I know a lot of you will give me an eye roll for posting this, but I actually got a little envious reading the last page or so where a bunch of you are talking frost delays and playing autumn golf.

Back on Long Island my favorite weather for golf was the shorts and a pullover kind, and squeezing those rare winter rounds in during a not too freezing January or February day felt like playing with house money.

Don't get me wrong, playing all year down here is great. I don't miss the winters, but the heat just hasn't let up since March this year, and the summer was brutally hot. It's still getting up to 80 every day, and some cooler weather would be really nice. We had one weekend in the low 60's a few weeks ago and it felt great.

I know, I know, this is the last thing you guys up North want to hear someone complaining about though...  😉

Today was a good day.  First hole in one ever.  50° Cobra King wedge from 120 yards.  Hit just past the hole and spun back in. Shot 73 to tie my lowest round ever. Won my match 8 and 6

Un-bloody-conscious! I still can't believe it but I shot a 79! 57% FIR 33% GIR 30 putts.

Its been a rough few weeks playing golf after a month of playing well and heading in the right direction, lost the feel for my drivers, 3wood, hybrids and mostly mid irons... only thing keeping my rounds from not going into the 100s has been my short game and putting. which has been consistent for the past 7 month.

This is the love / hate relationship of golf.

I have no issues playing when it is cold, as long as there is some sunshine to go along and calm winds.

I actually enjoy the cold weather golf.

Yesterday was none of that, the showed up for a second and the wind never stopped blowing, My hands have not felt that cold since I had to change a lower arm suspension assembly from my daughter's car, that she crashed into a curb back in 2012, When she crashed there were about 9 inches of fresh snow on the ground, and for the few hours I was there working, another 6 inches fell.

My hands were purple for awhile after I was done.

My perfect golf weather is high 50s low 60s and sunshine.

i’ve got a winter home in florida and of course this is the first year i’ve golfed and can take advantage of it, and the pandemic has taken a giant steaming turd on those plans. thanks, covid!

i’m in Boca. it’s less to do with things being open and more to do with not wanting to head down to a high-risk area when i’ve got a newborn at home.  

i’d feel like crap going down to enjoy myself and having to stay away from the little guy for 2 weeks when i came back  

we’ll head down as a family and spend some time there around christmas, but we won’t go spend the winter like we usually do.

But getting back into NY without quarantining is the issue I would suspect... @Chip Strokes beat me.

absolutely right. it’s a hassle. at least when we go as a family, we can hole up for 2 weeks together when we get home. 

if we didn’t just have a baby i’d definitely head down. a golf trip to florida followed by two weeks at home away from the wife sounds like hitting the lotto 😂😂

Don't get me wrong, having a summer home and a personal chef is great. I don't miss the hunger or cramped living conditions, but the travel back and forth from summer home to my house just hasn't let up since March this year, and the summer was brutally long. It's still a long drive in my limo and some shorter trips would be really nice. We had one weekend where we just ate hot dogs and tater tots and it was great.

I know, I know, the last thing you guys living in apartments and eating sh!t food want to hear is someone complaining though...  😉 

 

Wow. This is a tough room. 🤣

Still laughing at all your replies, well played boys! I guess I had it coming though (probably deserved more, actually). Thanks for going as easy on me as you did! 👍

 

BTW 

This morning was 58* and breezy, it was chilly, so I DID have to break out the wind jacket.... I gutted it out though. Thankfully It did warm up into the low 70's before the turn.... 😇

I forgot to mention, after braving those conditions this morning, I actually had my best day with my irons in a couple of weeks. Because golf is golf and I can never get everything working on the same day, I couldn't make a putt all day.

The greens were just overseeded, so they over watered and didn't cut them. It was still nice to hit them with an iron shot though, it hasn't been happening often....

Shot 43-44. I'll take it, and try again tomorrow!

I want to have a second home some place warm some day. My wife was born and grew up in the Philippines and we have talked about having a second house/condo there in the future.

Golf is considered a sport of the wealthy in the Philippines. At all the clubs there, you for sure will have caddies. At the driving range, there is a person that tees each ball for you.

having somewhere warm to escape to is the best. once you do it you’ll wish you did it 5 years earlier.

... Very nice and not calling you out, but just remember some here have lost their jobs and are struggling to pay for one home let alone a second home. And for more than a few that have kept their job a second home is still just not financially viable. Just like many have never even played at a Country Club let alone been a member of one.
