North Carolina weather is really nice right now. We had a lot of wet weather in February and March. I'm tired of playing in the mud, luckily it's great conditions at the moment but the heat is starting to kick in, so it's mornings or evenings for now.

Rain everywhere it seems. One of the few really positive things about my home courses is that they drain like champs.

On the other hand, the rough is straight-up gangster right now.

Yea that's what it's like at the courses I play. I'm actually ok with that. Missing the fairway should be penal and it helps stop my ball from rolling into the woods.

I get it, but when every group on the course conducts extended ball searches every hole or two, it's tiresome.

Had a round go 5 hours a few weeks ago. Don't even ask about how we scored.

One positive thing about the rain... my local course enlarged the pond on hole 3 this off-season and it's filling up pretty fast.

Here in SE Texas, we were CPO for months during what is our winter and early spring.  It was not fun.  Now we are getting into the part of the year where we have that 10% to 20% rain chance every afternoon but usually not enough to soak the course.  Now we just need the wind to die down a bit.  Oh...and the #$%& gnats to go away.  They are horrible.

Same in North Texas. Only a few playable Saturdays. -Marv

I'm in North Texas (Richardson) and for most of April/Early May are course was unplayable and driving range was mat only. 

It has been getting better recently though

The downside of the great Florida weather is you have to live with Floridians.

    • Save your money and get a good unit. Sounds like you’re serious. The problem is your budget. Unfortunately, better units simply won’t likely fall to within your budget at this point in time. The mevo+ looks promising but the stickers would be a deal breaker for me. My set up is a gc2, computer with FR1 (with all courses), country club elite mat, projector, and hitting screen. I’m sure I’ve left something out. The only problems I have with the gc2 is the fact that it over-rewards low spin shots (like driver) on the carry distance. Otherwise, it’s very accurate. Really the only data points I care about are ball speed and start line; I don’t curve the ball too much generally. If my ball speed and start line are where I want it, I’m pretty happy. Other potential issue I see for it moving forward: it does not have a LED flash like the quad so those have to be replaced after a while (long time but still). That said my foresight guy gets me what I need and has taken care of me. 
    • The Ping G410 Plus sits open at address. My suggestion is to take your grip and hold it straight in front of you with the club face is square, then address the ball. Your push should then become a draw. 
    • Erik already told you what you need to do from a technical standpoint.  I think you're trying too hard and you're getting emotional while you're playing. I can tell from your post. Emotions can help you focus in some sports, but in golf they will absolutely punish you. If you let your emotions get the better of you, they will reinforce the negative and ignore the positive while you are playing. And once that starts you might as well pack it in for the round. You and I have been playing about the same length of time. I'm a 90s golfer. I don't know if I'll ever break into the 80s consistently. It's a goal, but the world won't end if I don't. You've put more time and effort into this than I have. The biggest lesson I learned was to play the game one shot at a time. Forget the last shot that you hit. It's gone. It's not there anymore. You have an entirely new situation in front of you. Look it over, figure out how to best play it, pull the club, go through your pre-shot routine, relax, visualize the successful shot, trust yourself, and swing the club. "What happens if I hit a bad shot?" you say. Laugh if you have to. You're not playing for a $ millions. The shot is gone. You have a new shot. It's the only way to deal with it without getting negative thoughts. Play within your game. Don't try to do what your game doesn't allow you too do.  You also said "an easy 6i shot". Now I don't know if you meant to take an easy swing with the 6i or it was a simple 6i shot. English is vague. If you meant the latter, you assigned a value to the shot. It's just a 6i shot. You either make it or you don't. Saying it's 'easy' and missing it means failure. Having it just be a shot and missing the green means you just missed the green. You have to chip or pitch on. No value to the shot. A former tour pro gave me this advice. And I'll mention, this is one of the most difficult things to do, but it can keep your head clear of negative thoughts through a round. That's all I have to say about this. YMMV.
    • 101, 49/52. Long track, 6100 yds par 71. Wet so no roll.  My long game is weak but what concerns me more is my approach and wedge game let me down today.  
    • Hi Warren,  I have not started working on adding drywall for my garage. Thank you for the tips on adding insulation and soundproofing acoustic panels. I plan to take 1 week off and start doing drywall mid November. I am in Southern California so heating is not an issue. I can use a space heater if needed.  Right now I am leaning toward Skytrak because it seems like it is better for simulator golf games. I don't plan on taking the device to the range. I will checkout the Golf Simulator Forum.
