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 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.
Had a great time.
If it's really cold, play when the sun is highest.
One of the most hopeful sights is seeing someone pushing a stroller on the course. It makes me feel as though I'll still get to play even with kids. Hopefully, seeing as this 2 month old boy of ours is gonna be discin alot if we're hanging out.
