Week Before Final Four the Perfect Time for Golf

March Madness really slows down between the Regional Finals and the Final Four games, so, with time on your hands and no hoops on the tube (except for the NIT, but who really wants to watch the battle for #69?), warming temperatures and sunny days make it the perfect time to get a head start on your golf game.

If you're like most guys and gals, the clubs have been neatly tucked away in the garage or breezeway, just sitting there, patiently awaiting a chance to get out to the links.

Before you had out to your favorite course, it pays to check the contents of the bag in advance, making sure you've got all the necessities, from clubs (probably could use a good wash), golf balls, tees, glove, shoes, and any other necessities.

Since many amateur golfers - from duffers to 5-handicappers - won't be hitting the links for a few more weeks, most courses will be pretty desolate, which offers the opportunity to play more than just one ball per hole, so, to take maximum advantage of your practice rounds, a small investment in some premium golf balls might not be a bad idea.

There are deals online and your pro shop may have some specials. Nothing like some new balls to get your golf game moving in the right direction.
