On the golf DL

DougE's current situation got me thinking about my times on the golf Disabled List. My last time on the DL was August, 2016. A back issue put me on the sidelines for 20 days. I was worried about missing the balance of the season but solid rest saved the year. I have actually been a bit lucky in that...

I have had similar feelings when I look out over the entire course and there is not a single person out there except me. I will admit to talking to myself just to have a bit of human sound. It is a great way to play golf, having your own course.

In Hellabama, had a 45* morning with a 15mph wind and a heavy drizzle. Played in shorts.
Ha ha ha, you are one of "those guys". We have the "must wear shorts" golfers up here in the frigid mitten, too. None were out there today.

Re: December Golf!!!

It is hopeless to urge you to completely rest your body from any golf activity so I sort of hope you get a major snow storm and power outage for the next week.

*note on temp reference, the balls are room temp and the ball temperature has more affect on distances than ambient temp. Ambient temperature has damn near 0 noticeable affect on shot characteristics (it's less than 1% difference in 20 degrees of temp). I've tested this when bored before, stat nerd...

Re: Bawlz

I played a "Pinnacle Soft" (not sure of the exact appellation) for my two December rounds. I got them 9 months ago as part of the company's annual meeting golf activity. They seemed to "feel" okay and performed decently in the cold temperatures. I was bummed when I drowned the only one I had in bag....

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Congratulations to all who persevered and played December golf. I too teed it up yesterday. No heroics but like the beef, the swing seemed to find a groove on the second nine. I was booming them almost 200 yards :facepalm

Re: 2018 Fall Support Group

I played an early season round a couple years ago and my cart mate brought a cover. It was very windy and quite cold. It would have been miserable in a cart without the cover. If one is not walking, a cover is mandatory when the temperatures and wind drop the "real feel" under 35 degrees. If the rou...

On really sunny days, my wife and I will sit on the front porch in our Adirondack chairs. We have a southern exposure and the sun reflects off the house. The chair's flat arm rests are great for setting a beverage. Some days in January we are out there in parkas and hats but the ambient temperature ...

Re: ... Just put "Game Night" in the video player

I had very low expectations of this comedy and was surprised ... I liked it. Not a classic but really a pretty decent movie. The "other" couples and their dialogue while participating in the game night were particularly humorous.

A snow event is on the horizon for the frigid mitten. Optimists think we will get rain and further north, snow and wind. I have been hustling to get all the leaves picked up.

There are two days left for the current leaders to gag and drop down the leader board. Still, it is interesting how the top 10 is filled with ladies from the USA. Maybe home cooking and McDonalds is the answer. The ladies from the USA were largely absent from the top during the Asian swing. I am beg...
