Brockie Takes His Fourth Spring Thaw Title

(photo: Mike Brockie, Courtesy Cascades Golf Course) By Gary Kalahar JTV Sports Mike Brockie didn’t spend much time getting ready for the season-opening Spring Thaw golf tournament. And apparently he didn’t need to. With limited practice and not getting in his first 18-hole round until six days before the tournament, Brockie still walked away with the Spring Thaw title Sunday at soggy Cascades Golf Course. Brockie, on top by two strokes after Saturday’s first round, never surrendered the lead while shooting a 2-over-par 74 for an even-par 144 total. Greg Zeller and Noah Schneider tied for second at 146. Brockie said he felt surprisingly good about his game a week ago after his first full round. “I thought, ‘Holy cow, what’s going on?’” he said. That sentiment might be shared by a lot of Brockie’s competitors who are wondering whether Jackson’s dominant golfer of this decade is ever going to slow down. Perhaps they shouldn’t hold their breath. The 46-year-old Brockie, winner of 15 major local titles since 2010 (and 19 overall) and the Player of the Year six of the last seven years, has long been known as one of the city’s biggest hitters.

Heavy Rainfall Possible This Weekend

The threat of heavy rainfall is the primary story for this weekend. We have a storm coming northeast out of the southern Plains that runs into a large Canadian Polar High over Ontario.  That blocks the front from getting too far north and results an extended period of showers and thunderstorms from late this afternoon into Monday morning. Rainfalls of over 2 inches are more than possible over a large part of our area by Monday morning. It will be cooler than normal through the weekend thanks to that blocking Canadian high.  Today:  Showers likely, mainly after 4pm. Cloudy, with a high near 51. Northeast wind around 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible. Tonight:  Showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Low around 42. East wind around 16 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible. Sunday:  Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm before 11am, then showers and thunderstorms likely between 11am and 2pm, then showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 2pm. High near 66. East wind 11 to 14 mph,…
