    It sure did seem like winter just didn't want to go away here in Southern Ontario, they even still have flurries in the forecast. I like to think that has a lot to do with "just in case..." But at this point, I think it's safe to say, Canadian golf season is right around the corner!!

    With that said, I wrestled my clubs outta the basement and just let them soak in some sunshine. They needed some fresh air!!

    There's still some snow on the ground in shaded areas and my lawn looks like ass, but I'm starting to get the itch! ImageUploadedByShot Talk1428153956.920538.

    Have an 8:30 tee time tomorrow, it may be a little frosty when we arrive, but I can't wait to get out and swing the sticks!!

    Thank you sir! I'm sure a little luck will be needed. There's just a little rust from this winter for sure

    You don't need luck. Good or bad, at least you're playing golf again :)

    Here I am, sitting at work a 4 am and you d***heads are probably drinking beer and talking of the latest round that you played today, bet you all think it was too hot to play as well...

    But come tuesday I hope that I can do as Louie and get the season going.

    I manage the trains in the northern half of Sweden, if something happens I have to act. But a night like tonight I watch the playoffs and adding to the post count in Shottalk :)

    There is eight 48 inch screens on the wall, there I can monitor all our trains and try to find potential problems (at the moment one of them is connected to the NHL network...).

    Well... It sure wasn't pretty, and I was most definitely rusty from the extended off season. But I got my cuts in this morning, had a blast and will no doubt be out there again very soon.

    Touch was GONE! Had nothing!! It's amazing how quickly that deserts you after a lay off. Irons and woods started coming around on the back, but my putter decided not to show up at all. My one bright spot was that I didn't loose a ball!! Which is a silver lining for sure. The other being time spent outdoors with a couple real good friends!!

    Can't wait to do it all again!
