Gutsy Golf started years ago – around 2011. Since I love golf, I thought I would start a site devoted to it and write about different topics that interest me about the game. My hope is to keep sharing insights, and write about different topics surrounding the game that may be of interest.
I’m sure you’re thinking this site makes loads of money(!) – but I have not really monetized the site, instead focusing more on creating interesting (what I think is interesting and hope others find it to be as well), content that delights and educates readers and lovers of the game. We do make some money through Adsense and affiliate partnerships (like Amazon).
While I like to remain semi-anonymous, I am a 40-something lover of the game, who works as a designer and publisher. In a former life, I played competitively as an amateur and professional golfer (with limited time on a couple of mini-tours, state opens, and teaching the game). After playing professionally, I regained my amateur status. I’ve also had the opportunity to caddy for a couple of LPGA golfers. I’ve worked at golf courses in various capacities from golf course maintenance to teaching professional. I started playing golf at age 13 and was immediately hooked.
Not much. Since I reside in a northern climate, 6-10″ snow is a bit of a hinderance. So, when I can play golf, I get out about 1-2x per month. These days I enjoy practicing the short game whenever I can get out and helping others learn the game that’s been a great blessing to me.
There really isn’t much that compares to venturing out onto a golf course to experience God’s creation. The golf course provides a great escape. The “perfectly” struck golf shot is something that sticks in the memory bank for years and keeps me coming back.
