Most Popular Photos of the Year

As many of my readers know, my wife and I go to quite a few LPGA tournaments each year. Since 2010 we have gone to over 40 events, including two in Scotland (St. Andrews being our favorite), and the last 6 Canadian Opens.

I do all the writing on here (my wife who is a teacher, is my proofreader), while my wife Cindy does most of the picture taking. Neither of us are professional photographers, but once in a while we get lucky and capture a moment that is very popular with my viewers.

Below I have reposted the most popular pictures of 2015. I based this on the number of website hits, and the number of comments each photo received. Some came as quite a surprise to me, as when they were taken I was not expecting such a reaction.

The #1 most popular photo(s) were of a non LPGA member. They were downloaded 5 times more than any other photos I published all year. I believe she is eligible to compete in Q-school in 2016.
Because of their popularity, I will post the entire set here once again:

  1. How do Rolex rankings change when girls are not playing?

    1. See my post on the Rolex Rankings.
      That will explain how the system works.

    2. Rolex points start depreciating after 13 weeks out to 2 years. Players who have had more recent success are not as succeptible to point loss. Some players have played events on the LET, JLPGA, or KLPGA tour after the finish of the LPGA schedule.

    3. A player wins and gets 91 Rolex points. For the first 13 weeks there's no deduction but for the remaining 91 weeks is deducted 1 pt weekly?

  2. Mi Hyang Lee's been getting better every year and her secret is what girls do in Scotland when they're not playing golf.. Scottish highland dancing!
