Spot on! I've also learned alot here and feel I've started to build some great relationships with members. I feel like I've improved my knowledge to where my posting is higher quality thanks to all of you for helping increase my golf IQ. I can't wait for the day I can play a round with some of you! We should do some FJC events like TCC does!
Being Ambassador is so much more than socks. When you put the bag tag and hat on you are an extension of the brand and should hold yourself to a higher standard on and off the course.
My favorite part of being part of the community is that I get to talk to others who LOVE FootJoy (and Titleist) as much as I do! I'm extremely brand loyal and passionate about the brands I support.
I'll admit I've refrained from posting much in the forums lately due to old posts being brought up. I did bring back a few old posts in my early days BUT I only did it when there was an interesting thing to discuss about it. ie discussing clothing and then FJ releases clothing. When the forums are flooded with useless posts saying "cool" and "great, cannot buy one" I disengage because there isn't value for me in reading that stuff. If you want to say "hey that is cool" send that poster a private message or something.
When I joined last year the forums weren't like this and I hope they return to that soon.
I know TCC prevents power posting by the mods not counting certain posts towards the post count. Maybe we need to do that. It's unfortunate but it feels the quality must be preserved.
fyi in case anyone is wondering it's not a memo... it's a mission statement ;-)
Justinu3, this is very helpful to me and many of us newbies. I know your response was about Erics, but reading between the lines helps me.
Yes, definitely, FJ community forum has quality people in it and many of you has helped expand our (mine for sure) golf IQ if you will, and not to mention the good humors as I chuckle behind my desk while everyone here at work goes nuts as our phone rings off the hook. The good attitudes that comes along with it is very cool and I use that term loosely to be funny, although I know I'm not a funny guy nor do I have the gift.
Although I'm a new guy here in FJ community, I still feel new to golf as well. I may have been learning golf since the early '90s but the newness of it still shines in my mind and in my heart. I guess I have a tendency of hanging on to things and people I like for a long time. Like my wife and I have been married almost 27 years. . huh . . . commin up again in June! (yay) . . . (too much information) But my point is that I feel everyone's passion to preserve the goodness of the community which the original Ambassadors have built together with Foot Joy. My intentions are the same as a new comer to your community, whether I stay or disappear, I would like to see this community move on with its original image as you have built it to be. I believe you and this community does good for the game and the "club" sort of speak or the community which radiates to us new and outsiders. But we can't help it. Many of you are friendly and we see many things about you that we like.
In any case, outside looking in is good enough for me as a privilege here in the FJ world. I'm good with that, partner. Although. . . I might post a few stuff and participate in some of the things we could relate to. (and pick up a few points - lol) just kidding. . . can;t help it, it comes with it :-)
Anyway, I'm purposely missing out on the Masters, I want to do that later-- uninterrupted-- I've got a new bottle of San Antonio chards, I think I'll open with it.
