That extra layer or two, especially with today’s performance apparel, isn’t a big deal if the morning of a fall round is a bit crisp. You know, after all, that you could very well have peeled them off by the end of the round, assuming the sun is out.
It’s when the mitts, toques and heavier jackets come out that it becomes a little more awkward and uncomfortable, if the cold breeze and cool temperatures haven’t already done that.
No to worry though, according to this story in the Huffington Post. Apparently, the Weather Network is predicting temperatures this fall to be at or above seasonal norms from coast to coast, while precipitation is expected to be at seasonal norms, the one exception possibly being the East Coast.
That forecast is a bright spot in what has been a wet and cool summer in many parts of the country, where even flooding has occurred on several golf courses, but on the other hand, is the damage done already to the bottom line at the golf operation where you work?
After all, everybody’s back at work or school in the fall and the days are getting shorter, so there isn’t as much daylight in which to get rounds through.
So what’s your attitude towards this pleasant forecast? That’s the question in this week’s GNN Poll.
