Yep... definitely August.

Looking forward to getting out the sweater for the cool down next Monday.

Have a GREAT day everyone!!

When are you getting out of the heat and coming up to PNW where it's only 97-102º??

Top of the pot spies ☕.  Morning's the past few weeks have been a bit different for us.  Because its been near 90F lows, and we have a 5 year old yellow lab (River), who's human mother is crazy caring about him, we've been platooning 0500 giddie-up's to take him out for walks before the sun rises 🤪.  It's not really that bad since our tee times are (except my Monday group) between 0630-0730... but I'm already looking forward to cooler morning's.

@Kenny B, take a break and don't make things worse for your wrist.  I'm still thinking our core group can pull off the 5th Annual PNW Spy Meetup so as not to break the run.  Heck, I'll drive or fly somewhere if that's what it takes.

Can't seem to get any traction with the PDX guys.  We are passing through on Sunday Aug 20 after attending a wedding and said we would stop and play. but so far no takers.  

Maybe when @GolfSpy TCB gets here, we can arrange an outing with @Thin2win

I am hopefully planning a fall trip to visit family... It wouldn't take much to convince me to carve out an extra day or 3 for some Spy Golf 😉 .  Rest up that wrist Kenny, I want you to be 100% when I come!

Morn all!

Well, not morning here, but you know. Off and on rain. Mostly on. Trying to dry some things before folding them up and storing them away, but alas the rain keeps coming. 😅

GM all!

Serious debate in my head if I could possibly play leagues tonight. Hurting somewhat less than a couple days ago, knowing I'm going to swing for the fences (beer influenced!) What to do???

Anyways, I hope everyone has a great day!

Good Late Morning Spies! 

Walked 18 holes this morning at 7am. Nice WARM Central Florida morning too! I've never had to play with two gloves in the summer. But this year, I'm finding having to wear gloves on both hands because of sweating so much.  Interesting.  Played well today, really liking the Titleist T200 Irons.  Now it's back to work, having a cup of Espresso (maybe two). 

Have a Great Day Everyone! Hit'em Straight! ⛳

You need to add some humidity to that temp and make the heat index 110* like in Fl.

Well, we did.  How's 43% this morning and 15% at 6pm tonight?  Is that good enough for you? 😂
