I live in Oklahoma. Wind is the only option.   ...seriously though, I love days with no wind.  I probably don't score any better though -- and it bugs me because I figure I don't have the built in excuse: "Well, it was kinda windy today, so I guess my score isn't bad at all."
Yes, I've put myself under the same orders.  (The compressed disk in my neck helps keep me from overswinging sometimes too.) I studied linguistics at UCSD.  ...but mostly I went surfing (I didn't quite manage to surf everyday) or on study abroad (three times - Mexico, Spain, and, ummm, New Hampshire).
!!I hope your ear heals up soon.  I'm 5% & 10% away from having my ear canals close up completely (surfer's ear ), so I get an infection any time I surf two days in a row (most vacations out to CA).  Ear infections suck - hope it's not too painful. Also, went to school at UCSD -- loved surfing down there (though I mostly surfed at Blacks Beach or north of there...)
Ear = surfer's ear?  That sucks.Then again, try being someone who likes surfing but lives in Oklahoma...  At least the golf is cheap!Oh.. where are these amazing monstrous waves?  Bates beach - just north of Rincon Point (I grew up about an hour north of there). This was summer and the point wasn't breaking so I paddled out on my buddy's 11-footer! Not great surf, but it turned into a really fun day anyway.
    From back when I lived in California.   :(  I miss those days living as a hobo surfer...
Tilden Steam Train - NICE!  I go there about twice a year with the kids when visiting family in Oakland. You play Tilden too?
I'll add a third voice to the Lake Chabot par-6.  It's a fun hole - looks more like a ski-slope in summer to me.  It's slightly downhill for about 250 yards, and then it takes a steep dive straight downhill for the next 250-300 yards.  The last 80-90 yards are straight uphill again.  If you can hit it further than 250 on the drive, you've got a chance to get a good bounce and roll down the hill.  If you can hit driver over 260, chances are you could hit 3-wood far enough...
...got me a fitting this Saturday.  Really curious to see how it goes.
89. ...And I sucked - hardly hit a shot the way I planned it. On the other hand, I was the first guy on the course, and I got around in 2:10 without rushing. (Just: hit the ball, walk to the ball, hit the ball.)
87. Could easily have been an 81. ...or a 91.   One triple.  Otherwise, just a bunch of bogeys - very few pars.
