The annual rite of spring – the first round of golf – is a priority for many who love the game. Last Saturday’s weather was reminiscent of a day in the Florida sunshine instead of mid-April in Wisconsin, and that was just fine for those who had tee times on area courses. The best part of playing this early in the season is the chance to work the kinks out of your game, plus the mostly forgiving nature of those in your foursome, because quite frankly, they’re probably not quite up to par yet either. (No pun intended!) We might not be hitting it long and straight yet, but there’s no denying that great feeling of enjoying a morning or afternoon round of golf in the fresh air. Fore!
