Taking stock of 2011 by counting down the year's 25 biggest stories

December 2011
The Barclays at Plainfield CC in Edison, NJ
One common theme of 2011 was the varied -- and often extreme -- effects of Mother Nature. Severe weather seemed to be stalking the sport, causing everything from irritating suspensions (The U.S. Women's Open, most notably) and cancelations (The Barclays being cut to 54 holes) of tournament play, to turf damaged by relentless heat and drought in the Midwest and Southwest, to the devastating flooding seen in the eastern United States.
