The picture below is for all you smug Floridians, Houstonians and even Southern Californias basking in your winter sunshine. We Chicagoans take untolled abuse from you folks about our abysmal winter weather. Well it was 60 degrees here yesterday and I was able to play golf for the first time ever in the month of January. Not polar golf with stocking hats, gloves, or long underwear but shirt sleeves. Plus we had one added benie that you warm weather folks could never experience - frozen ponds on all the water holes. The picture below is a 195 yard par 3 that requires a 175 yard carry over water. Normally a shot approached with much trepidation. However, with a frozen lake, if you hit the shot a bit fat...no sweat because the ball merely bounced on the ice and up onto the edge of the green. So folks it doesn't get much better than this.
