The lack of light after work is certainly making it a problem. If it's cloudy it's getting tough to see the ball after 6:30 PM. After we set the clocks back I'll switch to mornings as weather permits. Fortunately with 300 days a year of sunshine in CO most courses operate year round and I'll be out there.when the opportunity presents. I'm ready to go, got the cold weather gear in my bag.

Yep, I'm still down to play here in CO. Once the snow comes, it will get harder to play though. I'm trying to get in as much as possible. Good thing I have trips to FL & TX in the winter to keep the game solid for next season.

Course here on Long Island usually stay open until November weather permitting.  Right now most courses and ranges are on summer hours but once the weather changes, they'll make the switch to their fall schedule.

Sun-wise.. I am still able to get a round in before 7:10ish pm, which it then gets too dark.

Weather-wise.. the Chicago winds have just been unbearable lately.. and really killing my ability to play effectively and enjoy my rounds. The weather has been up and down.. but I'm really hoping I can play at least til mid-November.

Global Warming.. do your worst.

So. Cal, FTW!

Quite honestly, I think it's just getting cool enough to start golfing now here in So. Cal. On one summer day (in the midst of a great heat wave), my kids' coach asked me "What, cancel the class? We've had class all week. Of course we are playing." it was 105 degrees and unseasonably humid for here. You folks up in the east coast and mid west have great spring and summer golf with lots of trees (most of whom of my golf balls would become intimately involved with) and beautiful scenery. Feel good you had a great season, ours is just really beginning.

Im living in London, UK, and it has just gotten to the point that I cannot play a whole 18 after work (tee off at 5ish) as its getting dark around 19:15 and the day is shorter by 4 minutes every day...  So my after work 18 is done, I have to revert to 9... then over winter I will probably stop mostly as its cold and dark and there is only light from 8 - 4pm.

    • Hands aren't tiny, but with wrist line to middle finger tip being just under 7.5 inches and my middle finger coming in at 3 inches long, my hand is mostly palm. I've tried to replicate things like this but I just can't keep my fingers consistently wrapped around the grip, especially the pinky and especially when trying to have the fingers perpendicular to the grip along the 'palmar digital crease' as written in that thread. That's with a standard grip with no extra wraps. I feel like the grip moves in my hand and I tend to get weird skinny callouses on the blue lines here. This may be more that my hand doesn't like cord, but still. If you numbered the segments 1 to 3 with 1 being by the finger tip, I feel like my hand is more comfortable when the grip is aligned diagonally in lead hand, resting on the pinky on segment 3 (slash the crease below) and resting on the index on segment 2 (slash the crease below). I also know that just because it's comfortable doesn't mean it's functionally right. When I do manage to execute a full swing without feeling the club moving in my hand it obviously feels insanely crisp and solid in comparison to other swings when it moves. I just bought a full set of Undersize Tour Wrap Microsuede to test out a handful on clubs, before I regrip all 13, but I figured I'd run these thoughts past TST. I'm going to try to share a video taking my grip later today or tomorrow morning.
    • I think it was one part particular camera or shot. It was some vista canyon-y view. 
    • Up to you. I’m charge less but they might give you a small credit.
    • I need to go for a fitting. We have a Club Champion that just opened locally. I can get fit for the wedges there, get my specs, and then order from you. Club Champion's fittings are separate from their club purchases. They're the only Edel dealer in the area.
    • Huh? I’m not seeing that.
