Every three months, I update the Reader’ 1-Year Top-25 Posts tab. It’s an opportunity for readers to see what others saw as the best posts in the last twelve months.
For example, “Lizette Salas: Humble But Tough,” began as post with average readership, but apparently word spread over time and Lizette’s story shared in an interview gained enough traction to climb into the Top-25.
And I love that my homage to the great Jim Flick in, “RIP, Jim Flick,” days after his passing continues to draw people to who this great man was.
As a measure of how intense the issue of anchored putters has become, it’s interesting how many people came to read, “Anchored Putters;” it was the No.1 post for the year. But more interesting to me was that so many readers came just trying to find out what an anchored putter was.
One of my personal favorites, “Why Tiger Changed His Swing,” is almost two years old. It looks at the seemingly incomprehensible decision by Tiger to go through a third major swing overhaul and explains the kinesthetic reasons a player might risk that, actually, must risk that.
Speaking of longevity, “Supermodel of the Fairways,” about the emergence of Hee Kyung Seo as a player and a beauty on the LPGA Tour finally had its beginning hordes cycle out of the totals. So too with, “Paige Mackenzie: Right On The Cusp,” whose initial visitors spiked when she retweeted my tweet about this exclusive interview. They both stayed in the Top-25 for a long time.
It was also rewarding that readers enjoyed more eclectic posts such as, “Jerry James: One of Golf’s Characters,” or even, “A Beautiful Thing Happened at the Masters,” the story of Bubba Watson’s highly conscious and improbable win at the Masters last year.
In any event, there’s something for everyone here and perhaps some that you missed. I hope you enjoy revisiting some of your old favorites or discovering new ones that could be.
The next update will be June 30th.
