Snapshots From A Year On The Road

Senior Travel Editor Matt Ginella shares pictures and anecdotes from a memorable 2011

January 2012
It's OK to hate Matt Ginella. Most of us at Golf Digest do -- or at least a little bit. Our Senior Editor for Travel not only gets to hop from one desirable golf destination to the next, he also has the gall to post an endless stream of photos along the way. Even by lofty travel editor standards, 2011 was a good year for Ginella: multiple PGA Tour pro-ams, multiple trips to Pine Valley, a full week with his closest buddies at Bandon Dunes. See for yourself in this collection of iPhone images Ginella snapped throughout the year. Like we said, you don't have to like the guy, but you at least have to appreciate someone who's living life right -- and is willing to share.

My year started with a last-minute invite to play in what was the last Bob Hope Classic. I played with four tour players: Billy Mayfair, D.J. Trahan, Jerry Kelly and rookie Zack Miller. In a week stuffed with memories and nervous swings, it was the round with the alpha-Badger Kelly I will never forget.
