Hittin' the LinksHello golf fans and welcome to Hittin' the Links! So how about Rory McIlroy putting on a clinic at the PGA Championship this weekend.

Hittin' the LinksIt was another hot week for the long putter; they racked up three more wins on the PGA and Champions Tours this weekend. I know its a hot topic but the USGA and R&A will be making a huge mistake in my book if they decide to ban the long putter. Too many people have been making their living using these things for a long time and many of the younger players have known nothing else. But hey if they want to ban something just because "it doesn't look right" or some other idiotic reason then go for it. I personally would love to see them ban it and then the PGA Tour not abide by the rule.

Anyway, let me get down off my soapbox and checkout whats in this week's Hittin' the Links. We begin with a look at the golf whisperer, then find out who needs a star, and investigate whats up with David Duval.

Hittin' the LinksWhat a finish to the British Open! Heck, even the engraver had almost started on Adam Scott's name before he began his already famous collapse. Congratulations has to go out to Ernie Els. He is a good guy and since he is older than I am, that makes me like him even more!

Hittin' the LinksIt was a birdie fest at the John Deere Classic this week. As usual the field had to take it low to compete. And what a shot by Zach Johnson Sunday afternoon to win the playoff. After tying the first hole with a pair of doubles, he almost makes a two out of the very same bunker he was in previously. Now the golf world will turn its attention to Lancashire, England for the third major of the year. I do not believe we will have quite the number of birdies this coming week.

Hittin' the LinksWhile his major finishes have left a little to be desired so far this year, Tiger's performances otherwise have been pretty good. He looked very much in control of his game this weekend as he won the tournament he hosts with a solid round on Sunday. I am telling you, it's only a matter of time until he gets that 15th major.

Hittin' the LinksIt was a little steamy in Connecticut this week when play began at the Travelers Championship. High nineties with humidity over 50% wore out several players including Bubba Watson who admitted he was a tad tired during his second-round 71. Hot beats cold though as far as I am concerned; I hate playing golf in a parka.

In this edition of Hittin' the Links we begin by looking at why 87 players made the cut at the Travelers Championship, then find out what made Hunter Mahan's Sunday so special, and investigate what love's got to do with it.
