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

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing golf since I was 11 years old, so 27 years. I should be a lot better now that I'm saying it out loud. My introduction to golf was an old set of tommy armours and a brass putter, and a persimmon driver. In order to play I had to walk 5 miles through the rocky hills of the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I would come out of the forrest onto the 9th hole of, I believe, the silver course and I would play that hole continuously. My Handicap currently is sitting at 12.2 and has fluctuated from 7.5 to 13. 

  2. What do you love about golf? I love the constant give and take. It is the most rewarding and the most cruel sport in the world which requires you to constantly grind to get where you want to be, and I love that. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I have read several product reviews and I love the honesty. It has helped me make better decisions on golf equipment instead of going with what is popular. I don't currently know any other spies but I'm sure that will change. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I am from Baton Rouge, Louisiana originally, but I currently live in Leland, North Carolina. My home course is Magnolia Greens Golf Plantation. 

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing is that we can play year round for the most part. The worst thing is that we can play year round. I know that doesn't make sense but I believe that having an "off season" is more beneficial to ones game. 

  6. What do you do for a living? I am an IT specialist in the banking industry.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? I was lucky enough to find a set of Taylormade TP smoke Forged irons, which are rare I'm told, for a steal and they are the best clubs I've ever played. So my user name is my name and the clubs I currently play.

Good afternoon My name is Jeremy Dubay and I was from Maine, but now live in NC.

 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? This is the 35th year since I first picket up a club, but only really played about 20 of those years (first wife hated golf). I'm currently a 6.3

  2. What do you love about golf? Getting out and walking, challenging myself every time I go out.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I like the information about everything golf. It's a one stop shop so to speak

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Pinehurst, NC. No home course, but I play a local 9 since it's only $14, but if I buy a 10 play, it's only $10 per nine. 

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? I'm in Pinehurst, so that's the best. The worst is that there isn't really a good 9 hole course or weekday 9 hole league (not that I've found yet)

  6. What do you do for a living? IT professional for a place in Maine. Covid forced me to work from home, and they let me keep my job when I moved

  7. How’d you pick your user name? First name, last Initial. Not too inventive

When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 6.3 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.

My son is moving to Louisville to start his medical residency. I’ll probably be up there more in the next 4-5 years than I’ve ever thought possible. What part of town are you in?

Welcome! I’ve got a good buddy who’s a member at Memphis National, I’ve played there once or twice. Germantown Commissary might be the best restaurant in America. (One man’s opinion...)

That’s a nice area. If you visit him, there is a place right by the zoo called oskars. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in town... they serve sliders, which can scare some people off... but I’ve tried most of the menu and all the options are really good.

they also host a Nordic heavy metal night if you want to get real crazy.

Hello everyone my name is Todd, glad to be part of the forum & to hopefully learn a few things.

How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I played a little in the early 2000s & just didn’t have the right mindset yet. I recently picked it back up because my 5 year old is absolutely obsessed with golf.  I’m still scoring in the 100s. 

What do you love about golf? What I love most is how much my son loves it. I find it impossible to perfect & now that I have a little more patience I’m learning to love that aspect as well  

What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I found this site watching videos on YouTube. 

Where are you from? What is your home course? I live in Brandon, FL a suburb of Tampa. There are tons of golf courses in the area but I wouldn’t say I have a home course yet. 

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing is the ability to play year round. The worst thing would have to be the humidity most of the year. Everyone wants the earliest tee time available. 

What do you do for a living? I work in product support for a fishing company. 

How’d you pick your user name? My user name is an abbreviation of my name.

I’ve been playing golf for about 18 years.  I’m a 2 handicap as long as beer isn’t involved lol. I’m in mt. Washington KY just outside Louisville there’s a lot of good courses around here. I found my golf spy reading reviews on the net and it seemed like a good place to join. I love that golf is never ending, no matter how good or bad I play I always have something to work on and tinker with. I do HVAC service mostly commercial/industrial. My name is Craig and my uncle started calling me crane 25 or 30 years ago and it stuck, I raced motocross growing up and my number was 263.

How long jave i been playing? Roughly 28 years ( 33 yr old ). My dad started taking me when i was 4. Unofficial handicap +5

What do i love about golf? Everything! There's so much to it. The deeper one dives into golf the more they find the beauty of the game and it's parallels to ones life. 

What brings me to golfspy? Product reviews and the forum community on specific equipment.

Where am i from? A tiny town called Wagarville in south Alabama. For anyone familiar with Mobile, it's about an hour north. My home course would be the Pines of Chatom but the course is pretty much a swamp so i try and play the courses in Mobile more often and the RTJ at Magnolia Grove is my favorite. Always in great shape. 

 

Best and worst about golf in my area? The best is being able to play year round minus a week of cold weather here and there or a hurricane. The worst part, for me, is having nicer courses to play nearby. Have to travel at least an hour to a nicer course. Also, the damn heat in the summer. When it gets summer here, golf gets fairly miserable no matter the course just because of the heat/humidity. 

 

What do i do for a living? I'm a supervisor at a stainless steel mill in the melt shop. I get to play with lava on a daily basis pretty much. May have had our metal in some of your iron heads possibly. 

 

How'd i come up with my username? Nickname that i can't remember exactly how i got stuck with.

Hello all!

I live in the Memphis, Tennessee/Germantown area and am returning to the game after a 20 year hiatus. Just finished a 5 year stint at the West Cancer Clinic and have been released in great health! Being 58 years old, I better get going. 🙂
 

Used to be a good golfer, not great but decent, and just started taking lessons to get ready to return to the links. Need to replace my old clubs - Ping Eye2’s - and am considering the new Ping 425’s. 
 

A little nervous about playing my first round after such a layoff, but my golf coach was impressed with how I am swinging the club, so maybe it is unfounded.

Looking forward to reading and learning from you all.

 

Be blessed!
