Hi there! My name is Ryan, and I am privileged to join the other fantastic contributors that make up the Breakfast Ball. I am an executive in the cybersecurity field and have the privilege to play unique and beautiful courses while on the road. More importantly, though, I am a complete golf nerd for technology and am passionate about how the products in the golf market can improve our game. Before we go too far though, it’s essential that I share with you my golf mantra (yes I said mantra, and yes I believe in Santa as well).

Golf always wins, until you beat it.

(Me…after a birdie)

My golf journey has been a little different. I took up golf as an afterthought my first years of college. It was an easy way to hang out with friends, throw a few back, and smoke some cigars. However, I have this ridiculous internal nature that refuses to lose. So as I continued to play, I became fanatical about my game and trying to shoot under par.
This irrational pursuit of golfs defeat led me to work with a tour shop in Las Vegas for two years. It was there I became Mitchell Golf certified and dove headfirst into the technology in golf. Little did I know that this sport would not only become a great hobby but at times, a great friend. From late night club building, or worse, late night eBay shopping (don’t tell my wife). I developed a unique network in the industry and with its vendors. Perhaps even more important, a passion for the technology that was always in development. As I share my thoughts on clubs and technology, I hope to help other golfers with their pursuit of victory as well.
From shaft comparisons to custom putter experiences, I hope to educate and introduce, the fantastic technology and innovation this game inspires. With that said, remember an important truth, it’s ALWAYS the club!
