Winter Depression Thread

I was having coffee in the kitchen this morning when I get a text from my buddy asking if I wanted to go play! I called him back and told him that of course I want to play, but it makes no sense. Went pheasant hunting yesterday afternoon once the rain lightened up, and it was an absolute quagmire! The ground is saturated, and there's nowhere for the water to go. 

I'd reconsider if we'd get an extended dry spell, but it doesn't look like that's in the cards for us. They're calling for more rain tomorrow, and it's opening day of deer season. I don't think I'll go out.

Hauled the bag out of the basement Sunday.  After finishing the yard clean-up I went over to Fox Hills, my "winter home."  The course is seriously soggy but playable if one moves laterally out of the really wet areas.  Almost no wind and 45 degrees makes for a nice walk.

Everything is white today.  Bag is going back into the basement.

Played yesterday. Course was very wet, but completely playable. Lots of people out (it's NYC after all), but we got out first and finish in 3 hours. Hoping for a few more decent weekends before snow shuts things down.

I am suppose to be back in CO next weekend, but the forecast isn't looking too good.  Hopefully, I can get a few rounds in before the real snow starts.

As hard as the golf bug bit me this year, I can't be depressed with winter. My first sport love is ice hockey and so from mid Sept to the end of Mar, I get to play nets 4-6 times per week ( my goal is to deny yours) and the great thing about being a goalie is goalies don't pay to play. By not having to pay saves me $1600- $200/yr and most of the savings will go into golf come spring.

Not sure if this is a deal in your area, but the PGA Superstore gave me a $25 gift card when I renewed the annual practice plan which lets you practice indoors and is $150. Best winter deal I ever bought. Will apply gift card to a box of balls.

hasn't been especially cold down here,. just wet. We get these fronts  that come through and  drop the temperature into the low 40's. Before the temperature drops, it rains,. sometimes for 2 days. Can't even hit range balls. Poo Yi !

I had the weirdest dream the other night. I was playing golf...IN MY HOUSE!! And with real clubs and balls, not nerf balls. The damage I was doing was quite extensive! One shot that stuck with me was trying to play a delicate chip shot to the dining room window sill! The ball rolled under a chair, and after I moved the chair I couldn't find it. I had to take a penalty!

Good grief! I think I'm going stir crazy and we're still a couple days short of the Solstice. Maybe I should go buy a "dream book" and see what lottery numbers I should play.

Mr. Bowman... I love it!  What a great dream... you must have had golf on the mind when you went to bed.  I expect to see an article soon in Golf Magazine outlining how to chip to a window sill.  Probably authored by Phil Mickelson.

I thought I'd post here since we got down to 61 today. A bit chilly. But I'm fighting through it.
