March in FL is like the Friday night of the year.  All the bad stuff (Jan/Feb gloom and cold) is behind us and all the good stuff is either happening or in front of us.

Currently:

Freshwater fishing is on fire

Bay Hill

TPC

Longer days (can practice outside after work)

Springtime in general

Near future:

Masters

PGA

Inshore saltwater fishing will be on fire

Wow last post March? The spring into summer is my favorite time of the year. Yes the Masters, LPGA and PGA in full swing, Stanley Cup underway, College Baseball World Series, oh that nba soap opera has some good moments, just had the Monaco Grand Prix, just finished college D1 golf championships, Isle of Man TT (best race in the world) and now I am off work for 2 months. Golf games per week Up, miles on mountain bike Up, miles traveled Up. It’s the most wonderful time of year!

This time of year the spring peepers (small frogs) are awake and singing like crazy. The sound is almost deafening at night. It's great and let's us know that spring has sprung. Also - we're starting to see and hear the red-winged blackbirds. Another great song bird around here.

And don't overlook the blossoming of the plum trees.  Always catches me by surprise, but a true harbinger of Spring.

Good point. Our plum tree is just at the budding stage but should be good before too long. I also saw several Garter snakes sunning themselves out by one of our ponds. Probably hoping to catch some of them spring peepers!

When you get a random stretch of a few 50-55° days and the golf course opens for a little play. It's wet, it's soft, it's slow, it's a slog… and everyone couldn't be happier to be out there.

The start of:

  • college golf season
  • high school golf season
  • the NFL (though I care less every year)
  • the NHL season is just around the corner

I agree about the NFL. I still follow it. But every year its less and less of an event for me. I haven't even watched a SuperBowl for many years now. ... I know, crazy, huh? 

My favorite thing about this time of year is the golf courses are still open. They are, however, less crowded. Which I always think is weird, why wouldn't more people want to play when its a bit cooler? 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

1. NCAA Football

2. NFL and agree with Erik. But I’m Particularly curious to see how the most overrated QB ( Dak Prescott) performs now that’s he’s back.

NFL football, although like others I don’t watch as much or care as much about it as I used to. I don’t usually start watching the games until the weather turns cold because I’d rather be outside.

 

I follow the Atlanta Falcons and I used to watch every minute, but the last few years when they start playing poorly, I’ll do something else instead of wasting my time. I have a feeling I’ll be a lot of something else this season.

 

College football.

 

The World Series.

I like the cooler nights and warm days of September and October up here in New England. I like NFL football, but if its nice out, I will not be inside watching.

Also in New England and I work in the pro shop.  I am amazed this time of year when it’s 70-75 degrees, not a cloud or breath of wind on a Sunday and people refuse to play golf because of the New England Patriots.  Are u kidding me?  It’s like people are “playing in the game”.  I don’t understand it.  They’ll come out and play when it’s raining, call us when it’s snowing… but the nicest days of the year… if the Pats are on, no way.  I get people that come in bummed out that they can only play 9 because of the game being on.  Apparently the concept of DVR hasn’t caught on.

I tell people the day Bill Belichick gives up his golf time/ free time to watch ME work, then maybe we’ll think about giving up a beautiful Sunday to sit in the house and watch him work.

The fall is the only time of the year that I really miss living "up north". After Labor day the golf courses emptied out and they were usually in the best shape of the year. Cooler weather. I miss that. I used to take a yearly trip to the Gaylord area in Michigan every year (with about 8 guys)  in October and play golf all day and then watch football and drink beers all night. Then we all moved somewhere else and got married. That was pretty much then end of that 🤷‍♂️.

    • With the testing results thus far it looks like Red Bull really just decided, "Yeah, the zero pods were actually a good idea but Mercedes is just stupid." Both Newey and GP (Max's race engineer) were grinning ear to ear as Max went out and smashed every other time on the board by nearly a full second despite not being on a qualifying simulation run.

    • DAY 3:  Swing practice in the Golf Garage (52°, PW, 7i) for 30 minutes.  A little fall off from yesterday's gaudy numbers on the shot monitor, which I'm attributing to a little fatigue in the swing.  Post-op rehab continues! ☺️
    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.
