Current Handicap

Beginner without an official handicap, shooting around +51 (based on the last 3 games I played and extrapolating the 9-hole rounds).

What’s In The Bag


Most of my clubs come from the Tour Edge HP25 full set I bought back in 2017, but I’ve since: swapped the bag, swapped the head covers, stopped carrying the woods, and swapped wedges.

Why I Love Golf

Ever since early 2017 after going to the driving range for the very first time, I’ve been obsessed with golf. Over time I’ve accumulated a few reasons why I love golf.

My Idea of Outdoors

I’m very much an indoors person and have always disliked outdoor activities. Despite that, I really enjoy playing golf and having a tiny taste of what outdoorsy people experience: fresh air and beautiful scenery.


Walking is a pretty healthy activity and is something I need to do to compensate my otherwise sedentary life. But I hate walking for the sake of walking. So golf is the perfect excuse for me to walk a ton.

I'm not opposed to golf carts, but I do think golf is much more enjoyable walking (either carrying the bag or using a push cart / trolley). You also get to better take in and appreciate a golf course architecture when walking.

Hard Yet Rewarding

Golf is frustratingly hard, both mechanically and mentally. Most of the time you’re beating yourself up for not being good enough or making mistakes. But the times when you hit a great shot or score better than expected keep you hooked.

Simple Yet Complicated

I love the fact that at its core, golf is pretty simple: get the ball in the hole with as few strokes as possible.

But I’m also fascinated by complicated it gets: which club to use, play it safe or take a risk, putting vs short game vs long game, so many rules, etc.
