I've been on these forums since 2010 and never introduced myself? :huh:

 

Well anyways:

I'm Dan.

I'm 39 years old

I'm 5'10" and used to weigh 139lbs - we will not discuss my weight now ;)

I like long walks on the course into the sunset & a burger and beer on the patio afterwards.

I once played 2 holes with Bob Hope

I got married on Masters weekend 2007. While watching Zach win on Sunday my new bride Nidine turned to me and said I guess I have to take up golf now eh? She took her first lesson that Wednesday. We've played pretty much every Saturday every since.

My wife is 10 years younger than me

I have no kids

I do have a cat named Magnum

I've twice shot 68 - I was 18, it's a very vague memory now...

I drive a Honda

I have 458 friends on Facebook

My favorite movies include The Empire Strikes Back(well all of the original trilogy) and The Cabin in the Woods

I once holed a 4 iron from 142y under a tree

I have not yet since holed one from that far

I spent my honeymoon at Kapalua

I like orange

I like oranges

ManBearPig is a character on South Park create by Al Gore - he is half man, half bear, half pig

I use this name because I seem to be able to get it on any forums I go to :P

My phone is a Nokia

I play Wilson Staff FG Tour balls

I've had 2 hernia surgeries

 

I am done. If there's anything else you'd like to know feel free to ask away.

Actually I've had both sides done!

Well ManBearPig I was only trying to subscribe to your initial humor but as per usual I failed again. It's hard to show my expression on the internet highway. People always seem to get defensive when the word doesn't come with the facial expression or the manner it would be delivered in person. Maybe I should quit trying to be funny on the internet.

:wacko:

 

PS: sorry manbearpig I shouldn't have just insinuated, I was only trying to continue your humor with my own. I know all too well about surgeries. I have had 3 since 2008. Know I have a artificial Left knee. So I know what major surgery is all about! NO FUN!

I wasn't yelling at you or upset. Far from it. I misread your humor. It's a common occurrence for hernia surgeries to fail and most people think that. I hear ya you can't always tell tone on the internet. My response was that of believe it or not I've had to have both sides done. I was saying my response with a numerous tone too. It's all cool hope we can play a round together someday. :) and my left knee was redone acl etc so I feel your pain and ability to forecast rain too.

LOL. Yeah it's funny how when the weathers changing how it affects the joints. Glad your easy going but I usually realize much too late when I say something on the internet as it could be taken the wrong way. Or at least much easier then if in person! Yes I would like it someday if we could have a MGS OPEN.

Welcome

 

I'll toot Vancouver's horn any day of the week. I love my city. It's hard visiting other places sometimes and wondering where the mountains and the ocean are :)
