Lengthening days.  They're finally long enough I can leave work @ 4:45 and walk 4-5 holes.  But the big one:  come Sunday morning -- start of Daylight Savings!!  Then, at least 12-13 holes after work,

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!

Mornings in the high 30s or low 40s keep everyone away, so I can play fast.

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.

    • I'm on the side that there are some people that are overly sensitive.  We should not re write history because "it offends me".  It is history.  It has happened.  It is there for us to learn from and hopefully never make the mistake again.  Hopefully some things DO offend you.  Then you are less likely to make the same mistake.

    • That’s quite an accomplishment.😳
    • Florida is a great state if you go play around Orlando. Its centered, and you got a few hours to each coast. Also, the three months that include the first month of off-season rates in Florida will take some sting of the price. Some greens fees get cut in half down in Florida. 
    • To be clear, your relief is based on the shot you would have hit if the obstruction was not there.  The quote from the Definition of Nearest Point of Complete Relief is: Once you take proper relief, you may use any club and attempt any shot that you want to, regardless of the club you used to determine the NPCR.  As an example, an appropriate shot from the ball's position on a cart path may have been a chip-out sideways to the fairway, so my Reference Point for relief would be the closest spot from which I could make that sideways shot, without interference from the cart path.  Once I've taken relief, I could be in a spot where I can hit 3-wood towards the green, and that's perfectly acceptable to do.
