post #182 of 203

Age: 47


Height: 5'10"


Where are your from:  Born down south, grew up in Michigan, and currently reside in Saratoga, NY


How long have you been playing: 37 years


Best score:  67(-5) at my home course. 69(-3) in competition.


Favorite club in the bag:  Scotty Cameron Newport II


Golf books/DVDs that have helped you:  Jack Nicklaus, Golf My Way. Ben Hogan, Power Golf and Five Lessons. Harvey Penick, Little Red Book. 


Where do you play:  Airway Meadows GC, and Saratoga State Park


Best courses you've played so far:  Pebble Beach Golf Links, The Bayonet Course at old Ft Ord, and the Nicklaus course Long Bay in Myrtle Beach. Pebble was incredible for obvious reasons and Long Bay is a solid layout but I have to say The Bayonet was probably the toughest course I've ever played. It was my home course in the early 1990's when I was stationed at Ft Ord. I'll also add that I really enjoy Donald Ross layouts and the three I've played The Sagamore, Glenns Falls CC, and Wilmington are right up there with the best I've played. 


Things you enjoy most about golf: From the time I took up the game at age 9 golf was about competition and improving. As I've gotten older the winning or losing part of competition is not as important as just the actual thrill of competing. Whether it's at the Club level or higher there is nothing that adds a little electricity to playing the game like competition does. These day's beyond the competition I really enjoy playing with my son and watching him develop into a good player. Last year he beat me straight up for the first time and I've never lost and felt so proud,lol! I told him I may be getting old but I'm not going to give up the title of best player in the family just yet. He's going to have to earn it! Last year was pretty cool in that I won our Men's Club Championship and my Son took the Junior Title.


Goals for 2013:  Repeat as Club Champion and continue to improve all aspects of my game like I have for the past 37 seasons. Also to continue my work out routine I started last year to keep myself more fit and flexible. As I approach 50 I've come to the realization that I wasn't going to be able to maintain my level of play if I didn't get my butt in the gym!

post #195 of 203

age 23


height 5foot8


weight 195 lbs (working on losing weight!)


country finland


current hcp 47 (out of a range between 0-54 hcp, so I'm highcapper)


average drive total distance 250 yards (I can improve this with better ballstriking, or so I feel at this beginner level.)


average clubhead speed 104mph


best score 105 (yea yea, I suck at golf,:cry:mostly the short game and three putting. And not getting on the green with approach shots)


favorite clubs:  24deg callaway hybrid excellent club, you need to buy these callaway clubs people!!!


goal for hcp: lower the hcp down from 47-->36 (out of a range between 0-54)


about finnish hcp system. It's funny when pro golfers have actually negative hcp in this country like tiger woods etc have MINUS hcp. The normal handicaps are 0-54. Pro golfers are better than zero so obviously they have negative (MINUS) handicap.


But in American logic, and American hcp, the pro golfers have PLUS hcp. This never made any sense. You cannot get plus hcp when you go to the negative side of zero. If pro golfers are PLUS handicaps, what are golfers with hcp in the ranges 1-36 for example. I think a number like 3, is definitely a plus number, a positive number;-)


Obviously logically and mathematically you must have negative on the negative side of zero and on the positive side of zero you have positive :-D
