I am 35 years old and have been playing golf ever since I can remember. Currently I’m a +2 handicap. 

I love golf because you are outside and in the beauty’s of nature. As my love has grown it’s a way for me to spend quality time with my kids. 

I followed mygolfspy through Instagram and loved the reviews and it was a way of seeing what new equipment is out there. 

I am from Greensburg, KY. I have played at Green County CC my whole life. It’s a very short old style 9 hole golf course. 

In my area golf is very affordable. I’ve been fortunate to have traveled the US and see what golf cost and membership around my area varies from around $500-$3000 a year at various courses. With that being said it can be the downfall of golf in my area. You have to travel to find a well manicured course with length. Also weather plays a factor in how much golf you can play in a years time. 

I work at a sawmill. 

Ny user name is my initial and last name with my birth year.

How long have I been playing golf?  I have played golf since my senior year of high school.  That would be 52 years now.  I have had a handicap as low as 6 and as high as, well, now 14.  Hope to get back to 10 to 12 this summer.

What do I love about golf?  Everything.  Mainly, I love the competitive nature of the game.  Competing with my friends, the course, the weather, all of it.

I saw an article on MYGolfSpy several years ago and found it on line.  I have been an avid follower ever since.

I live in Athens, Al and play most of my golf at Pt. Mallard in Decatur, Al.  I like to play courses all over the region though and try to get to Myrtle Beach for a golf outing when I can.

I love golf all the time so everything is my favorite thing about golf.  My pet peeve about golf here is "Fivesomes". 

I am retired and play golf 3 to 4 times a week--more when my wife will let me.

My user name is my last + first initial + my number in football 50 years ago.  I know sad!!

 

Glad to be here.

How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I've been playing golf seriously for about 4 years now, but before then I played once or twice a year. My handicap hovers around 2-4 when I get to practice. 

What do you love about golf? I love that there is always room for improvement. I've never played a round of golf and felt that I hit every shot or every putt as good as I could have so I like the chase of always trying to get better. 

What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? The non-biased reviews make MyGolfSpy completely different and gives as accurate representation of the best clubs for any golfer. 

Where are you from? What is your home course? Im from Lexington, SC but I currently am I sophomore engineering student at UAH in Huntsville, AL. My home course is the Country Club of Lexington, but when im at school I play wherever I can find the best online deal at. 

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing is that there is a good number of courses near me, the worst thing is that as a college student I don't get to play as much as I would like so a membership somewhere is not worth it, so I have to pay usually around $30-$40 anytime I want to play. 

What do you do for a living? I hope to one day graduate with my mechanical engineering degree, and hopefully work for a golf company doing R&D. 

 How’d you pick your user name?  Its just my name with an underscore after it.

What's up guys. Name is Mike - I'm the co-host of the Chasing Scratch podcast and just found this site thanks to @GolfSpy MPR

Been playing golf for 27 years and my current handicap is 6.1. I love everything about golf except slow play and stroke+distance penalties. I live in North Carolina, I'm a PING iron loyalist, and I just started a semi-plutonic relationship with a new Bettinardi putter named Cassandra.

Welcome to the MGS Forums, Mike! Found your podcast most of the way through last season, so I got to binge listen to it over a couple weeks. Waiting for each episode now is harder 🙂

Given what I've heard from you and Eli, you've found the right forum. Most of us are similarly neurotic about golf, and don't take ourselves too seriously. Looking forward to your contributions here.

How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Been playing since I was about 11. I am near scratch. HCP is usually between 0 and 2. 

What do you love about golf? So hard to answer that with any brevity. Golf is such a huge part of who I am. I love to compete. I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes from working on the game, seeing improvement, then successfully putting it into play in a competitive setting. I love the solitary nature of it. All the credit and all the blame only to yourself.

What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I got hooked by the recent golf ball analysis. The folks who run this deal really seem to know their stuff.

Where are you from? What is your home course? Originally from MA but have been living in the Myrtle Beach area most of my adult life. Like most Myrtle Beach residents, I don't really have one home course. I'm either playing in tournaments or at any number of different places with my buddies.

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Certainly the year-round golf season is great. I guess I miss the atmosphere of the muni where I grew up. The mission of the golf course was to serve the local community. By contrast, here in Myrtle Beach it's just all about making money off the tourists. Nothing really wrong with that I guess, but it lacks that sense of community that I grew up with.

What do you do for a living? Software support and implementation for GolfNow

How’d you pick your user name? College nickname due to my initials: PP.

Fellow 'gawlf' enthusiasts - always happy to share space and place w lovers of the greatest game ever played!

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Picked it up seriously around 2000 

  2. What do you love about golf? It's the ultimate challenge - how can a ball that doesn't even move and allows you to hit it while stationary still be so maddening and yet exhilarating in the same round? It gives you the highest highs and lowest lows, so it really prepares you for real life!

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I actually don't - have seen requests for product testing so finally joined.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Melbourne, FL area (close to where they launch all the rockets). Play all over, but probably Viera East more than anywhere else.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? It's hard to pick anything bad about golf in FL! Maybe the few weeks when they core the greens, but that's not much to complain about when you literally can play 365 days of the year! I guess a legit complaint is we go thru more gloves and grips than elsewhere! 🙂 

  6. What do you do for a living? Pastor

  7.  How’d you pick your user name? last name then first name, but most people say it suits who i am!

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  I started playing in college and was hooked. I played almost a lot for about a decade and got down to a 6 handicap, but then career and family took off, and I have played once or twice a year for the past 10 years. I am just getting back into golf seriously after moving onto a golf course and my kids getting old enough to play, and have been shooting in the upper 90's. I haven't played enough yet to really say I have a handicap, but I hope to change that over the next several months.

  2. What do you love about golf? I love the way golf can take over your thoughts. During my hours on the course, I am able to just think golf and not everything else. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I love learning about equipment, and so as I am getting back into the game, I am doing a bunch of research. I am still playing all of my Callaway equipment from 2007, so I am ready to update soon.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? From east of Atlanta in Monroe, GA. I just moved into a house on the 12th hole of Providence Golf Club, so that will be my home course.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best -- year-round play. Worst -- the slow pace of play.

  6. What do you do for a living? Middle school principal

I’ve already written a new member introduction last year when I joined but I’ll add some more information about myself
How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I’ve been playing for about 6 years and usually shoot low to mid 80s
What do you love about golf? I love being outdoors and being able to spend some time with friends or family enjoying a round of golf. I’m very competitive and take the game seriously but I also like to just be out on the course relaxing and breathing the fresh air.
Where are you from? What is your home course? I’m from a small town in northwest Georgia called Cedartown. I play all three courses in my small town and also try to play as many decent courses within a 50 mile radius of where I live. There are some beautiful courses around here.
What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing in my opinion is the weather is good for golf almost year round and also the fact that in my area there are mountain courses and flat courses and mixtures of the two. The worst part is probably during the middle of summer when it’s 100 degrees outside and almost too hot to play.
What do you do for a living? I am a production technician at a chemical manufacturing plant.
How’d you pick your username? Pretty simple, my name and first initial of my last name.
If anyone in my area wants to meet up and play a round of golf just shoot me a message on here and we can work something out. Hit em straight!
