Growing up in the 90’s, I was like a lot of kids in one very specific way: I loved professional wrestling. I had all of the action figures, my parents had VHS tapes delivered to our door with regularity, and whenever it was on TV, it was a guarantee that my brother and I were on the couch watching. And that was even before it became way more mainstream in the mid to late 90’s.
I’m sure you’re wondering what on earth this has to do with the proposed Premier Golf League, and I don’t blame you. The key is that last line about how mainstream professional wrestling became in the second half of the 90’s, and while I’m not suggesting that golf will achieve the same level of mainstream attention, the blueprint is there for something golf has been lacking for a very long time: a breath of fresh air at the highest levels.
Charlie Woods is ten years old. In the short time that he has spent on this earth, he has been in the spotlight a fair amount, to the point where everyone in golf circles, and many outside of those circles, are very aware of who he is. It makes sense, of course. As the son of Tiger Woods, there’s going to be a level of visibility that other ten year olds won’t ever have, which is something I’m sure they, and their parents, are quite happy about.
2019 was a lot of things. It was fun, weird, and emotional, but more than anything, it was enthralling. I know I probably say this every year, but the game really delivered over the last twelve months, and the result is this list.
As always, hit me up on Twitter with your thoughts, and we’ll see you in 2020!
When I first started writing this blog back in 2012, I didn’t really have much of a plan.
All I really wanted to get out of this was to have a place where I could stretch some of my creative muscles, as I had switched out of an editorial position at my day job about two years prior, and I was missing the feeling of putting something out there. It didn’t matter to me how many people read it, or shared any of the posts on Twitter; it was about creating something, and ultimately, getting better with each passing post.
