I still manage to average playing two to three times a week here. But, when the weather gets bad for more than four of five days I get a little stir crazy. Last week it rained almost every day, so I spent more time on THP than usual. When I feel the need, I go down to my local PGA Superstore and fondle the hardware.
But, I lived for years in Michigan, so I can relate to what you're going through.
Its been just a tad bit silly here in Virginia. Playing tomorrow afternoon and its supposed to be 60* and 66* Wednesday. If it was the usual 30* I would watch golf channel and surf on THP, hit up GG or GS and ponder.
Even though it's been pretty cold, we've not had much snow here in Idaho this year, so I've only missed 2 days golfing the whole month of Jan. If we can stomach the wind and near freezing conditions, we can usually get out. Some Winters, this would not be the case. Odd year this year, so I haven't played as much X-Box....
Just when I thought I had at least gotten over the "i want to buy a bunch of golf stuff now" winter bug, my uncle calls me to let me know he just bought a new driver. Sometimes, it's like an alcoholic hanging out in a bar, the temptation is just too big.
The winter here in Ohio hasn't been too bad this year. Albeit, it's still bad enough to keep a brother from hitting the links. So, in the interim, I have a sheet hung in my basement to hit the Almost Golf balls into. It's not ideal, but it keeps the swing loose.
Visit the sister in the Abu Dhabi. Flying back tonight (to Denmark, brrr). Went all in and did 9 holes in the morning, then a nice brunch followed by a 3h range session. Finished off with 18 holes in the afternoon. My fingers are blistered, and I'm sure my legs won't appreciate it on the flight back!
Should be enough to see me through winter without getting too depressed I hope.
Im not really sure what I would do if I couldnt play golf during the middle of winter. I am a huge fan of my Christmas-Eve golf with the Family. We have been doing it for years now and it has become quite the tradition for us.
Almost every Christmas there is snow on the ground and around 40* (usually colder) here in Colorado. That's the one thing I miss about living in Houston. Year round golf in at least 50* weather or more.
