Actually Make that All Great Things--

After almost 4 years of serving as Moderator, Forum Director and Staff Admin.  It's unfortunately come time that I need  to re prioritize my time commitments. I'm stepping away from my day to day activities/duties of Forum Director and taking on more of advisory role and doing some odds and ends things to help out the moderators and of course @GolfSpy_THV and @GolfSpy MPR as they continue to lead the forum.

I've taken on the responsibility of overseeing another course in our portfolio and it's going to require a lot more of my time and attention.  As such I won't have the time needed to properly serve as a day to day Staff Admin.  You'll still see me around doing some things here and there like running the final two Majors Contests Pools.  Posting any newsworthy releases I get from the OEM's and of course just posting my usual club buying and testing adventures.   

I'm not going away, I promise you that. The staff is in good hands now with THV and MPR and the new additions of @GolfSpy_TCG and @GolfSpy_CS  I'll just be watching from the practice squad ready to fill in if needed and available. 

As I've said, many times over the years, this forum is so great because of the members, you guys made this job easy. We have had to do so little moderating that it allows us to do other cool fun things and not have to worry about what's being posted where.  That is so unusual in this day and age of forums.

Lastly, I have to give a huge thank you to @GolfSpy Barbajo @hckymeyer and @GolfSpy_X for giving me this opportunity several years ago, and for supporting the Admin staff in everything we do, in more ways than you guys will ever know.   Adam is an awesome owner, and Barbs is one the best and most professional dudes I've ever had the chance to "work" with if you call this work!    

Now, I've got a new update to my driver challenge to post soon, so as Miranda would say  "We Out!" 




Thank you for being a really great forum leader and congratulations on the new assignment!

Rob, thank you for all you have done and brought to the forum over the years. It has been great to get to know you and engage with many of your different golfing adventures along the way.

Big congrats on the new position and wish you the best of luck with it. Sounds like a exciting and fun challenge which is what we often need in life! 

Glad this isn't a good bye and looking forward to following along with this new chapter in your life.

Thank you again!

Rob, it's always been a pleasure being involved with things you've organized, 3ven the ill fated Myrtle attempt where you said you'd pick up a young me for transportation off a train. One day we'll meet up, I promise, and hopefully you won't even regret it!

Thanks for all your efforts over the years Rob. I’ve enjoyed reading about your club hoing, sorry, quest for better equipment for a long time, even prior to your moderator role.

Enjoy the challenge of your expanding day job, different stresses and hopefully you will get to play more often.


As has been previously noted, big shoes to fill, and that’s not related to your stature!


Hopefully I’ll get to tee it up with you one day

In addition I often used him a sounding board on a PM to a “misbehaving” member that I was about to send.


All kidding aside, Rob, thanks for everything you've done for the community and the laughs you've given us as a true club ho. All the best mate and hopefully we can get together again for another round.

I'm very happy for your new position my friend - what a year you've had.  I'm also honored to be posting after Mr. Theo - miss having you around bud.  Let me know if ever you make another Florida stop.

Each moderator has added something unique to the mix.  I hate when they go and disappear and am very thankful when they step back but remain as active forum members.  I also understand that often the reason for stepping back is that their life got a bit more hectic.  That's usually a good thing.

Best wishes Rob - I'm still saying you need to add the SIM2 to your driver mix. 🙂

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Ah man Rob. I only know you as ”CG2” what was your non-MGS handle?! 

I don’t think we can say thank you enough for everything you contributed as a moderator and admin for this site.     From regular posts, private messages, and testing threads you’ve been nothing but great to talk to and work with. As sad as it is to lose you there it sounds like you’re getting a great opportunity at work and I’m glad to hear you won’t be leaving us.  

Thank you Rob for everything you’ve done for MGS. Looking forward to your future unofficial posts and continued conversations!

Rob initially was MGS Rob when he promoted just to confuse the heck out of all of us because he was GC2 before that. We were all happy when he changed it even though we knew who we was it was nice to see his original name back. 

Rob you’ve done great at your job and everything you’ve done has been great. It was nice to talk to you on here before you came a mod and as you were a mod. I definitely need to make the drive down your way and get a round in with you and some others at some point.
