Who's behind IndifferentStrokes.com

What’s this all about?

Hi, My name is Matt Spear and I am the brains of this operation. I hope you enjoy reading this blog and find some joy and maybe even some knowledge as you browse around. You are probably wondering what this site is all about, sure it’s a clever name, but what’s your motive? Good question, allow me to elaborate.

Who am I?

Well that is a loaded question isn’t it? Let’s start with who I am not. I am not a golf expert. I am not a golf Pro. I am not associated with any golf manufacturers or companies. The closest I have come to being an industry insider was 3 years on a grounds crew in college. I’m just a normal guy with an unhealthy obsession with golf.

For a few years I have had the idea of creating a golf site as an outlet for my golf thoughts and to possibly share my journey as I try to become a low handicap player. Recently I have become a father and don’t have as much time to get out and play. I do however, still thinks about golf far too often. I have a hard time sleeping when I know I have a tee time the next morning. My wife laughs at me when I lay out my golf clothes the night before and wonders why I can wake up at 4:30 to make a tee time an hour away but I can’t get up at 6:30 for work each day. I have a true interest in all things golf and strive to obtain information that will help me improve year after year. In my situation, with limited time to practice, improvement is a marathon and certainly not a sprint. With all of the golf advice out there it’s easy to be confused and stray off target. Hopefully this blog can provide some useful information, product reviews, practice techniques and ideas, etc. I won’t cover any tour news as that is better left to the experts. My goal is to increase my knowledge of how to improve my handicap and maybe help you along the way. If you do find the site useful or have any recommendations, feel free to reach out.

Why so Indifferent?

Truth is I strive to be indifferent in golf and keep my emotions in check. I often struggle with throwing away a good round because I know I need a strong finish to shoot a low number or personal best. Here are some synonyms for indifferent: mediocre, ordinary, average, middling, middle-of-the-road, uninspired, undistinguished, unexceptional, unexciting, unremarkable, run-of-the-mill, pedestrian, prosaic, lackluster, forgettable, amateur. If you could describe my golf using these words, sign me up. Boring golf usually leads to low scores. 

A note about reviews:

This site contains product reviews. Please remember I am not a golf expert. I am indeed indifferent and am not trying to push any products or tell you they will lower your scores. I will strive to provide unbiased information and allow you to form your own opinions of any products mentioned on the site.
