OFFICIAL: why did you choose that username?

just a general thread asking why you picked your username/ the story behind it.

ill begin.

driving up north ive been driving alongside a e9x bmw with a U of I plate "wingman". him and i would be on the road at the same time very often, usually following one another moving through the slower traffic, so i decided to get my new firefighter plates as wngman(because i couldnt get 7 letters)(see sig). hence the username.

This isn't my original name on here, however it's an old one I brought back from the dead.

Surrey is the town in England where the McLaren F1 was made, hence the F1 at the end

JJR4884 was my initials and DOB

I took my username from my golfing days (I used to golf four days a week). At the Men's Club I belonged to, we would have weekly matches. One weekend we had a team match; teams of two competing against each other. Everything was well except my putting. For some reason, I couldn't sink a three foot putt to save my life. Finally, on the 17th hole, after missing another short putt, my partner yells "why don't you just take a hacksaw to that putter!" By the time I got to the clubhouse, everyone was calling me "Hacksaw" and the name stuck.
