Winter Depression Thread


Recommended Posts

After waking up and finding the water pipes frozen, so no water in the house, I decided to ride up to Chattanooga (enough of sitting around the house).

Looked around Golfsmith at golf bags I liked but didn't buy, had a Philly cheese steak downtown, had a chocolate frozen yogurt, and wished it had been warm enough for a round at Moccasin Bend as I drove past.

Saturday is supposed to be warm enough to play but also supposed to rain.

Water pipes can freeze in Alabama?


That's funny. Oh yeah. The cold just usually doesn't last as long. It usually gets below 0 about once a year for a few days but I've seen well below 0 several times. Record here is -25.

When I moved to Missouri years ago my friends were surprised that I knew how to snow ski, but there's a short slope with a pull lift a couple of miles away.

Hmmm. Now that I'm thinking about it, I may go skiing tomorrow.

I never would have thought that it got anywhere near 0, much less below or a record low of -25.

Sorry about the pipes.  Hope it's not too much of a pain.

What else is there to do? I've bought new irons, wedges, putter, hats, hybrids and the list goes on.......

Cold weather and lack of golf over time will certainly trigger the buying impulses of the devoted club ho. I knew a business associate that would go out on lunch break just about every day in winter to a local golf shop to buy, sell and trade clubs. Had a collection of clubs that could only have been the result of some kind of mental addiction. Probably more common than the public is aware of.....

Below zero last 2 mornings.     Half the city is in a power outage right now ... I'm one of the lucky ones - still have electric.   There's gonna be some mighty frosty souls for those with electric heat if this goes on into the night (and a lot of broken water pipes / basement flooding).

I played Bethpage Green earlier this year on a beautiful November day when it was like in the 60's.  Had never played any of the Bethpage courses before.  Really enjoyed it even though I put up an awful number...even for me.

Haven't played the other two.

I have only played the green course once. I too put a monster #. From how I understand it the yellow being the easier of the 4 courses followed by blue than green red and of course the Black course.

Yeah, I set up a tee time with a friend and they offered some of the other courses but would have had to wait 40 minutes and we didn't want to do that.

Def going to play a few rounds down once the season begins again.

Yellow and blue get the most play. Next season is going to be rough. Single walker and will need to get to Bethpage early otherwise waits are insane. That place is a zoo on Saturday and Sundays during the season. I don't play there too much because of that. But most courses are like that here on LI durin the season. Late October thru as much winter as allowed to play is my favorite time to play. If open courses are empty and a bit friendly on the wallet.

Yeah, I just moved to Albany from Queens last Feb. and whereas I've found courses to play down there, up here it's my understanding there are only two courses that are open.

Explain heated driving ranges to me? I'm assuming some sort of propane heaters in the hitting bays, but how do they keep the snow off the range so they can collect balls?

Gas heaters at the heated that I've worked at. If the ground is froze, pick as normal, but when it starts to thaw it gets more tricky and tedious. A lot of hand picking goes on.

    • Day 512: Did the same takeaway/ backswing priority piece work, recentering / flow work, and some Justin Rose drills. Then hit foam balls with driver to work on concepts with a longer club.
    • Adding tackling to golf could make things interesting...
    • Rugby League (not Rugby, that means Rugby Union) isn't really like American Football, but it is a faster and tougher game and some of the players only wear very light padding. Most wear none. Do not mistake "Rugby" for Rugby League. My point is that if you think he's talking about tackling and you look up Rugby you'll see Rugby Union, which is a running and passing game. They don't tackle like in League. I'm not making a comment about American Football. I love it.   
    • No - but if you said that the article said that the vaccine rather than the virus caused these issues it would be shared around the vaccine skeptics within seconds. None of them would read it and it would definitely qualify as "research".
    • Day 79.  Got video today, I have to process to upload to evolvr.  I did a wall drill on video and also did an attempt at a slow swing with a 6-iron on video;  did some practice with each prior to filming.
