ROCHESTER, Minn. - Something rare happened in Minnesota on Friday, the temperature hit up to 58 degrees. 

While people were lining up outside stores, people were also lining up at the golf course. 

"We've tried to keep people off the golf course until about 10 or 11 o'clock because of frost, but we didn't have that this morning. So I got here around 8, 8:15, and there were already cars in the parking lot and people ready to go, " Jeff Gorman, Golf Professional at Eastwood Golf Course, said. 

He said they've had golfing this late into November before, but that hasn't been the case this year. 

"Five of the past ten years have gone well into November, even up to December. I think that October and November this year have not been that good, then we get a day like today and we'll call it black friday at eastwood," he said. 

Gorman estimated about 60 golfers out on the course today and with the warm temperatures forecasted into next week, he's expecting more golfers.
