  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  Been playing around 40 years, 35 on actual courses.  Handicap is around 11.  

  2. What do you love about golf?  It’s all dependent on what you do.  No refs, no judges, just you.  

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  The great reviews and information.  I may know some and have no idea  

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?  Grandville Mi area.   Don’t have a home course.  Kids are old enough starting to play more often again.  

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Summer golf is great   Winter sucks.  

  6. What do you do for a living?  Engineer

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  Um, see above.

  8. was very disappointed with a driver fitting I had over a year ago.  Knew I should get fit, loved the data, after learning more discovered they did a terrible job.  Thankfully, they suggested my gamer was worth keeping as for $400 it wasn’t worth the extra 0.3 yards.  

  9. Used the ping app, discussed on the site to fit myself for a putter last month.   Have always played a blade and tempo said go to a mallet.  Slight arc.   Tried the winner from Dicks.  Wasn’t very good with it.  Tried ping, odessey, and everything else.   At a small local shop saw a evenroll er5 and tried it for laughs as that is way out of my budget ( I’m cheap).  Fit perfect and putted great with it that the other people probably thought I was nuts laughing so much.  A 34 5/8 would be a proper length for me.  I just chocked down a little.  Checked the price on the er5 and $150.  I asked the guy at the counter if it was mismarked  and he said “nope”.  It’s in my bag and I will track the changes, hopefully for the better.  

Welcome, fellow Grand Rapids-er! Us engineers seem to be pretty common in this neck of the woods;) Just curious, where did you get your driver fitting done? I've been starting to look at getting fit, but haven't heard a ton of reviews from places in the area. Heard Maple Hill was solid, and don't necessarily want to drive over to the east side of the state or Chicago to know it'll be a quality fitting...

Hello all and thanks for reading.

I first swung a club in my early teens. Would borrow my Dad's clubs to hit the range or play 9 with my friends. That is until I was hitting his wood driver and the face insert flew down range half as far as the ball. At that point it was time for my own clubs. In my early 20's I bought my own clubs and would play a few times a year. It wasn't until mid to late 30's that truly fell in love with golf.  Now I've invested more time and money into the game which I feel is close to paying off. 

I usually play 9 to 27 holes a week.  Golf league on Thursday at Evansville Golf Club and my friends and I try to get 18 in on weekends. Actually missing 18 with the boys right now due to work obligations.  Not sure of my handicap but I generally shoot 45-48 for 9. Again, I feel I'm close to that being low 40's. 

Golf is therapeutic to me. I work on the service business where the only reason people talk to me is because something is wrong. Golf lets me get away from that. At times it frustrates the hell out of my but when you pick one clean or have this gorgeous ball flight or stick one close it feels so calming. Of course, I want to break a club when I chunk one from 100 yards out.

I found MSG last year as I was starting to rework my bag. Found reviews very helpful in putting me on the path to find clubs that would work for me. Truth is, there is just so much out there and being able to pick 3-4 brands to choose from to test helped not feel so overwhelmed. 

I live in Madison, WI and love it. There are at least 15 courses within a 20-25 minute drive for me. No shortage of options. Some better than others. As I said before, I play Evansville every week the usually The Oaks, Door Creek, Pleasant View, Meadows at Six Mile on weekends.  I really should explore more courses. If anyone wants to join let me know. Need more playing partners.

I work for wholesale company in the skilled trades as an Operations Manager. Started with this company when I was 20 so I'm in my position because I know our customers and what they want & need. Not because I know how to manage operations.

As for my handle, my nickname is Tito and in my early 20's I was the diplomatic one of my all roommates.  During arguments or riffs I would be the voice of reason. One night after a few beers 1 of my roommates called me The Mayor. Hence MayorTito.

Welcome!  I live in the Milwaukee area now but grew up near Madison and have played every course you mentioned.  If you aren't worried about spending a little cash University Ridge (Verona), Legend at Bergamont (Oregon), and Hawk's Landing (Verona) are all great Madison area courses.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? The first time I played, I was 16, but then stopped until I was 21, so...now that I am 43...that makes 22 years. I don't have registered handicap, I shoot in the High 70's Low 80's. 

  2. What do you love about golf? I love that, for the most part, you get what you deserve. Your score is your own! Still you can be social and engaged, but the total is up to you. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I love the independence, honesty and reviews. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I am from Michigan, no home course.

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

  6. What do you do for a living? Staffing.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? I am who I am.

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

I have been playing golf for about 11 years. My normal score is in the mid to high 70s.

  1. What do you love about golf?

I love the challenge of the game and that you can play it your whole life.  I also love how different you can make your golf experience compared with someone else. You can play in tournaments, leagues, outings, or just the weekend round.  You can have such a wide combination of equipment that is unique to you, which I think makes the game pretty fun. 

  1. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?

A friend of mine turned me on to MGS, and the honest product reviews and articles keep me coming back.

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

I live in Lansing, MI.  The course I play most often is Willow Wood Golf Club, but when I head up north to the family cottage we like to play St. Ives, Katke, and a few others around the area.

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

I think the best things about Michigan golf is that your are never too far from a golf course and the scenery on some of the courses is just amazing.  The worst thing is easily that you only have a few good months of golfing weather.

  1. What do you do for a living?

I manage a print shop.

  1. How’d you pick your user name?

Pretty simple, just my name and the number I wore when I played sports growing up.

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

I have been playing on and off since I was a kid but was mostly off for the last 10 years. A few years back I got a new set of clubs and started playing more. This year I am getting out as much as I can. Shooting just above 100 right now and working to get it down into the 90’s soon. Handicap right now is a cool 25.

2.    What do you love about golf?

I love golf because it demands your attention. Unlike other sports you cannot hide in golf. If you are not focused you will not hit well. 

3.    What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?

For me it is the mission. Fair reviews are critical. So much of golf is about the name or the latest technology but what is that really going to do for your game, that is what I am looking for. 

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

I live north of Chicago and my home course is Crystal Lake Country Club.

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

Best is the course in the summer. Worst is winter. 

6.    What do you do for a living?

I am a director of strategy and analytics.

7.    How’d you pick your user name?

Because… the hammer putter why else.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I found this wonderful game in the spring and played my first 18 in early June of this year. I just broke 90 with an 89 on a Par 70 (Slope 122), and have been shooting in the mid-low 90s consistently now. My goal is to break into the 80s and stay.

  2. What do you love about golf? Being outdoors, competing (against the course/myself), with friends. I frequently find myself asking 'what's not to love about golf?' and then I chunk an approach shot and want to throw a club.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Love the product reviews

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I'm from the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I don't have a 'home' course that I play regularly because I'm new and still checking out as many area courses as I can, but I live closest to Bridges at Poplar Creek in Hoffman Estates, IL.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best? There seems to be a lot of quality courses anywhere you go. The worst? Winters.

  6. What do you do for a living? I work in commercial finance for a building materials manufacturer.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? My parents gave it to me. 🙂

How long have you been playing golf?

I picked up golf in the spring of 2004. I was stationed in Florida (USAF) and playing golf kept me out of trouble. 

What’s your handicap or normal score?

I haven’t kept a handicap since I moved to Indianapolis from Florida. It was at 7 and some change at that point. I stay between 74 and 78 pretty consistently.

What do you love about golf?

It’s you vs you.  No one to blame but yourself when everything goes wrong. 

What brings you to MyGolfSpy?

I kept finding myself on the boards so I thought I’d join.

Do you already know any other Spies?

I do not.

Where are you from?

Indianapolis-Fishers area

What is your home course?

I just moved to the area so I don’t have one yet.

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

Most certainly the winters

What do you do for a living?

I’m a Realtor.

Hello everyone. New member here. I haven’t played a round of golf in 14 seasons. Not because of marriage or a job.Just got fed up with the elitist crap that golf is mostly about.Was an extremely avid golfer for 20 plus years before that.One day I just had enough of the a holes that play this game and walked away. Slowly getting back into it and found this site researching equipment. Please be patient with my posts since I’ve been away from this game for so long.

Not because of marriage or a job.Just got fed up with the elitist crap that golf is mostly about.Was an extremely avid golfer for 20 plus years before that.One day I just had enough of the a holes that play this game and walked away. Slowly getting back into it and found this site researching equipment. Please be patient with my posts since I’ve been away from this game for so long.

 

thanks for letting me join. Dan

How long? 

I played a few times growing up but started really trying to learn the game/build a swing in 2012. I've broken 90 only twice...I'm currently a 22, down from a 36 I guess. 

Love? 

The lifestyle, being outdoors, the attempt to get better at a frustrating game. 

What brought me here?

I like reading about equipment and tips to get lower scores. 

From?

Central Ohio. I don't really have a home course. I play relatively open courses to work on my game typically. 

Best and worst?

Hard to say what the best thing is. The worst thing is winter. 

Living?

I had a long career in national security/defense. I left the company for a small tech start-up and ended that after 3 years. I'm remodelling our house and will find something after the major portion is done (after golf season....shhhh)

User name?

I used to blow s*** up.

Welcome to the forum from the northwest part of the state. FYI there are a bunch of guys here from Ohio, including central Ohio. Don't forget to show your location on the member map. Also@mattf is organizing an Ohio golf get together you might want to get in touch with him.
