Each year when October rolls around, I'm usually feeling a sense desperation as our golf season in Minnesota is coming to an end. Some years I might find myself playing into early November (and there was that one time in December!), but sometimes Mother Nature closes the window of opportunity sooner rather than later. This year has been a great Fall in northern MN and just yesterday I made a quick road trip to Giants Ridge...it's usually a goal to get there at least once a season, but it took me until yesterday to find the time to go. And it was so worth it!!
The September/October time of year is also the ending/beginning of the PGA Tour season. I'm still not sure I've accepted this new "wrap around" season, but I think it's here to stay. I'm not sure it's a whole lot different than it was before other than the events in the fall now count towards FedEx cup points for next year, which helps what used to be the fall finish for those players trying to get into the Top 125 and keep their card for next year. (If you know me you can guess I'm still a bit bitter about the loss of Q-school and the Fall season, but I'll save that for another day!)
I love golf and I love to write, so I can't think of anything better than having a happy place like this to write about golf to my heart's content. Thanks for joining me!
