Lengthening days.  They're finally long enough I can leave work @ 4:45 and walk 4-5 holes.  But the big one:  come Sunday morning -- start of Daylight Savings!!  Then, at least 12-13 holes after work,

I enjoy the lights, decorations, better spirits, music, college bowl games, my family, the gifts, and the food.  By January 7th I am ready for Spring.

This time of the year gives me the excuse to buy golf stuff...I say to myself..is Christmas!...lol. $1k later...I start feeling buying remorse. 

I buy stuff this time of year too. This year I've been smart and avoided buying a bunch of clubs.

Turkey with all the trimmings, and the smile on my son's face when he opens his presents (also my youngest's 1st christmas)

Holy cow! You just pushed one of my buttons! I swear I could eat roast turkey, dressing, and gravy every day!

However, I spotted this thread on March 3, so I will say this. It's March, the "cruelest" month in some folks estimation since it's the transition from Winter to Spring. But MLB teams are in Spring training, and the Sun is higher in the sky than it's been for quite a while. Enough so that you can actually feel the heat in the sunlight now!

At this time of year, on a sunny day I like nothing better than going outside, closing my eyes, and turning my face towards the Sun feeling the warmth on my face.

Yup, we just crossed over 12 hours of daylight here in Michigan. A few weeks until the official handicap season opens. A lot of anticipation.

The Masters baby!

:banana:

One of the things I love about the Masters is how green and beautiful the course is. Here in MA, everything still is brown and dormant.

Well, it's now June 2, and I just got my garden planted! Can't wait for those home grown tomatoes! I will not buy a tomato in a grocery store any more. They taste like crap! So, tomatoes become a seasonal delicacy for me. That's OK. I'd rather eat good!

My favorite thing about June is obviously watching my hockey team play hockey. :-)

That happens so much, it's not special anymore!

I like being able to hang around inside with a window open or the AC on just very slightly, with sunlight pouring in the windows.

Plus, it's almost tomato and corn season!

    • Day 154.  I practiced the "snapping sticks" quarantine drill a bit more today, both with the alignment stick and my 6-iron (I seem to feel it more in my right arm than my left, although once I've gone for 30 seconds, I can start to feel it in my core).  I also hit a dozen full swing shots with my 6-iron (indoors, off a mat, etc), the usual practice routine for them, focusing on takeaway and position at the end of the backswing.
    • I remember reviewing the changes in late 2018 when they were announced, but early 2019 was a stressful and difficult part of my outside-of-golf life, so I didn't get a lot of chance to reinforce it (I also ended up not following through on a golf-related commitment I had hoped to keep during that period, this is definitely my biggest regret from that part of my life).  And my approach to bunkers has long been to just not touch anything (it helps that I'm not in bunkers that much -- something like one shot every other round or so), so the difference hasn't been important to me.
    • I recently joined up here. I posted a short intro if you'd like to know just a little about me.  In my journey with golf, I'm at the stage where I am introducing golf to a 6th grader and 3rd grader. We are starting out with some range time and a couple of rounds on a par 3 course nearby. I'd really like to hear your stories about golfing with kids. My oldest is an over-achiever, she holds herself to very high standards and she's already shown the ability to be frustrated by the game. My youngest is more of a free spirit, and funny enough, you can see it in their swings. My oldest has a conservative "make sure to get contact" swing, and my youngest swings with wild abandon.  If you have advice on club brands or how to set up a bag for kids, especially with how they are growing like weeds, that would be cool too. 
    • Oh boy... The camera work is awful on the first tee. These guys are trying to zoom in on the ball while its flying all you see is sky and a hazy white dot. When the ball lands they zoom even further and you dont even know where the tee shot ended up.   
    • I found my old Classic unit and opened it up. The battery/plug is the same as the original one in my Live unit.
