  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?   I have been playing for about 30 years, my dad started playing when i was 10, and he took me a few times.  No official handicap, it's around 21.  I would like to shoot around 90, usually between 90 and 100

  2. What do you love about golf?  I like the camaraderie and laughing with friends and my dad 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  I have been researching new clubs and club fitting, and the forums came up via internet search

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?  I live in Clermont, FL, west of Orlando.  My "home course" would probably be Kings Ridge in Clermont

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Best things - I can play year round.  Worst things - it is very HOT in summer, and most of the courses are flat and similar

  6. What do you do for a living?  I am a software/IT engineer

  7. How’d you pick your user name? it is my first and last name together

Recently retired and moved from Florida to Tennessee, as you can imagine going from the flats of Florida to the Mountains of Tennessee has been quite an adjustment.  First few rounds adversely effected my handicap mostly because of side-hill lies and slopes.  Since, though things have adjusted a bit and my game is starting to return to where it once was.  Always been just a weekend golfer with the boys but since retiring I have again found some of the passion that first got me interested in the game.

I've had been hitting a Ping 400, driver for a while but because of a strange noise in the head have brought my white Taylor Made driver out of retirement.

Welcome to Tennessee. I enjoy playing in the Crossville area when I get a chance. Mountain golf does take some getting used to. Lots of uphill, downhill, side hill lies. But for the most part, all the courses in your area are always kept in good condition. It is the golf capital of TN!

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I’ve played off and on since college, most years playing 15-20 rounds until my kids were born and then I played less than 20 rounds in 5 years. I moved from PA to Upstate SC in 2019 and golf became a way to meet new people and a year round option. Now I’m obsessed and set a goal of 40 rounds in 2021 after 35 in 2020. My goal was always to break 100 and to have fun, but now I’ve set my sights on breaking 80 (my low round of 84 has been done 3 times). My handicap was 23-24 early in 2020 and I’m down to just under 16 now with a goal to hit single digits  

  2. What do you love about golf? It’s a great way to get outside, get some exercise and be competitive. Plus my kids are starting to take an interest in it after seeing me practice and play so much lately. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? A friend sent me the link after MGS was featured on ESPN. I don’t think I know any others.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I I’ve near Spartanburg SC, and play the most at Links O’Tryon in Campobello, SC.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best thing is that I can play year round. Worst is that golf courses are busy year round.

  6. What do you do for a living? I work in construction safety

  7. How’d you pick your user name? I love mechanical watches.

Hello all, I'm new to the forum but pumped to be apart of it! Let's get it!

How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal scoreAbout twice a year (fathers day and dads birthday) since 9th grade , so about 12-13 years now up until this year. I've played maybe 20 rounds and I've really (finally) had the time and financial means to invest in the sport. At this point addiction isn't out of the question. Unfortunately I've horribly inconsistent.  I've shot an 83 and 114 in the same week. 

What do you love about golf? Ahhh where to begin.. to list a few , I love the concept of thinking about how such microscopic differences equate to such drastic results  . Millimeters and fractions of degrees equating to yards offline and vice versa. Pure admiration and respect for talent  as well. I love analyzing what changes cause what results and then applying it to improve(hopefully) . There's no better feeling than flushing one!

What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? The analysis and testing fuels my curiosity.  Plus, the podcast is gold. Wealth of infotainment 

Where are you from? What is your home courseThomasville, NC winding creek is my most played course,  it's close to work and home. If I go into work early I can sneak a bucket of balls in on the way home.

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? predicting the forecast is both, 90% chance of rain might mean you get the course to yourself.  But I'm not going to say I haven't continued playing in the pouring rain 

What do you do for a living? I'm a professional towel boy , sales and service; although ,we prefer to go by "Healthcare linen specialists"

How’d you pick your user name? Easiest to remember as it was one of many nick names. It's also my Instagram username, feel free to follow!

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I went to the range with my dad as a kid a few times (whenever a vendor put on a tournament that he played in), then I started playing from time to time in the occasional charity tournament through my work after graduating. Caught the bug, now I’ve been playing pretty consistently for around a year and a half. My current handicap is a 17.4. 
     
  2. What do you love about golf? I enjoy the challenge of the game, being outside, and the social aspect. I also enjoy the fact that there will always be something to work on. My worst rounds make me want to come back and play the next day more than anything. 
     
  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? I’ve always found the research to be fascinating and really value the data-centric mentality they approach things with. 
     
  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I’m from Greer, South Carolina. My home course is Paris Mountain CC, but I also play quite a bit at Greer CC. 
     
  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Being able to play year round, and the variety of courses in the upstate is really nice. The heat in the summer can be rough. 
     
  6. What do you do for a living? I work in preconstruction for a commercial casework manufacturer. 
     
  7. How’d you pick your user nameLive in SC, my name is Jake, and I was born in 94.
