Meet our writers!
Welcome to the first post in the newly official Eagle Vision Golf blog. The topics are simple: golf and drones. They are by far the two things that we know best and that’s what we plan on bringing you guys on a weekly basis.
We have a diverse selection of writers contributing to our topics, lets take a look:
Bobby Bishop – Not only is he good at flying drones, he also has the writing skills of a middle-of-the-pack college student. When he’s not filming golf courses, you can find him golfing around Tampa Bay following up every single birdie with a triple bogey. Having reached bogie golfer status a few years ago, he is still on the hunt towards his first score in the 70’s, but we’re not holding our breath. Bobby has his Masters in Digital Journalism and Design from the University of South Florida and will be covering all things drone and a little bit of golf.
JP Skinner – If his passion for writing turns out to be as strong as his insistence on not golfing sober, we’re in for a serious treat this year. JP’s been on the never-ending trek towards scratch golf since childhood but hit a speed bump at age 21. Between his golf rounds he obtained an English Literature degree from Florida State University and will play an integral role in our blog covering all things golf including new equipment, the PGA tour, and of course the 2018 Speith/Fowler spring break.
Sean Byrne – While most golfers who start young tend to retain those fundamentals, Sean is one who proves that stereotype wrong. While he’s probably our writer with the most potential to be a decent golfer, Sean’s your golf buddy who makes the game way more complicated than it has to be. Whether it’s insisting on taking a divot on a 20 yard chip shot or his unnecessary draw to advance the ball straight, there are sure to be many spiked clubs during a round with him. With his recent fondness of fake news, we’re going to do our best to wean him off that but there’s no telling which direction this wild card is headed.
Mike Maganello – Mike is the most experienced writer in the group getting his start at the University of South Florida’s student newspaper, The Oracle, as a sports writer. He currently lives in Tampa Bay where he works for the local soccer team, The Tampa Rowdies, handling public relations and running their social media channels. We look forward to Mike loosening the shackles of AP writing and letting loose for some good ole’ fashion golf and drone talk.
Katie Conner – Katie’s one of the few who mastered the game of golf at a young age. She’s the friend we all have that golfs way less than us but still manages to whoop us. Katie studied Speech and Language Pathology at the University of South Florida and currently works in the field in South Bend, Indiana. When she’s not helping out the kiddos, you can find her at Morris Park Country Club lighting up the fairways. Katie will be writing about a wide array of golf topics including tips and tricks, the PGA Tour, and what it’s like belonging to a country club as a millennial.
Elliot Anderson – If his writing skills are anything close to his driver game, we’re about to get articles making our jaws drop and other articles making us turn our heads and pretending they never happened. But we’re confident we’re going to get much more of the prior. Elliot is from the Portland area and will be instilling a little bit of that weirdness into each and every post. He has graciously volunteered to cover the edgey subjects of golf including “Do Swinger Couples Have More Fun?” (Coming next week! Also, not what it sounds like.) and when is it okay to throw your club.
Olivia Yodice – While Olivia may be the least experienced golfer of the writers, she will be shining light on a vital perspective: what it’s like to date a bad golfer. Yes, she is in fact the lucky lady who gets to call Bobby Bishop her own. She has picked up the game in recent months but still has the task of consoling Bobby on his double and triple bogeys. She studied Studio Art at the University of South Florida and currently has her own company where she up-cycles and reimagines vintage furniture. We look forward to her perspective on the game!
Brian Nemes – I saved Brian for last because he is our first Intern at Eagle Vision Golf. He studied Marketing at the University of Central Florida and has been golfing for a couple years now. He is a multi-threat marketing beast and has played a pivotal role in taking EVG to the next level. One day his golf skills will catch up to his marketing skills, but for now he’s writing about the new era of golf and the struggles of being a new drone owner.
There you have it, those are our eight writers that will bring you the latest and greatest in everything golf and drone related. We plan to publish one or two times a week and encourage social media interaction and engagement.
We are always looking for new writers so if you or someone you know might be interested in contributing, please shoot us an email.
Thanks for reading and we hope you enjoy our new tradition!
