Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families and loved ones (and pets)! Hope you had a joyous day and a wonderful year. Many thanks for all your support, and I look forward to more memories and good times in the new year.
2012 has been an unbelievable one. It was the season of sensational comebacks and equally gut-wrenching upsets. I say this every year — with this being the third — but I feel incredibly lucky to have shared my musings and golfing adventures with you all.
I’ve been fortunate to meet quite a few of you IRL (in real life) along the way — or should I say, on the road, all thanks to the inter-webs!
The 2013 season seriously has a tough act to follow! But I guess we’ll kinda have two seasons in the upcoming year, as the PGA Tour will transition from it’s calendar-year season to a fall start. I’m sure there will be some hiccups, chaos and confusion along the way, but WUP will be here to help you navigate through it all!
I’m not exactly sure what 2013 will hold for WUP (note to self: stay patient), but as of now, it’ll be the same drill as 2011 and 2012–with slight modifications as the site is always evolving–where I’ll do my best to bring you behind-the-scenes from life on Tour. I’ll also still be a contributor with Sports Illustrated Golf+ /golf.com.
Oh, I dug up some pictures from the email archives! Thanks to Reader Curt for the passing along the shots of Augusta under snow in February 2010. I figured they were fitting for this time of year… JUST 103 DAY UNTIL THE MASTERS!
I still can’t believe how quickly the last two years have gone! Alright, I’m off to Kapalua tomorrow (my favorite WUP tradition–hey, it’s not my fault the season kicks off in Maui, even though this will be the last time ever), but I’ll be checking in with WUP’s End-of-Year Awards. Woot!
Again, happy holidays and thank you for your continued support.
Xoxo, Stephanie and the WUP team
