2020 Cleveland MGA Inaugural Season Preview

Greetings gentleman and assholes alike! 

I want to first welcome everyone to the INAUGURAL season of the Cleveland Mediocre Golf Association. It’s likely that many of you have already had the pleasure of interacting with me via social media, but I’d like to take a minute to formally introduce myself, your Chapter Leader, and set the tone and expectations for the upcoming season!

First, my name is Jared Youtzy and I’ll be your party captain for the foreseeable future.

Not only is this the first year for the CMGA, but it’s also my first time really running anything like this in my life, so I’m just warning you that there are likely to be some bumps and bruises along the way. A perfect example of this would be the fact I scheduled all of our yearly tournaments without considering a modified shotgun start! Luckily, I’ve been able to contact many of the courses and get this changed, which you can see below.

Next, many people might assume that because I’m the Chapter Leader that I must be pretty decent at golf. The truth is, I’m actually kind of terrible. A recent example of this is coming in last place with a score of 125 at the Toledo MGA’s indoor simulator tournament! 

The reason I tell you all this is because no one should feel intimidated by how much they truly suck at golf. The MGA is for everyone (as long as you aren’t a douche bag), and the reason I decided to start a Cleveland chapter was because I love golf, but had a hard time finding dudes to hit the links with on a regular basis.

My ultimate goal for this upcoming season is to start building up the chapter and creating an atmosphere where everyone can come, play golf and have a good damn time doing so! I’m always open for suggestions as well, so if you’ve got some good ideas, shoot me an email and we can chat!

I’ll try and keep this post short, but I plan on writing up articles on a semi-regular basis and trying to channel my inner Drew Magary and his Dick Joke Jamboroo. Below is our initial schedule. This may change, but I'll let you all know if it does. I really tried to choose some nice courses that are within 45 minutes of downtown Cleveland in every direction. Hopefully if you're driving a bit further for one tournament that there will be another much closer later in the year!
