Volume Three Hundred Thirty Eight

Feb. 11, 2013     By     Comments (0)

Hittin' the LinksHello there golf fans! So think about this statistic, Brandt Snedeker is a whopping 82 under par so far this season. Yes, 82 under! He has two runner-ups and a win in his five starts, and has made over $2 million. That's a good season for most people and we haven't even gotten to the first major. This could be the season to remember for Mr. Snedeker.

In this edition of HtL, we start with a look at Condoleezza Rice's game, then see how Tiger helped out a "friend", then investigate whats going on in the Vijay Singh probe. Also on tap, we watch lefty fall on his heinie, find out what Hunter wants done to slow players, and check out the results of this week's tournaments. Read on!

I’m Caddie Tour GPS Review

Feb. 4, 2013     By     Comments (8)

I'm Caddie 3I subscribe to the K.I.S.S. method (Keep It Simple Stupid). On the golf course I rely on my stock ball flight unless I am absolutely forced to move the ball one direction or another. My first thought on every short game shot is what is the simplest way to play it, and I always try to err on the safe side with any shot decision. So it's safe to say I am not exactly Phil Mickelson. So when I was asked to review the I'm Caddie Talking Golf GPS, one if the simplest golf GPS devices on the market, I thought this gadget might be right down my alley.

Hittin' the LinksOh, the weather outside is frightful...at least it is many places in our great country right now. Heck, I even had to put on a long sleeve pullover to play golf this morning. The weather looked pretty nice in Naples, Florida this weekend though where they played the Franklin Templeton Shootout. Oh, the life of a PGA Tour pro, free money on sunny golf courses while many of the rest of us freeze our tails off. If only I had begun playing golf earlier!

In this edition of HtL we begin with a look at Tom Watson for Ryder Cup Captain, then check out the top 100 to watch, and investigate some caddy fisticuffs.

Hittin' the LinksHappy December golf fans, and welcome to Hittin' the Links. Q-School is heating up with one round to go.

Hittin' the LinksBizarre as it was to watch on Friday, I have to give props to Charlie Beljan for getting it together over the weekend and winning at Disney. I saw him play a couple times in college as he and I both attended the same University. Good for him, from second stage of Q-School to two-year exemption in two tournaments.

Hittin' the Links$200 million dollars, people! That is what Nike is reportedly paying Rory McIlroy to become a member of their staff. For that kind of money I imagine they could get him to go back to hickory and gutta percha. I can hardly wait for the first commercial where he tries to convince all of us he switched to Nike for the better equipment, yeah right!

In this edition of HtL we begin with a look at Rory's big move, then check out the youngest Masters qualifier ever, and find out why people were resentful to Adam Scott. Also, we investigate Nike's new red driver, look into the 5 easiest golf shots, and do a wrap-up of the week's events. Read on!

Odyssey Metal X #7 Belly Putter Review

odyssey_metalx_7_belly_sole.jpg Nothing brings about a heated discussion in the world of golf today quite like the long putter debate. Although the long putter made its debut on the PGA Tour way back in 1980; the controversy really did not heat up until the last few years when the belly putter started becoming more prevalent, and started winning big golf tournaments. I, myself, have been using a belly putter for two years now. Because of this I was the lucky enough to be chosen to try out the Metal X #7 Belly Putter by Odyssey. Lets see how it went.
