Depression! I hate the cold. Ya you can still play in 20 degree weather with high wind and snow but who the hell wants to do that.

Not me playa, Im still tryin to get warm from the StoneCold Tourney.
Ahhh an honest man...Not some of these people going on about how the cold toughens you up! Heck when it's in the 50's I consider that almost to cold. I couldn't or wouldn't dig playing in the 20's
play all winter long, whatever snow. gotta go gotta throw.
Yeah I hear you loud and clear from northern Utah. I have been changing the way I think about playing during the winter. If I hold myself to the same standard as I would on a blue bird day, I just get frustrated. We do a lot of charity events throughout the winter months, everybody seems to take those a lot less seriously and the atmosphere is great.
Well Joe,
Maybe you are depressed BECAUSE you are cooped up. Could it be that fresh air and exercise would help out your mood?

No heat, no humidity, now bugs, no wait to tee off on hole one (or backups anywhere else) and all you need to do to take advantage of these benefits is acclimate to the weather and dress properly.

If you limit your game to perfect weather.... you limit your game.
Well said mark...
I would like to invite any and all Michigan players to comeout to any of the winter leagues and link up with some die hards that fear no weather.. you will notice that come summer time and you shed all the extra layers that your game will be greatly improved..

One of the main reasons IMO that cold climate players are as good as they are is that we go out in the worst to become the best.
me! winter for me just means no run up, it becomes a walk up.

also the greatest thing about winter golf for me....besides no one else on the course......... im trying to lose some weight for my buddys wedding this year so just being outside in the cold i burn 2 to 4 times more calories then being inside, then when you add stomping and in a bunch of snow with gear on i can burn as many calories as if i went the gym and sprinted for a hour. and discing, even in the winter, is way better then running in a gym.
It's cold down here in Sunny Florida, freaky.
Played yesterday, what a great time.
Bundled up, even wore bicycle gloves (no fingers). Took the one off to putt.
I was hitting them, made it even more enjoyable.
The disc flies differently with less humidity in the air.
The discs skipped nicely on the packed grass, yes it now frosts here at night, brrrrrrrr.
Can't wait to do it again.
No humidity, No bugs, Not a lot of people on the course.
Clean air.
Had a great time.
If it's really cold, play when the sun is highest.
9 am rounds in the snow to beat the coming blizzard, finished 18 holes over an hour ago myself.
I saw ice today,now I remember why I moved to Florida.
Doss, Santa Cruz CA
Climo, FL
Jenkins, Springfield, OR. Wins big once he moved there
All places have mellow climates (minus Fl humidity) year round...Hmmmmm
