Winter Depression Thread

Remembered one important thing about winter golf where I live the hard way last week.

I live on the side of a hill that tends to block a lot of wind. Wind conditions at the course are going to be several times worse than at the house.

I'm thinking there is an advantage. 
I don't know about you, but I tend to get a lot of shrinkage when they're cold.

From my point of view the only depressing thing about winter in the PNW is the reduction in roll to zero or near zero. I am originally from Michigan and enjoyed snow; especially since it caused mass exodus of tourists in Traverse City. On the other hand I don't miss clearing ice and snow daily or driving on slick roads. In western WA I can play golf year-round and take a short drive to see snow or ski. However, if and when covid finally settles and I am comfortable playing hockey again that may cause more emotional conflict.

@KMP... Yep, I've already had several drives, even low ones, that have backed up about a yard.  You won't be playing Saturday.  😁

Hopefully Sunday!

Not quite on topic but close... I am depressed when we have 11" of snow and cars try going down my extremely steep side street (2nd best sledding hill in Bellingham) and often end up sliding sideways.  The street in front of my house parallels the hill... 3 blocks away there is a plowed/salted/beet juiced arterial street that will safely get you off the hill.  Wondering if they are worried about gas mileage or they think cars always stick to the street?

Suffering cabin fever.  Golf course has been closed for almost a week.

I plan to battle winter depression this year by working hard on my game.

I just finished setting this up in my garage. Not sure if I'll be able to film down the line, but I can definitely do Caddy View. 

I will, however, be able to swing every club in the bag. 

I just got that hitting mat for Christmas from the spouse. It's pretty nice. It comes with 4 or 5 inserts on which to hit. Maybe I'll put up a review of it.

Very tidy garage. Are those bats on the ceiling? Turn everything around by 180 degrees, open your garage door on a nice day and you can film down the line.

🤣 Nope, those are pully do-dads which used to be for hanging bicycles. But now we have a shed for those.

You need to put a piano in there as a target like @GolfLug!

Great setup! The one thing I’ve always wanted was a big garage with tall ceilings I could hit golf balls in. Unfortunately, I have a narrow single car garage with a 9’ ceiling. And there’s a car parked in it.

Yea she’s not going anywhere. I need a 3-car garage. One bay for the car, one for my gym, and one for golf 😃

    • Day 163 (21 May 22) - left foot, skin breakdown again. Did some lag drills with the putter using heads up technique.  
    • Day 76.  Qualifier (stroke play) for my club's match play tournament.  Shot an 86 and qualified    Also in happy news:  my putting.  No, I didn't make many more putts, but I did miss in a lot better places.  My missed putts from long range are closer and my missed putts from 3-15' are typically going past the hole but leaving me with a tap-in (instead of 1-2').  I think this is a result of more putting practice and means the skill is improving because my misses are smaller.  
    • Had 3 birdies today, got to count one towards the challenge. 
    • So I just killed one of these tees. Still have 2 left though haha
    • My son had a club fitting today and he loved the Callaway Epic Super Hybrid. He is going to replace his 3W with a 5H Super Hybrid. The fitter said Callaway has ended production of this club and will sell them at the discounted price, which still seems kind of high to me, until they are all gone.
