Walk (ski/snowshoe) your favorite course in the snow and start figuring out where your new, longer drives will be landing. Then begin imagining which shorter clubs you'll be hitting into the green.

Nice thought, but they got the course locked tight until March.

Kind of had a bit of that this fall when stuff finally started clicking into place. Remember being giddy hitting an 8I on our long par-4 9th hole.

Going to use some stimulus for the range membership next year, so I'll be imagining some really crazy drives until then when the inevitable reality reintroduces itself.

Florida bound on Saturday, woo hoo!  Getting away form the crappy weather.  Going to be playing lots of golf. 

I haven't shanked a ball in months.

That's it Gator & Spackler!!! I'm gonna buy a 2004 Buick LaSabre and drive it down to Florida, find out where and when you play golf, make sure I get ahead of you in traffic with my Michigan plate

My wife and I walk local courses in the off season.  We gave up doing that, however, if there is more than an inch or two of snow on the ground.  Walking in snow can be tough.

Where are you finding snow?

We're getting a little bit in Troy, OH right now. Not sticking yet, but that should turn over in an hour or two. Nothing massive but not golf weather and not really great walking weather either. Felt ok in the garage. Got out there and that breeze at the top of the hill was all it took to make it a 45 minute walk instead of an hour-and-a-half.

If I drive 51 miles east I will find 10 to 12 feet of snow.

Touche'.     I should have been specific.   We have a mix of green grass and enough snow to hide some.

A few years ago I timed it just right and I went skiing in the morning and played golf in the afternoon.

Everywhere in the Ann Arbor area has about an inch covering gassy surfaces.

I wanted to play over the weekend but my hands just can't take the cold. C'mon spring! Or just a 45+ degree day.

I played on Sunday when it was 28 *F.  It was nice as most people stayed home. 

But now, it is snowing.  Ugh.  I am hoping it melts before my Saturday's tee time.

You'd better buy some leggings for the girl on the motorcycle...

There comes a point in each winter where I get a bit crazy. Not sure I'm 28-degrees crazy yet, but 38 with light rain suddenly sounds like a possibility.

    • A competition is set up as a series of knockout rounds but each game is played as a 'match' using strokeplay counting (ie the winner is the one with the lowest net score). Should each game/'match' be treated as a 2 man field strokeplay competition or should each player record their score as a general play score?
    • A bit of foul language, but I don't think that bothers anybody in here:    
    • I'm playing 9 holes today. Right now is is pure sun, 48* temp, and gentle breeze. I have to see how my new clubs like it on a golf course!
    • I can't speak to this condition, but I had hand surgery last summer to reattach 2 tendons in my left pinkie. Some more general thoughts from me first, and then I'll talk about my experience if you'd like. If you opt to have hand surgery, make sure you discuss the recovery process with your hand surgeon. The healing process is easy, and hand surgery is not as invasive as most other surgeries (although it looks like this surgery is way more invasive than what I had). I had basically no pain after surgery. The bitch is the physical therapy. Make sure you talk to your doctor about what physical therapy will look like for you after the surgery. Also make sure you have a hand surgeon, not any old orthopedic surgeon. Hand surgeons are way more qualified and skilled than a regular orthopedic surgeon. Finally, ask how long it will take before you can use your hand for normal activities again.  I'm basically back to normal in my pinkie and hand now, but it was a pretty intense process. I started physical therapy 2 weeks after my surgery. From 2 weeks until about 4 months after surgery, I saw a hand therapist every 2 weeks. 6 weeks after my surgery, the physical therapy got very intense. At that point, I started doing exercises on my finger every hour I was awake. I was also doing about an hour of scar massage every day to break up the scar tissue. It's been about 6 months on, and I'm still doing exercises almost every hour, trying to get that last little bit of movement back. Note that I had to learn to move my pinkie again, and I had to break through a bunch of scar tissue to get the tendon to be supple again. After 6 weeks, I was allowed to do most things, but I didn't get the okay to golf until 3 months after the surgery. I had to use dictation software at work because I could only type with one hand for a while. I couldn't really cook or, the worst part, hold my baby for 6 weeks.  The surgery itself was simple and healing was fast. Like I said, I had basically no pain. My incision was only about 1/3 of the way down my palm, though. They removed my stitches 2 weeks after the surgery without any problems. The scar is not very noticeable. Sadly, haha. I should get a better scar out of all this at least! I do not regret the decision to have surgery, because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to move my pinkie. Looking back, I wish I knew more about the recovery process in advance, because that was the most arduous part.
