Mother nature says no

Yeah, I think it's going to be much like last year where we don't see an open golf course until late March at the earliest. Not only does this nonsense have to melt, but the ground has to dry out enough that you don't take a bucketful of fairway up with every iron shot. Shame. February remains the only month that I haven't played golf in.

Gotta pray for heavy rain and temperatures on the plus side to beat some of this snow down.

2 weeks of 40 plus and some rain and we may just may get some golf in 2nd week of March here on LI. Right now the wind is wicked and temps are frigid.

Yeah, it's not letting up. No one's even picking up at driving ranges when I call to ask if they're open, haha. Last year they at least tried until they ran out of balls. Now it's too cold to even bother. The only heated one near me, Heartland, never seems to have those heaters on

It has been so cold I haven't even attempted to go to Heartland. Been at the PGASs to hit.

Yeah, I demoed a ton of drivers, irons, and hybrids yesterday at Golfsmith while I had some time to kill between doing college interviews for local kids.

My league starts the first week of April.  That would be April 2nd this year.  I don't see how all the snow (frozen solid at this point) will disappear by then.  Especially when we haven't seen a day anywhere CLOSE to normal (38* today) temperatures in a long, long time.

March is going to have to be in the 60s or better to melt the 2 feet of snow and ice by April.

Waaaah ... I don't like cold weather anymore.  Uncle.

It's been a brutal winter here.  You know it's cold when you get a brain freeze just from breathing.  I can't imagine my home course being playable by its scheduled open date of March 13.  Last year we couldn't get a recordable round in until mid April.

But you're USED to the 49 hours of summer you get a year.[/quote] Well I can always hope for at least 50, can't I? :)

So many people I know are in Madison and they rave about the beautiful summers there. And I hear you have great golf courses (and the US Open / PGA coming up!). Can't be that bad!

They are right. Our summers are great. I can still complain about winter though, can't I?

I've always said that there's nothing wrong with 12 months in Wisconsin.......as long as 6 could be in July, and 6 in October!

Thats about right....

Has been very playable in Virginia Beach/Williamsburg area (high 30s-low 50s) until this week. Seems like warming up again in the next few weeks. For all those who don't have to have absolute Florida weather it is 'only' 6-7 hours drive from NY City and probably the closest playable area close to northern states on the east coast!

    • I had the same issue with my left elbow, physiotherapist treatment worked for me to reduce the pain. Then strengthen the forearms and wrists, I'm stronger and pain free and enjoy hitting a golf ball, I looked online for golf stretch and strengthen exercises and now have a routine that helps me. Good luck...
    • I like the KBS out of the two you mentioned, but a lot of variables to consider so I think a trip to a professional fitter is the best suggestion I got...
    • I guess it's not extremely "unconventional" but I think many parts of the swing goes against some of the more "standard" teachings, or at least what I see on Youtube (forgive me I'm still relatively new to golf). Some of the differences of this upright/2-plane type of swing, according to the Jim Hardy 2-plane swing vs more "standard" golf teachings: Using more of the arms to generate power, rather than the body Having less depth at the top of the backswing Being slightly across-the-line at the top of the backswing Having a more open club face coming down Less body and hip openness at impact Of course not every "upright swinger/2-planer" adopts all of the above, but those are the things that Jim Hardy mentioned in his book and I'm trying to follow it as I don't have any other guide.
    • I don’t think a “2 Plane Swing” qualifies as “unconventional.” Please embed videos here: https://thesandtrap.com/how-to/embed-videos/
