The Phrase:

Godspeed, meaning "a prosperous journey," comes from the Middle English phrase God spede you ("God prosper you"). It was originally used to wish success to someone, like saying, “May you prosper.

The Origin (maybe):

Astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin E. (Buzz) Aldrin, Jr. thundered away toward the Moon, the last words they heard from Launch Control were: "Good luck and Godspeed." Armstrong replied, "Thank you very much.

 

I was going to say, I knew it from the Apollo 11 mission, but had no idea of the above meaning of it.

Congratulations guys! I can only imagine the applicant list was long and applaud the current mods on their selection of the two of you. I'm really looking forward to seeing what y'all bring to the forum!

All,

After a lengthy process - far too lengthy, and that's on me...regular job has been crushing me lately - we have decided on a new Mod and Content hunter.

First, I wanted to thank all of the great applicants we had. There are truly some amazing individuals we have in our membership and reading over the applications was really impressive - the accomplishments, accolades, and skills that are possessed by our membership is what makes MGS such a special place!

Second, this was a REALLY hard decisions and ultimately the current Mods and myself had to take a hard look at our current skills and deficiencies and select a candidate that filled in our current gaps. This does not mean the other applicants were not excellent, only that our current gaps required a different skillset that was only filled by two candidates

Without further ado, our newest Moderator is ChasingSratch - now @GolfSpy_CS and our Content Hunter is TheChrisGibbs - now @GolfSpy_TCG.

Welcome to the team and please post an intro for yourself!

Congratulations!!

Hey MGS Forum,

The reactions and congratulations have been overwhelming. I truly am excited to work with the team and contribute to the forum.

As an introduction, I’m newer to the forum but have been obsessed since the moment I discovered my favorite golf website had an active forum. I am based out of Salt Lake City, Utah, and I’m married expecting a baby boy (first child) later this year! My wife loves it when I tell people it’s going to be a baby boy, and we’re naming him Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Gibbs. I’ve worked in software sales for 6 years, but as introductions go, I’m a golfer.

As a Content Hunter, I’m going to work relentlessly to bring exciting topics, personalities, and insights to the forum. There are not many golf outlets I don’t actively follow, and I hope to feed the spirit of the forum by bringing my passion to the table.

If you ever find yourself in Utah, hit me up so I can plan a game of wolf or some other concoction I’ve dreamed up!

Chris

Congrats on the firstborn!

Thanks! Much to my dismay, though, my wife has vetoed Tiger Gibbs. Alas, we'll probably name him something boring like Brooks, Bubba, Phil, Rory, or Jack. Those are the other options I gave her at least.. 😅

Man, I'm several days late on this one, but congrats @GolfSpy_CSand @GolfSpy_TCG!

And Chris, I feel your pain...I tried to name my first son Jordan (a la Spieth) and was vetoed pretty swiftly.  The veto was still in place when my second boy was on the way too.

I see nothing wrong with the name Jordan, should be way easier to get approved than Eldrick

My wife felt like it could be a girls name, which I kind of see, but I'm sure she was only rejecting because she knew the origins of the idea...

That's okay, Grant or Clark will look just as good on a Sunday leaderboard on CBS...😂

Any name would sound good if it was my son or daughter playing in a professional golf tournament

Definitely didn't mean to turn this into a, "How can I name my kid after a professional golfer" thread, but I'm not upset that's where it went! All jokes aside, if anyone ever has feedback or interesting topics they'd like me to dive into and research, that's one of my favorite parts of golf. The golf universe just has so much to give!

No topics for you. But you could try Seve, Ben, Nick, Tom, Greg, Arnie or something along those lines.

my 2nd youngest I got to pick his middle name... he was born on Tom Brady’s birthday. So knowing that my son will be. Future GOAT... his middle name is Brady.  😂😂😂
