Hello everybody, I have been roaming around and checking out the site for the last week or so. Looks great and is highly informational! Thanks for all the work you guy do behind the scene to make it go. 

 

I'm 29 years old, started golfing with my dad around 7 or 8. Never played any kind of organized golf growing up. Played baseball/football in school. I didn't really fall in love with the game until I was about 26. If I knew then what I know now I would of only played golf, but who doesn't say that. 

 

In the past 3 years I have been playing 16" softball, along with golf. That's why I usually do really good in the beginning of the golf season, and tend to fall off in the middle and end. This summer, due to other circumstances, I will only be golfing. Trying to get into the low 80's consistently.

I am running a league in the south side. We are playing 8 courses throughout the summer. If anybody from Chicago would like information I would be glad to send you some. Its not a huge league, we have 15 guys right now. It is me and most of my friends, but the more the merrier, if you want some info let me know.

Sorry fellas, I mentioned to my buddy whos helping me run this and he brought up a valid point. Our league is not a normal style league play. Its a big group of friends and this is our first year trying to put something like this together. Being its our first year running this, we want to keep it as simple as possible so unless we know you in real life, we can;t have you in our league, at least not this year. I told someone before maybe during the summer we can meet up and shoot a couple rounds and you can get to know my friends and golf buddies, and hope to join next year. Sorry everybody. I shouldn't of posted anything without talking to my partner first. I apologize.

Hello, SimpleSimon...and welcome to the site!  Like you, I looked around here for the past few days/week, and found the site to be quite informative, so just recently signed up.  Looking forward to hearing about your progress once you are able to spend more time on your game...

 

Cheers!
