As North Carolina (and most of the Southeastern United States) gets its first snow of the season, I find myself watching the golf in Abu Dhabi with great fondness -- for the warm weather, that is. I suppose Rory (+3) and Tiger (E) aren't quite as thrilled -- as I write this, they haven't even teed off for their second round yet. Tiger is 6 shots off the lead and McIlroy is actually below the projected cutline. Justin Rose is leading so far.
I suppose I could say the same about the Humana Challenge in La Quinta CA -- that is, about my fondness for warm weather. Last week's Sony winner Russell Henley shot a 64 in his first round, making four of his first five rounds as a PGA Tour rookie either 63 or 64.
See, warm weather is good for you!
And today the Champions Tour kicks off their year at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship. Yes, Fred Couples and Tom Watson are scheduled to play.
And yes, they're playing in Hawaii. [-sigh-] At least it's all on TV later today.
In the meantime, I guess I'll figure out how I'm supposed to walk the dog in several inches of snow. Did I mention my fondness for warm weather?
