Wow Doug 27 rounds, I am proud of you. You represent us well. I needed a break too by the way. I declined to play this week on account of the wetness, which got a lot worse this week. I haven't enjoyed firm and fast conditions this whole season. Even the rough is still thick in spots. The times are definitely changing.

It's freakin' cold and windy today. A reminder that it IS actually mid-winter, despite how much golf I have been able to play. But, thankfully, back to the high 40s and 50s in a couple days, expected. I read today last month/January (when I got in 18 rounds of golf) was the warmest on record, globally speaking, according to NOAA....and that the six warmest years on record since they've been tracked officially, have been over the last 8-10 years. Antarctica experienced it warmest temperature of all time a week or so ago. 65* What is happening? Global warming? According to some (I won't name names), that's a hoax. Fake news.

Today and tomorrow is the anomaly though. After that it's back to "normal". Doug this will be your golfiest February ever right? Get your rest while you can, not going to be many more bad weather days this season I predict.

...I need a break...FWIW, today was my 27th round of 2020.
:fu

I haven't swung a club in 30 days. Still at 3 rounds for 2020. But at the end of the month I travel to Orlando (Reunion Golf Club) for 12 rounds of golf in 6 days. I may need to be medivac'd back to the Frozen Mitten. Or buy three plane seats so they can lay me down.
Let's Play 36
GHIN Handicap: 7.8 … 9.2 … Let’s just say I am around a 14!

I'm not sure my body would hold up for 36 holes, 6 days in a row anymore. My mind could, but my shoulders and back? NOT!
More power to you, BK!

Are you playing only Reunion for all rounds or some of the other many great tracks in the area too? Falcon's Fire, Celebration, Champion's Gate, Shingle Creek or any of the Disney courses?

I hope you will give us a full accounting when you get back, both of the golf and the golf injuries ;) .

I love golf, but that's a pretty intense amount right there.

You left out the sleeper a little bit out of Orlando, in Haines City, Southern Dunes.
I will stand in the fairway, I want to be out of your range.

I am #8 of the group so I do what they tell me to do. I think it is just Reunion but I could be wrong. At least we are riding (I think). Could be the first time I pray for a rainy Thursday. ;)

Southern Dunes is a great one. Played it once about 9 or 10 years ago. Other than the cart paths running through the condos and town homes, it was a great track. To this day I still remember one terrible drive I made there and another wedge chunk. Probably made some real good shots that round too, but of course, it's the bad ones that still stick in my mind.

All rounds will be with carts, Orlando courses greatly discourage walking with all the tourists.

Wow! Better make sure that you've got a full bottle of Advil! And you might need some massages after golf... :thrust

That's a lot of play for our advanced ages! :fk :yess
I'm gonna go low this time...

It feels like late April out there. I don't like it obviously. My season is shrinking. Now I know how the polar bears feel.
