Hmm.  VG, I think they are giving us this.

Well in June when it is in the pleasant 70s here in New England and the Southern US is 95F with 95% RH with torrential rain and tornado warnings, the SW is 115F in the shade, and So Cal is on fire, I expect they will feel differently.

Agreed. It is quite balmy and nice in the summer here. We will have to start a "Pleasant Summer golf in the NE" thread then.

Flag on the play - Flagrant taunting against the South Jerseyan and Floridian.

Yeah, July and Aug can be pretty brutal here, but when it gets bad I say screw golf and head to the beach..

Uh-oh, this is not good. I just got a mint W/S 1813 blade putter and high temps are supposed to be around 30 for a long while and putting on the living room carpet just isn't cutting it. I guess my taunting is coming back at me...

I played yesterday. it was right around 30. the bigger problem was that the greens were frozen. I could hit a ball well with a wedge to the center of the green and it would bounce high and fly off the back of the green.

Sunny and 60 all week here next week. I'm going to try to get out and play twice. Best time of year here to play (when the temps reach 60+.) The courses are empty and the rates are as low as they get.

I live in NJ and playing in the fall was a nightmare. I put a tee shot in the fairway (which isn't often enough), and boom, ball lost. I even stopped looking for balls that went into the trees. Dropped shots added about 7 shot to my scores. Nowadays, the cold is messing with my head. I golfed in about 35 degree weather, but I can't do that anymore, I'm not built for that stuff. I'm gonna be in the DC area for a bit so hopefully the weather is better for golfing

Anyone use the Oakley golf specific lenses? They were probably one of the best purchases I've made. Makes it so much easier to spot balls and read green contours on your approach.
