St. George is a year-round golf location, however I probably should have passed playing yesterday. After a short frost delay we teed off when it was 33*. I was so layered up I felt like the little brother in The Christmas Story. Front 9 was a struggle with only 1 birdie in our foursome.

Sun broke cloud cover on the back 9 and we were able to shed some layers, but no one scored well. My buddy and I shot 79.

My handicap goes up every winter as my lowest warm weather scores drop out of the most recent 20 rounds. I just went from 5.7 to 7.2. Mind you- I’m not complaining because I’m still playing, and it will be nice soon enough.

The guys just had their Mesquite trip a couple weeks ago. Always finish up at Coral Canyon before the 600 mile drive home. So always have the first three tee times. Almost a two hour frost delay for them this year.

I think we need a filter device for these thread that won’t allow anyone with a Florida, AZ,  (a warm weather place) , etc address to post in these threads. I, for one, don’t need to hear about their balmy temps. I want others to commiserate with me!  

It’s truly a thread for the cooler!

I tend to be the opposite, I'm the first to remove surplus clothing. Last weekend at 13c I seriously considered unzipping the lower half of my trousers to convert them into shorts. I'd already removed my jumper and was playing in Lycra top and tee shirt. I also always take a flask of cold water - kept in the fridge during the week to ensure it's properly chilled :)

I play with a couple guys like that. Shortsleeves  when it’s 40*. I’ll be in shorts to low the 40*s , but a bunch of layers up top!

That’s the other line I got this year from one of the guys, “you can always tell it’s sh!thead (probably an accurate nickname) out there. Coat, stocking cap, winter gloves,.......and shorts,

Played a good half round today - cold, wet (though not raining for most of the round) & windy. Forgot my rain jacket so just went round in Jumper,hat,gloves, but no problems and played well considering. A couple of guys joked about my Christmas jumper as i played through them, but it was actually really good for not getting in the way of my swing, so no worries there.

Starting to be those 30-40 degree weekend morning rounds here in Washington state. I tend to go from a draw player to a fade player in the cold. It might be in my head, but I feel I don't turn as well through the ball when I am frozen so the fade helps me stay on it a bit longer and feel the shorter, hold off swing.

Was 45 on Monday here and felt like i had to take advantage lol. It was cold and wet so it was tough to hit anything flush not off the tee. Basically just looking to get some last season swings before the winter grind. I usually donít even bother keeping score after Halloween, just out there to have some fun and search for my ball under the leaves.

36* this morning in Portland. Shot 75. Fleeced Nike golf pants, UA turtleneck and (aptly named) Mountain Hardwear 32 Degree 1/2 zip pullover. Wool beanie.

Amazing how good modern winter clothing is. So different from just a decade ago. Nothing bulky, can still rotate and swing freely and stay warm at the same time.

And USB handwarmers. These bad boys are so much better than the Hotties I used to buy by the box at Costco. Just have to remember to recharge them between rounds.

1964 Acushnet O-SET M6S Bullseye Putter

New stuff
Cobra ZL 10.5 driver
Adams 5050 16 fairway wood
Adams A2P 18* hybrid
Titleist 716 MB irons 4-PW

About 5*C (40*F roughly) here today. The crazy thing is that on Tuesday it was getting up to about 24~25*C (~75*F). Played a course I last went round in August. I found I was having to hit about 2 clubs more than when I last played the course in summer.
There was little to no wind, so it didn't actually feel that cold; yesterday was worse. Also, I had on a Uniqlo Gokudan Heattech polo neck, a thick long-sleeved T-shirt over that, then a sexy Pringle woollen sweater from 1990. I was positively toasty out there. As I was rocking a Taylormade TPA XVIII putter, I'm surprised I wasn't mistaken for Nick Faldo. Guess it's a good thing I didn't have the Mizunos in the bag.
For winter golf, today was pretty good. Relatively dry, no piercing wind, good company, and true greens.

9c here and quite nice for the most part but we've had a lot of rain recently. I had some good shots but never recaptured the great swings of recent weeks. Ended up with a 99 but I didn't lose any balls. Also it started to rain around the 14th and the 18th was a temporary tee box which was truly horrible. Just a marked out area of the fairway. Sloping slightly and with a ridge half way along. Both me and my buddy hit shocking drives and triple bogied :-/

At least we got out and got to hit some balls and I kept it in double digits.

temporary tees like that are bad, but not as bad as temporary greens that are just cut into the fairway.
