Dr, I am glad you aren't coming to Orlando this week, we're covering the strawberries with ice to keep them warm down here.

-15 degrees here. I would die for 40 degrees right now.

yeah... I still think it's funny when I see people with winter coats and parkas when it's 40*... I will wear short at about 60* and short sleeves is anything above 50-55*. I still have Michigan blood, but I am starting to get used to the heat a little. The high-tech shirts help.

No kidding, this is getting out of hand... my heat pump doesn't even keep my house at 68* through the night... I get up and it's like 63-5*... even the 10 day forecast looks pretty bad. Where are the 50's we should be hitting. Guess I'll just have to play more hockey for now.

I'm wishing it were 40* now... we have been low 30's most of the day if we're lucky and teens at night.

Re: To Golf or NOT to Golf?

I played last Wednesday with temps at ~34* at the course, with wind chill indicated 26*. I wore as much clothing as I could without feeling restricted and I can definitely say it was rough when facing into the wind, so I'd say 35* with any wind is about my cutoff. It's the first time I've played in the cold, definitely a new experience seeing the ball bounce on the green like I'd hit a cart path (not quite that bad).

Does anyone have a rule of thumb or calculation to show what a change in temp does to distance the ball flies? I was generally down one club with my irons. I never really hit my driver this summer and tried it during this round, the thought was that we were losing ~20yds on drives. Don't know if that's wishful thinking or if that's a solid number. The ball seemed to come off the face well enough, but they'd just hang up and die.

Wish we had the option here! We have a foot of snow onthe ground and it's 10°. More snow Wednesday.

When it is not snowing here its 25 with 30+ mph winds. Mother nature hasn't been kind yet this winter.

Of course Wed will be the warmest day this week... I will be watching my daughter and working from home. SOB! Tomorrow when I CAN play it will be cold as hell, and cold again for the weekend... total BS.

LMAO!!
BM, I would invite you down for a round, but the weather just doesn't seem permissible. This cold recently has been quite rediculous. I am used to 50* here, with a chilly day occasionally. Maybe its the beginning of the new iCE aGE? I guess we can get some black balls to play with if that happens.
Maybe, I will get with you again when the weather breaks 40*. BTW, I think I'm going to get me the 9032 driver we had talked about before, I tried one out and really liked it.

yeah... I'd be happy to meet you someplace for a round if the weather breaks... or whenever. I am always looking for people to play with. You should click on that link in my sig for pickup18, they have some cool events and are starting a tour next year.

As for that driver... you liked it eh'... I definately have to go try one soon. The newest speedline (the FAST10) was in GD on the Hot List, not that I put too much stock in that. Anyway... hope the driver works out, and just give me a heads up if you want to play. I play sporadically on one of the 3 days my wife gets off work which are different each week, but she usually has her schdule about a month in advance, so I can plan around it pretty easy.
