Your missing out on some cool charts...
Todd C. Robinson a.k.a. ToddRobb
ToddRobb is a regular on oobgolf so it's about time we featured him as the GoW and I'm glad we did. I now understand the essence of life and golf thanks to his analogy between golf and sex. Enjoy!
How old are you and what's your occupation?
I am 48 years old and I am the owner of a web design and internet marketing company.
When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
1987. My handicap hovers around 5.
How often do you play?
I get to play 3 or 4 times per week (sometimes 5).
Tell me about a great shot you've made.
I was late for my tee time with my regular group and they teed off, a short par 5 1st hole. I was allowed to "catch up" with them so I hit my drive and for my second shot I hit a perfect three wood to 5 feet while they were standing on the green waiting.
What is your best golf memory?
17 years ago I played with my future father in-law to ask for his daughters hand in marriage. I was so nervous the whole round that I wound up shooting a 90 something. He shot 75 which was his age at the time.
What is your "home" course?
Francis Byrne Golf Course in West Orange, New Jersey
What ball do you play?
Pinnacle Gold Yellow. I love the yellow balls just for the mere fact of identifying it from a longer distance away. Since Srixon and Bridgestone have come out with a yellow ball, the ribbing from my regular group has pretty much stopped.
Drivers: SMT Nemesis
Drivers: TaylorMade Burner Superfast 2.0 TP
Fairway Woods: Callaway Big Bertha Steelhead III
Hybrids: Nike CPR 2
Irons: TaylorMade rac HT
Wedges: Cleveland 588 GunMetal
Putters: Ping G2 C10
I've been using a long putter for 24 years, I picked one up at Nevada Bob's and have been using one ever since. The one that I am using now I've been using for about 6 years.
I'm not much of a "favorite" kind of a guy, I am more of a fan of the game than the players. I don't much care to know the players and I would have to know someone in order for them to be a favorite. Although I do appreciate being witness to Tiger's greatness (Tiger 1.0 ).
Favorite course you've played?
I always say that golf courses are like having sex, sometimes it's better than others but it's always good.
Dream course you've yet to play?
I would like to have sex with, I mean play Augusta National.
Best round ever- and what course?
69 at Hendricks Field Golf Course Belleville, New Jersey.
What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
Sand play. My sand game in one word sucks, I don't practice it anywhere near to as much as I should.
Tell me a story.
I recently played a round with someone that I had not played with in 23 years, not a very nice guy. At that time I was just starting and not very good, he was shooting in the low 90's, at that time I remember being extremely impressed because I hadn't come close to breaking 100 yet. Fast forward to 3 weeks ago, he's still not a very nice guy, I shoot 74 and he shoots 90 something. That felt pretty good.

love the analogy! so true
My boss always said that about pizza and sex :)
There are two types of Oobers; those who I'd play a round with and those who I wouldn't. I would play a round with ToddRobb.
Welcome to the GOW Club. Enjoy all the perks and privileges that come with the exalted position!
Did your group give you a 2 stroke penalty for being late to your tee-time:) I could just see you sink the eagle putt....then you hear "nice par".

U mean the part about 3or 4 times a week (sometimes 5)?
congrats toddrob...well deserving GOW...
you have to post post your 69 so you claim top spot on the leaderboard at hendricks...i'm sure you remember your scores...
Great stories and analogies. I need to work on some or both of them lol
Thanks for all the congrats.
Well deserved to a real adddict.
I can validate that Todd loves that Yellow ball and that his sand play sucks. However, he is a great playing partner and a good guy. he clearly lied, though, about favorite golfer. For 8 years, it was Tiger this and Tiger that. Now, he is a closet Fowler guy. He has no respect for Phil or Sergio.
C'mon with the story though. You have lots of good ones, why focus on a knucklehead? Strange for such a postive guy. See you on the course soon.
