The end of the year is all about reflection. And before we take our suddenly useless calendars and toss them in the trash, setting our sights on 2014, we can look back at all we accomplished in 2013.
In the world of Golden Tee, you accomplished a lot. Yes, YOU, and the thousands upon thousands of Golden Tee fanatics just like you.
One of my favorite exercises of the year is buzzing our diligent ITnet team and asking for as much data from the past year as possible. How many putts were taken in 2013? What was the longest drive? Best score? How many feet were hit over the past 365 days?
The results for these questions are always astounding and enormous, and 2013 was no different. Here are some of the incredible numbers, stats and bests from the year that was.
