The Official Weather Man of the President’s Cup really only cares about the Thursday before The President’s Cup. But he’s nice enough to share his forecast for the weekend with us. Below you have more weather information than you could possibly need for this coming weekend and some music suggestions.
Do I pack the rain gear, how about my new SCSU umbrella i recently won, weather golf gloves, how about my bucket hat or should Karson consider going back to the mall today/tomorrow and get an extra set of matching Puma clothes for his Indy match play on the back 9 in-case the ECMWF model run is correct?
This is always the aged old question when packing for the 2015 prezzy cup and this year is no different. I think it will be your typical heating of the day popcorn showers on Thursday with the best chance of consistent rain could be mid morning to late afternoon on Saturday.
Here are two recent model runs(GFS and EURO for 6pm saturday evening) forecasting over the same time frame but worlds apart on whether or not you’ll get rained on, but rain or shine everyone will be ready for whatever the weather has in store for this group. Carts will be full of rain gear, booze, water (for those who can’t drink more then 1 day straight anymore) and a plethora of other STUFF that one cart will have smoke billowing out of the sides, but the cart in the same group could be totally on a different spectrum that hasn’t ate all day and will be able to drink 24 beers and still feel normal.
But if you want me to give you a guarantee on something that would be considered my 2015 lock of the year, it’s Stew’s group will be listening to Yacht Rock all weekend long. If your not familiar to Yacht Rock and unfortunately not in Stew’s group, you should find a way to navigate your cart and just listen to the sweet music of Christopher Cross and Michael McDonald, it will calm your nerves before hitting the dreadful 1st tee shot while everyone is watching (that’s including you Knoke).
And by the looks of it Mario, Snoren and Horse are fortunate in the Friday am best ball followed by O65, Field and Bersch in the 2 man scramble. You lucky S.O.B.’s.
“Yacht rock” is a pejorative name used retrospectively to refer to the soft rock format that peaked in popularity between the years of 1975 and 1984. In part, the term relates to the stereotype of the yuppie yacht owner, enjoying smooth music while out for a sail. Additionally, since sailing was a popular leisure activity in Southern California, many “yacht rockers” made nautical references in their lyrics, videos, and album artwork, particularly the anthemic track “Sailing” by Christopher Cross. Notable artists also include Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Boz Scaggs, Steely Dan and Toto.
And here is Top 10 Yacht rock songs of all time
Have fun and good luck
