    Name: Oblong
    Age: 47
    Time Zone: Central

    Teams: Titans, ManUnited

    Heard about ya'll in the EA TW forums.

    Leagues: I'm a founding member of The Country Club, a privately run league for sim-golfers that has about 80 participating members.

    How long playing: Got my first game system for Christmas 1977 - Colecovision Pong and have been hooked ever since. Started playing online with the XBox when that launched.

    Type of Player: Social but also competitive. Always gravitate to the highest difficulty in golf which best represents the real sport.

    Age Match: I'm older than your average age, but most of my current friends I golf with fall right in line with your demographic so I'd say I can get along fine with ya'll young pups. ;)

    Rules/Guidelines: No problem following rules. My one question on the TW league would be that it mentions playing on Tour Pro but the new truly sim-based mode for TW12 will be Tournament Mode. I'd be more likely to play under that difficulty level if it offers a better sim experience.

    About me: Live in TN, married 23 years to a lovely lady, 2 boys (1 a freshman in college, 1 a HS senior). Play all types of games but mostly TW golf. Hobbies right now are being a tennis fanatic. I'm also an EA SPORTS Game Changer and have been to quite a few TW Community Days at EA Tiburon.

    Active: I'm pretty active as a moderator on the EA Forums as well as the leagues at The Country Club. My activity here would likely depend on my enjoyment here which is a bit hard to tell being new. From what I've seen thus far, it looks like a great website with a great bunch of like-minded people.

    What I want: Just sharing enjoyment of the game with others as well as getting thoughts from others on how the game can be improved.

    Situation rule breaking: If a member broke the rules in a tourney I would first make sure they were aware they were doing so. If they didn't care I would report it to whoever handles that type of thing.

    League interest: TW PGA TOUR Golf.

    Thanks!
