Your missing out on some cool charts...
Matt Bills a.k.a. mbills1015
Our Golfer of the Week this time around is a frequent oob contributor, Matt Bills. I know him personally- and I must say, he swings like Michelle Wie. Take that how you want.

How old are you and what's your occupation?
25 - Financial Specialist Wachovia Bank

When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
When I was 10 and oobgolf has me currently at a 12.8

How often do you play?
Right now about 1 or maybe 2 times a month, I would love to play more but it unfortunately just doesnGÇÖt happen

What is your best golf memory?
Probably when a couple buddies and I drove out to Bethpage Black and took on the monster. Fantastic course, and I should be visiting there again before the PGA comes back in 2009.

Tell me about a great shot you made.
I'll tell you about a great shot my buddy made! We were playing Bethpage and my friend is not a good golfer, he was borrowing his boss's clubs and carrying case. By carrying case I mean the type of bag you would bring your clubs on an airplane with (that's right he used it on the course). So he's probably 30 or so over par and steps up to the last par three on the back nine and sticks a shot no lie 2 inches from the cup. It was probably one of the best moments I have had on a golf course.

What is your "home" course?
Hate to say it but right now, Overlook Golf Course, Lancaster PA

What ball do you play?
I normally play the Noodle, b/c they are long and straight. I do have some Titleist NXT's that should get some play this summer.

Clubs?
Taylor Made R580 Driver Fujikura stiff shaft, Taylor made 360 irons, Odyssey two ball putter

Favorite pro?
Fred Couples --- how can you not love that manGÇÖs swing and he refuses to wear a glove (love it!)

Favorite course you've played?
Bethpage Black

Dream course you've yet to play?
Pinehurst No. 2 or Pebble Beach. I would be happy with either

Best round ever- and what course?
Wow that's tough I have shot 78 or 77 a few times, but lately my game has struggle with the lack of playing. So I'm gonna answer most fun round which would have to be any time I get out and play with my Dad. I've never lost to him and the last time we played only beat him by a stroke, it was a close one.

What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
PUTTING! I am a terrible putter. From tee to green I can hang with just about anyone. Once I am on the green I just fall apart. My 2.08 putting average is misleading because I average 2.08 from about 10-15 ft and inGǪ I know its bad.

Thanks!
