Another winter break, another missed opportunity to get back into the game. Twice now, the 2015-2016 and the 2016-2017 winter breaks, my plan was to visit the family in Southern California then head over to Scottsdale to play golf. It's been more than 2 years now since I've play a real round. Scottsdale, home to some great courses like the TPC Stadium course, would be my triumphant return to the game. Alas, 2015 I caught a nasty cold and didn't even make it to Scottsdale. This year I made the drive but winter allergies sidelined me. Allergies started as soon as I got down to Southern California and got worse in Scottsdale. Wasn't until I made it back to Las Vegas that the allergies went away. At this rate I might as well sell my clubs.
