Y'all know I'm not one to complain. I mean, my hair's falling out, my hands are arthritic. I've got a pacemaker. I've got arteries built by Crisco and lungs by Phillip Morris. I've got a bad knee, and my waist size is working on passing my IQ, but do I complain? Noooo! But I am so sick and tired of slogging through wet, swampy fairways only to putt on wet, sloppy greens. I had to give up on my favorite local goat track because you'd need snorkeling gear to play it. It's so bad even the ducks are wearing flotation gear. There's a nice course just north of me that enjoys claiming that they have water on almost every hole. Well, I got news for them - they got water between every hole as well! The sand in the bunkers is so wet you can't get it out with an excavator. Even my golf balls have wrinkles from the wet!

But, by gawd, I can't wait to golf tomorrow! 😁

At least your playing. In northern minnesota we still have a shit ton of snow on the ground.

Courses are already drying out nicely in the South Sound; although aerification season is upon us too. Gives us a chance to test the bumpy green putting question from another thread....and 1/2 price greens fees at most courses.

Here in Colorado, our greens are brown and I can’t remember it raining for over 8 weeks. Just snow. In the dessert or in the swamp, golf is always enjoyable

Three of my friends played that course yesterday.  I texted one guy about an hour ago for a report.  It was not good.  H2O, not in ponds, is anti-golfical.  I have two other friends about to try out the scene of your slipping and sliding down #1 incident, next week.  Expect that to be swampy, too.

As you know, it’s been raining most of the day again. I’m taking my chest waders tomorrow. My wife is encouraging me to go. I’m thinking it’s because my life insurance pays off for drowning…

I think your wife is onto something.  Any sand trap will do, since they're all filled with water.  I'll read about you in tomorrow's news....

Played nine holes the other day and my course in Philly is firming up nicely. First time this year with no mud on the ball.

Playing golf on a swimming pool is better that staying inside 4 walls. I couldn't play yesterday because of weather, today is rainning so is probable that the course will remain closed over the weekend. I have a Mid-Am next week, I neeeed to practice!

We are starting to break dormancy here in the south, so the course is getting better every day. Still have a few wet fairways, but even the bad days are getting better.

The courses here are dryer than a popcorn fart. Divots, if you can take one, disintegrate into a cloud of dust. I actually love it, hard and fast. Nothing worse than a soggy golf course, no roll, mud on the ball every time you hit it, brutal.

We arrived near Jekyll Island and since we've been here they have had a top 10 wettest March ever.   I blame my wife..(don't tell her)

That is unfortunate.  Hopefully it doesn't affect the golf too much.  There's always the inside fireplace, a soft couch and a cocktail for when the hurricane blows through...

We've had a tornado warning and yesterday's round was cart path only.   Beats Michigan weather!

    • Day 115.  I only had time today for 20 balls in the same drill as yesterday, but I did find the time.
    • Day 163: Worked mostly on driver today with almost golf balls. Did some work on static change, then a bunch of rehearsals, and then some full swings. Made some improvement on the push start line, and ever so slight drop kick (graze the ground), at least for today. 
    • Maybe I've interpreted this incorrectly, but it just strikes me that the underlying reason is not really about fewer events.  And while the amount of money is obviously so enticing, but even that may not be the main reason for some. Patrick Reed, among others, are talking about how the PGA Tour is not listening to the players and making necessary changes.  I never quite understood exactly what type of major change could be made, other than increased prize money and a different distribution. But with the revelation that LIV golfers are paid a negotiated amount to just show up and play, it seems, at least to me, that the real reason could be wanting a negotiated contract that pays a certain amount regardless of tournament outcomes. It may be that desire to be paid like a baseball player, just as an example, who shows up each game, goes about his business, maybe batting .300, hitting 30 HRs while his team wallows outside of the playoffs and he collects millions.  Regardless of the stark differences in available money between the PGA and MLB, it sure seems like that is really the life these golfers want.  And it seems that is what LIV is offering, or maybe I should say over offering. While I may not agree with what LIV is doing, I do understand the appeal of a contract over time; especially as one is getting past their prime.  It can't be lost on these golfers what some professional athletes are getting paid, with a portion being guaranteed.  A PGA Tour pro who has career earnings of over $25M is probably doing pretty good; especially while maintaining a top 125 in the sport.  But in other sports...

    • Lol. Something to the effect of 'you miss 100% of shots you don't take'.   
    • Ugh, I wish we had better ways to deal with these sorts of idiotic law suits. Such of waste of time and money.
