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

Welcome from south central KY. I’m headed to Lexington in a few weeks for work. Any recommendations for a course to play while I’m there?

Hello, new to the forum but been following MGS for a while now.  Figured I'd finally register and hopefully contribute to the conversations a bit.   

 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  Playing about 20 years, GHIN says I'm a 5.5, lately I've been scoring 7-8 over on an average round, gotta keep practicing. 

  2. What do you love about golf?  Many things, but the one thing that keeps me coming back is the endless pursuit of perfection.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Found MGS a while back when looking for equipment reviews

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?  From Raleigh NC, moved to Greensboro.  Home course growing up was Lochmere GC where I was a member, then I worked at MacGregor Downs CC for a while, and now recently joined Sedgefield CC so that will be my new home course.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Best - abundance of great golf courses, many available to the public and for mostly reasonable prices, things are getting more expensive this season.  Worst - humidity

  6. What do you do for a living? Insurance fraud investigations. 

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  I tend to always just used my name/numbers, thought to switch it up for some fun.  I wish I was as cool as the real Carl Spackler.

Thanks!  You may have it worse down in GA with the humidity sometimes, feels like you can swim through the air.  The other morning as soon as I got out of the car for an 8am tee time, my iron heads were completely covered in condensation, that was a sweaty day.

Hey guys, new to the forum but have frequented the site for quite some time. Glad to start getting involved in conversation.  

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I've been playing golf for right about 15 years (only 30 years old so half my life). Handicap hovers from 8-10.

  2. What do you love about golf? It only takes one great shot to bring you back.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I don't know anyone on the website but enjoy the first looks and takes on new products. Buyers guides are very interesting as well.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Im from Columbia, SC. If i was pressed to pick a home course I'd have to say Woodcreek. I've played the most rounds there by far.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best thing is there are tons of golf courses to choose from in a rather short distance. Worst is the heat in the summer! June through August can be unbearable to play!

  6. What do you do for a living? I am a custom golf club fitter and club repairer.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? First Name last Initial

Glad to be a part of the mygolfspy community!

Troy here from south Florida! Let's see I've been playing consistent golf for the past 6 years now (weekly) and I've somehow managed to work my handicap down to a 1.0 with a low round of 68. I typically play low to mid 70s golf with some bad days thrown in as well. Everything about my golf swing is self taught and I probably couldn't get $200 for my set of clubs that I play with. I'm now a firefighter so I still have plenty of time to get out to the course! I'm a former college baseball player so golf seemed like the natural transition for me, pleasure meeting y'all

Good evening everyone!  My name is Brandon and I live/work in the Jacksonville area.

  1. How long have you been playing golf?  I've been playing golf for probably 15 years.

  2. What’s your handicap or normal score? Normal score is in the low-mid 90's, but I just shot an 82 which I'm super happy about.  My friend's been helping me and led me to this site.

  3. What do you love about golf?  It gives me a chance to to be out there either with myself or others, but to just get away from the crap outside, work, hey - family sometimes too, but it gives you some mental 'me time'.

  4. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  Yup, my friend brought me here.

  5. Where are you from? What is your home course?  I'm from Cincinnati, OH but I don't really have a home course.

  6. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  The condition of some of the courses are amazing, and some are downright awful.  How do you have sandtraps ON the green?

  7. What do you do for a living?  Full time husband and father.

  8. How’d you pick your user name?  This is just an old gamer handle from back in the day.  I tried to be witty, but I didn't think SandyBalls was appropriate and I couldn't think of something that someone else didn't already choose!

I have been playing for about 35 years. My current handicap is a 10, although it has been lower in the past. I was away from the game for about 9 years. I'm currently working in Gainesville Florida, but my permanent residence is in Phoenix. I am a club repairer/builder as well. I love to tinker.

Hello all, glad to join and get to know you.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  I've been playing for 40 years and currently carry a 8.2 USGA hdcp.  I am a "from the tips" player at courses under 7,100yds, and from whites above.  Will normally shoot around 78-82.

  2. What do you love about golf?  Golf has been in my life since I was a child.  Grandfather, father, me.  Golf is a game for life.  Golf is a game that mirrors life - good results from bad situations, bad results from perfect conditions...you make your own results.  How you carry yourself on the course after adversity is a reflection of character.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  I have known about the site form some time, but, Eric Apenfels, a PGA instructor at Pinehurst Country Club (my home club) suggested I join.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?  Pinehurst, NC.  Pinehurst CC.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Best things are the selection and diversity of golf in the Pinehurst area.  Worst things are the heat/humidity in the summer, the tourist/resort players teeing off from the tips driving 220yds right off the #1 hole on course #2.

  6. What do you do for a living?  I'm the CEO and founder of marketing firm that specializes in entertainment, motion picture and concert/music festivals.

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  It's my name.  I'm already doxx'ed.  I've got no problem attaching my name to my opinions and statements.

Do you ever go to any of the courses in the area? I am just playing any course when I have time...trying to find a good one in the area.
