Weekend Watch for March 1: Putting Controversy and Training with Chris Ownbey

Another Friday is upon us and another golf filled weekend is coming up. Well at least for us…not for Rory McIlroy…

With it being March 1 today that means that spring golf is just around the corner! While it may be a closer reality for you than me (it’s currently snowing…just flakes…but still) the countdown is on when all of us (especially us in the colder climates) can put all our offseason training to the first test of the year! It’s certainly an exciting time, but there’s still some offseason work to be done…

With that in mind, let’s get to the Weekend Watch:
