You’re not welcome in this thread. 

We had a couple of inches of snow on Sunday. It’s already melted, but annoying that we’re at this time of year already. Could have another decent month, could have less. 

Yeah, I had a tee time for Monday and the course was closed due to snow.  The very next day the course opened as all the snow melted on Monday.

Ugh!

Beauty of a day yesterday. it was mid 50s, but the sun was out and no wind. I played 27.

It really sucked waking this morning to a windshield full of frost. Now that I'm parking on the street, it has become one element of winter I really despise.

I always get a bit melancholy this time of year because it gets dark early and the outdoor non-winter sport activity is coming to an end. I'll keep playing as long as I can, but then it's indoor practice after that.

Yeah, the seasons make me try and milk the summer as much as I can but sometimes you burn out, and wind up indoors when it's sunny outside. Hopefully the NOAA is wrong about El Niño.

Doesn't El Niño mean it will be warmer than usual?

Ha ha. Don't kid yourselves. It's only a matter of time for those of you downstate.

I'm still heading out tomorrow if they let me on the course. Might have to wait until noon when it's supposed to "warm up" to a toasty 40°.

    • If the flag had been improperly replaced by the group in front of him, or perhaps even left out and the flag actually assisted in the ball going in would you have NOT counted it? "Assholes in front of me left the flag out... I'm not counting it... bah humbug."  If a putt is rolling toward the edge of the hole and the hole is slightly damaged on that end and the damage helps the ball fall in, do you not count that? If you clearly miss a putt and it hits a spike mark and goes in anyway, do you not count that?  We've all had bad luck when playing golf; a ball that looks destined for the green hits a sprinkler head and bounces over the green into the trap, a putt heading for the heart of the hole hits somebody's sunflower seed husk and is diverted and misses, a beautifully struck tee shot that just catches that one twig and all of a sudden turns into a disaster. It happens. The OP can relish in the fact that he hit a great shot. But he asked the question (I think very wisely) and it looks like its not a hole in one. If you are going to CHANGE OR IGNORE the rules for this instance, are you also going to CHANGE OR IGNORE the rules when the outcome favors you as well?  I recently (while playing for an amount of money that mattered) skulled my gap wedge and it flew over the green heading for out of bounds, but it hit one of the white OB stakes and ricocheted back toward me and on to the edge of the green. I was happy to take that bit of luck. It would be wrong of me then to only accept the good luck and not deal with the bad luck. Should we change or ignore the rules and put my ball out of bounds, after all it was a terrible shot? Hitting a terrible shot and getting lucky is no different then hitting a great shot and getting unlucky. We should not change or ignore the rules in either case.   … I mean, really when it all comes down to it, isn't that kind of the point of golf? 
    • Understanding you have a problem is the first step in recovery. Have you contacted GA? Golfaholics Annonymus?
    • It can feel normal because we are used to it, but it never feels natural to me either.
    • Well it is not that easy. She has a legit gripe. I have seven full sets off Hogans and may be 26 loose Hogan irons. However the real problem is that I have an additional six hundred golf clubs and 30 old golf bags that also live in the basement. My addiction to collecting clubs over the years has caught up to me and is affecting her laundry process. And I don't want to be assigned those duties. Cutting down the herd is the way to go
    • 5am wake-up, shower, get ready for hour-long drive to the season's first 7am tee time with buddies I haven't seen in months...walk outside to 15 degree windchill and half an inch of snow.
