King of Golf Cartoons: ‘Frozen Golfer’

What are the coldest conditions in which you’ve played? I’ll go first. On a Christmas Day long ago, a buddy and I teed it up at Desert Aire in California. It was 27 degrees. Light snow was falling. We were the only two souls on the closed golf course.

A buddy and I played once during intermittant snow squalls. The temperature was above freezing. Then suddenly the skies would open up. It would become a white-out and the ground would have a 1/2 inch layer of snow. It was hard to walk because the snow would build up on our spikes. Putts would roll and accumulate snow until the "donut" fell sideways. As soon as the squall would pass, the snow would disappear and everything was green again.

I will often step outside of my sheltered driving range to hit a few off the frozen ground with snow falling. Just feels good to hit without walls.

Also played in hail (more like slush) on Opening Day last year.

LOL. That's a very funny cartoon. I remember playing gold in that type of weather. I agree with Heather, It feels good to hit a few balls without walls
