Today is the last day of 2007. I’m going through the year’s posts and highlighting by month, some of the best subjects of the year.
January 2007 saw me at my first PGA Merchandise Show and I got a ton of hits, comments and thousands of video views of my interviews. I even had people from the pga.com staff watching me kick their butts delivering info from the show. In their words, “you’re doing in minutes what would take us days to do.”
When TaylorMade introduced the new Burner and Superquad drivers, Hooked On Golf Blog had the #1 and #2 spots on Google’s search results for those keywords, even over Taylormade’s own web site!
January 2007 also saw the first decent press for Tadd Fujikawa.
February 2007 had some miracles and some tragedies.
In the miracle department, Spiro from Bogey Lounge had is first child.
In the tragedy department, a close friend of mine had most of his family killed by a drunk driver.
Titleist introduced the new ProV1 and ProV1x golf balls.
Tadd Fujikawa won the Hawaii Open.
Ernie Els switched to Callaway.
I tried to drive a golf ball through a 32 inch Sony TV from point blank range.
Tiger Woods signs a ball retriever endorsement contract.
Nike admitted to selling illegal drivers.
Arjun Atwal under investigation for street racing death.
Sergio Garcia shows how classless he is by spitting into the cup at Doral and then brushing it off in a “Clintonesque” fashion in a post round interview. “I didn’t spit, I just let it go down anyway. It’s no big deal.”
My Ping Zing putter, the best putter EVER, was stolen.
Phil Mickelson switches to swing coach Butch Harmon.
The Golf Space social networking site, celebrates its one year anniversary.
THE 2007 MASTERS:

Arnold Palmer is the ceremonial starter for the 2007 Masters. I can’t hold back the tears!
Zach Johnson wins the 2007 Masters.
Hey that last Tiger Woods post was #1600 here!
