Winter Depression Thread


Recommended Posts

I'm playing Tuesday, 30* to 40*. I know not a record setter, but the wind could be anywhere from a light breeze to ridiculous... down at the shore. Then over the holiday's, we're down  in North Carolina. Who knows? 30's to 70's. Then we're back in Ct. and it's at the indoor place until spring. ~Tom B.

Wish there was an indoor place here. Only option is a crappy simulator at the pro shop.

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.

Top Golf is opening in Auburn Hills, MI in the near future.   It beats sitting in front of a television...or working.

Played what I imagine will be the last round of 2013 on 12/4.  After a period of freezing temperatures we had a brief warm up to 50 degrees or so.  There is often the odd period in mid-winter when we have a 3-4 day period of unusually warm weather and once a decade or so we have a winter like 2011-2012.  Typically, however, there is little golf played in SE Michigan until March.

Time to start planning a trip south to warmer climes.

Had our first snow fall yesterday so I"m guessing that's a sign that its time to put the clubs away. Can't complain, though, we've had a pretty mild fall here so I had the chance to play a lot more in November then I was expecting.

Finally broke down and gave the clubs a really good cleaning and put them away for winter. :( Will keep the practice clubs in the car for any unseasonably warm days though.

Keep a couple of golf balls in your pocket and they don't break.

Seriously...pocket warming isn't enough.   I've shattered enough balls over the years to know better.  Modern balls really get brittle....

Suppose to be in the 50's today.  Hopefully all the snow will be gone by the end of the day, so I can play either tomorrow or on the weekend.

You have a crap attitude.

Try switching balls every hole, or do what it takes to keep the ball at a decent temperature

If that doesn't work, keep your balls closer to your balls.   That'd work. ;-)

Winter in Ohio is bad enough, but my place of business closed it's doors 2 weeks ago so now I'm out of a job too. Pass the pistol please. :-( Anybody up for a swim? My pool's there somewhere.

Been there. Two different times and 18 years apart I lost really good jobs that I thought would be there until retirement.

Things usually work out OK and sometimes for the best.

Good luck.

Thanks. I do have an interview on Wednesday.

Any other fellow NC'inians on the board? Guess we have it pretty decent...winter weather on any given day can be from 20s-70s...its pretty insane how up and down it can be in a weeks timeframe. Earlier this week was 40s, this weekend is 70s, then early next week back to 40s lol! I have already played 4 times this month. With work during the week my only options are Saturday and Sunday (as im sure is the same w a lot of you) so I just sit up all night and pray those "warmer" days happen on the weekend. The real kick in the N*$'s is when its high 60s and sunny on a wed while im slaving away in the office and the approaching weekend is 30s and raining.

How to beat the winter woes:

  • Attend your local golf shop's Christmas party. You might win something really cool in a raffle.
  • Hit the gym: Work on strengthening your hip flexors and increasing lower back flexibility so you can start quick in March.
  • Get  your income tax done by Valentine's Day so you can chart your "discretionary funds" for the coming year.
  • Act for the future! Don't waste time reading things like Winter Depression Thread :-(

    • I never use my handicap in any form other than a barometer of where my game is at in combination with all the other stats I keep. I never play in anything where MY handicap is used. My league keeps a "handicap" (that's far from a legit) and they do net scores simply because so many people in the league are terrible and its just for fun so they're trying to keep it competitive but when I am playing with my friend group its always gross and we're generally playing anything other than stroke play.  Favorite game is one I actually "invented" I call it Fu*k You. Alternate shot match play (or just match play if it's a two-some but alt shot is more fun) where you get 3 mulligans and 3 call backs per side. So if you hit a bad shot obviously you can use a mulligan but if your opponent hits a good shot you can go "fu*k you, hit it again" and they have to try to duplicate the shot. Both cannot happen from the same spot though, there's a max of 2 shots per spot if you use a mulligan your opponent cant recall the mulligan and if they recall your first shot you cant mulligan your second. Super fun and a lot of strategy involved. 
    • Billy, no, but there are sometimes snakes, although Ihaven't seen any personally but I've seen LOTS Of twisted sticks on the ground that have scared the crap out of me -- i don't know if that counts or not?  Also, there is a bat tree on the front nine in Lusaka, it is a huge tree and has enormous bats in it for half the year (then they migrate). So, that's cool!  
    • The above post is almost 13 years old.  I've now played in 48 states (all but Alaska and Hawaii) and 13 countries. Total number of courses played exceeds 750. My wife no longer thinks the golf ball collection from courses played is a good hobby.
    • So maybe I give the whetstone a try before getting Scott’s flux capacitor Ken Onion sharpener?
    • Any lions on the course? I have never visited Zambia, just see nature shows about the country, but have been to SA, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Kenya, and Tanzania, on safaris. Zambia sounds like a good safari destination.
