Share Your Name, Folks!

One of the nice things about the Internet is that nobody has to know who you are. You can pop in, post your thoughts, and leave, all in relative obscurity.

One of the bad things about the Internet is that nobody has to know who you are. You can pop in, post your thoughts, and leave, all in relative obscurity.

I recently asked several of our Forum Leaders and Supporters to take the small step of adding at least their first name to their signatures.

I'd like to ask everyone else to do that as well (if you're not sure when you get a signature, read: ). Just add your first name to your signature. It likely won't really identify you to anyone, but it will let people know that there's a real person named Steve or Tony or Ivan or Ulas on the other end of the discussion. It'll let people address you by your name rather than "golfer12683" or whatever you've chosen as your username. It'll bring a bit of humanity to the discussion.

So, please consider adding your first name to your signature, and thank you.

I like this. I always prefer addressing people by their names instead of their usernames. I already made it easy for everybody else...

Done, I think I've signed ~Tom B. on many of my posts already anyway.

My 3 sisters & 2 Bros. in laws still call me Thomas, which is fine,

But "Tommy" is like Nails on a Chalkboard to me.

It seems I have many names but my real name is Mike.

My Boy Scouts call me Mr Mike, not sure why it has been this way for the past 11 years. Never liked being call by my last name!

My son calls me Daddy O

My wife has many names for me, but I am sure you all can figure that one out. :censored:

hello everyone , I'm John and i just registered so the thing with the signature might last a little while. I'm a newbie here as you can see and also on the tee, got recently pulled in by my brother in law, now i'm not sure if its because of the thrill of playing golf or to get away from my sister LOL, long story short its cool to be here where i can read many many useful threads and learn every day about golf and hopefully that will improve my game. and thank you all in advance for having the patience with me as a beginner :D

Hello everyone, my name is Bill. I spend my summers at Mable Lake in British Columbia golfing & boating. I also golf around Calgary, Phoenix & Palm Springs.

The sandtrap is where I need to go to find rules I’m unfamiliar with.

    • Because everyone gets bored of blue skies now and again! Crazy winds and serious mood-lighting! First hole has the signature lighthouse behind the green and a great linksy fairway, second is a 114 yard par three that played about 140 yesterday.  
    • A good afternoon of birthday practice yesterday. Did a lot of short game work and went out to the course way after the last tee time to put them in practice in 'real' situations. Finally I did a nice putting drill to gauge areas to focus on - this will be a bit of a regular thing that I go back to now and again to judge progress. A few photos from on-course work: Downwind - 15mph and dispersion from shots at 125 yards, 115, 100 and 75. Nearly pulled the wedge from 75 into a bunker, which would have been horrendous, so that's a bit worse than it looks. Delighted with the rest and all on the middle tier of a three tier green. After about 10 minutes of practising, from 50 yards using a variety of clubs (furthest to nearest) - putter, wedge, hybrid chip. Had to come up a big tier, so pretty pleased with this. Hybrid chip was the right play in that it took the tier out of play, but my default would have always been wedge. Just nice to add another shot to my game - although it will need more practice. Putting: Just need to make more inside 10 feet. Great not to have any 3 putts though! Hole Ft Break Score 1 Score 2 Score 3 Score 4 Score 5 1.         3ft Straight 1         2.         6ft R/L uphill 1         3.         9ft L/R downhill 2         4.         12ft R/L downhill 2         5.         15ft L/R 2         6.         4ft slight break downhill 1         7.         8ft R/L 2         8.         12ft L/R 2         9.         16ft L/R downhill 2         10.     20ft L/R uphill 2         11.     5ft slight break 2         12.     10ft L/R 2         13.     15ft R/L 2         14.     20ft Straightish 1         15.     25ft Double Break 2         16.     6ft R/L downhill 2         17.     33ft Slight uphill 2         18.     45ft Slight downhill 2         Total 32         Strokes Gained -2.81        
    • 26/2/17 - more slow takeaway work. Heading to the range later and will spend time really working on transitioning this work to full swing. I think the feel needs to be that my left arm is glued to my stomach, but will check with video later.
    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination.
