    Pretty sure I could call from the lot with 1 club and 2 balls and they'd wave my onto the tee if I timed it right. 1 hour before sunset. I should go XC ski instead tomorrow probably. Either way gotta get out alone. I'm driving my wife nutz.
    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.

    . instends to stay OPEN during this time.
    We have taken extra precautions for the safety of All Golfers visiting Brennan Golf Course. Continuous cleaning/sanitizing throughout the building, of golf carts, pull cart handles, keys as well as sanitizer being available in the Golf Shop. We are fortunate that Golf is an outdoor sport and contact is limited.
    If you do not feel well, please stay home

    Thank goodness something is open.

    Was able to go for a 27 hole walk this week. Actually played quite consistent. Shot an 84 the first go around. Blew up on #11 (Quirky Par 5) (OB Tee Shot hitting 3, Only Chunk shot of the day, good shot that found hardpack, bladed the chip, missed the elevated green to the short side....for a 9 (We play double par contrary to the ROG)) Everything else was bogie or par. Didn't score the bonus holes but was playing pretty good so I dialed up the aggressiveness. Only had 1 bird and no blow up holes. Temps dropped and my yardages were all over the place but mainly just nice to be out. Course had no pins and pulled the cups up. I didn't take enough advantage of the circumstances (Just hit your putts with enough guts like a scramble or match play).

    I did get one of those Orange Ball tempo trainers in the mail last week (mine is a yellow ball generic model) and was only able to swing it for 10 minutes at most over a few days. I was wanting to finish my back-swing a little better, get my hands a bit higher and behind me. I really noticed the difference and was quite impressed with the feeling I was getting while actually playing. It really felt that I was swinging THROUGH the ball and I was quite impressed with the training aid and the results I was getting even with such limited use.

    I was blasting my drives!

    I've got an Orange Whip that I've never used. I guess given the dearth of other exercise options, I've no excuse not to bust it out. All courses under mandatory closure in IL. Brutal. I might have to drive to Indiana or WI if we get a day or two of decent weather. (Fat chance this time of year.)

    Courses shut down here.

    Iím thinking walking a golf course would be a great way to get out and still practice social distancing.

    Most clubhouses are closed (some still take $ and have restroom access) but everything but the course is closed. No ranges, putting greens, ball washers, carts...pay over the phone with cc. Now the cups have inserts so the ball does not fall in cup far, so pins stay in

    Westchester county public courses are still open around here in New York with strict guidelines.
    I would get out there and walk to get some exercise and practice social distancing.
    I just can't.
    Maybe next weekend.

    Courses in NY are open but everything else is closed so bring your own and pee in the trees, pay by cc over the phone. I'm gonna go for a walk on the course down the street one day soon. It's a great mt course, semi private and cheap at $35 for 18. Nutmeg you should come check it out when you're up to it, it's in Somers.

    Love my orange whip - helps me with getting stretched out before rounds, smoothing out tempo, and getting into a good position on the transition.

    I didn't use it between playing and I never really had the feeling I was getting before on Thursday and it was left in the closet. Used it a few minutes when I went home and for 5 minutes warming up on the Tee box Friday. I really dig it.

    All of Westchester county courses are open plus Sterling Farms in Stamford, CT.
    I'm just waiting to fully recover to end the quarantine so I can get out and get some fresh air.
    It's been 23 days since I saw outside the world.

    Thanks for the info.
    That's a bit of way up, so I'll probably stick with Westchester county courses.
    Let me know if you head down this way.
    We can meet and greet 6 feet a part and maybe walk 18 holes together.

    First full round of the year for me. Course is still closed for the winter. I walked 3 holes two weeks ago in the snow. I thought about taking the cart but thought it might be a little to wet still. The wife gave me this little carry bag for Christmas so thought I better use it. Took a driver , a 23* hybrid, 7 iron, wedge, and my putter. Itís going g to take a while to get back in form but did get my first birdie of the year on a par 3.
    I'd rather die while I'm living then live while I'm dead

    County executive here shut down all golf courses (except for state-run courses). Said he was getting many complaints

    Better get here quick. Mayor Martin is closing both courses after the 10th. Just announced.
