    I cheated today.

    Winter storm (aka heavy rain) outside.

    Four Seasons Aviara was a tricky course.

    It didn't rain (other than a few short squalls) but 40mph + winds and 6c is unpleasant when you're on the highest ground for miles around. The wind roaring through the trees was distracting and neither of us was playing well. It took me five holes before I realised I wasn't turning my hips on the back swing. On the plus side it finally explains why sometimes I stop when my club is vertical and feel like I should swing down - it's because the upper body part of my swing is complete.



    Anyway neither of us bothered to score so we called it quits at the turn around. Only the second time we've ever not completed a round (and the other time was at the same course) but sometimes you have to run away to fight another day image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Up and down round down in Pinehurst last weekend...not bad given the weather and dormant greens. Stuck a dagger in a money match on #17 with friends after hitting it to 6 inches on a par 3 which was nice.

    No golf this weekend image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />



    We had some snow Thursday night and although it was only a covering the low temps means it's hung around on open land. Given today's sun it's possible some golf courses will be open tomorrow but not the one we had booked. Plus my mate has a sore throat so we're missing our first weekend image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

    What a great looking track.
  • elwhippyelwhippy Members Posts: 3,156 ✭✭
    It was minus 5 when I got in the car. Fortunately there was no wind so it did get up to a balmy -1 when we finished at 1225pm. On temporary greens which had the consistency of Granite. Somehow managed four birdies. Tomorrow's exercise will be indoors.

    Played last Sunday morning in NJ after a very cold prior day and night. Could not get tees in the ground and apparently the two gentlemen I was paired with were familiar with this sort of thing and had screwdrivers with them to make holes for the tees!
  • elwhippyelwhippy Members Posts: 3,156 ✭✭
    Same as us yesterday. A small screwdriver is now in my bag.

    No more for me.

    Started playing 18 holes last year so this was my first winter season.



    47F and everybody was out.

    Took 2.5 hours to finish 9 hole.

    Gave up on 18 and went home for Super Bowl.

    It's going to be 60 here in South Jersey tomorrow, back to 35 by Saturday & Sunday. Today it's 54, courses will be packed both days.

    Snuck in 18 today with a buddy.



    Started out pretty poorly but had two birdies and shot an 80.



    After super sub zero temperatures last week, and not playing in almost s month, that itch needed scratched!

    played par 65 on Super Bowl Sunday. 50˚ F with 15-20mph winds, super soft conditions with rain the night before. Tee balls falling off on tee boxes. 3iron got a lot of attention that day. Surprisingly came home at +8 with the previous 2 rounds at +6 on spring/summer weather. I would definitely like to play in those types of conditions more. Makes club selection more important than pulling stock club for stock yardages. Ive never experience having to pull 9 iron at 120 yards to the green, when on a normal day it would be a full 50˚ wedge or easy PW. Probably only caught 6 people on 27 hole course that day. Fun times!!

    Rye Hill again today. Slightly warmer at 9c but very windy - must've gusted over 40mph at times. The course was also quite damp as it had rained a lot overnight. Unfortunately whilst I can't claim that the wind pushed my balls off target (hard to tell at my handicap :-/ ) the roaring in my ears was distracting. Half way round my mate got called back to work (he's an anaesthetist) so I stopped scoring and did some work on my swing for the rest of my round.



    It produced some good results but nothing I could really take to the bank. Still, at least I got some fresh air. Rather more than I was expecting at times image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    all of my buddies backed out today..



    29 degrees 5mph wind.. Sunny... Cinci, Ohio



    Took my son as a caddie (He didn't want to play).. Had the best time.. I played and we talked the whole time and enjoyed the weather..

    Had a good round.. great time bonding ..
  • andrueandrue Members Posts: 1,211 ✭✭
    Yesterday (Sat) was overcast and 11c and I shot a 92 at my club. Today started sunny but clouded over and reached 13c. I scored a 94 but that included an 8 on one par four and an unfortunate recovery from woods on a par 5 that cost me two shots.



    So I'm continuing my run of playing to my handicap which considering the conditions bodes very well for the coming season.

    No frost delay for our Men's Club event (Oregon), but we did have a bit of snow, freezing rain, and hail during the round. Less uncomfortable than it sounds. Precip was usually without wind and vice versa.



    Fun format for a soggy cool day... one man scramble, use 9 of your first drives, no mulligans, string, etc. Just one do-over on approaches and putts and half your tee shots. Quicker than you might think, too.

    Got in two rounds week before last. Thursday was nice, up to nearly 50F. Friday morning it was 47F at 5am. By 10:30am it had dropped to 33 and was blowing like ****. Looking at the forecast I knew it was my last chance for a while, so I went out. Walked 18 in a bit over two and a half hours, was 29 when I finished and mud was freezing to my clubs. Hardly needs to be said I was the only one out there.



    Managed another round this past Friday, not all that cold by comparison. I’d happily play a frozen course but the superintendent closes it.

    Played yesterday, high got to about 38, felt like 28. Was sunny for the first hole, starting dripping ice cold rain the the 18th green, so the timing was perfect



    Wore everything in my closet and had a cart heater.



    Played a sixsome, skins only, didn't keep score.



    Loads of fun, won $40.



    Took a 2 hour, 185 degree shower when I got home.



    Great weekend.

    Started at 35 deg, but hit a high of 41 yesterday. Breezy and recovering from a soaking the day before. Shot an 86. Thought I played well, but did not putt well. Not blaming the punched and top dressed greens. It was all on me..
  • jah7838jah7838 Members Posts: 1,041 ✭✭
    I shot an 89 on Sunday. It was high 40s and low 50s for most of the round and very windy. I hit the ball pretty well most of the round, but I had way too many doubles and triples...which is what it's been like most of this winter. I'll have a good round going with a string of pars, and then I'll have 3-4 double bogeys in a 6-8 hole stretch.
