That's one good teenage golfer!

Hittin' the LinksGood Monday to you and welcome again the Hittin' the Links. What a week in golf it was! There was a lot of golf on television this weekend for the golf enthusiast, too much in fact to watch all at once. So HTL is here to give you the wrap-up on what you may have missed and whatever else interesting there is out there in the golf universe.

In this edition, we tie the knot with Greg Norman, check in on the new super teen of the LPGA Tour, see if Annika really is finished at the U.S. Open, and find out why it's always about Tiger. Also, we investigate the rest of the tours around the world, see what Michelle Wie's future has in store, tee off at this weeks golf destination, and find out why PGA tour stars just can't seem to say "No Comment." Read On.

    Regarding Michelle Wie. What a shame. She is young and talented, but immature and most especially poorly advised by the very people who should have protected, guided and nurtured her natural, God-given talents.

    Can she come back from here? She's too young to be written off, but every year that she's playing poorly, for whatever reason, will make it that more difficult for her. Perhaps it is best that she goes to Q-school, endure some "hardship" and "toughing it out". Perhaps this will make her a better player - mentally.

    We can but wish her well. She'll have to do the rest on her own. Good luck, young lady.

    You know you are rich when you can book all the rooms of an exclusive hotel for 4 days. Greg Norman is the man!
