Share Your Name, Folks!

One of the nice things about the Internet is that nobody has to know who you are. You can pop in, post your thoughts, and leave, all in relative obscurity.

One of the bad things about the Internet is that nobody has to know who you are. You can pop in, post your thoughts, and leave, all in relative obscurity.

I recently asked several of our Forum Leaders and Supporters to take the small step of adding at least their first name to their signatures.

I'd like to ask everyone else to do that as well (if you're not sure when you get a signature, read: ). Just add your first name to your signature. It likely won't really identify you to anyone, but it will let people know that there's a real person named Steve or Tony or Ivan or Ulas on the other end of the discussion. It'll let people address you by your name rather than "golfer12683" or whatever you've chosen as your username. It'll bring a bit of humanity to the discussion.

So, please consider adding your first name to your signature, and thank you.

I like this. I always prefer addressing people by their names instead of their usernames. I already made it easy for everybody else...

Done, I think I've signed ~Tom B. on many of my posts already anyway.

My 3 sisters & 2 Bros. in laws still call me Thomas, which is fine,

But "Tommy" is like Nails on a Chalkboard to me.

It seems I have many names but my real name is Mike.

My Boy Scouts call me Mr Mike, not sure why it has been this way for the past 11 years. Never liked being call by my last name!

My son calls me Daddy O

My wife has many names for me, but I am sure you all can figure that one out. :censored:

hello everyone , I'm John and i just registered so the thing with the signature might last a little while. I'm a newbie here as you can see and also on the tee, got recently pulled in by my brother in law, now i'm not sure if its because of the thrill of playing golf or to get away from my sister LOL, long story short its cool to be here where i can read many many useful threads and learn every day about golf and hopefully that will improve my game. and thank you all in advance for having the patience with me as a beginner :D

Hello everyone, my name is Bill. I spend my summers at Mable Lake in British Columbia golfing & boating. I also golf around Calgary, Phoenix & Palm Springs.

The sandtrap is where I need to go to find rules I’m unfamiliar with.

    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      On Craigslist around Phoenix we used to see loads of irons in the early part season because people would buy clubs they can't hit *cough* blades *cough*, or just clubs that weren't fitted or they didn't like and then sell them. That's how I got my nikes before they were stolen.   I don't buy into the new distance drivers and such, but the forgiveness is definitely a major improvement. I take my old Wooden Woods to the range every once in a while and not only do misfits cause massive distance loss, they just fly horrible as well. The new stuff is definitely helpful to worse players but if Ben hogan could drive a wooden club over 300 then why is it so impressive to driver a super forgiving driver over 300? idk, just my $0.02
    • Injury Question
      With my insurance I can't afford a MRI.  I got one for my rotator cuff a 2 years ago and my insurance only paid $80 of the bill .  I'm still paying the bill since its either pay off it quickly and struggle with my school loans or pay it off slowly and pump more money into those things I used for school.  Without an MRI, I'm not sure how much help a doctor would be able to give me.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Everyone gets double bogeys. Even the pros. The pros just don't get them often.  We all have blow up holes. Mine tend to come in pairs. Then I'll settle down and hit "the shot." I consider an 8 a blow up hole. It's usually the result of a bad tee shot. Although on a real fast green once it was the result of a four putt.... in a tournament.... when I missed a 1 foot putt. Another thing we tend to do is try to do quick fixes during our rounds. Don't. They don't work. Play with the game you have. Fix your problem at the driving range later. If your driver is in the woods constantly, leave it in the bag for the round, and practice with it on the range. Hit an iron off the tee if you need to keep the ball in play. 
    • Injury Question
      Okay, so this isn't exactly something recent.  In fact its something I did in August, that seems like it just doesn't want to heal completely. The injury in question occurred on my downswing on August 7th, it felt as those I pulled every muscle from underneath my arm pit to the bottom of my ribs.  I gingerly tried a few swings after that and why it was tender I guess endorphins got me through the rest of the round (2 holes).  I probably should have taken a few weeks off to let everything heal after this, but seeing how I had lost 70lbs over the course of 4 months and would go onto lose 130+ lbs by October (mostly through golf) I was kind of blinded by the motivation to keep pushing myself.  I played with severe discomfort for a couple of weeks, and then it kind of faded though it felt tight to make a reaching movement with my left arm. Now months later, the pain is basically gone when it comes to golf, but every now and again if I do some unknown action with my swing I get what feels like popping sensation and the discomfort comes back for that swing.  The tightness when reaching never really went away either.  Most of the time it isn't a problem, its just something that occasionally bothers me and I was wondering if anyone has had something similar?  I'm currently trying to strengthen the muscles around that area to see if responds to what eventually got me over a partially torn rotator cuff.
