Winter Depression Thread


Recommended Posts

Warm weather in Pittsburgh, time to break out the under armour and play in 40 degree weather. Anything feels warm after the negatives we've had as of late


You must live in South Pittsburgh. Still a lot of snow in my part of the neighborhood, northeast of the 'Burgh. 50° weather all week, so maybe by Thursday the snow will be gone where I live and maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to get out the clubs. :-P

I love this game. :-D

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.

We received 6 inches of heavy wet snow Saturday.  I usually carry and walk 18 but because of the conditions, I hired a seasonal caddie.  I figured his local knowledge would help me in the tough condit

I made it out to Young's Dairy and hit some balls today. So nice to be out! I took the boy with me and he was hitting the Nike irons I got for him last year really well. As soon as he got home, he got his golf bag out of the shed and started going through it. I think the bug bit him pretty hard. On the way home, we stopped at the big lake and I hit some 4i shots, but the top of the water was already turning to slushy and the ball just died on impact.

About halfway between Pittsburgh and Greensburg. [quote name="dfreuter415" url="/t/71391/winter-depression-thread/1600_100#post_1113055"] You must live in South Pittsburgh.

First decent day in months here in NY, and the range was packed , every stall full and people waiting behind each, but I won't do that, I hate when people stand behind me while I practice so I just left, so much for golf not being a popular sport anymore though.

If there were no snow on the ground I bet the any open courses would have had players.

Rain is pummeling the last of the snow into submission. Then it's suppose to be clear the next two days and we ought to be in business.

We're supposed to get rain here tonight, then tomorrow's high is 60°.

Still going to be some time before we can go out, though. The ground is completely saturated.

Yep, I have a tee time for Sunday morning as well. Hoping to get in 9 on Saturday. Looks like it will be a really nice weekend. Hopefully we don't miss out on too many spring golfing weekends with snow this year. We've been lucky the past couple of years for that.

There is still 2 feet of snow on the ground here. :cry:

    • Thanks for your story. Seems like a realistic timeframe for me, too - as I read that in other posts as well. Maybe I am too optimistic to achieve that in only one year. I see. That's another factor which I will have to face. I broke 90 on my home course. I will probably get a reality check after I play more on other, perhaps more difficult courses. Thanks for your input! That is very interesting. I like the breakdown of what worked for you. My coach and I are working on a playbook for me and have set out specific goals to shave off strokes in particular areas of my weakness. Thanks for sharing your story.
    • I am just over 40 and I used to be quite athletic (2nd league pro in another sport). Besides my humble brag here, I feel the athletic stance and have the 4-5 hour cardio and mental focus - however my putting and driver technique cause me at around 10 extra strokes together. Yeah, I basically break 90 now: - OB driver shots, and barely over 200 yards - Above average iron shots (short and long) - making up for my driver; quite accurate and distances are by the book - 3-4 putts (messing up my score)
    • Thank you for the stats chart, that's worth gold! Yes, I have a golf coach and I keep a hand-written log in my scorebook. I am embarrassingly bad at putting (3-4) and my driver shot is not accurate and the distance is well below my age. However, my iron game is above average in terms of full swing mechanics, distance and accuracy - that was pretty much the only thing I practiced until I met my coach. The goal is to reduce by 5 putts in the short term. Thank you for your feedback. Yeah, Iooks like if I improve my putting and driving (among other aspects) to the same level as my iron skills I could be a more consistent 90s player. Come on! The putting struggle is real and tracked in my book.
    • Good luck! Let's ping each other by the end of the year again. I see that you that you also worked on your putting and short game. Good to have stretch-goals.  My golf coach guides me. Before I met him I practiced my iron game so much and completely neglected putting over that period. Genuinely, my iron game is quite accurate and the iron (short, long) distances I shoot are above average. However, I often end up doing 3-4 putts and my driver shot goes barely over 200 yards and is not accurate either. If I can shave some off those putts that could be 5-7 strokes right there.
    • Ugh. And I thought I was having a bad year.
