Wow, a lot of IT guys............cough nerds cough..........just kidding, don't hurt me. I'm a college student, majoring in sororities if you catch my drift.

I'm a software/web consultant. I like looking through the server logs mid-day to see who's browsing the main site (we don't keep statistics on forum usage). It's always a bunch of people using thei

I've been a concrete finisher for 13 years. Haven't been able to work (or play golf) for the past 3 weeks because of a work-related back injury. Guess I'm getting old, since this is the first time I've ever had back problems from the job.

I work as a financial adviser for a small branch of Raymond James in Danvers, MA. I am very passionate about the game and try to combine business and golf as much as possible. I also plan on volunteering for this First Tee at a local golf club. I am friendly with many local PGA professionals and support what they do for the game. The past few years didn't play as much as a wanted to so I'm back up to a 5 handicap and I am hoping to get to scratch by the end of the summer as long as I disciple myself to work on the short game. Look forward to participating in this forum.

Security guard at the mall down the street. Decent gig if you need something that can work around school hours, and if you can deal with teenagers who think it's really clever and original to call you "Paul Blart."

I work in Human Resources for a municipality. It is a decent profession and I am humbled and honored to work for my fellow tax-payers. I don't take it for granted.

Nonetheless, I look forward to being a "weekend warrior," so to speak, and put much effort in to golf, bowling, and softball (among others). The bowling and softball part have been easy, golf has been the most challenging and rewarding of all of the endeavors. I definitely got the "bug" for golf. It dominates my free time; whether reading, watching. thinking, practicing, or playing. It's my favorite by leaps and bounds!

Union Plumber/Pipefitter. Hope to go back to school soon. 11 years of wear and tear in the construction business is starting to catch up to me. Wanna get out while I'm still young.

I am a career firefighter, paramedic, Union President, small business owner, husband, and most importantly a father. My daughter is 5 years old has a wicked swing but about as much patience as I had when I was young. I love my job(s) but they won't last forever. Golf and love for my family are what I'll hang my hat on long after my working days have come to an end.

I work on drilling rigs in South Tx 6 months out of the year, the other 6 months I fish and golf :).

Prior to this, I was a Safety/DOT compliance supervisor for a natural gas company for close to 4 years and for the first 12 years of my adult life I was in the Marine Corps.

Current job is excellent, income is only limited by desire to learn more and you only work half the year.

    • Day 75.  More wall drill, plus I set up to a ball with my 6-iron (on a mat, but I didn't downswing and hit the ball at any point).  I set up, took the backswing, incorporating what I was getting out of the wall drill.  The thing I really noticed when I got to the top is that my club isn't as far over-extended (seriously, some of those face-on videos looked like I was trying to be John Daly). 
    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
