I would love some rain... any rain.  Nothing but a sprinkle since March.

We had those roll through our corner of MD the last two nights as well.  Tues night we barely finished putting on the last green and could see the lightning & rain coming across the river as we made the quick trip to the parking lot from the far side of the course (scramble start).  Lots of wind in those storms brought down a few dead tree branches.

0.34" of rain last night chased me home just before I got done cutting the grass at the church, the rest wasn't too bad and is in the back so it can wait until next weeks cut.

You guys over there are not used to the heat.  Getting back to 70's is more normal.  These 100-109º days are fairly normal for us this time of year.  It's a desert; we don't get rain in the summer.

No rain in sight, but starting Monday we drop into the 90's all next week.  Might have to put on a sweater!!

In addition to temps in the upper 90's and 100's, we have this going on!

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Steamy hot in New England after an incredibly rain soaked July that would have put

quite a crimp in the golf season if I were still able to play.

Would have enjoyed the present heat, as long as I were riding, though.  Always played my best in it as long as the greens were watered and not like concrete when you hit into them. I played the game in the air and had few run on skills.

It's been a few years now since spinal stenosis took me out of action, but I still think about golf a lot and peek in over here from time to time.

 

Golf was a little easier to give up when I had to do it than it would have been years earlier.

You may remember the contempt that I had for the modern equipment.

I stuck with vintage gear until it was entirely worn out.

I never reconciled with not being able to play with steel spikes anymore.

I really blew a fuse over that development.

Nor was I cool with "ready golf" and the emphasis on faster play.  I had all the time in the world when I was on the golf course.  And I only played weekdays so that the poor bastards who had to still be working could have the course on the weekends.

 

And despite all of that, it was still really hard to give up.

No matter how badly you kids try to screw it up, it's a great game.

 

One thing that I seriously miss and that was still as good as it ever was:   drinking and socializing under the umbrellas on the clubhouse deck on a hot summer day or evening.  I loved that so much that I had hoped to die there some day.  That's something that I could still be doing, but justifying the expense of the dues just for that was too hard to do.

 

When I stopped playing, I stopped watching too.  I have no idea what's going on in pro golf these days.  If I stumble on a women's tournament while I'm flipping, I may watch that for a while.  Tiny skirts on  fit young women are never hard to watch, and some of the little Asian girls give this dirty old man "yellow fever," at least as a spectator.  In actual action, they would kill me in five minutes or less.

Played in the US last month. Can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’d rather play in 104 F in California than 88 F in Washington. Humidity is a bummer.

Have several times.

Loved Bermuda fairways.

Hated Bermuda greens!

The "grain" actually means something on them.

It's a non-factor on bent grass up here. 

 

So it's a bit humid right now, huh?

Well, looks like a hurricane will be making its way through the Gulf early this week, but it looks like it will be East of us. Rain will come no matter what, though.

Summer is definitely winding down in Northern Europe. Temps are falling to the mid-low 60s. Today rain has dashed any hopes to get to the driving range. Though the stalls are covered, the wind blows the rain right into your face. Charming.

We’ve been in rain mode for the last month. We’ve never had as much rain as this during the summer of northern Ohio. When it rains it pours literally. Many courses can’t take much more water, we’re already in cart path only for the last few days and we are looking at probably 3 more days of on and off rain. It may take a solid week of sun and wind to dry out some courses

A very nice 79º today with a 15 mph wind.  First day of our cooling off period.  Next 10 days are forecasted to be in the 80's.  Maybe a small shower, but we need more rain!!
