Your missing out on some cool charts...
Victor Andrade a.k.a. vja430
How old are you and what's your occupation?
I am 35 and I am accountant for Outdoor Advertising Company called Van Wagner Communications, LLC.
When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
I started playing golf about 3 years ago full blast. I had previously played occasionally with a couple of friends. But I hook up with some old friends that started playing every weekend and we haven't stop since that day. It happen by conscience since one of my friends bailed at the last minute. My buddies are part of my group Stalkers Tour.
How often do you play?
Every Sunday but try to sneak in a round here and there. My job doesn't really give the time to go out and play more often. But I am just a call away from tee off.
Tell me about a great shot you've made.
On a golf trip to South Carolina at Myrtlewood Golf Club on the PineHills course on the #9 hole Par 5 I hit my driver off the tee and land on the fairway. I pull out my 5 Wood and hit a tremendous shot from about 240 yards. Hit a fade onto to green and end up like 40 feet from the hole. But unfortunatly miss the eagle put and ended up 3 putting for the par.
What is your best golf memory?
Last year when I went to the U.S. Open at Bethpage. And I followed the group of Tiger Woods, Padrig Harrington and Angel Cabrera. That was crazy since it had rain all week and I followed the group everyone else wanted to see as well. The course was a mess plus all of the traffic but I will never get the experience. It was even more weird since I went to the event alone. But I got to see Tiger in person and I was amazed how easy he makes it look on every shot.
What is your "home" course?
I really don't have one since we play all of NYC public courses. My favorite out all of them is Clearview Golf Course in Bayside, NY.
What ball do you play?
Callaway Hot Bite 3 piece ball. I had previously played TaylorMade Burner Ball.
Driver: Taylormade SuperTri 9.5
Fairway Woods: TaylorMade Burner woods (3 & 5)
Irons: Callaway X-22 (5-pw)
Wedges: Titleist Vokey Milled Black Nickel (52, 56, 60)
Hybrid: TaylorMade Burner Hybrid (#4 22 degree)
Putter: TaylorMade Rossa Daytona
Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia
Favorite course you've played?
Mystic Dunes Golf Club in Orlando, Florida.
Dream course you've yet to play?
Pebble Beach and Augusta National, of course.
Best round ever- and what course?
I shot a 22 over on Dyker Beach Golf Course in Brooklyn, NY. I really think if I play more often I would be better but that will come with time.
What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
My short game. I think the short game is the most important aspect of the game for those who are weekend warriors. My golf buddies and I just started counting and keeping tracking of all of the aspects of the game. We all want to be better and improve our games. I will keep you posted.
Tell me a story.
At the US Open last year, I was waiting for group of Woods, Harrington and Cabrera to come thru the first hole. As they were teeing off on Hole #1, I knew that Tiger was first on tee box since he had just birdied 18. Tiger drive was in the middle of the fairway and Harrington went thru the fairway to rough. Cabrera was next on the tee box and smoked a drive on a fade about 340 yards. I couldn't believe how far that drive was since I was standing about 140 yards to green. What a shot!!! And he ended up with a birdie.
