Don't forget to check out our Community Map for members close by and course reviews!
https://forum.mygolfspy.com/communitymap/

In addition be sure to do your own course reviews so others know what courses are worth going to and what ones should be avoided if in the area!

https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/49345-2022-mgs-forum-changes/ has a guide as to how to add your marker and course reviews!

So I'm not exactly new but I don't think I've ever done one of these introductions, so I figured now was as good a time as any...

Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida

How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? - I've been playing off and on since sometime in college.  It wasn't until after college that I got really into it and started playing most weekends throughout the summers when it was more affordable to play (we have a hardcore "season" here in southwest FL when rich people from up north flood down here Oct-April and prices get crazy).  At my best my average score was in the mid 80s but that was before a shoulder surgery in 2017 took me out for 6+ months and I've not played as often or as well ever since, despite the shoulder not being a problem any more.  Average score these days is in the mid to upper 90s unfortunately, haha.

What do you love about golf? - The chance to compete and try your best at something that is quite hard.  I was a big team sport guy growing up and don't have many outlets for that competitive fire as an adult.  Golf lets me compete against me and against the course.  Plus, drinking beers outside with people you enjoy spending time with is a great way to spend part of a day!

What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? - As I said in my brief opener, I'm not really knew here but looking to get more involved, we'll see if I can stick to it, haha.  I've appreciated MGS since I first found them on Twitter many years ago for the honest and transparent reviews of golf equipment.

Where are you from? What is your home course? - I'm from right here in southwest Florida, born and raised, second generation (which is rare down here, haha).  Currently I call Estero, FL home and have since 2007 when I bought my house there.  I don't really have a home course, there are so many good ones around here.  I'll play anywhere I can get on as long as it doesn't break the bank.  Old Corkscrew is one of the nicer ones that's close to home but it is a tough one!

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? - I'll try to keep this section as brief as a I can because I could go on and on, haha.  Best things are the ability to play year round and the quantity of courses available, many of them kept in great shape.  Worst thing is the aforementioned season when it becomes really hard to get on a course for less than $100/round and the nicer courses well over $200/round and above.  The other thing that comes with season golf, and really, year round golf here is lack of time between tee times and overcrowded course and 4.5 hr rounds practically every time out despite many courses not allowing walking.  I think walking a round of golf would be great but it's just not done down here as that would require spacing out tee times further than the course will allow as they try their best to get as many people out as possible to make the course a viable option business-wise.  There are likely some private courses (there are many, some extremely exclusive) that allow walking but that's because they rely on membership to cover operating costs and do not need revenue from the actual golfing.

What do you do for a living? - I am a commercial construction project manager

How’d you pick your user name? - Relatively simple, Hammer is a nick-name (born from the fact I was on a bowling team using a ball from the brand Hammer and I through the ball very fast so people just started calling me hammer.  Since I'm in construction I liked it and it has stuck) Hunt is my last name and 64 was my number back in the high school football glory days.

Glad to be here and happy to introduce myself fully finally!

Happy golfing everyone!

Welcome @Hammer_Hunt64!  Agreed SW Florida is a great place for golf but can imagine the influx of "snowbirds" during the winter!

How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Play with my dad when I was a kid but unfortunately he passed away when I was in high school and then playing baseball in college I just lost time to play. Picked it back up a few years ago and now playing weekly and loving it. Probably a true 8-10 Handicap

What do you love about golf? Reminds me of the good times I use to have with my dad playing. Also a live long competitor it is fun to have something I know will constantly challenge my ability and give me reason to improve.

What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Been a long time reader and decided to take the plunge into the forum.

Where are you from? What is your home course? Dandridge Tennessee. Play at quite a few of the local course depending on work so do not have a home course per say.

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? You can golf pretty much year round which is nice but the grasses used around here seem to take a little longer in to spring to start coming back in.

What do you do for a living? Run a commercial laundry facility

How’d you pick your user name? abbreviated name and my baseball number.

My goal every round is bogey golf.  I have shot a 73 a couple of times, but rounds in the 70’s are gems that I enjoy. 

I love to get to spend time with my dad. He got me into golf and I play 75-85% of my rounds with him, he’s 76 and routinely beats his age.

I played all sports as a young man, now golf is the only one left for me.

I live in Lexington, Kentucky, my home course is University Club. I play which ever of the two courses there.  

The wind and rain here can be frustrating, the ability to play golf most all year is nice.  

I work in an automotive manufacturing plant.

Just joined, followed on Twitter forever.  I took 7 years off (played competitively for a while).  Just picked up the new Mizuno Pro 225's, absolutely love them.  Currently in Upstate, SC, hope you meet some cool people and find out what's new.

Mizuno lifer.  Played the MP33's forever then switched to MP 30's when I didn't play as much.  These 225's are crazy pure and forgiving!

I have pretty much always played Mizuno irons until my recent set just to try something out. I've had MP32, MP59, JPX 919 Tour, JPX 921 Forged and Tour, and almost ordered the Mizuno Pro 223's but went Srixon instead.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing Golf since last July, I had a coworker invite me out and was hooked pretty soon after starting. My current handicap is 40.5 but actively taking lessons and working to get that number down.
  2. What do you love about golf? For the most part people with very different skill levels or handicaps can play together and still have a good time. I also enjoy honing my skills at the range or hitting bay and seeing the carryover to my game.
  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I saw L.A.B. Putters post about testing opportunities here and that sparked the initial interest. Since becoming a member of the forum I have enjoyed the vast amount of information on gear that is available from testers and general members alike. 
  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I currently live in St Petersburg Florida, the "Sunshine City" and typically play Bay Palms Golf Complex as my home course. I would play Mangrove Bay more often but it can be difficult to get a tee time.
  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? One of the best things is being able to play all year round near the ocean and having so many courses available to play. I don't know that I can think of a worst thing about playing golf here... outside of maybe the popularity so the courses stay pretty busy, but with so many courses to choose from in the area you can usually find a tee time if you really want to play.
  6. What do you do for a living? I work in the logistics field for the government.
  7. How’d you pick your user name? Not much went into my username... my name is Matt.

Hi all I’m juan aka the golfer dude.  I live in lexington, Kentucky and been playing golf for 40 years.  My club are recently acquired ping eye2+ beryllium copper irons 1-L matching serial numbers.  I had amt white s300 shafts put in them by ping.  I have a taylormade R1 driver and R15 3 wood.  My putter of choose is a cure rx2 and ping b60.  I’m currently working on starting a re-gripping and club repair business in my garage as a little side hustle.  Looking to build a golf simulator also, maybe I’ll find some inspiration in these forums for that.

Hi Everyone!

My name is John and I am new to MyGolfSpy and golf forums in general. I am based out of Orlando Florida and have been playing professionally for a couple of years trying to make my dream of playing on the PGA Tour become a reality. I have my own golf instruction business, JFKgolf, that I devote a lot of time to which subsidizes a lot of the expenses of trying to make the tour.

How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? - I have been playing golf since I was a kid but been doing it competitively since I graduated college (~3 years). I am a +4 handicap at the moment. 

What do you love about golf? - The connections you make on the golf course. Throughout my years of playing whether it is casual or competitive I have met so many different people and over the course of 18 holes you can really get to know someone well. 

What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? - I signed up to be a tester of a couple of products and figured I'd register and check out some of the forums while I am here. Figured it would be a good way to get to know more like-minded & passionate people. 

Where are you from? What is your home course? - I live in Orlando now but am originally from Massachusetts. My current home course is Reunion Resort.

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? - The inconsistent rain, especially during the summer here in Florida can be a bummer. However, it is worth it to be able to play golf year round with the majority of the time having very nice weather. 

What do you do for a living? - Professional Golfer & Coach

How’d you pick your user name? - It is the name of my instruction business.

Thanks,

John Keenan Jr.

What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? - I signed up to be a tester of a couple of products and figured I'd register and check out some of the forums while I am here. Figured it would be a good way to get to know more like-minded & passionate people. 

Where are you from? What is your home course? - I live in Orlando now but am originally from Massachusetts. My current home course is Reunion Resort.

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? - The inconsistent rain, especially during the summer here in Florida can be a bummer. However, it is worth it to be able to play golf year round with the majority of the time having very nice weather. 

What do you do for a living? - Professional Golfer & Coach

How’d you pick your user name? - It is the name of my instruction business.

Welcome, I am on the other side of Florida from you. I may have to make a trip out to Orlando area to play some of your courses though.

Been on the site/forums for a few weeks and I am constantly finding new stuff, so here it goes:

 

1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing golf for 53 years.  Received my first set of starter clubs at 9.  First round was with my grandfather at a course in South Bend, IN named Bowlers golf club.  I don’t have a USGA handicap but normal score is in the 80-85 range.

2. What do you love about golf? I love the smell of the freshly cut grass, that I didn’t have to mow.  I love the difficulty of the game, but you can struggle for 17 holes and hit that one shot where there is no feel in your hands that is just perfect to bring you back.

3.  What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  Honestly, it was a test notification on my Facebook news feed that brought me here.  Have enjoyed the site ever since.  Don’t know any other Spues yet

4. Where are you from? From Lansing, MI but living in Jacksonville FL.  What is your home course?  I don’t have a home course yet, just moved here and may move again.

5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Plenty of courses, more expensive than Michigan.  Worst, some are in bad shape.

6. What do you do for a living? Controller, work at the football stadium.

7. How’d you pick your user name? First name and couldn’t think of a good user name.

A gimme can be best defined as an agreement between two golfers, neither of whom can putt very well.

How long have you been playing golf? Off and on since middle school, got heavy back into the game right before Covid hit. Guessing 12 years in total

What’s your handicap or normal score? No handicap. Have shot anywhere from 74 to 95 this year. Best all time was in high school with a 4 under 68.

What do you love about golf? I use golf as a release of competitive spirit and anger management. 

What brings you to MyGolfSpy? I have always been a gearhead in golf. Found them on Twitter.

Do you already know any other Spies? No...

Where are you from? What is your home course? Clayton, NC. No home course at the moment.

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best is usually weather, never gets too cold for a round in the winter (at least for me). Worst is the humidity during the Summer months and the red clay that's all over the place.

What do you do for a living? Middle School Science and Social Studies Teacher

How’d you pick your user name? Old high school soccer nickname

1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I began playing golf on and off the past couple of years. My handicap is approximately 30.

2. What do you love about golf? Admittedly, I am the self proclaimed “World’s Worst Golfer”, but I make up for my lack of skill with my love of the game! Nothing beats being out on the course with some friends and a cold drink or two just competing trying to post a better round than last time.

3.  What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  I am passionate about the game and always want to improve so what better way than MGS?

4. Where are you from? Currently reside in Birmingham, AL

5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? World class RTJ golf trail is close/ convenient, but the public courses are few and far between with most lacking quality.

6. What do you do for a living? I work in banking/finance.

7. How’d you pick your user name? Goofy and ironic nickname with a pop culture reference .
