Your missing out on some cool charts...
Jim Fisher a.k.a. jfisher7829
How old are you and what's your occupation?
I’m 32 years old and I’m the Program Director for “Rush Radio 99.5 WRNO” in New Orleans.
When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
I started playing golf after Hurricane Gustav in September of 2008. I had just moved to New Orleans and my family was still living out of state, and I need a hobby to keep me out of the French Quarter. I’m a 9.9 right now.
How often do you play?
2 to 3 times a week.
Tell me about a great shot you've made.
I was on a par 3 at Rockwood Municipal in Fort Worth and I had pushed my tee shot into a tree and about 35 or 40 yards from the hole. I was playing with my brother in law (oobgolfer: glenrich) and I was ticked because I had been trying to help him learn the game and I really wasn’t playing well. I set up over the ball, and hit a high pitch and landed 3 feet from the cup and sucked back into the hole. I was much happier after that.
What is your best golf memory?
My first eagle. I was on a short par 4 and I hit my tee shot to 77 yards out. It had been raining a lot and everything was really soft, so I hit a high draw with the hope of landing it somewhere close to the hole. After the ball came off, I knew I hit it well but couldn’t find my ball. I looked around for a minute only to find that I holed it out.
What is your "home" course?
Covington Country Club in Covington, LA.
What ball do you play?
Taylormade TP Black. Cheaper version of a Pro V1.
Driver: Nike Dymo2 with an Adilia NV Shaft
3 wood: Taylormade R9
3 hybrid: Taylormade Raylor
4 hybrid: Taylormade Rescue
5 iron thru AW: Taylormade 2009 Burner
SW: Mizuno MP
Heavy Putter C2-DF
I love watching Anthony Kim. He’s a short guy that hits it a long way, and I like the way he grips down on every club.
Favorite course you've played?
TPC Louisiana in New Orleans. I played it right before the Zurich last year and it was in great shape.
Dream course you've yet to play?
Bethpage Black. I just want to see if I can come close to breaking 100.
Best round ever- and what course?
76 at Rockwood Municipal in Fort Worth.
What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
I want to get more precise with my iron play and go after more flags.
Tell me a story.
I remember taking my son to the golf course for the first time. He’s was only 3 at the time, but he just loved it so much. He has the kids clubs now, and has started playing a little bit. I didn’t spend a lot of time with my father, and I guess it’s just comforting to know my son and I will always at lest have golf.

Congrats on GOW nomination. I've played Rockwood a few times, I think its a good course for the money.
Mr VanityHandicap says:
hit a high draw from 77 yds out? and it went in the hole? comeon
Ok so im not alone and thinking to myself, "a high draw from 77 yards", how does that even make sense. ITS 77 YARDS!! U cant hit a draw from there. Awesome eagle, but lets say I hat a pitch from 77 yards and it went in for my 1st eagle.
