Not really a problem but total let down. I am traveling for work this week and I actually had my afternoon appointment cancel on Tuesday. I had some morning meetings and took some clients out for lunch. So it was all coming together. The afternoon all to myself to go to a golf specialty store to try out different drivers. Ahhh the stars are in alignment. 

Well the place they chose for lunch and what I ordered gave me food poisoning. Barely made it back to my hotel room with seconds to spare. I think I wore a path in the carpet from the bed to the bathroom. Luckily by 11:00 that night I was fine. But of course I don't have any breaks in my schedule to be able to test anything before I fly home. Of course there is no place close to home to test clubs either.

So my testing plan was a bust! 

Sounds like you might have had the fish taco’s

But I switched to a Yellow Ball when I returned to the cold PNW from Palm Springs, and I shot two of my worse rounds in the past 5 years!!  Leaving yellow balls home this coming weekend!!

Problem I have is Yellow or Green are the only 2 color balls I can see.  Yellow is #1.  Getting old sucks.

Congrats On the Eagle. I’ve been around but waiting to see some people out on the course before I get in full YB mode. Been practicing at the YMCA in the pool with my new scuba mask during my break. 
 

But have you noticed more ball manufacturers are now offering yellow balls. I’m just a trend setter!

Yep!  I switch to Yellow when it's cold and cloudy; much easier to see.  On a sunny day white and yellow are about the same.  I can't see Red at all and Green is only good in sunlight.  The balls I really can't see are the Truvis and that stoopid TP5 ball.

Two Taylormade fitting events were scheduled near me. Signed up for the one on Saturday, only to have it canceled. Then signed up for the second one, to be told I need to fly out to Florida that same day for work, so had to cancel that one too. Now to decide if I should take my clubs to Florida or not.

No, this is normal... every time I've been to FL in Jan-Feb timeframe it's been this cold.

80s next week. I'll be fine as long as it doesn't drop 50 degrees by the following week.

December/January so far has been cooler where we are than last 10 years.  Cold is not FL golfers friend.  The only folks happy are Restaurant/Bar owners.

... I am not gonna say you chose the wrong place to retire  🤪  but the next 5 days in Phoenix with blue skies and sunshine are 81-83-81-81-79. It stays about 80-85 until the heat starts to build in mid/late April. It did get down in the upper 50's several times in Dec/Jan with clouds and wind but never below 55*.

I'll send you a club to test out since your plan A was a bust.... It even has a classy headcover!

That’s OK, I’m still liking FL.  I like ocean within 1.5 hours.

... Yup, I love the ocean and wish I were closer. Phoenix has become the 5th largest city in the US and still growing. Problems ahead I think ...

Probably should expand on this.  All 4 of the groups I play in are early morning guys.  That way we still have remainder of the day on our other activities indoors and outdoors.  
By 11:00am it’s warm and by 3:00 beautiful.  For example, 7:00am it was 40*, by 11:00 62* and this afternoon 70* and sunny since daybreak.  
My neighborhood afternoon group had a gorgeous day but that’s all they were able to do, just golf.  
It’s a choice  and I’m staying with mornings, at least until I get old😜
