Last and Predictions for First

Where and when was your last Michigan round?  And when do you predict you will tee it up (outside!!) for the first time in 2018?

I played 18 at Fox Hills ("Classic - Lakes & Woodlands") on December 1.  Saturday & Sunday of that week were very nice but I did yard work.

As to 2018, I think it will be March 15, probably at Fox Hills because they are open year round, weather permitting.  In 2017 it was January 1 (at Fox Hills).  I am just an old pessimist and can't imagine we will have another mild winter in 2018.

I played November 29 at Copper Ridge and then again December 2nd.     My first round this year was February 18th at Tyrone Hills in Fenton but I don't think in 2018 I'll play that early.   I'm going to take a guess and say April 17th..   

March 15th is very optimistic....

Eagle Crest Resort and Golf Course, sometime after Dec.4th. A friend who's as crazy as I am joined me in finding new (to us) courses near Lansing.  We also found Whispering Pines and Pierce Lake in November.  Will not be starting early this year.  When my wife and I get back from Jamaica in March I have to get my left shoulder repaired, again.  Then I'll see about getting my left hip joint replaced.  Both are making golf difficult*.  Hopefully the knees can wait a couple more years.

 

*That being said, still managed a 76 at Eagle Eye on Dec.4.

I'm looking forward to having them done.  Glad I live at a time when I have a very good chance for good results.

Really!   If weather permits before we go to Jamaica I'm going to check this out.

I played 27 holes at Fox Hills on 2/27/2018.  Still, I do not consider the season started until one is able to play whenever one wants without lengthy periods of time where snow cover prevents golf.  Right now March 15 does look optimistic.

Did you not get the 5" of snow we received today?   It may melt by the 15th but I'm more of the pessimistic person when it comes to weather.     Accuweather is stating the the 15th, the high is 41º.   April 14th is the first day predicted in the 60s.

My first round this year was April 12th.   I am playing this weekend, Sunday, and Monday the 23rd.   It seems like winter didn't want to die...

For 2018, my last round appears to have been 12/2/2018.  The weather could take a drastic change but there is little hope in the extended forecast right now.

For 2019 I will go with March 14. Statistically mid-March has been the kick off for me.

The earliest "all time" was 1/1/2017.  Played on 12/31/2016 and 1/1/2017.

Barring a change in the weather picture, I plan to start the "real season" on March 21, 2019.  I played a few times in January and once in February but I self-define the golf season as the time I begin playing and don't have to put the clubs away for a month because of snow.

My first round was March 28th.   I've played twice and i believe we are have unofficially opened the 2019 golf season in SE Michigan.

My last round of 2019 was October 29th at Fieldstone in Auburn Hills.   I've fired up the snowblower so golf season is officially over...well....maybe not if we get some sunshine and no wind.

I'm pretty sure my last round was October 14, played with my son a week before he shipped out
I'd guess my next round will be mid-March, I've played earlier but the weather already seems to be unfavorable

Last round for 2019 was 12/28/2019 at Fox Hills.  First round of 2020 was 01/03/2020 at Washtenaw Golf Club.  My guess is the "real" season will once again start in mid-March.  We have not had a lot of snow but things are wet and courses tend to wait until things dry out.

    • 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.
