2013 had to be one of the more memorable years we’ve had on the PGA Tour for a while. Although Tiger Woods was returning to full form after a somewhat questionable 2012 season, the biggest question on everyone’s mind was, could the 14-time major champion win his 15th? In anticipation of a great season that would begin in January at Abu Dhabi with a dream matchup between Tiger, and Rory McIlroy probably did the most to set the tone for the entire season here at home.
Despite the debacle in Africa, the season provided us with a season that saw multiple first-time winners on the Tour, three first-time major champions, a beautiful finish to the worlds most popular tournament where Adam Scott ended the frustrations of a continent, and a Team USA victory at the Presidents Cup.
The R&A, as well as the PGA Tour ended 30 years of broomstick putters, we all found out what Deer Antler Spray was, and Mother Nature intervened in almost every important tournament with weather problems.
Who can forget the wind storm on Maui, or pictures of snow on Thursday at Dove Mountain with Matt Kuchar and Hunter Mahan battling it out on Sunday in 40+ mile per hour winds with toboggan hats. Most of the field had moved on to South Florida and watched on television with the rest of us.
It was difficult to pick out which were my most memorable moments from the 2013 season. There were far more than five, but I will share with you the five that I cherished, and will remember for some years to come.
