There were wins.
And there were major wins.
There were moments we won't want to forget. The ones that reminded us why we love this game of golf.
No doubt we've all got our own lists, tucked away for clubhouse conversations, filed away for those "remember when" moments.
These are just a few of the ones that stood out for me. (In no particular order.)
Since Zach Johnson won the Open Championship he's handled its icnonic trophy in the best way(s) possible.

There's been plenty of talk about golf's youth movement. Looking even further into the future, there's this level of passion that's growing in the elementary school-aged set.
The 2015 Masters? This happened and it was a thing a beauty. Looking back, we probably all had a feeling it was the start of someone's very good year.
Speaking of breakthrough wins. Jason Day dazzled through all four rounds at the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. Round 4, when he needed his game to remain strong? He striped this down the fairway. Go ahead, we won't blame you if you watch repeatedly.
Since practice makes perfect, it's no wonder these two guys are winning. (Miss a cut? Move on to the next course.)
We've rounded up plenty of other "Best of 2015" lists, enough to keep us entertained until the next round of memories.
Let the countdown to golf's greatest moments of 2016 begin.
