Chiropractor.


I get a good deal of time off b/c (Tues off, half days Thu and Fri, and weekends off), but I'm married, with two young daughters...

So, even getting out to play a single round can be contentious with the wifey.

If I had it my way, I'd be out there whenever I'm not at the office. If my wife had it her way, she'd throw out my clubs;)

So, I'm satisfied with my once a week round. I'll usually get out at least once a week and hit at least a warmup bucket.

I am 24, I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a degree in Business Management with minor in Chemical Engineering and Economics.  I own 49% of a large pawn shop.  I worked for our other shop during my first 2 years of college and then when we opened a new store I moved to it to manage it.  After a year I was given 25% of the business and then have had to purchase my other percentages.  I enjoy the work and it is very financially rewarding.  I don't get as much time off to hit the golf course as I want since I generally work 6 days a week, but I usually play every Sunday.

I'm a community manager at the Belgian National Railway Company. I got a bachelor in IT-webdevelopment and I'm passionate about economy, finances, IT and communication. So if the opportunity shows up I would love to do a master in economy or communication one day. :)

Hey all, new, joined last week.  Figured I'd introdue myself.  Currently in the Army as an 11B.  My ETS is within a year so I'll be heading back home to MD within the year.  Been golfing since 15, but finally dedicating to the game.   Look forward to talking golf here.

I'm an engineer for T-Mobile. Usually I'm on the forum in the evening on my phone more often than my laptop. Wish I could play a lot now often than I do! Used to play about 25x a year, now it's maybe 5. Ouch! 2 little ones at home

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum. I'm from Massachusetts and work as an operator for a manufacturing facility in Plymouth. We use a process known as "Photo-Etching" to make precision metal parts, RFI and EMI shields, as well as flex circuits. Our customers include the United States Department of Defense, aerospace and medical industries, energy and power sectors and many more fields that require ISO controlled documentation and product. We also Electroplate and Electropolish, Laser-cut, and provide coating/painting properties for our customers.

With that said this is the most intriguing job I've ever had, loads of opportunity and always something to learn. Although being an operator for 7 years wasn't part of the plan, it's a very rewarding job knowing every order I produce is moving other industries forward and improving the world we live in.

I hope to get to know you all well and maybe play a round or 2 with some of you. Anyone from the South Shore in MA should get in touch with me, I'm available in the afternoons during the week and any weekend.

P.S. In closing ; Treat your operators as if they might be your boss someday, because this kid is climbing the ladder B-) .

    • Don't worry about the pain in your neck, it will go away in about 4 weeks....
    • My personal favorite! No in all honesty I feel the same way @iacas feels, they are purely functional until they are so gross that they must be tossed. Working at a golf course for all these years has ruined me from buying hats when I play different courses. I know how much those hats really cost wholesale, and I have a hard time paying $35-$40 for a $13 hat, I don't care if it does say Pinehurst no 2 on it.

    • According to Whoop anyways. I was surprised to see that as well. When I'm sitting or laying down, I'm around 45-60 bpm, so wouldn't be surprised if it got lower in sleep. Never really seen this data before, so still learning about my baseline.
    • Why does the outdoors thing "matter" a little bit? Four NHL teams exploring possibility of playing outdoor home games In an effort to try and get some fans back in the seats, four NHL teams are investigating the possibility of hosting their home games outdoors for the coming season. 1 p.m. Thursday: Elliotte Friedman reported on Thursday that at least four NHL teams are exploring the possibility of playing their home games outdoors if it will allow them to have fans in the building. The teams are the Ducks, Bruins, Kings ... and the Penguins. Friedman reported that the Penguins have looked into both Heinz Field and PNC Park. The Steelers schedule overlapping with the possible start of an NHL season would obviously be an issue. That's one of the reasons why. Us being golfers is another reason why I'm curious about any super-spreader events that occurred outside only (or even 85%+).
