Hittin' the LinksHello golf fans and welcome to Hittin' the Links. It was a slow week for golf due to no PGA Tour event, but there were still a few gems put forth by golf writers this week. I hate to harp, but you really have to check out the uniforms for the U.S. Ryder Cup team in our first link. Some of the older fellows on the team might not look too ridiculous, but the younger contingent might revolt completely. I can hardly wait to see Ricky Fowler in a purple cardigan and gray pinstriped slacks, classic!

Anyway, in this newest volume of HTL we begin with the Ryder Cup uniform, see why people are still talking about Tiger and the FedEx Cup, and peruse what is going on in the college ranks. Also on tap, we investigate a tough junior golf decision, investigate how Lee Westwood is getting along, and take a peek at Jim Nantz's greatest hits. Read on!

Hittin' the LinksGood Day Sand Trappers and welcome to another installment of Hittin' the Links.

So, Tiger is going to miss the Tour Championship… what will golf do? Well, relax people, golf will be fine. I have no doubt after a little swing tweaking with the new coach Tiger will be back as good as ever, maybe even in time for the Ryder Cup.

In this newest edition of HTL we begin with a look at the Tour's most fan friendly players, check into Tiger's newest swing overhaul, and watch Will Ferrell imitate Phil Mickelson. Also on tap, we investigate why Monty is delighted to face Tiger, make some date suggestions for Tiger during the Ryder Cup, and do a wrap-up of some of the weeks events. Read on!

Hittin' the LinksHello again golf fans, and welcome again to Hittin' the Links. Well, it's been a tough week to be a USGA rule book, just about every yahoo who has ever swung a golf club has chimed in on the Dustin Johnson snafu. Personally, I think people should leave the rules alone. The rules of golf are one of the main reasons this is called a gentlemen's game. Instead of trying to change them, maybe these people should pick up a rule book and learn them instead!

In this newest volume we begin with a look at the Stevie-Tiger rumors, investigate some waning country club memberships, and look at how Dustin Johnson is moving on. Also, we check out some tough choices for Monty, investigate this week's rule infraction, and do a wrap-up of the week's events. Read on!
