Winter Depression Thread


Recommended Posts

I played Brigantine GC in AC this past Sunday...cart path only, and for the first time I saw they used mini pins !(flag sticks)   Fairways were terrible, they shouldn't have even been open to play, but I guess they were desperate for the money...I see some Monmouth county courses are opening this week(NJ) but now with the advent of possible snow on Friday, I'll see if they will shut it back down.

Thank goodness I found an indoor simulator that is open 24 hrs about a 1/2 hour from me. At least I can work on my swing.(Although shooting a 95 Sunday didn't show the fact that I have been swinging the clubs all winter.)..

We have a home in Brigantine and get out on The Links every so often (but less the past few years given the deteriorating conditions). You're correct about them needing the money as they're in bigtime trouble which has impacted any real upkeep. There's a battle underway about future ownership with the city and outside management companies (Ron Jaworski's golf management company in particular) making pitches. It's a shame because it can be a neat little track but there are way too many better options in the area worth the $$. A 24hr simulator? Nice! Where might that be?

FOILED !    After a week of above freezing temps & a lot of snow melt - was hoping to travel an hour or so south & play the weekend after this ... now they're calling for 3-5 inches of snow on Friday !!      I thought this horror of a winter was over ... apparently NOT :censored:

It won't be long. The warm days are starting to catch the cold days and will soon overtake them. It IS still winter until Friday.

I walked over the the public course next to my work yesterday at lunch and walked the rough along two holes. Ground is wet in places, probably still frozen down a few inches, most snow is gone but some is present in some low spots and shaded areas.

I also noticed that they must have been working on trees over the winter as several were cut down. Big trees a few feet in diameter at the base. Most removed trees were adjacent to the fairways but one or two were located somewhat in-play. Not sure if the course/county are planning on changing a few holes or not, I'll have to pay attention since I plan to play this course a few times this year after work.

The Old Man will just not relent here in the NE, the chill is getting colder again and the future looks ugly, losing faith in next weekend.

And yes it's still winter, but we've paid our dues this year, it's been a solid three months without any chance, enough already.

This is just plain wrong anymore. Mid-60's Tuesday, right back to the 30's by today and now 3-6" of snow tomorrow. UNCLE!!!

I like the Brig...just not in July when we have a 2 day tournament there...the GREEN HEADS are terrible !...

The 24 hr simulator is up aways from you..! exit 135 off the GSP...google the "GOLFCAVE"....I've been investing a lot of time there since Jan....Like I stated, the 95 was not indicative on how I swing the club....I worked all winter on not hooding my face and making a better back swing(fuller)...

Love spring and summer hate winter, you can't golf very good when every shot off the tee sounds like your using a steel pipe, and your ball gets plugged in the cold, white fuzz. And frankly after having a winter that has seen 11.5 feet of snow and 5 foot snow banks since January, I'm ready for warm weather so I can play some golf!

Cabin fever leads to thoughts of this:

One thing comes to mind...

    • Hi, Anyone out there playing with Ping Eye 2 irons still?  I have acquired a set and would like to deloft these clubs 2-3 deg.  What are your suggestions for final loft specs on these irons?
    • I have played with this push-out early then suck in collapse loopy move for so long, the Mylan coating on my brain pathways is like 40 years old veneer on hardwood.  I really need a few good rounds at some point with this move then I can get some trust and re-Mylan for good. I have literally been losing all context half way through the downswing and jump on the ball abandoning all trust. Scores are a bit comical but I understand where we need to go (I said 'we', hah). Need to survive the lows this year. Digging deep for patience.  
    • Kinda, but kinda the opposite too. If you push your hands "out" early, they'll "suck in" late and fold/collapse. If you just turn (ideally on a steeper angle with your shoulders), and lift, and fold barely… they'll be plenty wide and deep enough.  
    • Was without network on Friday/Saturday so was unable to change Koepka (missed cut) with Harris English (-8 and 80 points on Saturday) between round 2 and 3.   Pfffff! 
    • I have the M3 and the answer is no. You can hit just as wicked a slice with the slider set to "Draw" as you can hit a massive hook with it set to "Fade". (That's why I keep mine in the middle.) As others have said it's all about club head path and face angle at impact. At the big box golf stores, if you ask nicely, the may just give you a wrench. (At least at Golf Galaxy they did for me.) They have tons of them in the back.
