Still bad over there Erik?

Erie even got on the news over here last month and it looked bad.

We've had two melts since then, so it's not too bad right now. Today it was almost 60° (it's still 53° at 10pm right now), so it's been melting pretty well.

I could have golfed today but even a retiree has obligations..    Monday and today we had high temperatures of 52º...Hoping the weather just reverts to spring and continues to warm but...alas...I'm not betting against Winter.

Yep, it's going back in the deep freeze with 2"-3" of snow tonight with temps in the upper teens. Highs in the low 20's tomorrow. La Nina doing her worst. Just have to face facts that this is going to be one of "those" Winters! Our roads are crumbling.

We've had a colder than normal January here in Charlotte, but the real problem is my club has brand new Tif Eagle Bermuda greens. Because they're new our superintendent has been forced to cover them when the temps drop to the low 20s (or the teens). We've been totally or partially closed for twenty of the thirty one days. Our senior group has really struggled to get out on the course. We're all hoping for a warmer February and an early Spring. Also, we hoping that by next Winter our greens will be mature enough to withstand these lower temperatures.

Heard this on the radio this morning:

"OMG, the groundhog predicts another 6 weeks of winter. Another, gasp, 6 weeks of 82 degree weather <here in Southern California>. . . :-P"

Yeah, 82 degree weather is really the pits this time of year. In a couple of weeks we'll be in Monterey. Hopefully it will be cooled off by then, so I can get in some more winter golf.;-)

I predict we're going to get crucified by the Northerners. :-D

 

Have fun in Monterey. Shouldn't be too warm up there, but it might be windy.

This is going to be one of those 6 month off-seasons for us.  Didn't get a huge amount of snow, but what we did get came early and for the most part stuck around.  Unfortunately had some melting and rain in early December, so likely will be dealing with winter-kill once the season does start.

In Finland it's about -10 degrees celsius! Fortunately starting the golf season in Spain in a month, going to play 3 rounds. Then hopefully start playing in Finland late April or beginning of May

Ugh.  It's suppose to snow on Saturday.  Just in time for weekend golf.  I have a tee time on Sunday and hope the forecast is wrong.

We are about the same situation.  No wonder so many people of Finish decent live around here.  I've got 4 March rounds scheduled in Southern Nevada / Western Arizona to get me warmed up for a late April start to the season.

We've had a pretty mild winter in Denver so far, but it's been an annoying one. For the second week in a row, it's going to snow on the weekend. We've also been getting a shot of cold air and some snow pretty much every week, even though it hasn't been much snow. It hasn't been sunny enough for the snow to melt quickly, either. That means that golf courses have been closed because of snow pretty frequently and that a lot of driving ranges aren't open either. So it's been tough to get my golf fix in.

I'm starting to get that itch to get outside and play, or at least hit some balls. It will probably be another week before I can do that, though.

On the other hand, I should start doing some more indoor practice and mirror work at home. I've been really lazy about doing that.

    • This has not happened to me ... yet. I mark my ball with a pink line, and I've never seen anybody else do that. It makes it easy to identify which ball is fine. That said, I think if you play enough golf, it will happen at some point, so I'm betting it will happen to me. Hopefully, it doesn't cost me too much when it does.

    • Just a pack of lazy ex-competitors or non-winners who are taking the easy road of mediocre playing. A player can finish DFL in all 15 tournaments and gross over $1.8 mil. And that’s playing three round tournaments. LIV honestly thinks that’s a model for growing the game? Such a shame that Cam can be on possibly the height of his career and throw away that desire that got him on the PGA TOUR in the first place. It’s sports. Professional sports. We all understand someone’s wanting to make more money and do less. But when it come to professional sports, that’s seldom a winning model or a respected one.  Bottom line is it’s the fans that have made these players wealthy. Sports produce nothing for people but entertainment. If it weren’t for our love of these games, it would be a hobby alone. Essentially these ass clowns are defecting and turning their backs on what/ who  made them able to even pursue this semi-retired, exhibition money grab. I have no respect for them. Not that it matters at all apparently.
    • You could try and mount a thick comforter behind the net as well. It should absorb any ball with little to no bounce back. But yes, slack in the net is preferred to prevent a possible "Testicular Event"....
    • This illustrates the difference between what you MUST do and what you really SHOULD do. One little nit with the underlined bit, as soon as you dropped the ball with the intention to put it into play, it is in play.  It may be in a wrong place, as it was in this case, but its in play.  There's a difference in how you handle playing from a Wrong Place, as compared to playing a ball not in play (Wrong Ball), but its really beyond the focus of this thread.
