Most Popular Photos of the Year - 2016

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 45 events, including two in Scotland (St. Andrews being our favorite), and the last 7 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 2016. 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.

Haru Nomura (Calgary)

Azahara Munoz at the Canadian Open (Calgary)

Brooke Henderson spoke to a packed media center in Calgary

Madelene Sagstrom will be a rookie in 2017, but she is already very popular with both the fans and the press (Calgary)

Maude Aimee Leblanc (U.S. Open)

Azahara Munoz (l) Carlota Ciganda (r)  (U.S Open)

In Gee Chun (Maybe this made the list because I pressed it so many times) at U.S. Open

The 2015 champion (Muni He) was unable to defend her title in 2016. We have a new champion. The following photo(s) were by far the most popular photos of 2016. Because of their popularity I will post them all again.
