2009 Top 10 GolfStinks Posts

It may seem longer, but Golfstinks launched the blog “From the Rough” just 5 short months ago. In that time, we’ve posted content that we hope has made you laugh, think and realize why we love this great game.

We’ve also gathered a decent following – much of which we owe to the other wonderful writers out there in the golf blogosphere who have supported us through our first few months. There are links to all these great bloggers in our “Blogs We Read” section, at the right side of the page – please pay them a visit. We should note that Golfstinks wishes to give special thanks to Jay over at Devil Ball Golf, Mike over at Ruthless Golf and Patricia over at Golf Girl’s Diary – you guys rock!

With all this being said, we’d like to list our top blog posts of 2009 (based on page hits). If you’re new to our blog, this is a great way to acclimate yourself to the world of Golfstinks. For all those familiar with us, enjoy reading them (and laughing your ass off) again! Meanwhile, please visit golfstinks.com to learn about the forthcoming site that has inspired this blog.
