Summer Golf Reading for 2013

For those of us living in the Midwest, our 2013 golf season opened with a deluge of rain and cold weather. March found most of our golf courses unable to open, frustrating golfers anxious to get on the links for a new season of golf. In 2012, my local course had more than a thousand rounds played during March. This year, the course was unable to accommodate even one round. Of course, the frustration level increases for golfers as they anticipate a new season --- a season that will be the year to bring great improvement. Golf is a game of hope and optimism.
