People in Japan are nuts! They make golf reservations to play way way way in advance. Months in advance at times. So when it comes to the day of playing, they are all excited about going. Doesn't matter what the weather is.... Geeez.... So when your playing with customers that are crazy about going, you can't cancel, even if its frickin 9 degrees and raining....So frickin cold. For an ex-Californian its almost unthinkable to play in such weather.
