I live in virginia.
Give me dry and over 100 over high 80s (or worse) and 100% humidity every day of the week

Dry heat you can sit in the shade and drink a beer and be comfortable

This humid nonsense we have, you can't sit on a porch with a fan and a beer and be comfortable. It's awful

Cool

I’ve lived in both. I found FL to resemble what I would envision to be hades. There is no f’ing escape from the humidity in the summer. AZ is a pleasure in comparison, even at 117*.

I was told to post my article here, I wrote this up 1 week ago from the Safeway Open for my Draftkings. I was told to post it here for $100.00, saving up.



This weekend, the PGA Tour kicks off it's schedule for the 2017-2018 wraparound season at the Silverado CC in the famed Napa Valley. This tournament will be coming right off of the heels of the 2017 Presidents cup, which the U.S.A. easily won. Most of the Presidents cup field will not be present, except for Mickelson, who looks to capitalize on a thrilling Presidents cup run. Lots of choices in a field 0f 144 this week, but picking a lineup is going to be a tricky one, especially with some newcomers and some uncertain players. I fortunately have done research and statistical research on your behalf.

I hope the best for you and your fantasy team, but I am going to influence you with these undeniable players to pick, based off of stats and recent performance.

For your top players, you have honestly 2 guys in a higher price range. I would take Kevin Na, in his last 4 starts on the PGA he has a combined score of -31 and ranks 34th in birdies per round. 2nd would be Brendan Steele, the reigning winner of the tournament as well. He ranks 32nd in birdies per round. You might also go with Zach Johnson, with a last 4 games combined score of -14 and 98th on the birdies per round list. Ryan Moore is also a good call with his last 4 game score combined at -15 and 97th on the birdies per round list.

Ollie Schneiderjans has a 4 game combined score of -19 and 37th on the birdie list. You also have Harold Varner III, who has a 4 game combined score of -10 and 98th on the birdies per round. You could also go with a guy like Chad Campbell, who has a combined 4 round score of -19 and is 138th on the birdie per round list. Another pick to go with is Smylie Kaufman. He has an impressive 4 round score of -27 and 78th on the birdie per round list.

Finally, to go with less expensive players, it might be the way you are going to have a winning lineup this tournament. These 4 players are very noteworthy and a few of them considered dark horses. We have Peter Malnati, very cheap play, but has a 4 round combined score of -34 under and is 106th on the (bpr) list. Next we have Martin Flores. In his last 4 PGA starts he has a combined Total of -27 and is 137th on the BPR list. Robert Garrigus boast such a stellar record, the best by far here with a combined 4 game score of -35 and 14th on the Birdies per round list. Finally you could go with a guy like Rory Sabbatini. He scored last 4 round total score of -30 and is 29th in the most birdies per round category.

With this information, my only hope is that you can concoct some kind of a lineup that will give you the boost you need for your fantasy team. Comparatively to the field, these player stats are golden. The best players are not playing this week, such as Thomas or Spieth. I believe these plays would be worth the effort for you and I certainly will be rooting for them.

The Golf Channel will have coverage of the tournament and can be heard on Xmradio, channel 90. This should be a pretty competitive tournament and the eventual winner will have to have consistency to win the big prize come Sunday. Let's go get the W guys!

Plan 1.
Get a  sales job close to family where you work weekends but have a couple weekdays off, familiarize yourself with the game of golf, and focus those off days off on improving your game.

Plan 2.
Choose golf as a hobby and go to college to find a career (Assuming you have not)

Moving probably wont meet your needs, I would only consider moving after I had put in substantial time and effort (shooting 68 is an OK start).  Its a tough market with little financial reward.

Kid,

If your career best is a 59 or a 61 at a full length tournament ready golf course then, perhaps you could get on the mini tour or consider qualifying to get on the WEB.COM tour.

Not trying to put anyone down, they will eat you alive if you can't shot in the 60's most of the time on any difficult track.
But 68 is a great score at WRX.

Nonsense.  68 is a bad score for all the 350+ drivers here.  You sure you've been here that long?

I have also heard SC is good for golf. What do you say?

AZ, hands down.  It's not even close.

You missed the part where OP lost it (the mods deleted his posts).  I think we're now all recommending he go to Florida.

There are issues with living either in Arizona or Florida for a golfer, it's laden with tourists in the winter months (high green fees as well)  and really too hot to be comfortable in the summer months. It's like the saying goes, It's a nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there year around.

It doesn’t matter which state you pick, if becoming a professional golfer is your goal.  Both, have great courses and competition.  A challenge will be getting into some of the local games.
A friend and I looked to sponsor a couple of young kids at our club, a few years ago.  Both, had one state am titles.  We asked our pro what he thought?  He said until they could get to +6 save our money.
The guys making a living are really good.
