Bill Johnson, of Murphysboro, prepares to take a swing Tuesday at Jackson County Country Club in Murphysboro. Johnson said he played professionally in the past, but now just plays for exercise. Compared with the past few years, he said, the weather this January has been good. According to the Weather Channel website, however, daily high temperatures will drop more than 10 degrees beginning Thursday, with the colder weather remaining through the weekend.
