Of the T I'm ok, not great not bad... I would say the strongest part of my game are my irons, fom like 150 yards in... and then once I get to the green it's a disaster haha
But yeah, golf is a laugh
Here in Alberta though, unless I wanna go into an indoor range or something, I spend my time on outdoor hockey rinks, and up on the mountains in the winter time
My uncle who lives near London/Kitchner Ontario golfed every month of the year except for the month of January. There was no snow on the ground at the start of December and the snow melted before the end of February.
I always thought it would be hard to golf in a city where the weather goes from 35 to -35 Celcius (from 95 to -31 Farenheit) I golfed this past year on the hottest day of the year where with humidex it got up to 45 degrees Celcius/117 Farenheit and walked.
People say that golf isn't a sport. To those people, I contest that they try playing an entire round where it is 45 celcius with the humidity then tell me golf isn't a sport.
I personally like golfing in super heat...rather that than cold weather where I tighten up after the first 9 holes and my game is all over the place.
But I have golfed at 13 degrees....a year ago I did it for a week straight. Golfing wearing two gloves and hat (touque)
Golf is an underrated sport that so many athletes from so many sports play....and it is great office talk with most executives.
