How long have you been playing golf?

I started playing as a child but didn't play for about a decade until I started working at NYGC. I am sufficiently a beginner again. I have not played since last year due to tennis elbow, and I can finally get back into the swing of things.

How would you characterize you skill level and amount of experience with the game of golf?

Pretty poor aside from putting where I'm fairly good and my course management is rather weak.

What kind of golf meetups are you most interested in?

Mostly pitch and putt at the moment and playing with some folks who I don't work with to improve and not embarrass myself around the scratch and 5 hadicappers that I work with.

On a good day, what do you expect to shoot for 18 holes?

103ish. I have an official handicap of 30.8.

How far can you hit a golf ball?

Before I injured my elbow, I could get it out there around 280 yards. My ball speed numbers were in the low 150's. I just started swinging a golf club again in the past week so I probably can't hit it more than 220 right now.

Introduction

My name is Collin, and I'm the marketing director for New York Golf Center, which is a small regional retail chain of golf stores. I'm 23, and a pretty poor golfer.
