The 'Yin & Yang' of Winter Golf ...And a New Podcast

We've been having a relatively mild winter, here in Eastern Pennsylvania. Within the past week I had two chances to get out on our par-3 course for nine-hole two-ball workouts.

But yesterday I was treated to my first full-blown round of the year: three good friends, 18 holes, and $2 on 6-hole match-ups with each playing partner. Temperatures were in the mid-50's, so no winter gloves or bulky clothing was required. Yes, I'll admit we rolled them everywhere, including the un-kept traps. But, I had a thouroughly good time, won $2, took only one double, and had an honest score on the high end of what I'd expect in the regular season.

Today, I woke to snow, ice on the roads, and a howling mid-winter wind. A perfect Zen lesson on Yin-Yang, the essential nature of opposites. How would we know the good days if we never had the contrasting day?

New today: Podcast #13. But, be aware that I've changed from the topic promised in the last program.

We know the good from the bad here. The bad ones have wind over 100 mph for over 24 hours with constant rain. BUT today I play with a high around 72 and tomorrow we play with 77 degrees. This year we didn't loose any trees and kept all house parts intact.

Yes, Dave...

From the pix on your blog I can see that you really do know the good days, and I can only imagine what it all looked like on the bad.
