It's the winter weekend over again.  Just in time for my weekend tee time, it snows/sleets today. 

There goes my 10 AM tee time tomorrow.  Ugh!

We just got back to Montana after a 4 month stint in Yuma and having played 3x/week.  Had to switch from shorts and T-shirts to jeans and coats when we got to SLC. While we missed the brunt of it, we still have a solid month+ of cold weather ahead.  On my list this season is The Old Works course in Anaconda.

Its projected to be reaching plus double digits Celc by Friday finally. This means mat driving ranges might open for next week.  There isnt too much snow to melt so hopefully that helps. Its basically just been too cold.

For the courses though that want to do proper maintenance, I think late April is still the start most expect.

Brutal winter.  We've had snow on the ground since October 20.  Probably still close to a foot of snow on the ground on average.  Things are looking up though.  Predicted highs above freezing every day in the forecast.  Just need to get those lows above freezing now and we can start thinking about golf.

MAnaged to get out for 9 holes Sunday. It was cold at the start and colder at the end but not too bad. Wind was killer and distance was horrible. Not really ideal golf weather but it was something...

First tournament this weekend, and the forecast is for about 50 degrees and 20 mph winds. That could be really brutal. I'm hoping the winds end up calming down, because 50 degrees is perfectly fine for golf. Of course, we've had this tournament snowed out a couple of times recently, so just being able to play will be an improvement over that.

As I type this, it's been snowing steadily, though not heavily through the afternoon. Enough so that the ground is now covered, again! But there's some good news in the forecast, like 60's and 70's by the weekend. Of course, in this area of the country, warm Spring temps usually means rain! So, we're no closer to playing than we were before!

We have flurries coming overnight.  It's funny, beginning of March ibwas looking forward to courses opening early.  Now...I couldn't care less when I start playing.

    • I got lost while reading about shaft droop from this 2009 abstract: (PDF) Understanding the mechanisms of shaft deflection in the golf swing PDF | An understanding of shaft dynamics during the golf swing was gained through a series of theoretical simulations, using a 3D forward dynamics... | Find, read and cite all the research you need on ResearchGate Maybe I'll take up ping pong...
    • No worries.  Thanks.
    • The putters are my seventy-eight-year-old Dad, who doesn’t play much golf anymore. And, like a little kid, once I brought them out, he’s now having fun putting around the house. When I told him about the situation, he didn’t seem thrilled to be selling them. Honestly, he’s having a good time; I’d really can’t sell it now I apologize; I got ahead of myself. I’ll keep you in mind if we go to sell them. Again, sorry for any inconvenience.
    • Wanted to break 90 for 2 or 3 years even, got close a few times but couldn’t. Over the winter I worked a lot with a coach, on putting and then in the spring I got my wedges dialed in for distance. I am now regularly breaking 90, usually only a hole or two will stop me from breaking 80. So my best 9 hole result is +1 for example.    I will be working on my game a lot over the winter and I expect to break 80 next year. 
    • I was between Phil and Nelly, and went with Nelly.   18 with Phil would make it a lot closer.  The season that Korda had was amazing.
