Golf: Breaking 80 - Consistently

Over the past three years I've become pretty obsessed interested in golf. I've played off and on for years, but three years ago took my first lesson. In 2010 I had a nine-hole playing lesson with Corey Pion at River Strand Golf Club and its been non-stop golf ever since. This year I'm breaking 80 (which I did on 10/12/12) and this section covers my progress toward that goal and beyond. Next goal: Single digit handicap.

Where have I been? Building the Ranger Golf GPS App

Posted on July 1st, 2013

WHERE HAVE I BEEN It has been quite a while since I wrote my last post. I’ve been playing golf and practicing (and making some interesting progress with my swing) but I’ve also been building a GPS App for the driving range. Ranger: Driving Range Golf GPS was built with a simple, single goal…. become the definitive GPS App for the driving range. With that in mind, I tried to… Continue reading >

Finally took it to the range

Posted on April 3rd, 2013

How it went Great range session today, one of the best I’ve had in a very long time. For whatever reason, my hang up is taking it from the indoor hitting bay to the range. And of course on to the course. But today was a different story. I managed to work my way through the bag hitting solid shots with every club, even the driver. Some keys for me:… Continue reading >

Best I’ve been swinging the club lately

Posted on February 24th, 2013

Over the past few weeks I’ve been working hard on my swing. It feels like a year ago where I’m trying to make a major change in my swing and I’m just getting as many swings in as posible to break old habits. When I execute the new-ish swing, the results are excellent. A more penetrating flight, a nice draw, better balance and just a crisp strike. Been focusing mostly… Continue reading >

Incredible Opportunity to Participate in Freakonomics Golf Experience

Posted on January 23rd, 2013

The Experience The Freakonomics Golf Experience was a 3-day golf event at PGA Village in Port Saint Lucie. Luke Donald, his coach Pat Goss, Stephen Dubner & Steve Levitt (authors of Freakonomics and very great guys) are combining forces to write a golf book and this weekend was setup to provide a ton of data. I found out about the opportunity via a tweet from Pat Goss, applied and then… Continue reading >

Played PGA Village Ryder Course – Port Saint Lucie, FL (86)

Posted on January 21st, 2013

The Course The Ryder course is a fun course to play and one that you can definitely score on if you are playing well. The fairways have generous landing areas and in comparison to Wanamaker, feel like you’ve got an entire football field out there to land it. I didn’t get the sense that the course had as much undulation to it in the fairways, but I could be wrong.… Continue reading >

Played PGA Village Wanamaker Course – Port Saint Lucie, FL (86)

Posted on January 20th, 2013

The Course The Wanamaker Course at PGA Village is by far the best of the three main courses. It isnt completely fair for me to say that without playing the back nine of the Dye course, but I think its safe to say. The course is the most challenging (on paper) of the courses at PGA Village and it played as difficult as we expected. There were some fantastic holes,… Continue reading >

Played PGA Village Dye Course – Port Saint Lucie, FL (39, 9 holes)

Posted on January 18th, 2013

The Course PGA Village as a whole is incredible. With five courses and a learning center, this place is a golfer’s dream. We were only scheduled to play the front nine on the Dye course and unfortunately, I don’t think the front nine was the best nine. I’m a big Arthur Hills fan, and he didn’t disappoint. The course felt links-like, with undulating fairways, natural grasses, and large waste areas.… Continue reading >

Played Half Moon Bay Ocean Course – San Francisco, CA (86)

Posted on January 16th, 2013

The Course The Ocean Course at Half Moon Bay might be the most beautiful setting for a golf course I’ve played yet. Its right on the water and almost every hole has a glimpse of the ocean, with the finishing holes running right next to cliffs. The view alone is worth playing here. A links style course designed by Arthur Hills, The Ocean Course does a great job of feeling… Continue reading >

About Me

I'm the Vice President of Digital Innovation and Mobile, which is probably the coolest job title out there. You can learn more about my work in emerging technology on the About or Work Pages.

As for this site, it's a place where I can jot ideas down and share some of the stuff I'm working on. The views are my own and some of them might not make much sense, but hey, that's part of the process. I'm also working toward being a single digit handicap golfer, so I post a lot about my golf game.
