Will focus on filming my swing indoors and waiting for March golf trip.

Bloody ceilings in the house are too low for that.

Best I can do is putt on the carpet in the garage or brave the elements and clobber snow balls to kingdom come. Might work better if I dug out my ice skates.

We're supposed to get 9-12" on Sunday. Oh well. I've got my net set up ready if it warms enough. I also bought a cheap mat for the gym at work it hit foam balls.

Sigh. Ducks are foraging on the driving range...

 

Cry me a river Mr. Southern California.  😉 You can use the rain anyway.

No snow in NYC, but nasty, rainy day. Temps set to plummet. Salt spreaders going wild. Time to break out the Musher's Secret for the dog.

Low ceilings? I don't know what you're talking about.

Opted to practice outside today instead of inside tomorrow. Availability of practice times indoors filling up quickly where I am. Wondering if that's the New Year resolution people, or more people knowing about the practice facility, or something that I just didn't notice last year.

Snow on the ground and more snow expected tonight and tomorrow.

Sigh!  No golf for a while.

I am out there playing unless it is -30 or worse.

The record low temperature in Bellingham is -2 f  or -19 c (per Wikipedia).  When was the last time you played in -29 weather and where was it?

Look to the left at my icon photo. That was -40 degrees. I was being facetious. 😁

This morning really sucked.  The entire car was frozen in a block of ice. Took 30 minutes extra just to get the thing on thawed and on the road. I also would have thought the city could have made better use of all that tax money I pay them and gotten the roads better sorted.

But, I'm feeling optimistic.

Generally, in this area, we'll get one or two mornings a year where the air temperature will be below zero. The odds of this happening again are pretty low. It's just going to get warmer from here.

Wow, really strong winds today. Despite the meager 14mph report, the balls are moving 20 degrees to 40 degrees left on my home range... 🤪😂🤪

Feels more like 40mph gusts...

Well.  I guess I will go snowboarding this weekend since the courses will likely to be closed due to snow.

More snow expected tomorrow.  Looks like January is a total bust for golf.  On the other hand, nice new power for snowboarding.

I upgraded my irons, added a 3 hybrid, and bought a new driver for Christmas.  Still haven't been able to play a round with them.  I don't know why I'm living in St. Louis 😞

    • Yea, I really thought Sean McVay was the guy who would crack the code too, so it definitely surprised me when he just didn't adjust. I hope he learned something, but I guess we'll have to see next year how his coaching tendencies change, if at all. The three points they ended up scoring was certainly a shocker. I was confident that the under would come through, but 16 total points was pretty shocking to me. 
    • I am incline to believe that fake balls are best for practicing swing mechanics. That one should not rely on the flight of these plastic/foam balls for swing results. Especially when used with longer swings.  I have a box of Taylor Made foam balls I sometimes use. They are quite safe to use indoors. Outdoors  they work ok, as long as there is no wind.  However, my favorite practice "fake" balls are those "Birdie Balls". The ones that look like a short piece of pvc pipe. (they are NOT made out of pvc). They seem to mimic ball flights better than the plastic/foam balls, while still being extremely range limited. I also believe these birdie balls are more suited for outdoor use. Obviously a draw back is you can't putt with them. 
    • They taste good, but are way too greasy, to the point of sogginess.  I’ve always said that McDonald’s is the gold standard in fries. Looks like I’m not the only one…
    • I just saw the Golf Channel's tribute to "Gene the Machine". I was truly fortunate enough to watch him play Billy Casper in an 18 hole Monday playoff at the 1970 Masters. I was a sophomore in college and our biology professor gave a friend and me his tickets (and permission to cut his class). It was my first time to actually see an actual tournament round having only attended practice rounds while in high school. There wasn't much drama as Casper won 69 to 74. There weren't many patrons in attendance and it was a very intimate setting to watch two great players up close and personal. I don't remember much about how they played except that Casper hit a screaming hook into the trees on number 2. As a hooker myself I received some solace in seeing a touring pro do that and still make par. Also, it was the last 18 hole playoff in Masters history. The 1979 Masters ending in a tie was decided by a sudden death playoff won on #11 (the second playoff hole) by Fuzzy Zoeller over Ed Sneed and Tom Watson. Because of that experience I've always been fond of both Littler and Casper.
