Who says you can't play golf in the winter?
I, for one, teed it up the day after Christmas up here in Rhode Island -- the latest round I've ever played here in the Ocean State (of course, temperatures were in the mid-50s).
My round, however, was nothing compared to the dedication -- and perhaps, shall we say, "craziness" -- displayed by the father/son duo of Jerry and Garrett Clark of Bonner Springs, Kansas, on Sunday.
But the Clarks decided that despite a frozen-tundra looking Sunflower Hills Golf Course that was covered in a blanket of snow with a high temperature registering in at 18 degrees, it was a perfect day to play some golf.
My general rule is that if the temperature is equal/less than the number of holes in a regulation round of golf, the closest you'll find me to the first tee is in front of the clubhouse fireplace sipping a hot chocolate.
But not the Clarks.
Jerry, the elder Clark, manned the camera, while Garrett -- armed with his golf bag and a broom to sweep away the snow so he could hit his shots and putts -- played the course.
Jerry sent in this video to PGA.com to show us how it all went down:
Chilling video. See what I did there?
Jerry says in the video that "the camera crashed due to cold weather."
He also said, "In other news, Bubba Watson is tweeting pictures from the PGA Tour in Maui!"
He wasn't kidding:
Probably as good a segue as any to remind you that the 2014-15 PGA Tour season resumes this Friday from Kapalua's breathtaking Plantation Course in Maui, Hawaii, for the first round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, where the weather is expected to be, well, perfect -- high 70s to low 80s with magnificent sunshine.
If the Clarks flip on the tube to watch the action they'll be saying, "We're not in Kansas anymore."
