Winter Depression Thread


Recommended Posts

Since playing 9 holes on December 24, I've been able to hit balls outside once. Some of that is because of the weather, some of that is having two small kids. But it's been a frustrating couple of months for me, golf wise.  It's good to be heading into March and April, but those also tend to be the most frustrating months because it's warm but then snows. They are also two of our snowiest months. 

Anyways, I'm starting to get that itch again...

The amount of snowfall we have received this year is absolutely brutal.  I have not seen this much snow in years.  I haven't had much motivation to swing a club all winter, but I need to soon.

Guessing you had motivation to swing a snow shovel, though...

Yeah I'm thinking I've upped my BS by about 5mph this winter.  😉

Yes, March in Michigan can be a combination of two season often, 50-60 one day, and 20-30 another. When we get into March, although, you really can see spring coming. Days are longer, snow doesn't last long after it falls, temps getting golf-able. It's coming!

Getting ready for a 10:10 and it seems like ever body else has the same idea.  I hope I'm ahead of them...

(70s today, like the last couple days.)

 

We have had 8" of rain this year so far.  We played last week and I still can't believe we dodged it.

I know true golfing weather is here when I have to drive home from the golf course with the air-conditioning cranked up to full blast.

Still plenty of snow on the ground but its supposed to be fairly warm rest of the week then in the mid 40s all weekend so provided that melts most of it I may just have to go get a little muddy for a chance to see a ball fly through the air rather than into a net in a dimly lit garage lol

But, that day doesn't come in the Pacific Northwest until July 4th.

Oh, then I guess I owe you an apology. 
I thought you were experiencing such weather right now. 

Okay, you don't suck. Anyone else who gets to play golf all year round and never has to deal with shoveling loads of white death off their driveways sucks.

Yep, all Florida and Southern California golfers suck.

8 inches of snow for me last night. At least next week looks nice...

I hope so.

Last three weekends have been snowed out.  Getting tired of snowing on Wednesdays just in time to ruin my weekend tee times.

Our once mighty mountains of snow are now a pathetic, dirty, gray shell of their former selves. 

50 degrees this weekend. Going to have to see about a furlough of some kind and hit the range.

    • Day 72.  Got my evolvr priority piece, and it's a wall drill.   I don't even need a club and I can do it several times a day, as I did today.  I'll be doing this quite a bit over the coming days before I go back to incorporating it with a club in my hands for a full swing attempt. 
    • Day 505: Worked on backswing stuff, and added in some “Justin Rose” rehearsals. Hit foam balls at slow speeds.

    • I know this is off topic but wanted folk to know that if they install the 14.5 update it's important that they now get the 14.5.1 update which fixes some security issues with the 14.5 update: Apple releases critical iOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1 security updates The iOS and iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1 updates contain security patches along with an App Tracking Transparency fix. Thanks.  
    • I think you’re on the right track with this. You don’t want to lift the heel just for the sake of lifting it, but you also don’t want to forcibly keep it down, either. Some people can make a good turn without lifting the lead heel and some can’t. The heel itself is not the important part.
