    Englishman in Florida

    Hi all,

    After lurking for a bit reading reviews and other posts, decided to join in the fun today. I am originally from Essex in the UK, but moved to Houston Texas in 2015 and then on to Orlando Florida in 2016.

    Somewhat stereotypical story of someone who played a bit as a kid, was pretty reasonable (15 handicap) but then stopped playing when work and family took over.

    Back playing fairly regularly now and working on getting back to Bogey golf.

    Thanks already for all the info I got as a "guest" hoping to contribute to the fun on THP as a member.

    Have a good day everyone and play well!
    2019 Goals - Break 90, Play 25 rounds, not get drunk on at least 5 of them.

    I play golf because it cannot be won, some just play it better. I keep playing to figure out why.

    Welcome.

    There are several THP'ers in your general vicinity (myself included).

    Feel free to shoot me a PM if you're ever interested in getting a round in.

    I do indeed!

    I support West Ham Utd. Which has prepared me well for a life of disappointment in golf!
    2019 Goals - Break 90, Play 25 rounds, not get drunk on at least 5 of them.
