Whispering Woods had to turn more than 200 people away today. They didn't have tee times. People were taking tee times up to 5:30 even though they knew they'd only get 4-5 holes in. Crazy!

Oh, then I guess I owe you an apology. 
I thought you were experiencing such weather right now. 

Okay, you don't suck. Anyone else who gets to play golf all year round and never has to deal with shoveling loads of white death off their driveways sucks.

chet, I've got clay on my shovels.

Tuesday was perfect, today is looking better!  Course is still coming around from an especially wet winter but greens are like counter top and receptive.  I don't have to search ballmarks, it is right there with the ball.  (although fixing others' is pretty constant).  My little course is almost crowded during the week - very unusual.

It will be a while before I can get back on the course again.

In parts of the High Plains, this could be an historic snowstorm. Here's our latest forecast. - Articles from The Weather Channel | weather.com

It is beautiful out this week, but I have a big audit going on at work and have to work late, so I won't be able to get out and play.

At least I got to play 9 on Sunday when it wasn't quite so nice out.

After a long week of work, I snuck out early and beat the crowd and was able to walk 9 in an hour and twenty minutes, which isn't too bad for an old, fat, bad golfer.

I live in a place where I never have to worry about it being too cold to play.  It is only ever too wet to play, thanks to the solid monsoon from June to October/November. I really struggle during that time period thanks to no golf and other outdoor activities being reduced. Any tips on how to practice/swing in an apartment.  When I am based at my home in Coorg, on a coffee estate, I have the space and ability to hit balls and swing without issue

Maybe something like this if you have limited space:

And I thought 29F with 30 mph winds here was bad. 

It was so windy, I was almost blown off my bike. Kind of hoping to play yesterday and this week, but too cold and rain is coming.

Eh, it's the Reds... they're going to finish last anyway.  Now they have the "snow excuse".

    • C’mon man! You were the President of the Taylor Gooch fan club! You got that tatoo!😜 Agree, 54 hole snooze fest.
    • True, but even when they decide to focus on a shot, it can still take 20-30 seconds for the player to execute. The broadcast likes to include the player picking a club and setting up. If they take too long, sometimes they cut away, sometimes they don’t. I’m not saying I prefer it.  Personally, I would love to see more shots, less putting. 
    • Apart from what  OP has just repeated, the clue is in the term temporary water,  the revised name for what used to be called casual water.   As it is  a temporary condition, you could not designate an area as temporary water all the time. And to push that thought further, if it were water all the time it wouldn't be temporary but by definition a penalty area. It wouldn't be surprising if on occasion parts of this mushy area do meet the criteria to be temporary water (I get the notion that you get occasional showers in Seattle) but it could be very difficult to know or have virtual certainty that a lost ball was in such a patch. 
    • Your only hope is to react quickly enough and  stop your downswing or deliberately miss the ball.
    • Interesting. Out of curiosity, I googled the past 20 winner of the PGA's Match Play tournament. My assumption was that most of the winners were mid-range to lower level guys. But it appears that most of the winners were "top 10" types. Perhaps match play does favor higher level players.  With that said, the assertion that match player is easier as a blanket statement is pretty absurd on it's face. In any 128 player field, the odds of a given player winning are 1 - X. X being the likelihood that any of the other 127 players will win. The fact that match-play is easier for certain types of golfer makes it mathematically necessary that it is harder for other types of golfers.
