Ok fellow golf addicts, forum users and friends I need your help. I’ve had this request posted over on my golf forum for a few days but I’m putting it here too.

I’d like to to a year ending article for Hooked On Golf Blog which sums up the biggest stories of 2005. Though “top 10” lists make me gag, let’s call it the top stories of the year.

I’ll start with a few here and please help me out with others you can think of:

In no particular order

–Tiger wins 2 majors
–Tiger player of the year and money list winner
–Michelle Wie Turns Pro
–Daly comeback
–ErKnee Els knee injury
–Duval melt down
–Jason Gore
–Phil wins 2nd major
–Mr Clutch: Chris DiMarco (even though he hasn’t WON a tournament) at the president’s cup and runner up finishes.
–The distance debate. Debates over scaling back the golf ball
–Michelle Wie DQ
–Michael Campbell comeback/wins US Open
–Sean and Mark O’Hair saga
–Annika dominates the LPGA Tour
–Paula Creamer makes splash on LPGA Tour
–Jack plays last Masters and last Open (of which I have his autograph on BOTH flags!)
–On a personal note: I MET JACK, that would be my personal #1 event of 2005
–2005: the year of weather delays

    Sean O’Hair debate,
    Jason gore’s dream run and near US Open fairytale
    And course being as fellow Kiwi CAMBO

    It has to be the disqualification of Wie. I have high hopes for her , but positively it will be a lesson hard learnt for the young lady. Tiger on the other notes have been pretty on high and low notes. He proves that he is still the top golfer in this decade but has yet to deal with his ego and temperment. If he manages both well , and smiles more with better focus and not to push so hard on himself , he is bound to be the news (again) in 2006.
    Plus …. its me , first golf blog in this region…he he
