Your missing out on some cool charts...
Kyle Roberts a.k.a. K-Rob
How old are you and what's your occupation?
29 I am a Production/Color Correction Artist. Yeah, no one probably knows what that is, but I work at an Ad Agency in Seattle, WA.
When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
I started playing younger than I would probably like to admit. But, I have been playing since I was around 8. My current Handicap just jumped up to a 15.7. =(
How often do you play?
Not enough. At least a few times a month, but I have a new son so rounds are dropping fast.
Tell me about a great shot you've made.
On #9 at Chambers Bay it wasn't a magnificent shot but I hadn't been playing that well and it probably the most intimidating hole on the course and I stuck it within 10 ft to the pin. Shots like that get you to come back next week.
What is your best golf memory?
Probably going on my first big golf trip to AZ with the family and playing some desert golf with my dad. (Even though we almost ran out of balls.)
What is your "home" course?
I probably play Auburn Golf Course the most or Riverbend.
What ball do you play?
It varies quite a bit. I know this is bad but everyone always buys me golf balls for gifts so I have to use them. Right now I have Bridgstone E6 and Pro V1's in the bag.
5 year old Cobra driver. Cheap Ben Hogan irons. Taylor Hybrids. Oddyssey #9 putter and rusty Cleveland wedges. I plan on going to get custom fit for the first time in November. Everyone tells me it will be worth it.
Don't really have a favorite. I loved Couples growing up since he was from Washington. But I like watching some of the younger guys coming onto the scene like Ben Crane, Aaron Baddely and Hunter Mahan.
Favorite course you've played?
TPC Snoqualmie Ridge
Dream course you've yet to play?
This is a tough question. I don't want to come up with something typical, but Augusta would have to be my answer. Just watching the players on it every year you begin to think you know the course, but I know this wouldn't be the case if I played it.
Best round ever- and what course?
84 at Riverbend, but its a pretty easy course. I am pretty proud of hitting 89 at Chambers Bay. Especially cause it had rained so much and the fairways were freshly sanded.
What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
This is easy, PUTTING.
Tell me a story.
I guess I could talk about how I love updating my scores on this site. (No brown nosing.) I feel that it has added a lot of drive in my game to see how low I can get my handicap and watch my other stats like GIRs and Fairways hit get lower. Before, I just went out and played and always came back pissed off cause I know I could do better. This is still the case but after entering my score and seeing improvement it gives me motivation to improve.
