Hi everyone!

Long time reader, recent member, first post.

I've been playing golf for about 10 years. I got started late, in my mid 20s. Currently managing a 15hcp thanks to a commitment to more practice and some strong play in the few rounds I've managed this year. The improvements can be attributed to better putting and some swing and club adjustments. I also love club maintenance. It's what gets me through the winter. Regripping, cleaning, tweaking. I regripped, added 1.5 inches (I'm tall) and did the paint fill on all my clubs this February and really enjoyed it. I was very happy with the turn out, it's like getting new clubs. I should probably take some pics before I beat them to hell haha. 

 

As for what I love about golf other than the above, I love challenging myself and seeing improvements. I'm addicted to that feeling of being in the zone. I love the strategy and learning how to manage the course better. Most of all, I enjoy being outside with the boys, my wife or by myself. Hoping to add my son to my list of partners soon as he just turned 4.

I am from a little North of Toronto, Ontario so I'm jealous of anyone who gets full year golf.  I do not have, nor have I ever been a member anywhere but I have a handful of tracks in pretty regular rotation. I love playing new courses. 

I am an electrician by trade which means I'm generally stuck playing on weekends. 

My username is k van. It was a nickname when I was young and a gamer tag back when I spent my spare money on video games instead of golf as I do now. As for the 26, there are a few special days in my life that happen to fall on the 26th of the month.

 

Looking forward to hanging around and maybe even contributing once in a while. I can't even say how often I've been on this site looking for review or answers.

Welcome from a fellow electrician down here in Tasmania, just starting to get a little wet on the course here. As my birthday is on the 26th I am pleased that it is a special number for you. At 56 I am trying to maintain a 17 handicap, some days it seems easy and others not. Would like to see photos of your upgrades if you want to post them.

Mick,

 

My daughter and SIL live in Sanford just outside of Hobart. Beautiful country. Last time we were there we played Barnboogle/Lost Farm along with Tasmania Golf Club.

Thanks for the welcome Mick!

 

As the euro cup rolls on, I'm really loving the oranje on my clubs as you can probably tell 😁

Very nice job, not really up with the Euro Cup, but I am guessing from memory that you are supporting the Netherlands. Best of luck.

Regards Mick.

Live in Brighton UK and after a 9 year hiatus I’m back playing again. Playing off 14 and hoping to get back to single figure (was off 7). Haven’t joined anywhere yet, but enjoying “trying” out many courses looking for a home.

Hi All, 

Fairly new to the site! I recently got back into golf after a long hiatus, and in doing some research to catch up, I kept landing here! 

I'm from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (our nations beautiful capital) 

Been golfing on and off for about 15 years, but very sporadically. Never more than maybe 6 or 8 rounds a year. Changing that now! 

I'm pretty terrible out there, but for the first time I am working to get better! 

I enjoy the walk and exercise... I'm in pretty bad shape, and needed something to get me out walking and working some muscles! 

Golf is pretty good here, lots of courses and options... Downside is a sometimes long offseason in the winter, and limited indoor golf opportunities. 

I'm a national representative for a union, trying to help people as best I can! 

Looking forward to participating in the forums and drawing on the collective experience here! Thanks in advance everyone!

  1. I started playing golf around 30 years ago when I was 12. I stopped playing for 10 years due to back issues and surgery, and just started playing again 6 months ago. 

  2. The challenge of each round is what I love the most. Each time you go out and play a round there's always a new challenge to overcome. 

  3. Links to MyGolfSpy started showing up in my Google News feed. 

  4. Where are you from? This is always a complicated question for military members. I'm originally from Hamilton, Ohio and growing up I always played Twin Run Golf Course. Currently stationed at RAF Lakenheath and I play the Breckland Pines Golf Course. 

  5. The price on RAF Lakenheath is amazing but it's a 9 hole converted to 18 with 18 tee boxes. Another positive was getting the chance to attend The Open 

  6. U.S. Air Force

  7. Username I've always had

Currently playing the Ping G425 with a Cleveland 52 Wedge and a Vega Wedge

Trying to play as often as I can
