Nice enough to golf


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- March 13th, not a day you typically think about hitting the links,  but that's just what some golfers were doing as warm temperatures take over the region.

Last year soldiers field did not open until the end of march and even at that the greens were very soggy from all of the snow melting and some of the ground was still frozen.

Completely different story today, I am told the greens out here are actually performing pretty well and as for the golfers.

"It's absolutely super. I feel like I'm in Orlando. I mean it's unreal," said Ron Nelson

"It's great though, this is unbelievable, you know we keep thinking winter was kind of slow and warm and we keep thinking when's the snow going to hit and here we're golfing so it's pretty cool,"  said Brad Dewerd

"I know kind of when we start every year and the world record is the 24th so this is the best its ever been or the earliest as far as I know and I'm 63," said Nelson
