  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing golf since I was very young, but took a long break during high school and college where I almost never played. Now I am a local member and play as often as I possibly can. My handicap is currently at 12.9, but usually play closer to a 15 or 16.

  2. What do you love about golf? It is something everyone can do and have some fun with. It is great exercise since I prefer walking, and always having the chance at the next great shot is enjoyable. I have a lot of fun playing in a golf league at my club and the social aspect of golf is a plus.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I do not know any other Spies, but I have been listening to the No Putts Given podcast since the beginning. I finally wanted to get involved and be apart of the community.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Grand Rapids, MI. My home course is Sunnybrook Country Club

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Some of the worst aspects of golf in my region is the weather. Michigan goes from very cold, to very wet, to very hot, to cold and wet again. It also can be very difficult to locate golf balls in fallen leaves and long rough in the Fall. However, being Michigan, the weather can also be one of the best aspects of golf in this region. The summer months can be warm, sunny, and relatively calm with wind. There is also no shortage of golf courses to play and you can always keep things new and interesting.

  6. What do you do for a living? Outside Sales for a global manufacturing company. 

  7. How’d you pick your user name? Simple, it is just my name.

  • How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I've been playing golf most of my life even though I gave it up for about 5 years for baseball. I picked golf back up in college and have loved playing ever sense.  I am inconsistent now that I have kids and don't play as much.  I'm usually between high 80's to low 90's.  

  • What do you love about golf?  I love that you can always get better and the strategy part of the game.  

  • What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I've always read and follow MyGolfSpy but never got into the Forums.  I'm trying to learn more about the game and the new technology.  

  • Where are you from? What is your home course?  I live outside of Cleveland, OH. 

  • What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  We have a great climate 4 months out of the year and a lot of good golf courses.  The worst is of course the winter.  

  • What do you do for a living?  I work in supply chain for a large CPG company. 

  • How’d you pick your user name? I'm not very original so I used my username for when I was in college.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I started playing golf before I can remember. My dad was a single parent, and if he wanted to go out and golf, it meant dragging me along. Eventually he put a putter in my hand and let me wack the ball around, and then I eventually got a junior set of make shift clubs he had laying around. I started playing seriously around 8th grade, and joined the golf team in my small town for high school. Sophomore year I was the 5th spot out of 6 for varsity, and 2nd spot by senior year. At that point I carried a 7 handicap. I gave up after I moved away from my family, and started working and chasing girls. Picked it back up at 28, and 3 years later I’m trying to find my rhythm again. Currently a 14 Handicap.

  2. What do you love about golf? I am not an outdoors type person unless I’m playing a sport. I played Soccer, Golf, and Baseball my whole life. Getting me outside in hot weather for anything other than a sport is a chore for my wife. Now that I’m older and can’t play sports as well as I used too, I began to turn back to golf. It’s also something my Dad can still do, and still enjoys, so it’s one of those cherish moments for me as well. I also intend to do this with my kids, One is currently 2, and Two is in the oven right now. Nothing every beats the sight of a great looking golf hole. The work that went into the grass and layout is always worth every look.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I first discovered MGS from the Ball Test. I then began reading articles, and had no idea a forum existed until minutes ago. I like the informative side of golf a lot. Data has become a weird hobby for me. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I am from a small town in Central Wisconsin. Not a lot going on by us. The type of town with 1 plant the entire town works at. I moved to find better work, and I enjoy city life better than country life. Home course is Chaska in Appleton, WI.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best thing is, if it’s a well maintained course, the grass is always thick, and lush. It’s well kept, and watered properly. The worst is of course, winter, when I can’t play outside of an indoor simulator in our area. The winter can sometimes cause burn on the course as well that will stick around all year.

  6. What do you do for a living? I work in a Pattern shop. We make parts for various foundries around the US. Mostly local though. We work with companies like, John Deere, Toyota, Ford, GMC etc. we have had just about everything come through our shop. Including a Putter. I wasn’t working at the time, but we still have the mold in the shop.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? When I was in high school, and I got my first Xbox 360, I had to create a gamertag. While I was setting it up to my TV, the show Robot Chicken was playing. It was a Star Wars skit where Palpatine gets a call from Vader. You only hear Palpatine talking throughout the skit. At one point he shouts out, “what’s an aluminum falcon?!?” Which in Star Wars is the Millennium Falcon. I randomly threw that in as my GT and it’s stuck ever since.

  1. I have been playing golf since I was 13, so 17 years.  I carry a 7 handicap and reside in the 81-84 range.

  2. I love golf for 2 main reasons.  (1) How it can bring people together.  Bringing people you already know closer, and also introducing you to people from every walk of life without the pressures of other traditional interactions.  (2) And the places it can take you.  I have played golf in a few different places.  Mostly northern Ohio, where I live.  Also Pennsylvania, Michigan, South/North Carolina, Florida, and SCOTLAND.  You can go anywhere in the world and play golf, and it will always be different and can be with new friends everywhere.  Name another sport that can provide that. 

  3. I love the information that MyGolfSpy provides about products and the way they put it. Unbiased and data driven.  I am an engineer myself so I appreciate a good data set.  I first got into MyGolfSpy because of Jason Stiwald.

  4. I reside in Lakewood, Ohio, just west of Cleveland.  I play a lot of different course, but my closest and easiest one to play is Big Met.  A Cleveland Metroparks course that isn't overly challenging (at all) but is usually in good shape and is close to home. 

  5. Best: Most courses are easy to walk. Ohio doesn't have much elevation, and I prefer carrying to a cart.  The people here are great to play with, any group you get put into is usually good.  Pace of play is good, even if it feels slow you're going to be done under 4.5 hours.  And the courses themselves, there is a good variety throughout the area using everything at the super's disposal. Water, lots of trees, bunkering.  Worst: Weather (short season, and its usually either wet or hot).  The best available courses to play are usually a decent drive from Cleveland.  There are some country clubs close to downtown, but obviously private.  Leagues, which is a problem everywhere, I understand.  But every night of the week at every course is booked up til 7pm, and for someone like me, the weeknight 9 is tough to work into a schedule. 

  6. What do you do for a living?  I am a Manufacturing Engineer working for Parker Hannifin.  I have been an engineer for 7 years since college. 

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  Its the most straightforward thing I could think of.  I love living close to Lake Erie (my house is less than a mile from it) and I play golf.

Water, lots of trees, bunkering.  Worst: Weather (short season, and its usually either wet or hot).  The best available courses to play are usually a decent drive from Cleveland.  There are some country clubs close to downtown, but obviously private.  Leagues, which is a problem everywhere, I understand.  But every night of the week at every course is booked up til 7pm, and for someone like me, the weeknight 9 is tough to work into a schedule. 

  6. What do you do for a living?  I am a Manufacturing Engineer working for Parker Hannifin.  I have been an engineer for 7 years since college. 

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  Its the most straightforward thing I could think of.  I love living close to Lake Erie (my house is less than a mile from it) and I play golf. 


Welcome from another Buckeye. There are a bunch of us here from northern Ohio. I use to live on the eastside but moved to Catawba Island 12 years ago. There is a northeast Ohio thread going here and@mattf is organizing an outing at the end of the month. I can't do a search using tapatalk, so you might try the desktop version to search for the northeast Ohio thread. The OP for that thread lives on the west side , perhaps Lakewood?

Be sure to post your location on the member map.

What’s up Midwest, particularly Michigan kids and Southeastern/Detroit suburbs spies. Looking forward to meeting some of you and playing some golf this year. 

 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Been playing 25+ years, but got more serious since I moved from Tx to Michigan. Generally mid to low 70’s. Broke 80 for the first time 2 years ago and trying for the next milestone of 75.

  2. What do you love about golf? It’s a unique sport with a lot of contrasting options, alternatives and choices. Spending time outdoors on a course is always great, but I equally enjoy the serious focus rounds as well as fun best-ball/drink a 6-pack / talk s*** w/ your buddies. I enjoy walking 9/18 just as much as a quick round by myself or meeting new people I’m paired up with. As many have said, I love how you can get in/out of trouble or just ride a low score. What will fall apart today - and how you get through it - is part of the fun.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I came for the reviews, really impressed with the fact-based and no-BS marketing spin. Making me look at things in a new light  

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Originally from Cincinnati, but started professional life in Dallas and now living in Detroit. No home course, though I frequent a lot of the muni’s in the Detroit suburbs near Birmingham and north/west  

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Michigan has incredible courses, the only downside is the long winters. Nov-April every year I’m missing golf life in Texas.

  6. What do you do for a living? Sales/Marketing/Future Planning for Global Jeep at FCA

  7. How’d you pick your user name? My last name is notoriously hard to pronounce, so I go by a lot of nicknames. 

If you’re in the Detroit/Berkley/Royal Oak area, hit me up and we’ll play a round!

@dgoober I'm in Royal Oak, so if you need a playing partner, let me know. I typically play during the week down here, and on weekends am in Northern Michigan to visit the in-laws, but we can make something work I'm sure.
