Golf In A Plague Year – March 21

Michigan is not on lockdown — yet — but weather conspired against me to prevent a golf outing over the last couple of days. Rain, cold and wind made me think my time was better spent indoors working on other projects. I don’t mind playing in the rain. I definitely will play in the cold. Wind is just another variable in the equation. Add the three together, however, and it adds up to hypothermia.

The Governing Boards of the OWGR and WWGR have decided that the rankings will be frozen at Week 11 (the week ending March 15th and 16th 2020) and will continue to monitor the impact of Coronavirus COVID-19.

An announcement about the resumption of each respective ranking will be made in due course.
