    Predicting 2" to 4" snow this afternoon and tonight. 37 degrees when we went off #1 this morning, cloudy, with occasional mist. Two of us played 18 holes in 2 hours, 5 minutes. We were the only ones on the course and no one else was there to even think about playing. Probably the only two to play today. Didn't even keep score. Wasn't real pretty, but would guess it in the upper 80's.

    37 degrees with occasional mist, 18 holes in 2 hours 5 minutes...you, sir, are a golfing god.

    And just a little insane.

    Been told that more than once by golf course staff!! With 200 rounds last year... and already 7 rounds in 2019, one would think we would be smart enough to allow a day or two to go by. No way!! Golf ain't for sissies! Golf was invented to play, not be an attribute for social status. Golf, played correctly and often... is difficult work, but someone has to do it!

    Played Saturday, stunk it up! Hit some good shots but concentration was terrible, too many loose shots and 3 putts. Need to get "in the game" a lot more.

    Well hallelujah, it all came together today. Started with a double bogey, but followed that hole with 2 pars and then a solid round of 76. 2 birdies on the card and a lot of good chips to get up and down for par. Life us good again. Team finished 2nd.

    Thanks Nick. It's been a while. That's 2 sub-80 rounds in 2 weeks. Maybe I'm coming around.

    82 today. Missed a few putts I should have made and made a few putts I should have missed. My New Year's resolution regarding double bogeys is an epic fail. Had two today. But, I'm playing golf in sunny warm weather in January, so no complaints here!

    Winter finally arrived here. We have had a few cold days, pretty much what we should be having for this time of year. I'm playing our Riverside course tomorrow with a Teaching Pro. I can't wait to hear his thoughts!! It's mainly for my son, but hopefully, he will throw down some pearls of wisdom for me too!

    Did it sound something like this: "take less shots in a round and your scores will improve"

    Short version: "make more birdies"

    7 rounds in January may be it for the month. Snow last weekend that didn't melt before some more was dumped last night. Nothing like what folks north and east have, but enough to keep the course closed. We were planning on driving to Kentucky this weekend, but the weather changed our mind on that idea. Now we wait. Wait for enough warm days to get this white stuff gone.

    Ha! My putter was hot today! An eagle and 4 birdies (including three in a row!). Some rubbish too, including a lost ball, where I didn’t finish the hole. Finished -1 for 17 holes. The pro is a young guy attempting to break onto the EuroPro tour. He is going to Q School this spring. Hit the ball a mile. Breezed round in -3. He was more focused on playing than handing out advice. His dad walked round with him. Nice family!

    We were paired against Seamus and a friend. Even giving them a bunch of shots, we still smoked them. The eagle was great. Drive, hybrid and a 20 footer with the pin in! My putter ❤️❤️❤️. I’ll take it!
