Hello Spies around the world from Northwestern Ontario, Canada

I have been following MGS for about a year now and I've decided to get more involved because I think this is a great medium in the golf world, and I also need something to keep my busy while the snow is on the ground.

  1. I have been playing golf on and off my whole life with my dad but I stopped for about 5 years. I have now been fully dedicated to golf and taking it seriously for about 3 years. This year, 2019, is the first year i submitted scores to GolfCanada for handicap and at the close of this season I am sitting at 34.

  2. I love being outdoors in what is more often than not the more beautifully landscaped areas in town. I love the solitude as well as the companionship. And i love the feeling of that one shot that turns a bad round into a good one.

  3. Im a gear head and i love all the reviews and info on anything that has to do with golf. When I was a kid i was big into BMX and building computers and anything to do with technology and I still am to this day and I'm not content with just knowing the basics in whatever i take interest in, I love to dig down deep and really know whats going on.

  4. I am from Ontario Canada, I was born in Parry Sound, and have lived all over Ontario as a kid and as an adult. I currently reside in Thunder Bay, ON. I would not say i have a home course. I opt out of memberships because then I feel like I need to only play that course to get me moneys worth. I have a favourite course, which is Fort William Country Club, but the one I play most often is Chapples Municipal.

  5. The scenery if beautiful. So many lakes and rivers. The area is very mountainous. All the courses and parkland style. The worst part about golf here is the short season. Golf goes generally from May to mid October and then the courses are closed.

  6. I work retail, taproom and offsite events at Sleeping Giant Brewing Company. A locally owned and operated craft brewery

  7. How’d you pick your user name? T.T.G. is also my youtube handle which stands for the tattooed golfer which is my IG and FB page handle and I chose that name but I am a golfer that has a lot of tattoos

I play in the North Yorkshire region of th UK. Our parkland course is affected by the weather to a large degree, the greens dont really come to speed until June and are shot by October. Through the winter the course is soggy and muddy. However that doesn't stop me playing 3 times a week.  I did play off 10 but 4 hip replacement operations has set me back to 17 but now I a fit and aim to get back down in 2020. Mygolfspy has been my go to site for information and reviews for a while and I am looking forward to seeing what the forum has to offer.

Hi all, well my name is Ciaran and I have been a long time fan of my golf spy , been a member of another popular  forum , but this one seems more real. I live in ayrshire scotland and look forward to being a part of some discussions

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

I have have been playing golf since I was 3 , 25 years of playing golf. Handicap had trended up to 4 but hoping to rectify that next year. Usually shoot between high 60s to mid high 70s depending how much I'm playing.

What do you love about golf?

Everything , I just love how you can play golf at any age and still enjoy it,  I couldn't play for a couple of years due to a broken leg and arthritis but could still work on clubs , but so glad to be back playing.

 

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

I came here for honest reviews and maybe even a chance to meet up with a few new people who love golf.

Where are you from? What is your home course?

I am From Ayrshire Scotland , the home of golf. I stay on the west coast,  home course is Belleisle. But also play at Troon and Prestwick.

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

Links golf is just fantastic , but it has to be the weather that is the worst part , whether it be the blistering wind or the horizontal rain.

What do you do for a living?

I am a Life Support Technician in the offshore industry.

How’d you pick your user name?

It was just something that me and my Team mates used to say to each other. Either that was a "High cut cowboy riding the wind" or wow what a "turnberry tamer" so it's just stuck.

 

thanks for reading .

Hey everyone

I started playing golf after high school into my early 20's until life got in the way and golf took a hiatus.  Fast forward 12 years and my son decided last year he want to buy some golf clubs and it's taken over my life ever since.

I love everything about golf, but I really enjoy that it's something I can do with my wife and kids as a family regardless of age and skill levels.

I've been watching the Mygolfspy you tube channel "no putts given" podcast for a while and figured it's time to check out the forum.

I'm originally from Newfoundland but currently I'm living in Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.  My home track is Paragon golf and country club

The best thing about where I live is it's beautiful scenery and cheap golf memberships.  The golf season goes from end March/Early April - November.  The only downfall is a very wet spring and fall.

For a living I fly with Search and Rescue

My username goes back to my early 20's when one of my best friends girlfriends at the time forgot my name and mashed together part of my first name with my last name and came up with Jibbs.  It's stuck ever since

Hi All,

My name is Nathan, I've been playing golf on and off for about 20 years.

I love almost everything about golf, I especially enjoy how every round is different, and no matter how good you are, you will always find something challenging every round.

I play roughly 25 rounds per year, I practice a few times a week.

I live in New Brunswick (Eastern Canada) so we only get 5 months of good golf weather, and that's why I'm here. To get my golf fix without being at the course!

This past season I dropped my handicap from 6.8 to a 4.2 I'm very happy with that improvement and hope to drop another full stroke this coming season.

Been reading this site for a while and just joined recently and wanted to take the time to introduce myself.

Living in a small town East of Ottawa (Limoges) and playing out of the Casselview Golf Club.

I play a lot of golf averaging over 150 rds a year since 2011 with 2015 standing out with 260 rds in that year. Yes it does mean I go South once or twice a year to get 2 to 3 rds a day when I can.

In the bag:

Driver: Mizuno ST 180

Wilson C300 Irons

Maltby M+ wedges (52, 56, 60)

Maltby PTM4 Putter

I don't really have a fairway wood in the bag it stays in the garage as would much rather hit a 3i anyday.

Currently gaming the e-12 from Bridgestone as long as I can find it under $30 or at this time of year under the tree all wrapped up.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I'd guess 7 years now? I gave up trying to play cricket professionally and got invited to play golf. I got the bug instantly. I regularly shoot in the 90's but lowest scores are 84 and 83.

  2. What do you love about golf? “a well hit golf shot is a feeling that goes up the shaft, right through your hands and into your heart.” - Ben Hogan. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I do not know other Golf Spies....I love golf, golf gear and I would like to make new friends who share my love (obsession) for the game.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I'm from London, England. I don't have a hoe club but tend to play in Kent and Surrey. Hever GC and Sweetwoods GC are two of my favourite courses in the area.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? I love variety and sadly, very few golf clubs have multiple courses. I'd love to belong to a club with 2 or more courses.

  6. What do you do for a living? I work in corporate learning and development as a consultant and account manager

  7. How’d you pick your user name? My surname is Rainger and it rhymes with danger. Reaaaaaally complex :)

Another Canuck for ya eh!! 

1 my first real round was about 12 years ago but from time to time I would go to the park by my house and just hit balls. I've been picking up more and more interest the past five years but this last year has gone through the roof. No official handicap yet but that is the goal for this year 2020. Since I've been keeping score of 'every' stroke I shoot around 90

2 golf; unlike other sports say hockey (being in Canada) is still a ton of fun even when playing with beginners and all skill levels. not to mention being in Canada the season being so short being outside in the sunshine green grass birds chirping, not much can beat that

3 what brought me to golf spy was a search for a putter that turned up a tester thread on golf spy. What has kept me coming back daily almost is few Google searches for info... Kept coming up MGs had an opinion. Love no putts given and these last few months been looking to upgrade my stuff from Dunlop STA. I love the unbiased opinions and the staff has helped me immensely in narrowing down what I should be tested for my ability and style. Going to blame My golf spy for me getting 99% a new bag only thing I kept was my lob wedge and have found the style of golf ball that suits me muah!!!

4 like I said I'm from Canada Midland Ontario just north of Toronto. Didn't really have a home course but finally played one here called settlers ghost, new home course I think

5 golf in my area is great there are golf courses from a nice little town-owned park par 3 all the way up to high-end beautiful courses. Another thing about here is the diversity an absolute gorgeousness of landscapes, Rocky terrains and tons all of lakes up here make it picturesque when we get a chance from May till October which is obviously the downside but there are several simulators in my area to scratch that winter itch

6 I'm the milkman. Although I don't get to visit as many housewives as I'd like 😉 the job has its perks like early afternoons with nothing to do but take a nice stroll for 18 holes

7 put a long story on the name. The gist of it is from fantasy football and a nickname I have from hockey kind of combined and now I use it for tons of things

Sorry all that was so long but I guess I had lots to say. Can't wait they interact with all of you in the future.

Hey Everyone,

I've been following MGS closely over the past year and have decided to join. Lots of great things going on here and very interesting content.

I played a lot of golf as a junior up until high school and took a 14 year break before starting back last season and my handicap is currently 1. I play most of my golf in the Ottawa area and try to play a few weeks down south over the winter months. Excited to be a part of this great community!

Hello everyone, American guy here but living and working in South Korea.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I've been playing golf for 28 years off and on but playing consistently for the past 7 years. My current handicap is 11.

  2. What do you love about golf? I love the challenge of the game and the camaraderie of the people I meet and consistently play with. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I do not know other Golf Spies.... I learned about MGS through youtube when I was looking to buy some golf equipment.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I'm originally from New York City in the US but I currently have been living and working in South Korea for the last 7 years. I work on a US military base here and my home course is the course on the base here. The Lakes at Osan.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best things about golf here is having access to the military base courses as the are inexpensive. The worst thing about golf here is the Korean golf courses are too expensive to play so there is not a lot of variety to play different courses.

  6. What do you do for a living? I work as an aircraft mechanic.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? It is my nickname that all my friends call me and the 50 is my age.

Read two articles on mygolfspy and after viewing the comments on both, decided I would like to be a part of this group and possibly contribute too. 

I played squash for 28 years before golf found me so I’m a late starter. Had a handicap around 10 until a motorcycle accident almost took everything away ten years ago. Injuries and age have me playing bogie golf now but I do play a lot of golf. 160+ rounds last year. Who says practice makes perfect. 

I live in Sarnia, Ontario. mostly golf there but visit Port Huron regularly for gas and Bob Evans sausage breakfasts.

I replied to the article on St. Andrews before I read the rules so if you read that article (you should) you will be treated to another golf tale in the comments. 

Thanks for having me.

Hello everyone, Wanted to join because I love golf and want to get more involved. I am originally from the US but last year I moved to Scotland to follow Golf. Play more, learn more about the history and follow my (our) passion. If you are ever on the west coast of Scotland and need a playing partner or advise of where to play let me know. I am slowly going around the country and playing as many courses as I can. 

  1. Started playing golf about 10 years ago and love it. Playing off a 10 right now.

  2. Being outside. No shot being the same and having to be creative

  3. I've always been a reader but have recently taken a jump in golf and want to get more involved.

  4. I am originally from the rocky mountains of Utah. Last year I moved to Scotland to play more golf and take a chance to really follow my passion. Home course is Largs Golf Club

  5. Best part is the courses here are amazing. They worst part is the price of some of the courses is outrageous but luckily there are lots of others. 

  6. European Sales Consultant for US companies expanding to EMEA

  7. Chose my user name cause that is what I am here to do.

I just joined.  I'm stuck in Germany near a village called Issum.   My wife is German and inherited the family farm, so we moved here from California in 2002.  Luckily we are next to a golf course.  I'm retired and 72 now.  I've been playing golf most of my life.   I have been trying to invent golf products since 1975 and so far have no real successes.  I made a few putters, a laser device for putting, some golf mats, and recently a butt weighting system for my own clubs, which I will disclose in the DIY section.  I also concoct and copy exercises for my golf, with the favorite being swinging with the feet close together.  My wife has a bed a breakfast here called Pauenhof.

Welcome from the states. I spent 10 years commuting from Ohio to Düsseldorf and absolutely love Germany.
