I know how you feel. We get the occasional cold spell here in Orlando and I sometimes have to worry about whether I need to where long pants or if shorts are ok.

See, once the sun comes up, long pants can get too hot. But shorts can be too cold if the wind is blowing.

And don't even get me started on whether to put on the full sleeve pullover or the half sleeve.

Winter sucks!

It's supposed to be 31 here on Saturday and I'm thinking a quick 18 is more than possible.

Here is a chime from Arizona.  Only in the 60's all week.  Brrrrrrr!

I watch YT vlogs of guys in UK playing when it's in the 30's (F), rain, sleet, snow, 5 layers of clothes and playing some pretty good golf.  Get's in the 40's and I can't swing, ball goes nowhere, feels like a rock.  I don't know how they do it.  I don't mind the cold (I was a ski bum for 6 years), I just can't play (well) in those conditions.
In my case it's not a problem. I can't play well in any conditions :)

I should start a b!tch session thread about how the cost of golf goes up this time of year because of people getting away from the snow.

Does winter golf cost more in CA? Or is everything so damned expensive out there that it doesn't matter?

I think I'm starting to get golf withdrawal symptoms too with the way they jack up the greens fees around this time of year.

Even here in South Carolina the weather is taking its toll on golf days.  I gave up my club junkie addiction and used the $$$$$ to get a launch monitor and am building a sim in my garage.  Hope to have it finished by end of Dec.  Plan on using both practice range and golf sim courses.  I figure I will still use it in the summer for range work.  I hate going to the range when its  95 & humid.  I got a portable unit so I can also lug it to range.

I’ve lost a bit of my ‘mojo’ this fall and am looking forward to a break from the game.

I’ll recharge the batteries for my simulated round Saturday morning.  

Last week I shot 7 under at the Memorial and jarred a shot from 123 yards.   Delusional golf for the next 5 months is just what the mojo doctor ordered.

Not to mention the NCW set of irons that I’m waiting on.   I see a build with cool shafts, ferrules and girls in my future.

Time to heal the body and repair the psyche.

It’s costs about the same except there still less time to play due to twilight starting sooner. I’m in the Bay Area though, I think it might be slightly different in Southern California

While it is frustrating not playing there is an upside at my age. Rest will help all the little golf injuries incurred over the past 6 months. Left hip sore, left hand hurts with most swings, back is tired. Repetitive motion injuries that hopefully will improve with a few months off.

I'm too addicted to golf to stop playing on my volition, so I need the weather to make me stop. I use the 3 months of non-golf season to rest and work on getting back in shape for the coming season, as well as let the wife and daughter know that I still exist.

I'm usually ok, until I get a text from my FIL at his course in Florida rubbing it in. He's a member at an absolutely fantastic course (Old Marsh) in Palm Beach, which makes it even worse.

This month is the worst because the days are short. By the time I'm out of work, the sun's halfway down and I can't even get out to hit chips.

For me, it's excessive regripping, spending money on eBay, and drinking too many martinis to cope.

Usually I spend a bunch of money on clubs over the winter, but decided I'm just going to stick with 3w and hybrid replacement... already got my 3w. Golf season has been over where I live for nearly 2 months now, it's absolutely brutal.

Heading to San Diego in 2 weeks though!

Nothing changes in So Cal all year. Still jam packed freeways to get to the jammed pack courses.

My longest drive happened in summer a few years ago. Baked hard fairway on the 9th at Rye Hill. I think when the ball actually came to a rest it was 320 yards from the tee. Probably 50% roll knowing my drives back then. >60% fairway accuracy but rarely went more than 170 yards :)

I was hoping I'd break that record this year actually with our long, hot, dry summer but my driving was lousy. Didn't really recover until the weather had broken :(

It's supposed to be 31 here on Saturday and I'm thinking a quick 18 is more than possible.

It had been a long day by noon today. I saw the sun had peeked out, looked at the phone, it said it was above freezing (not much, but a little), the trees weren’t moving much........

Told my sales guy I’m leaving for a bit, grabbed the clubs and headed to the course (had to pay my bill anyway, so I had to go), ......forgot that we had snow the other day and it hadn’t all melted. Just enough on the ground to make it unplayable. So much for that��

We had snow 2 days after Thanksgiving and then last weekend rain that melted about 95% of the snow.  The temps have been pretty low so the fairways and greens will be really firm.  I'm thinking frozen fairways give me the chance to be GolfWRX long with the ball just rolling forever.

Yeah, but then VNutz will be WRX++ long!

Damn, wouldn't think someone in Tennessee would be having those issues! Haha we've played every weekend for the last 6 weeks straight except 2 weeks ago we couldn't get out. Luckily snows been coming down during the week and melting off by weekend... its still cold and a bit wet but has been nice extending the season. Hoping to travel down south over the winter to play if I can arrange it. Aside from that gonna be renting the sim at golf town a bunch over the winter to keep things working haha

Our friend VNutz is suffering from a bad case of Seasonal Affective Disorder and with temps in the low 30's only someone stupid committed would be playing.

I am all about swinging a wedge in the living room. Windows help me see what my swing is looking like. Then take some new thoughts to the range/course when available.

Also, putting over and over on the carpet. Just to get stroke flowing and starting lines right.
