Hittin' the LinksHello and welcome to Hittin' the Links. The Final Major of the year is complete, thank goodness we still have the Ryder Cup to look forward to before silly season arrives again.

In this edition, we take inventory at the 90th PGA Championship, see how it has effected the Ryder Cup team, and see why Kenny Perry had to miss out. Also, we see who won Annika's farewell Swedish tournament, find out who Big John is working with now, take note of the toughest Major season yet, and send our condolences to the family of "The Sarge" Orville Moody.
