Played my first golf of 2021 - actual temp was 2C, raining, wind that moved it to “feels like” -2C per weather app. Funnily enough, my two courses, having been almost fully booked, had no one apart from me playing. It was me, green staff (and now I better appreciate what their job can be), some dog walkers and a lot of magpies. Finally as I teed off 17, I saw a pair of golfers staring the first of our new course.
The golf was pretty average with a number of doubles and a single birdie but the main test was of my new Titleist winter mittens - very effective until the 6th at which point the water was through my wet weather gloves so my finger tips were getting cold despite use of the mittens between shots. At that point, and with the rain pouring, I did consider playing the 12th tee instead of the 7th but instead also got out my new USB handwarmer. A combo of the handwarmer, being switched each hole in one or other of the mittens, made all the difference!
Pleased to have played and kept the ball I started with - as well as demonstrated the benefit of Galvin waterproofs!
Happy golfing for 2021.
