35 Degrees when we teed off….

Shot the lowest 18 hole round of golf in my life today, 73.

37 on the front, 36 on the back. Other then one double bogie on #14 I played a very consistent round.

When I arrived at the course at 10 minutes to 9 the parking lot was full of waiting golfers. It was a little chilly this morning, right at 32 degrees when I left the house at 8:30. by 9:30, as we were teeing off it had warmed to a balmy 35!

The cold weather doesn’t bother me so much. I had dressed in layers so I had no issues. The course however is not so crazy about the frost that came along with the low temps. It’s a standing rule that you cannot tee off until all the frost has broken.

Being it was overcast today it wasn’t clearing all that fast. We were initially scheduled for a 9AM start. The 30-minute delay was not that big a deal, we used the time to warm up on the driving range.

Spec’s; Hit 12 fairways, landed 11 greens in regulation, the other 7 I got up and down, (1 chip, 1 putt), only had 27 putts for the round. Three putted one green.  2 Birds, 11 pars, 5 bogies, 1 double bogie. Par is 68, shot +5, 73.

The course played well and the greens putted true. I swung the club right today.
