Most other years, Minnesota's golfers have already played a few rounds by this time. Thankfully, there's a new place in Eden Prairie to work on your golf game - no matter the weather.
The Minnesota Golf Academy opened a couple months ago.
The state-of-the-art facility has putting greens, sand traps and simulators.
They also have PGA teaching pros on hand.
Many high school and college golf teams have been using the Academy to practice while they - and golfers statewide - wait for the delayed spring thaw to allow golfers to finally get outside for the real thing.
