This is always one of my favorite pieces of the year, a time we can look back at some of the absurd stats, purchases and overall numbers the Golden Tee community totaled over the course of a year.
In 2014, I am proud to announce these numbers stayed absurd. Congratulations to all of you; we knew you wouldn’t let us down.
As we sort through thousands of Golden Tee ‘Shots of the Year’ contenders for a video that will be released in the coming weeks—and, as always, we welcome your suggestions—let us embrace our trip down the GT numbers rabbit hole.
What did you do this year? Well, the answer it quite a bit. Here are some numbers from the year that was, and thank you very much to the ITnet team for passing these along per usual.
