Adam Beach

Owner
GOLF Handicap
My name is Adam Beach. This place, this site, it’s more than just a business to me, it truly is an expression of who I am and what I believe in, down to my core. I feel the work I do is a reflection of who I am and the idea behind the work I do is more important than the work itself. You see, I don’t actually see myself in the golf business at all, I am in the business of caring. I am a guy who wakes up with one goal: do the right thing.

Tony Covey

Employee #2, Editor, Jack of All Trades
Tony is the Editor of MyGolfSpy where his job is to bring fresh and innovative content to the site. In addition to his editorial responsibilities, he was instrumental in developing MyGolfSpy's data-driven testing methodologies and continues to sift through our data to find the insights that can help improve your game. Tony believes that golfers deserve to know what's real and what's not, and that means MyGolfSpy's equipment coverage must extend beyond the so-called facts as dictated by the same companies that created them. Most of all Tony believes in performance over hype and #PowerToThePlayer.

Chris Nickel Chris Nickel

Chris Nickel

Director of Business Development
0.0 Handicap
Chris is a self-diagnosed equipment and golf junkie with a penchant for top-shelf ice cream. When he's not coaching the local high school team, he's probably on the range or trying to keep up with his wife and seven beautiful daughters. Chris is based out of Fort Collins, CO and his neighbors believe long brown boxes are simply part of his porch decor. "Isn't it funny? The truth just sounds different."

Emanuel Bortz

Emanuel Bortz

Emanuel is an avid golfer, not because he's necessarily good, but because it's the only sport he hasn't gotten injured playing. His philosophy is if you're not getting better it's time to buy new clubs, because it's not your fault you shanked it, it's your one year old irons fault. Golf went from being a weekend activity to a passion of his. Growing up in San Diego, he was fortunate enough to be able to play Torrey Pines on a regular basis, which made it even easier to fall in love with the game.
Parker Phillips Parker Phillips

Parker Phillips

Director Of Video
Hailing from the west coast, Parker somehow ended up in Virginia–where he now spends most of his time outside on the trails, rivers, and mountains. When he's not fantasizing about camper vans, you can find him writing scripts, shooting videos, and creating content that breaks the mold.
Jonathan Howard Jonathan Howard

Jonathan Howard

What's that saying? - Those who can't do, teach. When his time as a 5th-year senior wasn't enough, Jonathan pursued a career in coaching golf at his Alma Mater, CNU. After years as a MyGolfSpy tester, we realized we too couldn't get rid of him and decided to put him to work helping us to facilitate testing and analyze data. When he's not at the testing facility or on the road with the team, Jon remembers he has a wife and pup at home in Williamsburg to pop in on.
