Hi All,

My name is Dustin and I'm an avid golfer (probably why most of us are here).

I'm about a 9 handicap, right now the computer says 9.1. I don't feel like I'm quite that good, but I've been tracking for about a year now and that's what it comes out to, so that's what it is. Most of the time, I'm a low 80s type player. The rounds in the 70s can be elusive.

I played golf for my high school, but then didn't play in college. Now I'm an accountant and during the summer have Fridays off, which is when I get some extra golf in. I try to practice after work two days a week in addition to any rounds I play on the weekends.

Other than golf, I'm a big New York sports fan, specifically Yankees, Jets, Knicks.

Hope to learn some things from some of you guys and also contribute any knowledge I have where possible. I don't exactly consider myself a good golf teacher, but I have been playing for most of my life (started when I was in grade school and am 24 now).

Thanks for the welcomes guys.

Kujan, where to you play up there? The municipal courses? My girlfriend lives in Bergen and I'm always looking for places to play up that way since I'm not from that area.

Flanders, Sunset Valley, Berkshire Valley are good county courses. I also play at Rutgers where I work. RU is in great shape.

Let me add Black Bear ... about 15 minutes farther north than Berkshire (which is also a great course), but it's a nice course & usually can get deals on golfnow.com.    Welcome to the OP !

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
