Congrats on the milestone. I have enjoyed a lot of your content, personally the build of the Sub 70 699s with the MMT was great to read about. Keep sharing and look forward to your next posts as well.

Congrats ok 2k!  I always enjoy reading your posts and particularly your build/swing threads.  

Thanks for being an awesome member for the community. Keep up the good work and calf-raises and you'll probably be starting a thread about becoming a scratch golfer soon!

I realized last week I was closing in on 2,000 posts since becoming a member here on the forums. (And I was even able to time this post to be No. 2000!)

It has been a wild ride since I joined in Dec. 2018. At that time I was just starting to get back into golf after several years of not playing very much. I think @GolfSpy MPR's DIY SuperSpeed post is what finally sucked me into joining and contributing after lurking for quite a while.

I ended up enjoying my stay and am very fortunate to have been a tester for the Callaway Epic Flash driver and for the absolutely incredible #CobraConnect Challenge last summer. It's been wonderful getting to virtually know a lot of you and how you play the game of golf. I also had the pleasure of playing a round with @ncwoz last fall and hope to do so again sometime soon.

Golf has been very good for me both mentally and physically, and I'm glad I've found a place to share my highlights/lowlights with like-minded peers. I've learned a lot from all of the very knowledgeable members on here.

When I joined, I estimate I was somewhere between a 20-22 handicap, shooting mid-90s on my better rounds. During the initial testing/fitting for the Epic Flash driver, I was carrying my driver 210-220 yards and 240 yards was an absolute bomb. I remember measuring my driver speed at 94 MPH with a Swing Caddie that winter. My golf game has come a long ways since then, and the forums are most definitely the driving factor behind that. 

While my pocketbook would likely be much more full had I not fallen back in love with golf and finding this site, I don't regret that a bit. 

Here's to another two thousand! (Which will likely take much longer than the first.)

Congrats on 2k! Enjoyed reading much of your content over the years. These are some of my favorite posts from our members, where they reach incredible milestones and we are able to celebrate having them here. 
Thank you for all your engagement within the community and looking forward to 2k more!
