I started playing golf when I was pretty young. My Grandpa was a big golfer and I think that’s where the interest came from. I played quite a bit when I was young, but stopped playing for several years because of other commitments. It wasn’t until 2016 that I got back into it and ended up starting Out Of Bounds Golf two years later.

Being away from the game for that long, my game definitely suffered. 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 seemed to be for low handicaps and scratch players. I had a hard time finding the answers I was after, which sparked the idea of starting this site.

Back in 2018, I normally shot close to 100 on a par 72 golf course. That’s 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, taken online courses, and watched hundreds of videos online about improving my game. Some ideas worked while others didn’t. My goal is to share what actually worked for me and my game. My best round to date was 8 over par but my best 9 holes were 3 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 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.

In learning everything there is to know about golf, I have experience with club fitting and testing every possible combination to try and get better. My goal is to share what I’ve learned to, hopefully, help you do the same.

Here are some of his current milestones:

  • Best 18 holes: 80 (par 72)
  • Best 9 holes: +3 (par 72)
  • Top 100 Canadian courses: 9/100

Is This Your Full-Time Job?

Yes, the Out Of Bounds Golf website and YouTube channel take up most of my time.

In 2014, I decided to drop out of university, where I was in the middle of a business degree. Fast forward to 2018, which is when I found content creation and decided to start Out Of Bounds Golf.

What Are Your Golf Goals?

Long story short, I have two main goals when it comes to golf:

  1. To become a scratch golfer
  2. To play the top courses around the world

I still have a long way to go with both, but I’ll get there eventually. I appreciate you stopping by and wish you all the best!
