No sense in delaying… let's get right into it! Kickstarter of the Year I decided not to do Kickstarter of the Year this year because… the topics in the top ten and even the top 20 were either predictable (the majors, the Presidents Cup, the Tiger Master topic, etc.) or started by staff (Would You Rather…?, 5 Minutes Daily Practice, etc.). I will point out that the NCAA Football topic was fairly well populated, oldies but goodies like the Dress Codes topic were in the top 20, and a few others snuck up there. Let's revisit this in 2021. P.S. Unsurprisingly, the ranking order of the majors was… 2019 Masters, PGA, U.S. Open, and British Open. In order of the schedule. Rookie of the Year These members joined the site within the last month of 2018 or any time in 2019 and amassed the most reputation points while remaining in good standing throughout the year (only points earned in 2019 count). Just as you'd expect, of course! These members have a bright future ahead of themselves! Note: winning Rookie of the Year does not preclude you from also winning Member of the Year awards. It'd be like a rookie in a major sport also winning the MVP - it can happen. It just didn't happen this year… 😄 ROTY #3: TST's Bronze Rookie of the Year is… With 84 reputation points… @Bonvivant! This member joined TST at the late date of July 29, 2019! ROTY #2: TST's Silver Rookie of the Year is… With a grand total of 85 points, edging out the bronze finisher by one point, and having joined us early in 2019 on March 24… @FlyingAce! ROTY #1: TST's Gold Rookie of the Year is… With a whopping 115 reputation votes in total, a member who joined after Tiger won the Masters in 2019 (May 9), and a guy who is not Phil Mickelson… @leftybutnotPM! Congratulations! Now, it's on to the big one. The one we've all been waiting for. The… Member of the Year These members are the best of the best. They amassed the most reputation points during the calendar year 2019, and remained in good standing throughout the year. Their peers - you guys and gals - felt their posts were worthy of the most thanks, skins, fist bumps, high fives, or reputation, whatever you want to call it. These are the elite. The people who make insightful posts that help further the discussion… even if you disagree with them occasionally. Or frequently. Reminder: staff (me, @nevets88, @billchao, @NCGolfer, @boogielicious, @tristanhilton85, @mchepp, @georgep, @Pretzel, @Shindig, @mvmac, @RandallT, in no particular order) are ineligible for yearly awards, or we would have taken home some hardware here. But, moderating you fine folks is prize enough, and we thank you for your contributions to our community here! Without further ado… MOTY #3: TST's Bronze Member of the Year is… This member has a current content count of 4,630 and joined the site on January 14, 2015. He plays about as much golf as anyone here despite having a mostly full-time job, a wife, and enjoying traveling and meeting up with people. He's a two-time Newport Cup participant, and he's made the most of his 4600 posts, and rarely posts something which doesn't stop to make people think, whether you agree or disagree with him. He's been a single digit golfer for a while now, and racked up 438 reputation points during 2019, nearly doubling his 220 from 2018 (and our first repeat winner of the same award)… our bronze award winning Member of the Year is @DaveP043! MOTY #2: TST's Silver Member of the Year is… This member joined on November 3, 2008. He loves chippers, hates Tiger, loves the military, hates practicing, loves playing, hates losing, but loves gambling. He hasn't changed his profile picture since he joined the site, so far as anyone can recall. With 14,285 posts, and 592 reputation points earned in 2019 alone, the silver Member of the Year for 2019 is… @David in FL! MOTY #1: TST's Gold Member of the Year is… Now it's time for the big cheese. When this member isn't shanking the ball (or complaining about shanking the ball), he posts on TST with a little bit of attitude, which is fine. He's passionate about his golf, and he's a lifelong student of the game. He's bald, he joined the site one day after my birthday on March 24, 2014, and he's amassed 5,613 posts in his time here at TST. In 2019, this member blew away earned 2.19 points per day (for a total of 800 points). The best of the best of the best, the Rory McIlroy (?) of TST for 2019, the cream of the crop and our second repeat winner… @Vinsk!
