Got rear ended on 12/10/17. Continued low back pain. Tried to play 12/26/17 but could not get to my left side. Shot 88 by parring the last 4 holes.
I was miserable the rest of the day, on the floor on my back.
Getting treatment (massage) that’s helping.
Going to try to play next week.
I’m angry because I moved to Tucson so I could play golf all winter in some decent weather.

- Where
    Juniper Golf Club Redmond, Or
- Weather
    It was around freezing and got cold throughout the round.
- How long since your last round (some of you it will be 1 day :( )
    I played 12-31-2017 It was around 45 and Sunny
- How you played vs. how you normally play
    We played a Backward Par 3. Tee off from the 9th Tee to the 8th Green. 8th tee to the 7th green and so on. It would have been more fun if it had not been so cold. There were 2 hole in ones.
- Anything else you want us to know  
     The ground was mostly frozen, so you had to play some interesting shots.

Second round of year was a little better
Kearney Hill Lexington Ky. Pete Dye links style
Wind started around 15 finished 25-30 the last 12 or so.
Fairways and greens went up about 30% from round 1
-1 of through 15, screwed up and doubled 16 shot 74
8 better than round 1
Now we have snow, and I think I'm closed out for at least 10 days.

Haven't been able to get out yet but my last round in 2017 during the Christmas break was a 78, so hoping that continues in 2018.

Played 9 holes this morning for the first time since Thanksgiving.  Overcast weather in the mid 50s with 15-20mph winds.  Course was wet so the greens were miserably slow.  Shot +2 with some saving up and downs.  Looking forward to a full 18.

As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.

First time out this year and only second time touching the clubs since Thanksgiving weekend.

Windchill was negative 10 Fahrenheit last Saturday, so the mid-20s windchill today is a veritable heatwave.

Who'd have thought that mid-20s with sustained winds would be thought of as good weather, but I had to take advantage.

Shot a 44 from my usual tees.  Which is a nice 9 holes for me.

If the winds keep up, it's going to be a tough day for passing in the Eagles/Falcons game in a few hours, which will be played less than 7 miles away as the crow flies.

Guess that'll benefit the Wentz-less Eagles in trying to keep up with Matty Ice.

Course - Al Hamra Golf Club, Ras al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates

Date - January 3rd. Had a three week break from golf.

Weather - Pretty much perfect conditions. Sunny, light breeze and 25 degrees Celsius and the course in great shape.

Score - 84 which is a decent but not great score for me. Started of with a ball in water and a double bogey, but I had one birdie on the back 9. Rest were pars and bogeys.

Played a lot of golf during my vacation in UAE, but now I'm back home again and there's going to be a longer break from golf. Season usually starts somewhere around mid-March here in southern Finland.

First full round yesterday, shot a nice 81. Only a three putt and some tree trouble that ended in a lost ball kept me from breaking 80 for the first time.

Be sure to post your first round of the new year. 1/6/2018

- Where: Orange Park CC, Orange Park Fl

- Weather: 48 degrees with a NE wind up to 16

- How long since your last round: 2 weeks but typically play 2 times a week

- How you played vs. how you normally play: Typically shoot 68-75 from the tips here. We played the blue tee's because of the weather at 6487 versus the tips at 6935. I played some really bad golf, never hit the face of the club all day, had this ugly little push cut going all day long. Got up and down a bunch which saved my score a little. Shot 80

- Anything else you want us to know: 2018 and my golf game is in a bad place right now. Everything I hit is a push cut and I can't get rid of it, And my putting sucks. And, I am not a range guy! lol
