Nice idea Doug. Not much has changed since the golfer of the week article, which ran a long time ago.http://oobgolf.com/content/golfer+of+the+week/3-227-Jess_McPhillips.html Everyone knows what I do for a living except my mom, she still believes I'm the piano player down at the Chicken Ranch. She'd be real disappointed to find out the truth. When I meet people on the golf course on my trips, I tell them I'm a shoe salesman.

Just checked out your old GOW article. I think lots has changed. Bet you aren't playing the same clubs. And I know you have played many new places since. A lot of the new people here didn't know any of that stuff about you. I've been here over 2 1/2 years and I didn't even know your name was Jess. I just know you as Merlin the pilot and the guy I can count on for a good wisecrack. And, one of our Oob team who has been calling out Player. Glad to meet you Jess.

good idea doug...

Oob Screen Name: dartboss04

Name: Jordan

Home: Middletown, CT

Home Course:

None really. This year our work league is moving to Timberlin Golf Course, which is exciting and definitely an upgrade from Southington Country Club last year, so I'll play there a bunch of times. I try to get around all over the state. I joined BAGSCT at the end of last year as well. It is a traveling men's club that gets off on some great courses, public and private. Also, I go play on Cape Cod a few times a year with my Grandpa as well.

Rounds per week: About 2, in season

Rounds per year:

70+ times out last year, but probably won't be close this year, going to be a little more selective. Last year my addiction took over a bit.

Age (Range): almost 30

Work: Business Analyst, Insurance

Years at the Game:

Played a handful of times as a child, but picked up the game more seriously at 13 or 14. I started on my high school golf team, but we weren't that good.

Presently play:

I'm a club rat. Hopefully my wife will never figure out how to look through my individual scores to track the equipment changes.

ceebee I can relate to you I have three grown children and 6 grandchildren, and like you I like the Caribbean. Also, I have played White Witch in Jamaica. I'd say it was one of the top ten I've played. Number ONE would have to be the Four Seasons on Nevis Island, next to St Kitts.

I will be down there mid April, Merlin. Everything I read says MUST play. Should be great. Have not been to St Kitts yet but plenty of time.

I have been to both St Kitts and Nevis. Unfortunately, I played no golf at either. It was before golf was my addiction. I spent a few years living in the islands aboard a boat and sailed to most of the islands in the West Indies from Puerto Rico almost all the way down to Venezuela. Lots of islands, many with great golf courses and I only played one, Mahogany Run on St. Thomas. Only once and not very well. My home base (marina) was in St. Thomas and as a result, I was considered a "local." This allowed me to play for 1/2 price. I can't believe, now that I am so addicted to golf, that I only played just that once. I missed out on a lot of fabulous golf in Paradise. (However, I got in some fantastic sailing and explored some beautiful islands.) Next time I go back, my clubs are coming, for sure.

I rented a 44ft ketch in St Thomas and sailed to several of the islands over a week. I remember we swam ashore on Jost Van Dyke with our passports in ziplock bags held in our teeth. We may have crossed paths down there Doug. That would have been around 1988 I'll have to dig out my logbooks. We went to Foxy's bar and met Foxy himself. There's a bar called the soggy dollar because I guess everybody comes ashore with their money in their bathing suit.

I know Foxy's and Soggy Dollar Bar very well. Been there dozens of times. Soggy's is on White Beach in Yost and Foxy's is on the main harbor. You are correct about swimming into Soggy Dollar. It is a common practice there. New Year's Eve at Foxy's is the biggest party in the Caribbean. I was a charter captain for a few years and my guest's always requested a visit to Foxy's. It's one of the most well-known spots there is. Foxy is available for all to meet. He's now a 75 year old West Indian who---if you didn't know better---looks like he lives under a highway bridge or in a drainage pipe. In actuality he's a cool guy. Just to justify this post on this golf site, I should say, I don't think he plays golf.

Great memories eh Doug? When we left, I made a low pass by their boat. At that time we had an old straight pipe Lear 24. The world's most efficient converter of jet fuel into noise that there is. Oh yeah, I didn't play golf until several years later either.

Hi Guys

My OOB Name is Fireworkz77
Real name Ed.
From Dublin, Ireland

Just a beginner but I absolutely love the game. Playing about 3 years now and am captain of my Jobs golf society. We just played the K Club Ryder Cup Course (which held the Ryder Cup 2006) last Sunday and what a course it is.

Favorite course would have to be The Heritage in Co. Laois. This course was host to the Seve Trophy which is a ryder cup format match between GB & Ire and Europe. You guys ever played in Ireland? You gotta come and check it out
