Re: January Golf!

I just did not feel as free with my swing after I put on my rain gear. I was playing so good, I did not consider a beer until the twelfth hole. The guy I was playing with (a regular partner) was about to quit after 13, but I gave him my second pair of rain gloves, and he loved them. The Foot Joy Ra...

Re: January Golf!

Maybe a week from now, the mere fact that you could put a peg in the ground today will be comforting. We shoveled late this afternoon. 8 to 10 inches of, thankfully, light snow. Temps are going negative tomorrow. Going out and making bogies sounds okay. Hey, srogers, nice first nine. You have scored...

Re: January Golf!

I am jealous. First storm of the winter today. We might get around 4-5 inches. Then some really cold weather. I spent yesterday gathering more firewood. :fkno

Re: What is a good score for a 2 man scrable?

A properly run event would limit the handicap difference to at most 10. The best teams will have a difference in handicaps close to 10, so your team is perfect. Another factor is the type of handicap one has. By that I mean, is one's 18 a result of hitting 300 yard drives but losing 6 or 7 drives. O...

Re: The New 2019 Rules

Well, we are 2 weeks into the "New Rules." Who is making a conscious effort to play by the new rules? What new rules have impacted your play? The obvious one is leaving the flag stick in the hole. In my three 2019 rounds I have left the flag in virtually 100% of the time. A few times I have reflexiv...

This afternoon we are predicted to reach the highest temperature for the next 10 days ... 34 degrees (f). Despite the cool temperatures, we do not have a single bit of snow on the ground. If one can get a tee into the grass, a 350 yard drive should be fairly routine. Just make sure it is going in th...

Still don't know the rules and not wanting to win and have to deal with the trophy, but went out today at 42 degrees - colder than my norm but yesterday was washed out and next weekend doesn't look good so I thought I'd give it a try. Really wasn't too bad until last 4 holes when the wind kicked up...

Yes. We are in the deep freeze for a couple days. If this trend continues, the Mitten becomes a rock hard ice ball and any snow stays around until April. While I remain hopeful, things do not look good.

Looks to be a two way race between LB and DougE. Both are golf maniacs when it comes to marginal weather. Gbogey has been kind of quiet as have several other potential contenders.

Re: 2018-2019 Winter Support Group

What a nice winter so far. I have played more golf since the solstice than any recent year. I have not even had to consider the course of last resort, Huron Hills, and their infamous "flat seven." We have had a total snowfall since 11/1 of about an inch and a half. Yes, right now it is 20 (f) with f...

I played Tuesday. It was "winter perfect": 50 degrees, calm, and partly sunny. Yes, the fairways were a swamp and the greens fuzzy. Who cares, I was walking the golf course and swinging a club.

Re: Anyone seen this in NYC or other large cities?

The annoying thing I’m seeing around places, Austin and Atlanta in particular, are the little electric “Bird” scooters that you rent by the hour. There are piles of them on street corners. Ann Arbor, too. Apparently, one can make a career (short term, likely) of picking up the scooters at night, re...

The ages ran from 64 (me at the time) to 20. Everyone except one other guy was 50 or so and younger.

I could have handled that except I was in a "slump" or down period so not only was I the worst, I ...

Assuming the Sand Trap once again puts on a "Newport Cup" event, both of you should consider "applying." "Iacas" will announce the application process soon, if he decides to do this again. It is a cool golf experience as long as you are okay with playing a competitive event with a bunch of nice guys...

Re: 2019 PGA Tour thread

I have left the flag in for the past several rounds. When I start to get close to the hole (say 20 feet and in) the presence of the flag stick is a bit of a distraction. I believe the flag stick helps as "sjd" outlined and assume having a flag stick in the hole will no longer be a distraction once I...
