The Sun Is Finally Out and My Golf Season Is Here!

I generally do not fuss about the spring weather because it changes at a moments notice. Recently, we have experienced a great deal of rain and cool weather for this time of year. I know that the warmer weather is coming and that my golf season will be in full swing (pardon the pun) very shortly. For this I am definitely grateful. With the mix of wet weather and life responsibilities, my 2022 golf season is starting out slower than I expected. It is all good, however, and my mood is growing in positivity with the appearance of the sun.

Best Start To My Golf Season Ever!

My golf season started on a high note yesterday. I have had many great starts, but this year was my best ever. There were two instances that set yesterday’s round above my previous first rounds.

Playing Golf In the Cold and Wind

The last two rounds of golf have really challenged my game. With gusts up to 65 kph (40 mph) and temperatures around 10° C (50° F), I found the playing conditions very tough. Before Padraig and his crew from the northern shores of Ireland start laughing at me, I think it is fair to say that for our area, these were very tough conditions. It challenged all my play making abilities to a point where I realized that I have some work to do with respect to my mid iron play. But this is a good thing…..right?
