Hooked On GolfWow I can’t believe that YESTERDAY was the 7th birthday blogday of Hooked On Golf Blog.  I posted my first ever golf blog back on December 5th, 2004 when there were perhaps only 5 golf blogs in cyberspace.  Starting this golf blog, at the suggestion of my best friend Al, has resulted in seven fantastic years of golf filled fun.  I’ve met SO many great people, played so many great courses and tested out more gear than one could imagine.  This journey has been a blast and it will only get better!  I AM NOT DONE!

Since HOG’s humble beginnings in 2004, millions of visitors have logged hundreds of millions of hits here and I’ve posted thousands of articles and thousands of golf photos.  I’m going to log some stats for historical reference below:
