Winter Storm Kayla is roaring across the middle of the United States today, creating blizzard conditions up north and spawning thunderstorms and even tornadoes down south. We hope everyone is staying safe and warm.
 
Up in Minnesota, a layer of snow is blanketing Hazeltine National Golf Club, which will host the 2016 Ryder Cup about eight months from now. As I write this, it's still snowing up there, the temperature is 30 degrees, the wind chill is 18 degrees, and the wind is whipping from the north-northwest at 17 miles an hour. And the forecast calls for a total of 9 to 12 inches of the white stuff. Brrrrrr.
 
 
Snow on golf courses always looks great – unless, of course, you're trying to squeeze in a round – but Hazeltine looks especially fantastic right now. In the left-hand photo at the top of this page, the Ryder Cup banner is proudly on display in the window. And on the right is the club's famous "Walking Man" statue (he's also the centerpiece of the club's logo) trekking through the snow.
 
Hazeltine got a nice layer of snow about a month ago, no doubt will get more before the winter is over. That's okay with us – we can't see enough photos of this magnificent venue, no matter the season.
