Volume Three Hundred Forty Nine

Hittin' the Links This is like it was in in 2008, I thought to myself as I watched the final round of The Players. The drama and excitement which have been lessened considerably in the past few years were back. I had my whole family sitting in front of the television all watching Tiger Woods and his pursuers battle it out over the final holes at the TPC Sawgrass. A roar even went up as we watched in disbelief as Sergio Garcia dumped not one, but two balls in the drink on 17. Like him or not, Tiger Woods adds something to the game we all love. When he is in control of a tournament its just more fun to watch, at least it is for me... and my family.

In this post Players edition of HtL we begin with a look at why The Players is STILL not a major, then investigate betting in the college ranks, and check out the advice John Daly is handing out. Also, we turn our attention to the NCAA Championships happening this week, find out how the inductions into the World Golf Hall of Fame went, and do a wrap-up of The Players. Read on!

Hittin' the LinksIt was a soggy Sunday in Charlotte. The players did not look like they were having a very good time as they made it around Quail Hollow. And how about those beautiful greens? The big boys got a taste of what its like to hit a putt at the local muni this week. Several players even withdrew citing personal reasons, I guess putting on less than immaculate greens was too much to bear.

In this edition of HtL we start with a look at the newest ruling, check out the newest special edition driver from Cobra, and peruse some fan favorites still looking for their first major. Also, we take a peek at a Presidential putter, find out who the cool kids are on tour, and do a wrap up of the week's events. Read on!

Hittin' the LinksHello again golf fans and welcome to another edition of Hittin' the Links. So what do you think Tiger had to do to get Lindsey Vonn's parents to come out publicly and give him the thumbs up? Expensive dinner perhaps, extravagant gifts, maybe he just wrote them a blank check? Anywho, you just can't seem to look anywhere at the supermarket checkout line and not see a picture of the two of them smiling ear to ear. Personally, I hope them the best, all we can hope for in this life is to be happy and they seem to be enjoying each others company, a lot!

In this edition of HtL, we check out Tigers newest approval, then look into Greg Norman's thoughts on drug testing, and take a peek at the three-legged beast of the Zurich Classic.

Hittin' the LinksThe Azaleas are blooming, the pimento sandwiches are made, and the green jackets are pressed...it must be Masters time. Hello, golf fans and welcome to the Master's edition of HtL. Its my favorite time of the year when everyone turns their attention to the city of Augusta, Georgia and the Masters. It was only two years ago when I myself finally had the chance to walk those hollowed fairways and see what all the fuss was about. Augusta National is beautiful on television, but one cannot completely understand its grandeur without seeing it firsthand. Its like no other place on earth.

In this edition of Hittin' the Links we begin with the Masters Website, then see who's giving Rory money now, and find out who Phil played a practice round with. Also, we check out Furyk's two drivers, investigate lefty's "special club", and do a wrap-up of the week's events. Read on!

Hittin' the LinksNice weather they were having in Florida. It took Tiger a whole extra day to regain his number one status. Better late than never, I guess. Let's see won three times already, number one in the world again, and dating Lindsey Vonn; it's good being Tiger.

In this edition of HtL we start out with a look at Tiger and Lindsey, then investigate Sergio's tree trouble, and find out what Tom Watson is giving back. Also, we look into Arnold's famous drink, find out what he and Kate Upton have in common, and do a wrap-up of the week's events. Read on!

Hittin' the LinksHello again golf nuts and welcome to yet another edition of Hittin' the Links. Even as the nation develops a case of March Madness the world of golf keeps trudging along. This week's PGA Tour event was a little anti-climactic as many of the most popular players decided to stay home and fill out their brackets. Even so, there was still plenty going on to write about, let's see what happened.

In this volume of HtL we begin with a look at Stacy Lewis' penalty, then check out a Twitter war, and find out what's going on between Sergio and the IRS. Also, we investigate a golfer who was swallowed by the course, take a peek at Bubba's golf grips, and do a wrap-up of the week's events. Read on!

Hittin' the LinksHello golf fans, welcome to yet another informative edition of Hittin' the Links. So I hope everyone got to say goodbye to Doral as we know it. Donald Trump plans to "blow it up" starting immediately after this weekend's event. What we will get when he's done with the Blue Monster is anyone's guess.

In this week's volume of HtL we start out with a look at the Great White Shark in China, then investigate the Donald's plans for Doral, and check out a battle over a Green Jacket.

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!
