Playing golf in the winter can be a chore. Luckily in Houston, we don’t have a real hard freeze that stops our antics on the links from stopping. In some places, people are so dedicated they are playing courses when the water hazards have frozen over.
While this seems to be a terrible weather situation for golf, it does have an added benefit; you can get your ball from the hazard and take a drop without losing your Pro V1. Or in the case of Bronston, decide to play your shot from on top of a frozen hazard. The problem comes when you lose your footing on the back swing, miss the ball, crack the ice with your club, fall and break the ice and fall into the frozen lake.
Not only does Bronston (who we presume is cold, but okay) have to climb out of the lake, he must count his swing and miss, then his drop and his next shot.
