Even though there's already 6 inches of snow since I shoveled in the morning, I prefer to space it out rather than do it all at once. There might be individual circumstances where I'll change it up, but I think it makes it easier. This is assuming you're doing it by hand.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

Mostly all in one shot. I take a couple of 10 minute breaks during the process unless the accumulation is really light. 

When its the wet, heavy stuff we had the other day, taking a breather or two is the smart play.

All at once unless it’s a really long storm or when it will be over.

If it’s going to be more than 12” of snow, I’ll shovel it in shifts. I’d rather shovel 10” of snow twice than 20” in one shot. Plus I have about 400’ of sidewalk.

I would rather not shovel any of it. I will choose “Snowblower”.  
 

For the record, i voted for “Shifts”

Y'all just talking about where the snow thrower can't go, right?

I am the snow thrower. I shovel my sidewalks the way man was intended to, uphill - both ways. Like my forefathers before me.

When I lived up north, we had three storms in quick succession and by the second one you had to do shifts, otherwise you couldn’t even get a handle on it.   That was the time I was speaking to my neighbor over the snow that was being shoveled and the only reason I knew she was there was seeing her shovel at it’s highest point when shoveling.   It was well over 6 feet

Depends on the total amount predicted to fall.
If its only a few inches - All at once
If it's over six, then I start clean up after 3 and then clean up the rest later.

Living in the mountains for many years, I've shoveled way more than I care to remember...

When I moved to the Portland area the next winter we got 12" of snow overnight. I had no snow shovel and was forced to get out with my kids sled. Awful experience. I went out bought this beautiful snow shovel and got myself prepared. This was end of 2015. Haven't touched it since, it is still sitting in the box.

Whenever it does snow (anything more than a few inches) I'll be ready.

Oh, and I prefer to do it all at once.

I use both a snowblower and a shovel (when I want the exercise).  John expressed my opinion. 

The attach snow is my wife when she was young in 1967.   I remember taking all day to shovel about 30'.   We had a VW Beetle at the time and snow was piled higher than the car.   Any more the most we get is about 6" at a time.

How about 2” ten times?😜

All about timing for me.  If it's a heavy overnight snowstorm, I'd always go out before bed and clear what had fallen so far...and throw down some salt.  If it was a snowstorm during the day...probably just let it finish and bite the bullet.

EXCEPTION: if it's gonna be windy, don't waste your time.

if not available then yeah I’d try to go in shifts. Goal is to get as much snow gone before people trample all over and turn it to ice.

Spoken like someone from Chicago.

You guys should use a flamethrower on the course so we can get back to golfing sooner during frost delays.  And it might help to dry it out, too!

I know you’re joking, but that would be really easy to do if I actually wanted to spend all day outside in the cold.

    • Meanwhile on the PGA Tour, Scheffler is five ahead through 15 with play to resume on Monday. If he wins, it would be his fourth in five starts. Has two players ever dominated like that simultaneously?  
    • Day 109- Made some full swings today. Hopefully that means I’m close to 100%, although a particularly painful sneeze has me keeping expectations more realistic. 
    • Well done! And i would have 100% believed a 200+ 6 iron off the tee. No need to give away your secrets!
    • Day 286: mirror work - checking posture and grip and then working on hip movement. 
    • Ok.  So I have this problem:    If I place the ball in the middle of my stance (when hitting my irons, like you're supposed to), I just can't seem to make good contact.  I'm chunking it; it seems like I'm hitting way behind the ball, and my clubhead is not yet at the bottom of the swing trajectory (ie where it's supposed to be when contact is made).     I'm not sure why this is.  I think it may be because I'm not bending enough at the waist, leaning forward.  I may be standing up too straight.  If I place the ball forward in my stance (by as much as 3-4 ball lengths, especially with my long iron), I get nearly perfect contact . . . but with a hook/pull tendency.
