I bought a sleeve of the urethane Titleist Tour Speed today, and I like the results.

I just played one against an AVX the other day and liked it as well.  I've played the TruSoft and TourSoft but not sure I'd ever seen a Tour Speed until I found it last week as part of my golf ball booty hauls.

I like the Tour Soft for winter; ground is hard, so lots of bounce and roll in the fairways, and nothing really checks up on the greens anyway.  I've learned to play a ball that runs out more, so that's not an issue.  

I'll have to play the Tour Speed against a PV1x to see how comparable the spin is for me.  Ground is still fairly soft as they are still irrigating, but that's going to end real soon.  Tomorrow night the low is expected to be around 28-30º.  🥶

What’s winter?  Oh! I remember😱 I had 65 of years of it.

Thats the nice part of being down here.  Obviously we get cold mornings but not enough to change what ball I’m going to play.

Winter storm warning for us. 16"-20" at higher elevations and 2-4" for us mile high low-landers.  At breakfast a couple days ago Jennie saw the forecast and said "time to go south".  My Montana golf season looks to be over 🙂.

BTW, your boy IM is running away with the Shriners... just dialed.

Drove it really great, kudos auto flex, irons were terrible, really terrible, fairway woods, chipping and putting were good to very good. 79 on a pretty tough track - one double hurt, started me on a bit of a bogey train.

The Dye course is a fun track. My buddy lives in that community so whenever I get down to see him we play three of the four courses there.

Shot a 42 yesterday on a par 35 local muni. Hitting a stride with the driver, have never been more confident off the tee. I made a number of correctable wedge mistakes that I should be able to fix with a little more practice but putting was the biggest issue. Missed everything outside of 4 ft and I think I was 0/4 on getting up and down.

Disappointing, but if you would have told me that these would be my issues at the beginning of the season, I would take it in a heartbeat as my Driving and approach game has made some huge strides, saving me a lot of scrambling.

Also first time using Srixon XV exclusively during a round, REALLY really like the ball. It felt great. Will definitely need to play it again but from the limited sample size, I would put it over the Chromesoft and Snell MTB X (both of which I did like as well).

No, this is winter.  River (the lab) ran out on the deck this morning, stopped and looked back at me as if to ask 'WTH is this?". So whatcha think, shorts or long pants today? 🙂

Yuck!  One time we went to NE late October I wore shorts as Weather report was cool but no snow.  Obviously I wore shorts on flight up, got off plane in Hartford to 3” snow and no end in sight. At Car Rental switched from sedan to Jeep Grand Cherokee 4wd.  Snow & cold all the time we were there.

I may have mentioned this before...

Friend of mine moved to Phoenix.  He was born in Michigan, spent several years here.  We've chatted several times about the relative weather.

When heat comes up, his response is usually some form of "yeah, but you don't have to shovel sunshine."

But, if you ever change your mind (and one might after seeing rock and sand forever), it's only a 2 hour drive to Prescott Sierra Vista, etc., where you can enjoy a winter beverage and watch someone else shovel.  We just finished the driveway, front and back decks - which has done nothing but re-affirmed our quickly approaching departure date 🙂.

Well, the region needs to make up lots of snowpack and this is certainly a good start.  I'll bet the high peaks and snow catch basins got every bit of the 20"+ forecast.  We just shoveled a healthy 6". It's the heavy early snows and, hopefully late spring snows that are especially helpful.
