Here in the Northeast we've been blanketed by snow and the mercury hasn't risen above freezing temps for far too long... but golf is always on my mind and I'm optimistic that the big melt and Spring are just around the corner.
So this got me thinking... what do I love about opening a new dozen?
Right now, the quick answer is that opening that first dozen of Pro V1x's for the year will signal the official start of my 2014 season.
But for as long as I can remember, there is just a special feeling I have when there is a brand new box of golf balls in my hands and they are ready to go. It always means that there are endless shots in front of me and the moment I crack open the lid, take out the first sleeve, pull a golf ball, put my mark on it and tee it up... nothing else really matters except for the shot immediately ahead.
To this day, there is just a quiet calm for a split second. It's hard to explain but it really is a cool moment.
Anyway, that's my story... what about everyone else?
