Apart from every time I log onto the forum it would probably standing on the parctice ground on Saturday with the car saying -2, barely light enough to see, and trying to feel my hands on the club getting ready for our winter knockout and wondering if the swing from the lesson on Thursday would work or not.

This time last year, the only loon at the driving range, -8 on the car on the way there and snow blowing into the bay so fast you could check the swing path after every stroke!

Whimps. I used to be a member of The Royal South Georga Golf and Country Club. Get up at 1:30 am, drink a pint of battery acid, standing on the first tee in crampons and guy ropes hoping the Captain would not push through.

I had a similar experience a few years ago, only person on the range in sub zero temperatures - having a lesson :confused:

I've never questioned my sanity.

I can't find it so I can't ask it.........

15 years ago the only thing that would stop me playing is the course being closed.
I'm a little more picky these days - but not much.

Last Christmas Eve played in the snow getting balls to stop in a hoop placed round the base of the flag. Fantastic fun!!!!

Prior to that turning up to play in a fun comp (shotgun start at 8.30) with 63 other nutters with the car temp gauge showing -8*C.
