  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  I've just been playing 2 years now, my normal scores are 90-93, and my Handicap is around 18-19.

  2. What do you love about golf?  I love getting out, meeting new people, having fun despite those few bad shots, and how challenging the game is.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  I've seen several post show up on my FB feed and was encouraged to check the site out after going and having a club fitting for new irons with Bob Vansweden.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?  I live in clearwater, florida, my home course is Wentworth golf club in Tarpon Springs.  But I'm always looking and trying to play at new courses.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  The best thing is year round golf and plenty of quality courses within a 15-30 minute drive, as well as good practice facilities near me.  The worst thing is when the snow birds come down, they fill up the course and play extremely slow and don't care about other golfers on the course.  This includes not filling divots and repairing greens.

  6. What do you do for a living? I'm in sales in the mortgage business.

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  Muggsy Bogues



Hi mugsy101, I live in Wesley Chapel and Pebble Creek is my home Club. So we both belong to the same group. We should get together soon.

I am Tom, a.k.a. Putterboy23. I am 67 and have been playing golf for 52 years. My handicap has been as low as a 2,  currently a 6. Most rounds are in the 70's. I play Mizuno JPX 1000 irons, TaylorMade RBZ driver, TaylorMade SIM woods (3,5,7), and Vokey wedges (52,58), and use a Rife Mallet putter. I am a Butch Harmon and Dave Ledbetter golf teaching disciple. I look forward to meeting and discussing golf issues with members of the forum.

Fixed my forum name.

Choose wisely, and do not be afraid to be great!

I’ve been playing golf since 1969 (6 years old). My grandfather would load up the grandkids in the bed of his pickup truck and take 6-8 of us to the driving range often! 
Handicap-13

The endless challenge and impossibility of perfection, until you hit that certain shot....that sense of accomplishment each time you pure one is high in the “what I like about golf” list. But  I’ve also been very fortunate to be around great people no matter where I play. The sportsmanship and integrity, along with just having fun with good people takes top spot.

My son sent me a link and it caught my attention. He’s not a member, but he thought I’d like the forum and folks. 
I’m from Vero Beach FL. Home course is Pointe West CC. 
Best- There are many excellent public courses in our area. Also, reciprocal play privileges May-Oct at superior private clubs. The golf community is great. 
Worst- We have a few deluges from time to time that will close even the best draining courses for a short time. We also seem to have some folks who drag their feet across greens and can’t bend over far enough to fix a ball mark. So, all things considered, it’s still great!

We own a small family business in the swimming pool industry with about 20 employees.

Username? LOL

 Hi everyone.  Thanks for welcoming me to the forum.  I'm lucky enough to live in South Florida, so I play golf (as does my wife) year-round.  Love the game, and love being outside. 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  Current handicap 14.4

  2. What do you love about golf? The beauty and the challenge.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I really don't know anyone here.  I enjoy reading reviews by the members and thought I might help someone else out by providing some of my experience. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? The closest one would be Osprey Point in Boca Raton.  We golf there about 8 months a year.  It's a Palm Beach County public course, but is jammed in the winter months.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Golf gets expensive in the winter, and with all the snowbirds, it gets very crowded and slow.  You have to pick less popular spots over the winter for a quicker round.  The good news is we have options.  The courses here are well maintained and we have a lot of wildlife.   

  6. What do you do for a living? Technology sales & business development.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? Easy - my first name and last initial.  Not too creative I know.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I’ve been playing in one way or another for most of my life, always recreationally. About 2 years ago I started to get obsessed with golf and have started playing about once or twice a week. I’m on a quest to break 90. Most of the time I’m shooting around 100. 

  2. What do you love about golf? It’s a no excuses experience. If it’s a good shot or bad shot, you did it, regardless of the circumstances. Also, the camaraderie. You get to experience the sport with all kinds of people.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? MGS is my go to for reliable info about golf equipment. It’s the most trustworthy source. Most of my golf buddies are on MGS.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I live in Lakeland, FL and my home course is Cleveland Heights Golf Course, the local municipal course.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing is being able to play year round. Also, there are tons of great courses within an hour and a half drive. The worst? There’s only bad stuff if you make it bad. I’m all good. 

  6. What do you do for a living? I’m a Residential Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty. 

  7. How’d you pick your user name? I just use my name. I feel weird picking an alias. I’d rather people know it’s me.

Hey everyone, my name is Brandon and I just joined up with mygolfspy a few days ago. I am 33 and just started playing golf about a year ago. I live in Charlotte, NC and typically shoot in the mid 90s. Joined up on mygolfspy because I have become completely engrossed in the sport since starting and wish to learn as much as i can.

NC is pretty warm year round so golf is playable as long as its dry... My usual course I play is olde sycamore. To me golf is an escape from the stress of everyday life where I can focus on making myself a better, healthier person and enjoy life in the process. If anyone is in the area hit me up to go play a round together!

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?

    I started playing when I was 12, but had long lapses and never improved much.  I enjoyed spending time with my dad and brothers on the course and smoking cigars.  My normal handicap ranges between 101 and 110 right now.  Very inconsistent off the tee and taking lessons to help my game.  Last round I had 11 penalty strokes from going OB off the tee.  
  2. What do you love about golf?

    Where does one begin?  The internal struggle to play better?  Being outside in well manicured landscapes?  Spending time with my wife or friends? I love it all, and am always looking for ways to bring more golf into my life.  
  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?

    The reports on the call away golf balls, don’t know any other Spies.
  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?

    I reside in Charleston, South Carolina.  Home Course is Coosaw Creek Country Club - although I love playing the Ocean Course and Daniel Island
  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?

    The best thing is being able to play golf during the ‘winter’.  There hasn’t been a month I haven’t golfed during this winter, topping my winter season with a couple of rounds on Kiawah Island.  
    The worst thing is - the heat in the summer.  I’m originally from New Orleans, but heat is heat... you never get used to it.
  6. What do you do for a living?

    I am currently an IT Project Manager for the world’s greatest aerospace company.  Wish I had a job that was more tangent to golf, but I get paid enough to fund my hobby’s.
  7. How’d you pick your user name?

    This was my username given to me nearly 15 years ago when I first started my undergrad, the school lets you keep your college email address.  Always thought it was simple and chances of it being used is very slim.

New to forum.  Hope I get this right.

 

  1. How long have you been playing golf?  Played a little in my twenties.  No time, no money.  Picked up the game almost thirty years later.  One of the best decisions I ever made.

  2. What’s your handicap or normal score?  Hcp index is 19.9 at the moment.  Hit 14.5 at one point last year.  Then decided to "fix" my swing.

  3. What do you love about golf?  Is a wonderfully focused distraction!

  4. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? I'm always looking for some sort of info.  Got an email about testing a new shaft.  I enjoy learning about some of the more technical stuff regarding golf. 

  5. Do you already know any other Spies? Not that I am aware of.

  6. Where are you from? What is your home course?  In Georgia little over a year now.  Play mostly at Bradshaw Farms.

  7. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Best: Being able to play all year. (Came down from New England).  Worst:  I've never played anywhere with so much water, creeks , ponds, lakes,  if it's wet it's here.

  8. What do you do for a living? Happily retired 3 years. (Was a software tech/sales support guy)

  9. How’d you pick your user name?  Term picked up from an old Kaizen class from the eighties.

 Hi everyone.  Thanks for welcoming me to the forum.  I'm lucky enough to live in South Florida, so I play golf (as does my wife) year-round.  Love the game, and love being outside. 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  Current handicap 14.4

  2. What do you love about golf? The beauty and the challenge.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I really don't know anyone here.  I enjoy reading reviews by the members and thought I might help someone else out by providing some of my experience. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? The closest one would be Osprey Point in Boca Raton.  We golf there about 8 months a year.  It's a Palm Beach County public course, but is jammed in the winter months.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Golf gets expensive in the winter, and with all the snowbirds, it gets very crowded and slow.  You have to pick less popular spots over the winter for a quicker round.  The good news is we have options.  The courses here are well maintained and we have a lot of wildlife.   

  6. What do you do for a living? Technology sales & business development.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? Easy - my first name and last initial.  Not too creative I know.

Hey y'all,

Joined a while back but never had time to participate in the forums. Hoping to be more active. Some details to get to know me:

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Right now I'm up to a 19 (sad!) but I was an 11 a few years back. Working back towards it.

  2. What do you love about golf? Being engrossed in the game and trying to play the smartest round possible.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? The content & the community. I don't know anyone here yet.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Louisville, KY. Don't really have a home course, play all over.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Long rounds are the worst. 5 hour rounds kill me. The people playing golf in KY are, by and large, wonderful though.

  6. What do you do for a living? Sell fried chicken online.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? It's my gmail 🤷‍♂️

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
    I played golf off and on as a kid and got more into it once I started college. I only went 5-10 times a year even then because of my commitment to playing baseball in college. After graduating for the last 3 years I’ve gotten much more into it and play around twice a month. I don’t have an official handicap but my estimate is it’s sitting right around 16-18 .

  2. What do you love about golf? 
    I love being able to stay competitive and really compete with myself. It requires all focus and energy and rewards and punishes you accordingly.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? 
    I’m here to learn about the game and the equipment to help me improve my game. I like the idea of having a support system and people to consult and help when possible.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? 
    I’m from Leesville, South Carolina. I don’t necessarily have a home course, but I most often bounce around between Pine Ridge CC, Midland Valley CC, and Persimmon Hill GC.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? 
    The best thing is the weather. It gets hot but some days it’s still tolerable and winter golf is not an issue for the most part. The worst thing is the constant hard pan bunkers. Apparently good sand is hard to come by in SC... You would think otherwise. Greens also tend to get scorched at public courses.

  6. What do you do for a living? 
    I teach middle school and coach high school baseball.

  7. How’d you pick your user name 
    My first name and my late younger brother’s/my senior year in college baseball number.

Hey guys! Wanted to formally introduce myself since I am gonna try to be active on these forums as much as I can. I figured I would answer some of the questions posted in the topic post. Here we go: 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?

    1. I just recently picked golf back up about 10 months ago, I had not played the game since I was 6. My Current HCP is 17.9. 

  2. What do you love about golf?

    1. I love the friendship the game can bring, and how difficult golf can be. I enjoy the struggle to improve and the milestones you can reach in my golf journey.  

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? 

    1. I always came to this website to read up on new equipment and technology introduced to the game and was always fascinated with new clubs and the results they produced. I then noticed that there was a forum within this website, so I figured I would join to have a place to discuss the game of golf.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? 

    1. I am from Orlando, FL but currently living in Merritt Island, FL. My current home course is the Savannahs Golf Course in Merritt Island, FL. 

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?

    1. Best: In FL, golf can be played year round so that's a big positive.

    2. Worst: The slow snowbirds all year round golf brings (no offense), I cannot stand slow play. 5 hour rounds are just not my thing I guess. 

  6. What do you do for a living?

    1. Currently working as a Physical Therapy Tech (pretty much a paid intern)

Thanks for reading. Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe!
