Hello All,

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

    • I started getting frustrated with the game about 10 years ago.  The GHIN system says my handicap 4, but I normally shoot 75-82.

  2. What do you love about golf?

    • I love because, I actually don't know why I love golf, I just do.

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

    • I actually found MyGolfSpy when they first started up.  However, I am becoming more involved because I tend to track golf equipment pretty hard.

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

    • I am from Chicago moved to Colorado (go figure).  I currently don't have a home course, but I know my way around City Park. 

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

    • Colorado gives you some of the best golf views in the nation, but the cost to play out here is ridiculous. 

  6. What do you do for a living?

    • Currently I am an "engineer."

  7. How’d you pick your user name?

    • It is a secret code

Yeah golf in CO is outrageous imo. Also after last summer there has never been more players in the state than now. The fact you know city park well is honestly impressive considering the 18 hole weekend tee-times seem to be taken immediately after they are available two weeks out. I tend to play Kennedy since I live in Parker and my friends live near that course. Curious as to why you quoted engineer. Any fun story with that?

YES! A lot of golfers! It seems everyone and their mother now golfs, literally.  It is great to see because I love watching the game grow, but the obviously it has really impacted the veteran hackers. 

I have an "in" there, so I tend to play there every other weekend morning... I am really grateful for that.  I have only played CP and Willis.  I have really not found an opportunity to play other city courses, but Kennedy seems fun. 

By degree, I am a Biologist/Health Scientist... due to COVID I was not able to immediately that market.  I ended up using my mathematic skills to design and implement critical infrastructure.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? 25 years or so, just got more serious about it recently.

  2. What’s your handicap or normal score? 110-115 but taking lessons to drop that!

  3. What do you love about golf? Just trying new courses, improving each time out, new challenges.

  4. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I don’t know why others, I started watching the podcast on YouTube and found my way here. 

  5. Where are you from? What is your home course? Kansas City area. I play stone canyon mainly.

  6. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best is a lot of good courses within a reasonable distance. Worst would be weather. It goes from blazing hot to snow on the ground.

  7. What do you do for a living? I’m in sales for a technology company in the automotive industry.

  8. How’d you pick your user name? Just my favorite team.

Current bag: titleist tsi2, rbz 3 hybrid, callaway x20 4-p, random wedges, old taylormade putter.

1. Been playing just over 50 years now. Come a long ways from the cut down wooden shafted clubs from Grandpa's basement!

2. I say my handicap is between my ears, but currently play to a 7.

3. I love that the 'same' course is never the same. Even when you play it the same day, the wind is different, the sun, the grass has grown, etc. Still gotta put the ball in the hole!

4. A co-worker mentioned it several years ago, just really decided to join in more now.

5. Midwest - Kansas City last 30 years. Play mostly public courses, but had a job where I could play most private clubs for about 10 years. Falcon Lakes or Paradise Point are where I play most rounds lately.

6. Best things: lots of choices on where to play.  Worst thing: I used to walk a lot, but most courses require a cart. I get the reasons, just miss the stroll down a fairway at sunset.

7. Retail manager for a pretty good national chain.

8. User name first came up in Fantasy Football, was then working in golf area and wanted to have a little fun with the name.

Hey everybody, MH here. I'm a 13 handicap who breaks 90 most days. The two things I love most about golf is the chance to be outside in nature and the chance to share in a game with friends and my dad. 

I live in Kansas City, Missouri and am a member at Lake Quivira Country Club. Our course is arguably the most distinctive course in the Kansas City area (which isn't to say that it's the best course in the area, but I really love it) due to its hills and its location right next to the lake. The course is in great shape right now. If there are KC guys / gals who would like to play a round at LQCC, let me know and I'd be happy to get you on with a guest fee of around $100. 

I'm a criminal defense lawyer with an office in Leawood, KS. Here's my current bag setup:

Driver: G410 LST, 9 degrees

3 Wood: Srixon Z85, 13.5 degrees

Utility iron: Srixon ZX 2 Iron

4 - 6 irons: Srixon ZX5

7 - PW: Srixon ZX7

Wedges: Cleveland Zipcore, 52, 56, 60

Putter: Bettinardi Queen B6
