Hello from Memphis, Tennessee

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, all. My name is Josh, and I am currently residing in Memphis, TN. I've just picked the game back up after taking nearly a decade off. I played competitively during my high school years while working/living on the golf course, but quit once high school was over. I was around a 15 handicap back in the day, and am hoping to get back to breaking 90 by the end of the year.

 

I've got a lot of things to relearn, but I feel like I have a new perspective and much greater insight into the game than I did when I was young, so I'm feeling optimistic. 

 

Since I've been away from the game for so long, I'm swinging some pretty old sticks: Ping TiSi driver, some custom fit (not anymore!) Henry Griffitts irons, and some very beat up Cleveland wedges. I'm looking to replace the wedges first, as they are beat to smithereens, and I'll have the irons checked out to see if they still fit, but right now I'm focused on getting back in shape for the game (I've lost a lot of flexibility) and relearning the most basic mechanics. 

 

I'm really excited to get back to it, especially now that the internet and places such as this are so widely available for help and guidance.

Welcome aboard Josh. I to stopped playing for about 10+ yrs. As you may or may not have noticed, everything has changed, clubs, calls, shoes, ect. I started back up in Oct. last yr. took me a good while to get up to speed on equipment, luckily there's a ton of great info here, as well as some great instructors. Anyhow, look around, and enjoy your stay.,

Welcome Josh, Memphis has some great courses and good weather for golf. I hunt down that way and have golfed closer to Jackson but have not played in Memphis yet.

Jackson is actually my home town. I just moved here a few years ago. I'm not too familiar with all the courses available to me in the area, but I know a few good places to start. The casinos in Tunica to the south of me have some very nice courses.
