Beautiful... the ocean looks nice, too!
Your missing out on some cool charts...
Kris Eszlinger a.k.a. Longball
This week's GOW plays golf once a week in San Diego and has a 10 handicap. Maybe I need to do what he does for a living. Let's see... Website marketing company?... KRIS- call us!

How old are you and what's your occupation?
I am 28 years old and work for a Website marketing company in San Diego.

When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
I started playing golf when I was 25 years old.
oobgolf has him at 10.3

How often do you play?
Once a week.

Tell me about a great shot you've made.
I made a pretty sweet shot about 3 years ago, back when I was borrowing clubs from friends and wearing tennis shoes on the course, basically back before I knew what golf really was. I was playing team best ball with a buddy of mine, I was about 80 yards out and really didn't even know what club to use, but my buddy said to use I think a pitching wedge or something. So I wacked away with this club I had maybe used once and hit a pretty good shot, I had thought. Unfortunately I couldn't really see where the ball landed because the green was elevated. Sure enough we got on the green and I couldn't find the ball and anybody who has golfed for a while knows that when you can't find your ball that you really hit a bad shot or the ball was in the whole. Luckily for me the ball was resting right at the bottom of the cup. After seeing the ball in the cup my buddy was in the air jumping and congratulating me on my shot. I was kind of sitting there dumb founded and was thinking to my self, hey that was pretty cool, I might actually enjoy playing this sport. I haven't stopped playing since.

What is your best golf memory?
I seem to have great memories every time I am on the course, but I would have to say just being able to play golf with my good buddies and my dad is going to be one of the things once I hang up the golf cleats that I will always remember.

What is your "home" course?
I would have to say Encinitas Ranch

What ball do you play?
I play a Titleist Pro V1.

I have a combo, but mostly Taylor Made.

Favorite pro?
Favorite pro golfer, got to say Tiger.

Favorite course you've played?
I like Maderas, and also Barona.

Dream course you've yet to play?
Pebble Beach and hopefully get rich some day and play Augusta.

Best round ever- and what course?
Well actually the round that I posted this week was my best score ever. But, I think the best round I ever played was at Redhawk in Temecula, where I had my first eagle.

What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
Short game and approach shots.

Tell me a story.
Well there was this one time at band camp. Just kidding no a story, well I can tell you that I have many stories especially about golf, but I would rather not tell them to save the innocents of the people I golf with and not get in trouble with the courses that I play at. Hopefully I will be able to tell you a story some day about my hole in one, when I get it.

... okay, I still laughed that time, but PLEASE- no more "one time at band camp" jokes!

Thanks Longball! ...If that is your name!
