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?

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 🤷‍♂️.

    • My friend and I built me a set of tour cavity irons (4-pw) nearly 20yrs ago paired with rifle 6.0 shafts. As a 5 handicapper and 20yrs of trying 20 sets of different clubs, these tour cavity irons are the best. They’ve aged really well too. My only regret is I wish we would’ve built a 3 iron with my set, I’ve had a really difficult time trying to find one now. 
    • I don’t see that analogy working. People, like @iacas, who use GEARS to obtain information are hardly average people in the golf world. No one suggested average people should run out and get a GEARS  system for themselves. It’s a suggestion that fitters may be interested in this information in regards to lie angles and how they’re currently measured.
    • OMG. Your Sharpie test isn’t anywhere near as accurate as GEARS. And the friend has seen thousands and thousands of shots hit on GEARS.
    • Not saying the "average person" is buying the GEARS set up, the average person buys access to the technology that otherwise would be unavailable to them.  Here's an experiment. Go check the lie angle question that started this thread using GEARS, and then cross check those results with the sharpie check. See how the results compare. 
    • Interesting discussion. I’m not a good player by any stretch, but I do tend to pull my shorter clubs more often than my longer ones. I can’t remember the last time I pulled a well struck 4i, now that I think about it.
