“The idea for a site like GolfStinks came to me one day when I realized the vast majority of golfers are, like me, pretty wretched at this game…I wanted a place where you could appreciate golf, but still be cool with the fact that you stink at it.“

Most Interesting Golf Experience:
I was down on Hilton Head Island, SC in the spring of 2001 boogie-boarding in the surf just after a round of golf, when I was stung on the hand by a stingray. I didn’t really know what hit me until 5 hours later, when the pain wasn’t going away, my buddies took me to the emergency room and the ER nurse told me what happened: “Yep, that was a stingy” she said. I had to soak my hand in scalding water for the next two nights (please don’t try to ice-it like I did), get a tetanus shot and take antibiotics for 15 days. Good thing it stung me on the top of the hand, otherwise I’d have never been able play the next 36 holes!
