Jon Webber is the founder of Out Of Bounds Golf. He started this website from the ground up and loves everything about golf and testing out the latest clubs and gear.
I first started getting into golf when I was pretty young. My Grandpa was a big golfer and I think that’s where the interest came from. I was pretty into it for a number of years but stopped playing for a number of years because of other commitments. It wasn’t until 2018 that I really got back into it and that’s when I created this website.
Being away from the game for that long, my game definitely suffered and I had a lot of questions about what gear I should get and how to improve my game. At the time, almost all of the websites out there seemed to be for low handicaps and scratch players. I had a hard time finding the answers I was after, and that’s what sparked the idea of starting this site.
Back in 2018, I normally shot between 100 and 105 on a par 72 golf course. That’s actually pretty average for the weekend golfer and it didn’t take very long to break through 100 consistently. Since then, I’ve worked my way through the 90s and can now shoot in the 80s consistently. My goal is to continue getting better and break into the 70s in the next couple of years.
I’ve had lessons, took online courses, and watched hundreds of videos online about improving my game. Some ideas worked while others haven’t. My goal is to share what actually worked for me and my game. My best round to date 12 over par but my best 9 holes was 4 over par.
I’m also really into testing out different clubs, balls, and other golf products. We all know what the pros use, but I really wanted to figure out what beginners, high handicaps, and mid handicaps should be using. That’s why I’m always trying out new clubs and balls to see what works the best.
Along with the Out Of Bounds Golf website and YouTube channel, I have another hobby-based website that focuses on outdoor hobbies such as fishing, camping, and survival. It is called Backcountry Cariboo. Check it out if you’re interested in stuff like that.
