This is just a joke right?

Not a joke, just curious because I had a discussion on whether or not to do a trip to Northern MI in October where you can get cold & snow easily.  So @Vinsk, which would you Rather?

You know, immediately after I posted my previous post I started thinking I may have gotten it wrong, primarily because of the O-Value. I'll revisit that in a bit, though… Not that much lower.

I’ve done both in a day....but they sold nachos at the Putt-Putt so that helped.

Definitely hole out from the fairway twice a year for the rest of my life. An eagle on a par four is -2. A hole in one is -2. Two awesome shots/year would be something to look forward to forever.😃

Yeah ....As others know I’m an extreme anti-winter person. I’ve lived in both extremes and hot weather wins by far. Cold absolutely sucks.

Golf on a day over 100 degrees (38c) with no breeze and you sweat profusely just sitting still let alone being active.

OR

Golf on a blustery 40 degree (4c) day with wind whipping around giving you wind chill around 35 degrees (2c)

No Fence sitting, which would you RATHER do?

Heat. Golf isn’t fun in the wind and cold. I can deal with being hot.

Play in the cold and wind, 100%.

I'd rather play in the heat.

Hands down golf in the heat.  With the exception of one year in my life when I lived in the Netherlands, I have always lived in hot climates. I spent many years living in beach towns and heat and humidity I am perfectly fine with. I can't really deal with the cold, and I would probably struggle with wind affecting my golf game.  Never grew up playing courses like that.  I can't hit low wind cheating shots

I have golfed in a competition when it was 37*, overcast, and breezy. Talk about terrible conditions, miserable, and being bundled with too many layers of clothes, it was terrible, and my score reflected that. Now 100+* you have to be careful because that could be deadly if you aren't prepared. With that in mind, I would take the hot weather over the cold, and prepare myself as best I could.

Considering my first round of golf this year in January had an ambient temperature of only 18 degrees before any windchill, I'll take the cold every time. Plus 40 degree day down to a 35 degree windchill is only 7 mph of wind, so that's average or better out here in Colorado. 

Warmer and less windy than I've been playing golf in, what's not to like? 😁

But on a serious note, I much prefer being cold to being too hot. Cold is easy to fix, just add layers, but when you're hot there's only so many layers you can legally get rid of while out in public. 35 degrees for me is still warm enough that I just wear my usual jeans and t-shirt with a light sweatshirt on top, so not enough layers required to really restrict or cause problems with my swing.

Once it drops down below 20 degrees is when things start to get more debatable for me unless I'm just desperate to play golf, because I need at least one of my insulated long sleeve shirts plus a sweatshirt, if not long sleeve + light jacket or sweatshirt + light jacket. I'll golf in a sweatshirt no problem, but I'm not a fan of playing while wearing a light jacket.

I have played both and absolutely prefer the 100deg days.  I don’t mind sweating profusely....

As I get older the hotter the better for me. My cutoff for playing is about 50 deg. If its windy even higher.

My wife has a 50-50 rule.  She wants at least 50% of the round to be played at 50 degrees or higher.

Not even close for me. My personal threshold is a real feel of around 45 or higher to play. Using that I usually play 8-12 times during January and February combined. Around here, the real feel is 100+ from late May through early September. I average about 15 rounds a month and usually walk up unless the real feel is close to 110.

I'd much rather play in the heat than in the cold.

Only problem in the heat is sunburn. Sweating is not an issue, I fight against it with cold beer 🔥🍻 

Very hot days tend to have harder greens which do not recieve your longer shots that land directly on them. The way around this problem for me is to use the fairway, having the long shot landing on thr fairway and rolling naturally into the green. IMG_20210330_092702.thumb.jpg.bd8ad88ca7dae07805c51d116a4ec729.jpg

When the weather is really cold you can also have good fun if you have the adequate layers clothing, neck warmer, gloves etc. The way around the discomfort is also to keep drinking some strong coffee/black tea along the round. Gotta confess that frost fairways are quite a beautiful sight. IMG_20210330_092412.thumb.jpg.d1b9ff486446b12356edc96676348761.jpg

Would you rather #38

Lose all of the memories you have of playing golf

OR

Keep all the memories of golf you have right now, but never be able to create any new golf memories?

#1 if it means Ron will stop sharing his memory on hole 17 with every Tom, Dick and Harry we play with that he's parred the hole from each of three different fairways, I'm all over that choice.

    • Day 506 - May 17, 2021 Hit balls (including one ball into the parking lot) from the back of the range at Whispering Woods today. Didn't quite have the same feel as the other day, but… it's close.
    • So I was helping my daughter out at the back of the range today. I had chipped literally two 8-irons, then wanted her to take a break, so I said “watch this in case I duck hook it onto the practice green” (short game). I’m on the back of the range, hitting toward the mats that are 300 yards away. I hit it, a high seed, and… it hits by the mats (between two people, about six mats apart) and bounces into the parking lot. It’s a gravel parking lot, the ball didn’t go very far. But, ooooookay. So, that’s enough of that. My daughter was both in awe and frightened that I may have dented someone’s Honda. A student takes his Mevo out on the course to measure shots hit out there, and he said he measured my first tee shot a few days ago at 175 ball speed and 117.x (don’t remember the decimal value) clubhead speed. He bought a set of SuperSpeed sticks off eBay later that day. Wheeeeee.
    • I played as a 2 man in a pretty big local tournament that gets top flight guys. The course was set up long and tough, but weather was good. 1st day =X 2nd day =79 I hit the ball really well both days and would’ve shot in the 70s both days if I didn’t take an X on a hole. I didn’t know where to hit the tee shot, so my captain gave me a starting line hit the ball 15 yards right of the start line- quality drive, captain says that’s not bad, you can get home from there ball was lost on an overgrown hillside and the team was in good shape, so I sat in the cart instead of holding up play i had 50 yards of open fairway to the left thanks captain  Putting was bad but, even with a 5 putt (4 of them were within 3.5 feet and I tried on them all) - I scored pretty well and made a handful of birdies on a tough setup.
    • My biggest drop in handicap over two years was going from a 9.9 to a 3.9. How? I stayed out of the shit.... I called the zoo... I finally cured my hook (It came back again, then I was able to cure it again like literally today.)    @iacas will be the first one to tell you or you can tell for yourself, in My Swing Thread... my swing looks like an unfolding lawn chair. (I’ve taken literally four lessons in my 24 years playing golf). I can understand complex, like the number A# that Erik has on this site. I’m trying to learn to play golf with mostly a three-quarter swing. It is however a process. In the meantime, I aim away from the shit (darker zones), try to get on or around the green, and don’t do anything stupid when I do get out of position... basically “miss” straight... 
    • Yep. Jack was never so lucky to be gifted a major. Those club pros gave him their best every tournament in the early years!
