Farewell to 2012
Well, readers, I'm going to get some rest in the middle of a lot of hard work the next couple of weeks, so this will be my last post of 2012. It's been fun writing for you and covering the widest range of topics ever, I think. I hope I've enlightened your thoughts about golf clubs, playing the game and whatever other nerves I might have struck from time to time.
I was talked into writing a twice-weekly blog by a dear friend and fan way back in 2007, and the "library" now contains well over 500 articles about nearly everything golf-y. Some of those that date back to the early days are still getting responses as new readers stumble across them. The most "nerve-striking" posts were my treatises on blades vs. cavity-back irons. But I've struck out a few times with you as well. Sorry about that.
I sometimes worry about what I'm going to write about each Tuesday and Friday morning, but then the news or a question from one of you or a SCOR customer just clicks, and off I go. Sometime my inspiration comes from my own struggles and triumphs. I'm pretty much a range rat, and love to go out and spend a couple of hours hitting hundreds of balls, just to see what happens when I do this or that. Those sessions always equip me with plenty of content ideas.
Writing this blog and reading your comments has been one of the great experiences of my golf career. It keeps me connected to what you guys are really thinking about and what you want to know. This fascinating game offers us all plenty to take away from each round, each month and each year.
As I reflect on 2012 and think about where this company, my life and my golf game are going in 2013, I count my blessings to be able to make my living in this game that I love so dearly. And that I'm the head of a team of golf-passionate, hard-working professionals that are excited about completely changing the way golfers look at their sets of clubs, particularly their scoring tools.
SCOR4161 precision scoring clubs have earned a base of loyal devotees with our radical challenge to the way wedges have been designed and built the past 50 years. Because they simply work better.
We've asked tough questions about why wedges haven't really changed in all those years, when the way we play the game has totally evolved from finesse to power. Of the hundreds of golf clubs I've designed over the past 25 years, this one is the most game-changing. This one is the most gratifying, as it has the potential to do to our scoring range performance what titanium did to our driving and hybrids did to our long range shotmaking.
A big claim? For sure. But we get proof and feedback every day that SCOR4161 delivers.
So, as I look back on 2012, I see lots of good and bad. But I have my health, am blessed to be leading a major change in the way we all build out our sets of clubs, and make a living around a game that I love dearly. Wow.
Merry Christmas to you all. May 2013 be filled with long drives, more fairways and the best scoring range performance of your life.

from someone who looks forward to your wisdom once or twice a week and whose scores have slowly come down since reading your column wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year and may all your shots be happy ones and go where you aim
Terry, I've been reading and enjoying your columns for more than 4 years. They are most always thought provoking, and on many occassions, have lit that little light bulb in my head. I thank you for your contributions. I wish you and yours a safe and happy holiday season and a prosperous new year.
