45* with no wind is my limit. Played one time when I couldn't get the tee in the ground so we used irons. But we were playing golf and that was all that counted.

40's and 50's next week in NYC.

I'm bringing my clubs home!

This weekend 50s and 60s, next week, not so much, 30s and 40s. Some courses won't open until all the snow is gone. Driving by a couple of courses, I saw lots of snow (and geese?), but if the forecast is accurate, the weekend should melt it away.

I think Clearview is open all the time.  Haha.

My sources tell me that there isn't much snow on the ground in NYC right now so I figure by Monday or Tuesday it should be good to go!

Snow?  What's that?   We are experiencing rain and sleet.   Our white Christmas is all but gone.   Time to head to the indoor simulator.

68 degrees in Ohio yesterday.  I was great but it was weird.  I grew up in Wisconsin and lived there until I was 32.  I honestly couldnt remember very many years where we did have snow for Christmas, so to have it be almost 70 degrees a few days before Christmas is very strange to me.

It's weird here too. Not the not having snow bit, but anything in even the 50s is rare, let alone the 60s.

My son just got back from a week in St. Augustine and the first thing he said was "If you ever want to play your best golf, play for a few months on dormant Bermuda and then go to Florida where the grass is green. Every chip you hit will be like the easiest thing you've ever done."

Talk about depression, I have new Cobra AMP Cell irons sitting in the garage, but I can't touch them because I just had back surgery! We have a heated range here where I could be swinging away but no.... I'm stuck on the couch for the next few weeks and can't swing a club for the next few months, this sucks big time!

On the bright side, winter solstice was yesterday so now the gradual change from nighttime to daytime is starting! As in we will start getting more daytime. This only points to spring and brighter days is the way I look at it. Rather than the beginning of winter. Yuck. 4 more months til the Masters guys, hang on

So things are looking up! I like the optimism.

Use urethane covered balls instead of surlyn and you'll be fine in sub 32...we got snow that's not going away so I decided to practice my bunker swing by using the 'line drill' in the snow, felt good to make a few swings

Anyone make a black golf ball? Guess one could dip it in ink or something.
