Christopher Hartley

A Canadian golfer whose passion for the game exceeds his talent.

I play to a 12 (+/-) and I believe that first and foremost golf should be fun. But, I enjoy the challenge of a golf hole that asks me to hit a shot that I am not talented enough to hit on command (a draw). I want to hit every club in my bag - even my 4 iron.

Modern golf courses should be designed with 5 par 3s, 8 par 4s, and 5 par 5s. Give long hitters an extra chance at Eagle. Give every amateur an extra shot at an ace (what else do we have in golf glory?).

These are the thoughts that determine my rankings. And, I like to have something to look at while I am playing.
