That picture defines why we moved to FL 6.5 years ago.

War Dept had a thought about going to CT for a week this Christmas......NO, God created FaceTime just for this reason!!!

Actually, it was an Apple software engineer, Roberto Garcia.  But maybe God told him how to do it... like "Right!... What's a cubit?"  Or I suppose it could have come from ancient aliens.

The scores were inconsequential, both rounds were played on the Saddlebrook Resort Palmer course (Wesley Chapel, FL) with most of the morning round played in a light rain. What was important was that we had fun. We enjoyed the battle in the elements. We were the only golfers on the course for about 3 hours.

Golfspy Barbajo you make golf fun even when it’s horribly played.

Fun playing with you again Foz! The weekend was a double-bogey fest for me, but on the fun scale it was a tap-in Eagle.

Good luck this week

Not to get too far afield but.. way waaay back in the early 90s smart people at Cornell developed "CU-SeeMe" which was web-based video chat.

Beautiful sunny 55º day to play golf with the guys at the club today.  Nothing special; just one birdie on the 550y par 5 #5 hole (15 foot putt) and shot 39/38 = 77.  Just a fun day to be out walking in the green grass (and goose poop) in December!!

For those of you who play in colder climates this will be redundant but the wet chilly conditions have been a game changer for me. I played today at Myrtle Beach National and although we’ve had two days of no rain the previous five days of down pour have left the courses drenched. When you couple low temperatures with soaked turf what you get is shots whose distance includes carry only and limited flight. I have never hit so many three woods into greens in my life. My scorecard at the end of the round was not indicative of the extreme struggles to get there. The good news is forced to sweep rather than hit down on the ball I hit some pretty amazing iron shots. The bad news is the sad reality to come where distance, or lack there of, off the tee will definitely change my ability to stack together a bunch of pars. In my world a bogey may quickly become the new par as total distance with the driver diminishes. Really makes me wonder how the hell Benard Langer continues to compete at the majors.

I feel ya!

In summer it can be 4 wood and wedge on some holes here. In our wet Autumn and winter a full blooded drive actually spins back 3 feet on landing, combine that with cold air and it becomes Driver 4 iron (or lower) to short par 4's. The par 5's are completely out of reach and a third shot can be 7 iron!

Going to play one last time on Saturday before Christmas, forecast is 38* and windy but I need a golf fix lol

Welcome to my world of "old guy golf"... all year long!!  

I rely heavily on hybrids on long holes, which is why I work on my short game around the green so much.

Shot good, -1 today. Real crisp ball striking day, putters rolling well. Just missed a few putts that would have made the day a fantastic day, but still quite pleased with the day.

That sucks, Rick! I was going to suggest you get it done quickly during the off season, then remembered there is no off season for you.
