Well we have a final round of the year thread but it's 2012 now, so what is your first round of the year? Due to some unseasonably warmer weather, I've been seeing some posts of golfers getting to play when there is usually snow on the ground.

I'll be playing my first round on Wednesday at a course I've never played before, San Vincente CC.  It's a practice round for a team play match there next Saturday.

I was hoping it would be yesterday but I couldn't find an open course with available tee times and my wife had honey-do's for me to do.  I'm guessing unless we see another heat wave here on Long Island it won't be until late March.

Hopefully before the end of January, depending on work schedules.  Step son is a caddie at a local high end club, may even get out with him.

Normally, first round here here outside Chicago is around March, but with the warm spell, I played twice last week. The local course had staying open (weather permitting) and a few others sent out emails announcing special openings.

Air temperature in the high 40's, but sunny and no wind. I've been colder in October. The ground is still frozen though, which makes it hard to stick a tee into it. Don't hit fat, as there's no divot and it hurts. Water balls sit out there on the ice laughing at you. On the other hand, there's great bounce and roll.

Yesterday at the Eagles in Tampa.  Worst round in two years, haha.  Nice new carts and a bunch of newly paved cart paths though.  The new owners seem to be doing a good job sprucing things up.

    • If I am understanding this correctly, I've been able to, for over two and a half years now, move stones in bunkers, as long as doing so doesn't move my ball, same as I can do on the fairway or in the rough?   I either missed this entirely or forgot about it.   
    • It was explained to me that they wanted people to remove stones, but not to give them so much freedom that they  could just go messing about willy nilly and moving their ball. So, what they came up with did that.
    • Previously the LR caused a stone to be treated like a MO in all respects. Now the rule doesn't.  Why not?  Why shouldn't the Rule simply deem a stone in a bunker as either a LI or treat it by Rule as one? A safety conscious player could incur a penalty for being safe about a stone but not a walnut. 
    • This argument is like saying that someone who wins the first two games in a best of three competition hasn't won because there were two rounds and not three.
