The video, which has garnered over 360,000 views on Facebook, features Jesse Roscoe, Superintendent of Ortonville (Minn.) Golf Course, dressed in a polo and shorts, taking a leisurely shot on the snow-covered golf course. “I just figured my friends would get a good laugh, and then it escalated,” said Roscoe.
In a video that has garnered more than 360,000 views on Facebook, Jesse Roscoe, Superintendent of Ortonville (Minn.) Golf Course, dressed in shorts and a lime-green polo, teed up on his golf course, which just happened to be covered in six inches of snow, the Minneapolis-based Star Tribune reported.
“Tough conditions out here today in MN but it’s Masters week so it’ll take a lot more than a little snow to keep me from enjoying a few rounds,” Roscoe wrote in his Facebook post.
See the video below:
“I just figured my friends would get a good laugh, and then it escalated,” said Roscoe.
The course has opened in March the past two years, and people are itching to get back on it. But with a half-foot of snow on the course and more possibly on the way, it could be weeks before that happens. Roscoe, 26, figured a funny video would help lighten people’s mood, the Star Tribune reported.
The wind was blowing, snow was falling, but he forced himself to linger as if it were a beautiful spring day. In reality, “I had to man up,” he said, pointing out that the windchill made it feel like 8 below, the Star Tribune reported.
With no grass blades in sight, he grabbed a handful of snow and tossed it into the air to determine the wind’s direction. He pulled out his 6 iron, practiced a couple of swings and then launched the ball into a vast, white void, the Star Tribune reported.
The video ends with him trudging through the snow toward the next hole. Some viewers questioned why and how he could golf 18 holes in a storm. He didn’t. He high-tailed it back to his truck and pushed his yearning to golf aside. It was time to plow and shovel, the Star Tribune reported.
