2010 Personal Golf Year in Review

2010 was quite a year in professional golf and for me personally on the golf course. I achieved several goals this year and had a great time with friends in and around the game. So, for a year end review I thought I would put up two posts. Today’s post is about my year and tomorrows will be about the Professional game. I had to document some of these highlights as they may never occur again.

• 2010 Club Champion at my home course in the Championship Flight – no doubt the highlight of the year

• Holing out for eagle from 94 yards on the 24th hole of the Championship Match to win 4 and 3

• Winning the LV Team Championship this fall with my buddy Randy

• Meeting The King Arnold Palmer – pretty special

• Finishing second place in a team outing with my uncle at Mountaineer Golf Course

• Winning a team event at WCC with my buddy Sam – a putting display I will not soon forget, great job Sam

• Attended the 2010 Masters, my first time at the event

• Watching Tiger play his first practice round on Monday at Augusta prior to the event for his first public appearance since the scandal.

• Watching Tiger and Fred Couple stroll over the Hogan Bridge on the 12th at Augusta

• Playing three great golf courses in North Carolina; The Ballantyne Private Course, TPC Piper Glen and Pinehurst no. 8

• I had the opportunity to play four different courses at PGA National. The Bear Trap got the better of me on the Championship course.

• Attended the 2010 US Women’s Open at Oakmont and watched the Pink Panther bring home the trophy.

• Being contacted by the Publisher Gotham Books to do a book review on Stan Utley’s book called “The Art of Scoring.” This review will be done in January so keep an eye out for it.

• I even got the wife on the course a few times

• Last but not least starting the Golf Blog and receiving almost 1,000 page views in the first six months. It has been a lot of fun and I am looking forward to adding to and improving the blog in 2011.

How was your golf year? Did anything exciting happen to you?
