Two feet of snow

2 feet of snow

The UK is covered with two feet of snow. England has come to a more or less complete standstill and to be a golfer wanting to practice is not easy these days. I wonder what the young prospects are doing on a day like this? I spoke to Peter McEvoy the other day and we compared notes on what we used to do when the weather was really bad. Of course everything was better before, and all that… but, Peter said he had a tree at the driving range at Copt Heath where the rain and the snow could not get underneath. He stood under it and hit balls under the branches. He also cleared an area in the grass from where he could hit and continued to practice. I, on the other hand born and raised in a country where weather like this is the norm for 4 to 6 months of the year, remember how I hit balls into the garage. Yes, the ceiling in the garage was a bit too low so I could not stand inside and swing it normally. Had I done that I would have been fighting an even worse right to left shot than I am today… I put a matt outside in the snow therefore and had a net just inside the garage which I could hit into. Freezing cold outside of course but I could stand there for hours and hours.

I will never forget one of the first times I heard Kjell Enhager speak and he talked about changing perspectives; What are the benefits? Yes, what are the benefits of two feet of snow if you are a golfer???
