Living in central KS and have been playing for about 30 years but only playing more seriously for the last 8years or so.  Got as low as a 1.7HC at one point, not stay around the 7-8 range.   Play most of my rounds in the 6K yardage range as not long off the tee but always have fun.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I've been playing golf for around 10 years. This is the first year I have decided to keep an actual handicap but typically I shoot between 14-18 over par and slightly better at a couple courses near me that I play the most, more like 10-14 over

  2. What do you love about golf? I love most things about golf, but mainly the challenge and the constant opportunity to improve

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I am from liberal Missouri, the course I play the most is located in Carthage MO

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing about golf in my region is that there are a number of nice courses around that are affordable as well as some really nice courses within a couple hours, Branson MO/Rogers AR. The worst thing about golf is there is not an abundance of golf retail in my area or places to buy equipment, apparel, or club/ball fitting services 

  6. What do you do for a living? I work in IT

  7. How’d you pick your user name? It is just my name

  1. How long have you been playing golf? It has been going on 4 years. I started playing when my wife was pregnant due to not having the time to spend the day fly fishing. As a result, I found a new joy playing golf. 

  2. What do you love about golf? Being outside and walking the courses. Also, I love seeing my improvement. The more time I invest in practice, I can see the results on the course. The problem is consistency. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy?I started by reading the ball reviews. I am always trying to find a good deal that will bring consistency without breaking the bank. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Littleton, CO. My regular course was Deer Creek before it went under renovations. Now, I have been playing Meadow Creek and Foothills. 

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Being able to play different style of courses from park, country club, links, and mountain courses. Being close to the mountains we deal with a lot of wind and storms that pop-up out of nowhere. Winter can be hit or miss, but I do enjoy the challenge of playing a course that is as hard as concrete. Nothing feels better than a pitching wedge that goes almost 200 with a 50-100 bounce/roll.  

  6. What do you do for a living? I am a policy advisor. 

  7. How’d you pick your user name? Nothing special.

Hi this is my first entry. I live in south east Iowa. I am 63 years young and have been playin golf since I was 10 years old.  Unfortunately I had to take a rest from golf of about 25 years. Work and life got in the way. Now that I am retired my wife and I moved out from above Seattle 4 years ago. I started golfing again a couple of years ago. My handicap is 7 and I love being outside and enjoying the challenges. I love the people out here and have joined a fun league. My home coarse is Edmundson Golf Coarse here in Oskaloosa and I also play a lot at Harvest Point Golf Coarse across the street. I am fairly new to MyGolfSpy and picked my user name because I am a huge Washington Husky football fan. Thanks for putting this up. I am glad I could let you know about me.

Back in golf after a 25 year delay. Go Dawgs!!

Hey folks!

1. Been playing since I was 20.  Baseball was done for me since I wasn't good enough to play college.  Played with my dad a few times, hit a few dead center and I was hooked!  80s shooter on average.  

2. I love the challenge to get better, learning how to hit different shots, the feeling when you hit it exactly the way you want!

3. Find MGS through researching equipment reviews.

4. St. Louis, MO area.  Don't really have one single home course. I like The Falls in O'Fallon, Crescent Farms in Eureka.  Pheasant Run is a great Par 3 if you want to get around quick.

5. Worst thing about my region I guess is winter (?).  Best thing I guess may be variety of styles of courses around here?

6. I am an engineer in the telecom industry.
