It's really cold in the lake at present.
That didn't deter Allar Pahn from Estonia who accepted the ice challenge.
Michael Tambour took advantage of the strong southerly to score his hole in one today.
The balls hold up and drop straigher and softer into the hole when the wind is front on.
So when it looks rough and impossible think yes I'm going to win today. Its also great practice to learn how to hit into the wind.
Finally, the snow has arrived and there is plenty of it.
The base is over 2 metres at both Turoa and Whakapapa and growing.
I've checked the long-range forcast and Monday and Tuesday look like the best days to get amongst it.
See you there.
James Rosenberg from Hawkes Bay travelled to Taupo with his girlfriend for a weekend escape. Little did he know he was going to win a skydive from Taupo Tandem Skydiving.
He tried offering it to his girlfriend but she was 'tooo scared' and told James 'no way you must do it!'.
Hope the weather is calm enough for you tomorrow James.
Great shot Kevin. Hit beautifully into a light Souwesterly breeze.
Note: this is the wind that holds the ball up and makes it drop straighter and softer into the hole.
