In Chicago-land in 2013, the Purple People Eater did not play from the purple tees on any Chicago-land golf courses. In fact, the Purple People Eater did not appear anywhere in Chicago-land. (Maybe it joined a rock and roll band in another state.)

Snowfall amounts were insufficiently high to convince Abominable Snowmen to appear and play golf. Have you heard of golf course construction on Mount Everest? Did an anthropomorphic cryptid win the Antarctic Open?

In June, a derecho knocked out electric power, uprooted many trees, and may have allowed some golfers to hit their golf balls 300 yards. To this date though, I have not heard of any holes-in-one on par five holes. Some golfers may have exclaimed, “There goes my cap!”

Lake Forest, Ill. and Conway Farms Golf Club hosted the PGA’s BMW Championship on Sept. 12, 2013. Rainy conditions on Sunday, Sept. 15 created unexpected challenges for the professional golfers. (Zach Johnson won this tournament on Monday, Sept. 16.)

If golfers decided to use public transportation, construction on Chicago’s, CTA Red Line slowed travel to southern golf courses. This construction began on May. 19. Shuttle buses somewhat decreased travel times. Workers completed construction on Oct. 20.

In November, snowfall amounts were sufficient enough to close most, Chicago-land golf courses. (Cog Hill Golf & Country Club remained open.) In 2013, some novice golfers may have needed 13 strokes to sink their first putts.
