In calendar year 2009 the last round I played was December 6. The next time I’d tee it up after that would be the Sunday after the PGA Show at the end of January.
After returning from my media trip to Los Cabos, I was pleasantly surprised to see that about 75% of the snow had melted, and that 80% of my home course was green.
Today I took out some gear to review, and managed to team up with my regular group at River Oaks to play 18 holes. The course was in surprisingly good condition and I made some long putts with two white putters I was evaluating. One putt was 60 feet (and worth several skins).
The temps this coming week will be above freezing, and even one day is supposed to hit 49. In December around here 49 is a heat wave. I hope to get a few more rounds in before Christmas. Good thing too, because I have a lot of gear in my review queue to get to.
