I finally got to get out to the course today. Played at a course I haven't played before. The round started off great with a Par on an average length par 5. After that it kind of just went to hell. I'm hooking everything with my driver, but they're still finding the fairway about half the time, just no where near the length I'm used to getting. Short game was horrible as well.

I don't understand how you guys deal with it. I played my first round on the year on january 2nd. and will play my last round somewhere in the end of December. I now realize why I pay so much to live in Socal.

What state do you live in? Up here in MA I might be able to play this coming weekend if weather permits.

I'm in WV. We've had a few days that I could've been out already this year, but I've had other things going on.

The courses around here start back up this week. YAY! I should be golfing 9 this friday, caddy on saturday, then golf another 9-13 in the afternoon...if weather permits (knock on wood). I've hit the range more than a few times, so I'm ready.

Glad to hear that the golf season is finally starting and all of us in the cold north are getting back at it. To the OP, your short game will come back with time.

So far this year we had only one day that some courses were open. That was last Friday and I was at the big golf show in Novi, MI. Hopefully we can hit the links again in the next couple of weeks.

Sounds about right

Same here

You think you got it bad. Here in South Dakota it's triple digits throughout July and August, 100% humidity and the wind usually blows so hard it feels like you have a hair dryer on you all day. :(

I am soooo envious of you warm weather people. I am with the Michigan group. A few courses are just starting to open, but weather is still up and down (mostly down, brrrr!). The only good thing, as mentioned in previous post, is that the golf shows and demo days are all starting up.
I was going back through some stats and noticed that the earliest I ever got out (in the last 4 or 5 years) was March 14th and the latest I played was an odd round in November.

We can play year round in GA, but my first round this year was last week.

137-ish score - ouch. 75F degree sunny enjoyment - priceless. Now if I can just get my score closer to that perfect temperature...

I want to play tomorrow but I think it'll still be too cold here for it (and they call this the mild part of Canada)

Leaving for Vegas on Sunday but I doubt I can sneak away from the wife for a round

My first round of the year was last Saturday. Shot my lowest ever score, 91, and won a tournament against 102 people. Handicap committee got annoyed that I'd thrashed my handicap by 7 shots and cut me to 18. Grr.

I was able to get out yesterday. Course was in reasonably good shape for so early in the season...and I shot 87 (not bad by my standards, especially for the first round of the year).

It's getting to be the "start of the season" around here in Northern New England, ranges are starting to open, but there are still pockets of snow on all of the courses. And it's really a double edged sword, you want the snow to melt off as quickly as humanly possible, but you also know that if this really happened some of the courses would be damaged by the flooding (I can think of 3 courses that I like to play that are in 'lower' areas that could be damaged) and that's no good.

I think that some of the courses are looking to open the last week of March, and with weather supposedly in the mid to high 40's all week, we just might make that date ... it really can't come quick enough if you ask me! :)

My interest in golf has remained consistent all through the winter this year because I found out about the dome within an hours drive. There are also a couple of year round driving ranges that still get business even during the cold cold days. I have been hitting off the mats both in the dome and at the ranges outdoors for a while. The last week or two has had mild weather. I have actually able to see the entire ball flight. The next step is actual grass. The last week in March would be great. I am thinking a couple of weeks into April though. I have been surprised in the past just how fast the last of the snow melts away. Hopefully that is the case this year!

I would rather live there than in my part. We are pushing above 0 temps today, but the courses won't start to open until late next week and even then they are about an hour away. Courses open in my region will be open around the 2nd-3rd week of April.

I am looking forward to that more than anything right now.

    • I 100% Second your statement! My company just reinstated mask mandates in open areas for all and a few other reasonable restrictions.  All are things I can "LIVE" with. (pun intended)
    • What is it about a person who has a platform if you will and cannot use it to encourage people rather than tell everyone that if “…your young and strong like me” you don’t need a shot. What a fool!
    • Yea, that is very low spin. I wonder what your angle of attack is compared to your dynamic loft at impact. Your launch angle is good. The spin rate is just way too low.  The type of ball influences spin rate more so on irons and wedges than driver. So, a range ball could cause some lower spin numbers. With your ball speed, you should be in the high 6000's towards 7000 rpm.  Could be the ball + golf shaft + how you swing  
    • I don't know why, but I just enjoy watching this movie. I've probably seen it like a dozen times now. Maybe I don't over analyze it, and more so just enjoy the characters just getting fooled. Like, I don't nit pick movies much anyways, or if I know the surprise ending then I don't really care if some earlier plot stuff doesn't hold up as well. 
    • The Double, a 2011 Richard Gere/Topher Grace film about a Russian assassin. Par. Better than I expected. The Usual Suspects, with my wife. Birdie. Almost an eagle, but it doesn't entirely hold up if you know the ending. There aren't that many little clues planted throughout, unlike some films of this type. And yes, I've been watching a lot of movies lately for some reason.
