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.

Taylormade Jetspeed driver and Speedblade irons. My old set was a bargain basement Wilson set that I bought 12+ years ago when I first started playing.

Nice.

You'll have to let us know how you do with them when you play with them in March.

Definitely. Can't wait. Should be a big difference from what I was using. My "woods"were really made of wood...

The good news is I got out of Boston just before the storm.  We got 30 inches.  Luckily my son is home from college and helped out tremendously.  I headed south to play golf in the Orlando/Cocoa Beach area.

The bad news is I hurt my right forearm in the middle of the third round.  I strapped it up tight for the last round but it was painful the whole time.  Still had fun for the most part.

The coolest thing is we went on the fishing half day trip out of Cape Canaveral.  On the way in, dolphins rode the bow wave of the boat for about 10 minutes.  We were literally five feet above them.  That made the whole trip for me.

Hmm. Golf trip, avoided the snow, and dolphins? Hope you're planning something special for the Mrs., lest she greet you with a frying pan in hand. ;-)

Went to the pro shop the other day because they were having a hat sale, and discovered they've upgraded to a pretty nice simulator! Oh yeah, and...

VEGAS IN 6 DAYS!!!

I always take care of my wife!

Funny. :-) [quote name="tmac20" url="/t/71391/winter-depression-thread/1380#post_1101450"]Anybody else get like 3 feet of snow last night? :no:[/quote] We got 3" of snow, then pouring rain all night. Still raining right now and it's supposed to drop to single digits tonight. Nowhere for a lot of the water to run off because the storm drains are blocked from the last snow. Tomorrow morning's commute is going to be interesting.

They're warning about flash freezing conditions. Here are some pictures of the front of my house: You can't really tell from the first picture, but that water is about 2-3" deep in the road because the storm drain is blocked off. Everything is going to freeze solid overnight.

2-3 inches of ice!!!??!! Its gonna take awhile for the salt to melt that.

It's supposed to be 41 on Wednesday, so the sun might take care of a lot of it. It's just tomorrow that will be a mess. I'd rather it just snowed, because the rain/sleet icy conditions are awful. NJ weather is always interesting.

In the winter, I'd like nothing more than a nice 40° day with a torrential downpour of rain. Clears snow and ice right up. Hopefully we get one soon, but it's looking like snow and more snow here in NY.

    • My 2 cents is that if you have to add more than 1.5" or so, you are really in need of new shafts. As far as "orange dot length" is concerned, I always thought that the dot color only denoted lie angle, not length. For example, if I were to order Pings, I would want blue dot (1" upright) at standard length (I fall on the short end of standard range). I just came across an old post on here that give a good Ping chart. Don't comment in there unless it is really pertinent though, as it is quite an old thread.  
    • Looks closed to me, Steve.
    • Late to post, but... I managed a par on the 18th on Sunday.  Not a birdie, but now I've birdied or parred every hole on the course! 🙂  👍
    • Day 484: Did some feel rehearsals for my backswing priority piece. A bit of mirror work and noticed my takeaway was getting inside so did some “Matt Wolff- feel” rehearsals Then did some COVID-19 day-3, 4, 5 drills. Some slow 9-3 swings. Contact all over the place. Kind of at a loss for what the issue is right now. Glad I have a lesson tomorrow. 
    • Day 98 (14 Apr 21) - more mirror work with the modified stork exercise to keep the body from overshifting (note to self: harder to do at night w/tired body)...followed with lag putt drills to roll specific distances...ended with more time in front of the mirror using the putter as the pointer on the shoulder turn....
