Good Day all, My name is Lynn Parker (male) I go by Alzo I've been playing since I joined the military back in 1984, but was only once in a while golfer, I have since graduated to a regular golfe

I knew I'd end up leaving some state out. My apologies to the good folks of Utah.

Can't beat Hobble Creek in late September.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?--I have been seriously playing for probably 10 years or so. Another 5-7 years much less seriously before that. My normal scores are usually somewhere between 75 and 83, with the occasional outlier on either end.

  2. What do you love about golf?--I love to be outside so that is a big plus. But I also love that it's a game that has a system in place where everyone can play together on a pretty even playing field.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?--Curiosity. I think I might know one or two.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?--Born and raised in St. Paul, MN, but moved to Las Vegas about 3 years ago. I don't have a home course. Sort of a nomad

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?--It doesn't snow 6 months out of the year so being able to be on the golf course all year is a big plus. A plus and negative would be there aren't many trees so when it's windy, its windy.

  6. What do you do for a living?--I do training, implementation, and consulting for a computer software system installed in car, semi-truck, equipment, and motor sport dealerships. 

  7. How’d you pick your user name?--It was a nickname that was given to me by my hockey coaches when I was little.

Hi fellow west coast golfers. I'm fairly new around here still, so I'll keep sharing information until someone holds up the quiet signs.

 

How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing since 1997, with a break during my Michelin star chasing years.

What do you love about golf?

Its a Neverending life lesson and challenge that has shaped my personality for the better. 

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

I found you guys through the ball lab.i don't know any spies yet, but everyone has been unbelievably welcoming and nice. 

Where are you from? What is your home course?

I am originally from Portsmouth, NH and currently live in Sonoma County, CA. I am currently a member at Northwood, GC in Monte Rio. We are currently looking to move back to New England in the spring. 

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best? No off-season. Worst? Lack of grass ranges and fire season. 

What do you do for a living?

I have worked in food for 15 years, and am currently a manager at a grocery store because of the pandemic. I am actively working to transition into the golf industry by next season. 

How’d you pick your user name?

its my old college email address that I just use for everything since it's a combination of my first and last name. 

Titleist 975J

Callaway Hawkeye 3 Wood

Hey, new here. My dad and I have been hitting the course since I could walk. He’s both my coach and my most frequent companion on the course. My old man is 60 yrs old and a scratch golfer. He keeps me humble. However he just broke his arm (near the shoulder) mad after 8 tedious months got clearance to start back at golfing. I’m coming in here to look for tips people may have re coming back  after injuries and playing into old age for him. As well as building a consistent all around game for me

I’m 25 and looking forward to a helluva lot more golf ahead of me than I have behind me. 

I played golf in my childhood and teen years then got distracted more by other sports in high school. Doing that I built up the muscle and flexibility to really be able to crack the whip on my swing for a high club head speed. I can get some good distance and love my driver, woods and long irons. Now I’m looking to get consistent with them and hit some fairways for once😅 and maybe get it on the green in regulation a couple of times a round 🤷🏻‍♂️

Aloha Everyone!  My name is Jake, been following Mygolfspy on Instagram for a while now, but finally wanted to get involved in the community!!! 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  I've been playing golf since about high school about 6 years ago.  Just got into it when my friends and I would start going.  Old buddy of mine gave me clubs and taught me.  My handicap right now is a 9.0, and usually shoot in the low 80's.

  2. What do you love about golf? I love golf because it's the most challenging sport out there.  Doesn't matter how athletic you are, and trying to get that swing right is always a challenge no matter how long you've played.  

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  Been following MyGolfSpy on IG so I've always kept up with the legit reviews!  Don't know any other spies just yet, but excited to do so!!!!

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I'm from Oahu, Hawaii, born and raised.  Home course is Hawaii Kai Golf Course on the south east point of Oahu, but my friends and I play golf once a week at different courses all over the island.  

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Best part is we can golf year round with no worries, but since it's Hawaii, the rounds cost a lot of money!!!! 

  6. What do you do for a living? I'm a healthcare consultant who provides consultation to large employers around the islands.  

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  My friends and I used to call ourselves the Pinhunterz so I felt it was only fitting!!

I have been playing golf for almost nine years.  My husband bought me a started set for our anniversary one year and I actually stuck with it.

I love getting to see so many beautiful places and the challenge with every round.

I'm from California and have played lots of different courses.

Noob on this forum, not to the game. Decided to join after reading some reviews, exposure to MGS via other social media. Live in the Reno-Sparks area. Grew up in NorCal. Introduced to golf (and good bourbon) by my father. My best golf scores are behind me but I get more enjoyment from the game than when I was a single digit handicap.  I tend to play the area courses under the "Duncan Golf Management" umbrella.  

Looking forward to exploring this website and taking in the views from others who enjoy the game and all of its facets.

Other Stuff

  • How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Have played 53 years, Current Index is 15.6.   

  • What do you love about golf?  It's unscripted fun, torture, and adventure. The game has taken me to some great venues and I've enjoyed the pursuit of Old Man Par all these years. 

  • What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Reno-Tahoe area lacks affordable summer-time golf. Shoulder season rates are good once the tourists go home. There are some world class mountain courses within an hour's drive but they're 3 figure green fees; now that I'm retired, those are maybe one or two times a summer.

  • What do you do for a living? I was in manufacturing operations from 1986 - 2019. Prior to that, I was in the military due to a Army college scholarship obligation.

  • How’d you pick your user name?  A nickname picked up from college era acquaintances.

Details, details. . .

I was sad because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no lob wedge.
