From the Editor: We’re way overdue for this one, but it’s time to introduce (post facto) Patrick Tuttle, our resident golf guru whose obsession with golf remains somewhere in between manic and outrageous. Almost as outrageous as his 3-wood tee shots. Tuttle, a recent NYU MBA grad, is also based here in New York which might be the toughest place on earth for the casual golfer. Of course that doesn’t matter because he forces his editors to drive out to all the courses.

Patrick’s intro after the jump.

I joined the gang at Gear Patrol because I believe that as men we often settle for less than the very best lifestyle we can attain. It’s been ingrained into our psyches to forgo certain products, services or lifestyles because they don’t fall within some antiquated male paradigm. Bunk.

It’s time as men to stand up and redefine what’s rightfully ours. Much of what I have learned to this end has come through advice from guys who had the experiences and knowledge I was seeking. My only regret was not learning it sooner. Now I feel it’s my obligation to pass along what I know. I’m not saying I have all the answers but I’m happy to share what I’ve learned so far.

On a more personal level, I live an active lifestyle and focus on my health and wellness as a means to sustain the frenetic pace. I also suffer from a case of golf-itis (Ed: to say the least) and spend a lot of my free time perusing that passion… ok, obsession. I aim to incorporate relevant fitness and golf content into Gear Patrol’s expanding coverage of all things male. Like the rest of the crew I can’t stand over-hyped, under-performing products. None of that crap will be perpetuated here.

I consider myself a work-in-progress so if anyone has any insights they would like to share, I welcome them.
