As someone who hears the outrage when the media drifts into the abyss of stories deemed unseemly by the golf world, I had to chuckle at what the masses were reading at GolfChannel.com.
Kudos to G.C. Digital for posting 2014's most read stories, several of which I'd already forgotten about.
1. Report: Woods paid Galea $76K for 14 visits
2. Kerr disappointed to have to 'fire' caddie
3. Woods at Valhalla, playing PGA practice round
4. Angela Bennett, wife of Kuchar's caddie, dies
5. Hawk's Nest: Anthony Kim, where have you gone?
6. Wozniacki takes subtle shot at Rory's height
7.Watson issues statement responding to criticism
8. Report: D. Johnson suspended for cocaine use
9. McIlroy inspires Scott to switch drivers
10. Choi disagrees with penalty, WDs instead
All but one was tied to either controversy, inexplicable tragedy, First World drama, short jokes, rules violations or suspected drug use. The only "positive" story involved Rory McIlroy inspiring Adam Scott to switch drivers.
