Default First Round of 2018

Well, here’s the 2018 Edition of a thread that’s become an annual thing for me. So how did did your first round of 2018 go? I was on the course just after the ball dropped, in the Eastern time zone, USA. I played a very cold 9 holes on KMDGC. The temperature was in the teens, with just a little breeze, and clear skies. We have about 1” of powder on the frozen ground that was well lit by the bright moonlight.

I played OK considering the temperature, footing, and amount of clothing I had on. I threw with fingerless gloves on, using just a Champion Aviar with an LED. The LED on my Z-Buzz gave up the ghost on hole #1 so it was a 1 disc round to start the year off.

Without the baskets being lit, I missed about three putts that I would expect to make and I had one ridiculous spit out. Still, I was on the course having a good time.

Was anyone else on the course by 12:05? I wrapped up my 9 by 12:35. How about those in time zones that hit 2018 before EST?

I hope that everyone has a great and blessed 2018!

Jim

Done. 7 holes at local pitch putt sinc one is a sleigh hill in the winter. First throw of 2018 hit the pole so cant be all bad. Missed all of my putts though Had fun still. Proper throwing will recommence only once there is no snow. Until then its just for the kicks.

My first round of 2018 will be at the wonderful Showmen's course tomorrow (1/2)! They have baskets set inside old carnival ride cars, and boats, and helicopters etc!

Mine will have to wait a week, until this rude Canadian visitor packs up and goes home, and it warms back up to normal winter.

In the meantime, the lingering satisfaction of my last round of 2017 will have to do---a 4-hour, 27-hole tournament round, so a little extra to tide me over.

My first round will probably be Wednesday at a new course for me, Laurens County Park in Laurens, SC. Little cold to really be getting out and throwing, but we’ll see how today goes

Its negative 15 (air temp, not even factoring wind chill) here in my part of Wisconsin as i write this. I can tolerate the cold with the best of them, but there is no way in getting out and playing anytime soon lol
