Played golf in winter? Now that's avid!

His hobbies, according to a thumbnail sketch he wrote some years ago, included golf, reading (mostly history), and "chasing after grandchildren." He chased his nine "little monsters" around tennis courts, golf courses, beaches, and museums; a trip to "Grampy and Nana's" by out-of-towners often included a visit to the Mystic Aquarium. He was an avid golfer until just a month before he passed away. In winter, he and his most hardy friends would play in ski caps, long johns, and neck warmers. They insisted that everyone hit their short putts, particularly when the temporary greens were icy.
