3rd Annual Frozen Balls Challenge - 2018-2019

Post by bkuehn1952 » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:10 am

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. We are not even going to consider the left coasters and our southern brethren, who think 50 degrees is hardship golf because they have to wear long pants.
Let's Play 36
GHIN Handicap: 7.8 … 9.2 … Let’s just say I am around a 14!

My bathroom is nearly done, so my focus is turning back to golf. I might get 2-3 rounds in before the end of the challenge haha
Keep it short stupid.

I have two 78s and a 77 under my belt so far for 2019 winter golf. But temps were in the 40s and I've been playing from the whites in the cold because the blue tees have been moved to the black teeing ground to allow for healing of the over-used blue teeing grounds. That's too far for this old man. Especially with the limited flight of frozen balls hit by frozen bodies. And I am using my new cart cover/enclosure on colder days. Does that factor in? I'm hoping to go much lower in the days ahead, so I don't have to package up the "Cup" and send it to anyone. I'm lazy. Besides, as long as you don't look closely and read what it says, it looks good alongside my other trophies. And it's plastic, so no polishing necessary!

This southern brethren does not own a pair of long pants for the golf course, and will golf as cold as they let us out. Our problem is our grass does not react kindly to below freezing temps.
I will stand in the fairway, I want to be out of your range.

I'm not sure where I fit these days. I'm sort of southern brethren - I live in what they call the Mid-South - I do play in 40's whereas most people here won't play below 55. I like playing in pants. In fact I prefer weather where pants are comfortable over shorts weather. But as I knew when I lived in NJ I would never win I really don't know the rules. I did shoot a 77 last week in sub 50's weather (barely, 48 or 49). And I have lots of mud on play in.

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. Shot nice 75 (course is par 70/68.8/114) and given the conditions probably one of my best ever. Only 3 other guys on the course.
