Volume Three Hundred Forty One

Hittin' the LinksHello golf fans and welcome to yet another edition of Hittin' the Links. So what do you think about this Rory situation? It's really too bad that the kid can't have a bad day without every sports writer in the world thinking they know the reason. Golf is hard, sometimes things just don't go your way. I have no doubt Rory will be back at full strength in the near future, even if he does have to use Nike golf clubs.

In this edition of HtL we begin with a peek at Rory's early departure, then look in on an ailing Natalie Gulbis, and check out a goofy new golf course in China. Also, there is more on the anchoring ban, we find out what got Serena Williams in hot water, and do a wrap-up of the week's events. Read on!

Hittin' the LinksWho says it's always warm in Arizona. It was more than a little chilly for the final rounds of the match play this weekend. It didn't seem to slow down Matt Kuchar much, as he seemed to handle the cold and wind very well. Even if he did have to wear Titleist cold weather gloves.

In this edition of the HtL, we begin with a look at Rory McIlroy's poor play, then investigate some more into the anchoring ban, and find out out what the Merry Mex thinks of Augusta. Also, we look at an unscrupulous ex-marine, check out a cool putting video, and do a wrap-up of the week's events. Read on!

Hittin' the Links Well golf fans it looks like the PGA Tour is finally going to break its silence concerning the proposed ban on anchored putters. With the clock running down on giving input to the USGA on the subject, the Tour is talking, and it doesn't sound like the USGA and R&A are going to like what they have to say. This should be real interesting as it plays out over the next few years.

In this edition of HtL we start off investigating what the PGA Tour's stance is on anchoring, then turn our attention to Obama and Tiger, and find out who doesn't belong in the WGHOF. Also, we look at Spencer Levin's year off, find out what Keegan sent out on Twitter, and do a wrap-up of the week's events. Read on!

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!

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!

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!
