Winter Depression Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm playing Tuesday, 30* to 40*. I know not a record setter, but the wind could be anywhere from a light breeze to ridiculous... down at the shore. Then over the holiday's, we're down  in North Carolina. Who knows? 30's to 70's. Then we're back in Ct. and it's at the indoor place until spring. ~Tom B.

Wish there was an indoor place here. Only option is a crappy simulator at the pro shop.

Played what I imagine will be the last round of 2013 on 12/4.  After a period of freezing temperatures we had a brief warm up to 50 degrees or so.  There is often the odd period in mid-winter when we have a 3-4 day period of unusually warm weather and once a decade or so we have a winter like 2011-2012.  Typically, however, there is little golf played in SE Michigan until March.

Time to start planning a trip south to warmer climes.

Had our first snow fall yesterday so I"m guessing that's a sign that its time to put the clubs away. Can't complain, though, we've had a pretty mild fall here so I had the chance to play a lot more in November then I was expecting.

Keep a couple of golf balls in your pocket and they don't break.

Seriously...pocket warming isn't enough.   I've shattered enough balls over the years to know better.  Modern balls really get brittle....

Suppose to be in the 50's today.  Hopefully all the snow will be gone by the end of the day, so I can play either tomorrow or on the weekend.

You have a crap attitude.

Try switching balls every hole, or do what it takes to keep the ball at a decent temperature

If that doesn't work, keep your balls closer to your balls.   That'd work. ;-)

Winter in Ohio is bad enough, but my place of business closed it's doors 2 weeks ago so now I'm out of a job too. Pass the pistol please. :-( Anybody up for a swim? My pool's there somewhere.

Been there. Two different times and 18 years apart I lost really good jobs that I thought would be there until retirement.

Things usually work out OK and sometimes for the best.

Good luck.

Thanks. I do have an interview on Wednesday.

Any other fellow NC'inians on the board? Guess we have it pretty decent...winter weather on any given day can be from 20s-70s...its pretty insane how up and down it can be in a weeks timeframe. Earlier this week was 40s, this weekend is 70s, then early next week back to 40s lol! I have already played 4 times this month. With work during the week my only options are Saturday and Sunday (as im sure is the same w a lot of you) so I just sit up all night and pray those "warmer" days happen on the weekend. The real kick in the N*$'s is when its high 60s and sunny on a wed while im slaving away in the office and the approaching weekend is 30s and raining.

How to beat the winter woes:

  • Attend your local golf shop's Christmas party. You might win something really cool in a raffle.
  • Hit the gym: Work on strengthening your hip flexors and increasing lower back flexibility so you can start quick in March.
  • Get  your income tax done by Valentine's Day so you can chart your "discretionary funds" for the coming year.
  • Act for the future! Don't waste time reading things like Winter Depression Thread :-(

    • Thanks for creating this thread @iacas. I’m nearly done with a first read of the book. Just starting the Mental Game section. I’m a big fan of Jon Sherman and Practical Golf. I also listen to The Sweet Spot podcast and appreciate what he and Adam are adding to the community.  My initial take: about 80% of what is covered in this book is in Lowest Score Wins. And in many cases, LSW covers it more effectively by giving succinct actionable advice. There’s a theme and flow that both books use: Use information at hand to manage expectations Pick better targets (for driving and approach play) Learn how to drive the ball further Incorporate random practice to supplement blocked practice LSW does a better job IMO of helping steer the reader towards effective use of practice time by introducing the concept of “Separation Value”. Four Foundations is going to help folks that haven’t read LSW. I found myself finishing several chapters with “is that all???”, hoping Jon would provide more details and actionable advice. For example, Jon advocates becoming a “one trick pony” and limiting your menu of golf shots. I think he could have gone further to help players analytically arrive at an appropriate “sub-menu”. So unless you are just a golf book junkie like I am, if you’ve read LSW I don’t think you’ll find much new here.
