What do you do for a living?

Guess this is as good a place as any to make my first post. I am 40 and work for the Kentucky Court of Justice as a computer/network technician. My golf game has been virtually non-existent for the past 2 years - having triplets will do that to you. I am here now to find advice and help for my oldest sons golf game.

Welcome, jobuddah. What part of KY are you from?

I'm the "Old Dude" (says so on my ID Badge - lol) in the IT Dept for the VA Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD. Worked my way up the career ladder my first 15 years to become the Sr System Engineer for the 5 state network and about 6 years ago stepped down a couple of rungs to just work for the local facility for less stress, less travel and more golf and family time ;)

 

Prior to entering the IT field, I was a professional musician and used computers for composition and recording, so when my hearing started to decline I was able to use that experience to "get a real job".

 

Just turned 60 and got myself setup to practice indoors in one of my outbuildings over the winter, so I can have "golf season" year round and ignore all the snow outside.

HaHa, please, call me Richard or since it's shorter/easier, RP. Huntington's actually a title given by MGS, based in total posts, of which probably 2800-2850 of mine are double & triple posts, lol.

 

Since these titles past 1000 & every 1000 thereafter are based on a geographical location, I figured Huntington was the only one that I knew, Huntington, WV, though nothin really golf related happened down that way, other than them discovering the game bout 15-20 years ago. And it was only in '04 that golf clubs were taken offa local law enforcement's "dangerous weapons" list cuz families were usin em to settle ages old fueds.

 

Now that I've exposed my ignorance, someone will surely enlighten me, lol :-)

 

Fairways & Greens 4ever

 

And enlighten you I shall, Huntington is actually Huntington Beach California, home of Cleveland Golf. All "Agent Names" are cities where the golf companies are located. Plano is Adams Golf. Huntington is Cleveland, Fort Worth is Hogan? was Hogan and is UST Mamiya, but typically just a shaft company is not enough. Fairhaven is Titleist, Phoenix is Ping and Carlsbad is TMag and Callaway.

I am a 36 year old father of three, married for 12 years to my college sweetheart and by training I am a CPA in a few states with an MBA in International Finance. Spent most of my career doing really technical geeky accounting work for SEC registered companies until a few years ago when I went into the family business. I am currently the VP of Finance for a casino property in Queens NY and soon to be CFO for our parent holding company. I still do most of the geeky accounting stuff and work a lot on financial modeling and planning for the NY property as well as the other properties that we have in the US and Bahamas..........I know really of life of danger and excitement. Best perk of working for a casino is that I get some sweet golf invites and play a lot of courses that are tough to get on......oh and my boss encourages me to play in a ton of "charity" events that we support in the NYC area.

Work as an Academic Coach at the high school. I also coach boy's basketball, football and track. I also run a weight lifting club at the HS. It's a surprise I find time to golf as much as I do.

What a change in three years. Closer to 40 and now the CFO of the Americas. No more geeky accounting for me and more oversight and development work. Oh and enough frequent flyer miles to go to the moon and back...twice.

Hmmm.... glad I found this.  Should be required reading for all noobs !

 

Guess I'll spill the beans...

For the past 15 years I've worked at Boston University in Information Systems & Technology.  I started as an application developer, moved to data integration, and am now working as a Business Intelligence/Data Warehousing developer working on creating data analytic applications for use by the University administration and schools & colleges.

I got my background in IT at the ripe age of 17 in the Marine Corps, moved on to IT consulting and then decided to settle in MA.  Went to school at night to get my undergrad degree at BU (free!) shortly after starting here.

Have lived in all 4 corners of the US (Eugene OR/Oceanside CA/Atlanta GA/Boston MA) and enjoyed each one of them.

Never have had any lessons/training, just kind of picked up some clubs, watched how they did it on television, read a couple of books and practice, practice, practice!
