.

  2. Why do I like it?  Honestly, because I'm relatively good at it.  There's always a goal to set and achieve.  The goal this year is to shoot 72. 

  3. Why MyGolfSpy? Basically I'm a data and equipment nerd.  Half of my clubs are Most Wanted.  

  4. Originally from Augusta, GA.  Live in Columbia, SC now and play at Spring Valley County Club.

  5. The best thing and worst thing is the Proximity to Augusta and Myrtle Beach.  Golf is dog crap in Columbia compared to Augusta.  The NICEST club in Columbia is no where close to, heck even the County Course (Bartram Trail) in the Augusta Area.  We're about two and a half hours from Myrtle - where golf is plentiful and cheap.

  6. I own an e-commerce company.  

  7. AIM

New to the thread game here, but looking forward to engaging with other golfers in the area.  Recently had an opportunity to play Pinehurst No. 2, Forest Creek, and Tobacco Road in NC.  An amazing golf trip, looking forward to more in the future.

 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  Been playing for about 17 years now, my handicap matches that stretch of years.

  2. What do you love about golf?  Everything, form the architecture, to the competition amongst pals, but most importantly that feeling when you get when you strike it pure. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  The intel you get on new equipment, courses, just a great place for information.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?  Tampa, Fl.  Play a number of places locally.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? There's lots to choose from, but the varying conditions of courses make them a bit inconsistent at times.

  6. What do you do for a living? Sales

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  No particular method
