At Golfer Geeks, we are dedicated to the subjects golfers enjoy reading about and things golfers enjoy buying.
Hey, I’m Jamie Boudreaux- a young 46-year-old internet entrepreneur. I’ve played golf on and off, mostly on, since I was 23 years old. I’ve been online for about two and a half years now, but somehow never thought of building a website around one of my actual passions.
My Golfing Life
Like I mentioned above- I started playing golf when I was 23 years old. I was in college and had no money to speak of. The uninitiated would think that would hinder you from playing golf- not so. I like to say that golf can be as cheap or as expensive as you want it to be. You can get fantastic second-hand clubs online on sites like Ebay, or any number of online retailers like globalgolf.com. You can walk many courses at very reasonable rates, and get good exercise to boot.
I overcame mediocre hand-eye coordination because I had a pretty good base of strength and flexibility from working out my entire life. I’ve spent most of my golfing life at about a 10 or so handicap. At my best, I was between a 5 and six handicap a few years ago- which I owe directly to one of the products I’ll be reviewing right here in these pages, but that melted away pretty quick after my daughter was born. On a couple of occasions, I’ve taken lessons from some pretty good pros.
I’ve tried many of the more popular golf aids, and a few of them even worked. I’m going to be highlighting those here on this site, as well as new products in the golf world. I’ll also be reviewing golf instruction products, golf clubs, shoes, sunglasses, clothes, etc. We are going to make every effort to cover as much ground as possible on these pages. We’ll try to make the content engaging and helpful. Not only that, but we will be looking for the best deals on these products and posting those links right in, or below, the content, so you can go straight to the source and save time and money.
Like I said initially, golf can be as expensive or as inexpensive as you want to make it. I’ll give you both options, along with my recommendations. At some point, I may invite some friends along to cough up their opinion since it will be hard for me to get to everything I will want to all by my lonesome.
My Non-Golfing Life
I live in an area of Houston called Cy-fair, which is made up of several communities on the northwest side of
Houston. I’ve been here with my wife since 2010, and we have a three and a half-year-old daughter and twin two and half-year-old boys. Outside of my family, I thoroughly enjoy entrepreneurship- especially internet marketing, personal development, fitness, golf, and barbeque.
Because I wish to deliver the best product I’m capable of, I encourage feedback- positive or negative. Just don’t be a douche. You can stand out by being thoughtful and articulate. Help me make this a place you want to bookmark and come back to again and again.
