Re: December Golf!!!

Weather forecast for 20-30 mph winds today and high temps in the low 40s this afternoon. Tonight, wind chills in the single-digits. Frigid tomorrow. Low 30s Thursday and Friday. Damn! The clock is ticking and I am itching to get back out there.

Re: December Golf!!!

I don't think December will be friendly enough to get in enough rounds to reach 200 rounds (of which most were 18 hole rounds, but there are at least 20 9-hole rounds included in there too). I started the month with 182 rounds in 2017. I reached 190 today with a nine hole round after playing a round...

Light snow here in MD this morning. Not happy. :fk

Have tee times scheduled for Monday and Tuesday. That may not happen, but still hopeful.

Re: December Golf!!!

What is the rule on putting "hand warmers" in your underwear? As long as you don't put any golf balls down "there" to warm them up against the handwarmers, you're safe. Or you can put all the golfballs you want down there if there are no handwarmers there too. Either way, sounds...

Re: How far do you have to travel to your home course?

1 minute. Max.

I can hit a driver from my front yard to the 12th fairway.
(However, the guy who lives in the house between my front yard and the 12th fairway might not like me to try it.)

Re: December Golf!!!

Just played my 6th round in December today, and it's only December 6th! And, most of those rounds included some of the best ballstriking I've had all year. Looks like a December to remember.

BTW, only 15 days until the days start getting longer.

BK, I hope you have reason to pull them out of the basement long before March! C'mon el Nino/Nina (whichever the good one is)!

Maybe now that your clubs are hibernating, you'll have more free time to be here on LG. I will be looking forward to your posts, as always.

Re: Winter Golf: tips and tricks

Rarely wear my FJ rainpants unless it's raining (or was raining and I just hadn't gotten around to taking them off). My legs never seem to get cold like my core does in cold weather, as long as I have my compression tights on. However, I do wear my FJ rain jackets and/or rainshirts as everyday golf ...

Hitting warm balls off the first few tees can help get you off to a good start. (Don't...

Re: The Tiger Thread

I know it's too early to get too excited, but nothing would make me happier than to see Tiger shut down all those who said he was washed up and wanted him to just go away. Those with no appreciation for what he did for golf, or how he dominated the game. I want to see some crow eaten. Are a few more...

Okay, today was a special day out there for me. I had a first. Have never seen anyone do what I accomplished today which I'll get to in a sec. I have been playing well of late and it continued today, for the 4th day in a row. Played the front nine (the tougher of the two nines) twice 'cause it was t...

Sounds like, in the end, you still have 9.99 fingers intact. (That's assuming all others are still connected and complete.) Coulda been a lot worse. Glad you are back to working on your game.

Doug if you ever want to start a Titleist, or a FJ, or an "Ask an FJ Rep Anything" type of thread, feel free. You have cart blanch. Could prove interesting and informative. For instance, I was curious: do you use an FJ or a Titleist glove? :gay I use both FJ and Titleist gloves when I wea...

Forgot to mention, when I was in Florida last week, I picked up a dozen of the brand new, Titleist AVX tour balls, which are only being released initially in limited locations around the country. Florida, California and Arizona are the first test markets. I had heard and read so much about them on t...

Re: Autumn Support Group Thread

I just sliced the top of my left thumb off, chopping salad. I have a flat spot now and it did hurt like hell: it's a bit better now, a day later, but I don't think I can hold a club. Bummer! So it's been a few weeks. As I mentioned, mine grew back after I did the same thing many years ago. How is y...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Everything is browning up here, but the conditions are excellent. Greens are stimping about 11. Fairways are nearly perfect, and the rough is thick, but in most areas, only about 2-3 inches, so very playable. Still a very tough course, but not quite as difficult as mid-summer.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Friday, 79 from blue tees in 50 degree temps. Today, Saturday, 79 from blue tees in 45 degree temps. Playing some pretty good golf and making some pretty good swings. Of course, none of these scores count. Out of season. But still satisfying just the same.

Re: The Grumble Thread

This time of year, my course lets out Asian fivesomes. When they are out ahead of you, you just have to plan to skip the hole they are playing and come back and play it later (which, because the course is so empty, is not typically a problem). They will not speed up or let you play through, even tho...

Re: The Tiger Thread

Respectable showing by the big cat. If he can get his chipping a little tighter, and continue to swing pain-free, this may actually be something of which to pay attention. I am hopeful. Though I certainly don't expect the Tiger of the late 90s-2008 to ever be back, a realistically competitive Tiger,...

Yes, but have to earn them with points, based on job performance. Actually, I can get free FJ clothing and accessories as well. Don't have all the details yet. I have to go through the orientation and training next week.
