Favorite Thing about This Time of Year

What's your favorite thing about this time of year?

Even though I'm starting this thread during the holidays, it can apply to whatever time of year in which someone posts to it. In early April, I might post "The Masters!"

But for now…

Peppermint ice cream.

I will name two favorite things about this time of year. 

1) The weather has cooled off down here, and that means I can play more golf. 

2) The Jaguars' season is coming to an end, so my annual suffering is almost over.

My two brothers that live away usually come back to town for Christmas. One is in Massachusetts and the other is in Chicago, so we don't seem much of them through the year.

Yup! The cool movies come out.  Can't wait to see Rogue One 

For me around the late year holiday season it is that we are finished at work with budget season. Lots of execs take time off so office is not as hectic. I always take the week between Christmas and New Years off and spend it with my kids, so good bonding time.

The food: I love to cook for Christmas and of course make my favorite soup in the world (Posole/Pozole) and all the fun stuff like carne adovada and cheese enchiladas with a pot of slow cooked pinto beans around New Years.

People in general are nicer  

Golf wise here in Florida the fairways dry out so that when I duff it my ball usually still goes forward a bit.

My company normally closes the last week of the year. So I'm looking forward to a few days off from the grind.

Around this time in NY....  It has a certain "je ne sais quoi" that makes the city more electric and alive than any other time of the year.

I love visiting NY anywhere from late November to New Year's day.  Something in the air around this time of the year makes the city more alive than usual.

    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.   
    • Okay, sure, but it almost all cases on the PGA Tour (and competitive golf generally), it's a fellow competitor for those reasons.
