Guys, a question.  It is now June and the end of summer in the northern hemisphere.  I would assume it is nice and warm.  Why are so many pros wearing sweaters.  Has the temperature already dropped so much or is the wind chill factor that high

It's California, and in particular it isn't too far from San Francisco, one of the coldest June regions in the United States.  I'm half kidding.

But that region does get unreasonably cold.  I am less than half a kilomile south of Pebble Beach and it's much warmer here (nearly 70 degrees F), although I will be wearing long pants when I go out today.  The city my parents live in, about equidistant from Pebble Beach as I am, although further inland, is expecting mid-90s temperatures.

In short, wide variations in temperature are why we see them in sweaters.

Deep water off the coast right there cools the air significantly.

Dude, check the weather channel.  It was 50 degrees and rainy the first day and it is 57 right now.  And they're right on the coast haha

Exactly.  And the mid-90s city less than a half a kilomile from Pebble that I referenced is very inland.

You haven't visited the Monterrey Peninsula in the summer, have you?  The place runs chilly, fogbound and cloudy much of the time.

After Thursday, Tiger was still there. A slow first day is pretty common. But after yesterday I thought his chances were gone, or at least very small. Today's start seals the deal. He won't come back from ten shots behind.

Yup Tiger is done. A shame. Truly thought he had a chance this week. Putter saved him Thursday and killed him yesterday. Today he looks resigned to the fact it’s not his week.

Nah the putter didn't kill him yesterday.  He rolled it well and most putts had great chances.  Sometimes things don't drop.  He made some poor swings that kept him from posting under par yesterday.  The putter led to him not winning, but it didn't kill him.  Those poor swings did.

Maybe, but that putt at 6 he should make in his sleep. Disappointing.

Willett alert, -4 so far today, up to T6

Heard Nick Faldo mention him as a sleeper this week. Been playing sneaky good. He’s disappeared since that Masters win.

It's usually cloudy or foggy near Carmel and San Francisco area.  For the majority of the part, it's actually cold during summers in SF bay area.

Tiger just missed a short putt on 7th.  Ugh!  Put a fork in Tiger.

I lived in Monterrey for 18 months. When the marine layer moves in, it can stick around for 2 weeks. It doesn’t go away even though weathermen will say every day there will be “some sunshine.” No there’s not. But it’s always cold there. This is a normal day. But go 5 miles to your east and it’s 90 degrees.

But there are 5 cities in America on my retirement list in a few years. Monterrey is one of the five I’m considering. Love it.

You watch Big Little Lies? It's set there. Hopefully the people aren't really like that.

No never saw it. You get a mix of people there. Lot of rich people who think they're better than everyone else. That's one of the cons I have for that city. But you can't beat the scenery, and I personally like the weather. You never have to use AC in your car or home. If you do want sunshine, just a drive a mile to the east. It's there 300 days a year.

Funny story, I lived right on the water and it would always be overcast and foggy where I live, but I went for a run every day and two blocks away from the ocean it would always be sunny.  Almost every day. Was amazing.

Nothing against Woodland or Rose, but a Koepka or McIlroy win would be big. Especially a Koepka win. However, that story on Woodland with the special ed girl makes me want to pull for him a little. Seems like a good guy. Good player, too.

    • Im quoting myself here (mods be kind) as i really was hoping someone may have thoughts to share. I likely didnt write enough in my last post and didnt think this warranted a new thread. Ive been on a very nice health and fitness routine for almost all of 2019. I lift full body 2x a week (because of work/life sched cant do splits), i stretch almost daily and do kettleball/band/etc golf training routines 2x a week (which i stole from my friend who got it from his TPI trainer). I was "skinny-fat" and in pretty bad shape (relatively) pre 2019. Now, my flexibility has definitely increased (easy to tell from stretches) and ive got big noob gains in lifting for 6 mos now (4 yr break from lifting). Ive lost about 20 lbs of fat and gained a ton of muscle (again noob gains). Note, im a skinny guy in general, always have been, but during my best years I resembled one of those athletic skinny tennis players. Everything about me feels fitter and stronger and more flexible. But my club distances are the same (at best) as pre 2019, and im more inconsistent than before. Without the intimate details of my swing, i dont expect to hear conclusive advice about my predicament, but would love if anyone had any similar stories. I love my swing coach and will continue to take lessons regularly. I find it really peculiar, as i mentioned previously, that my tennis game has completely turned around (ive always played near equal parts golf and tennis). Every part of my tennis game is materially better. Im faster, more consistent, better conditioned, and have a crap ton more power. What the heck is up w my golf swing. Pretty disappointed to be frank.  
    • Thanks guys. I am super curious how new balls compare to these and the relics in my bag. I've gotten to the point where my swing is repeatable again and I'm hitting balls in clusters at the range. I may go to the pro shop at the range and grab a few sleeves and experiment in a few weeks. I'm pushing the ball out past 300 yards again, so I'm assuming the range balls are quite beat down compared to my Maxfli, Top flights and anything else in my bag that's still shiny. If I'm not getting any real appreciable distance gain from a new ball, I won't buy anything. I have almost 10 dozen balls NIB from the late 90s through 2000s and now 22 dozen new balls. I doubt I'll ever need to buy a new ball again. I say that knowing how I spend money like a drunk sailor on leave hahaa
    • I have a few of those in my bags. Balls I was convinced were the ball and I protect them like a mother hen hahaha
    • Hello! Thanks for always answering my beginner queries lol! Yes, green dot was the static fitting done by myself with the chart. I guess in reality this may vary!   EDIT: Plus, a pro I visited the other day to change my grips told me I didn't need to bend the irons because of the lie angle, that the lie angle was ok. He also told me those were sort of crappy, but that's a different story lol
    • Hello there! Was your ‘green dot’ fitting just a static read? If so, it’s really just guesstimate as to what will fit you best. Ping i3-O can be bent to 2 color codes I believe. But for now I would focus more on developing good mechanics and then dive into a fitting. Cheers!
