Volume One Hundred Fifty Four

Halle joins up with Callaway, Giuliani sues Duke, and Michelle Wie is back on the PGA Tour

Hittin' the LinksHello and welcome to another edition of Hittin the Links. Has anyone out there seen Michelle Wie's best interests? Because I'm fairly sure her advisors have lost sight of them. Just when you think they have finally got her going in the right direction, she shows up at another PGA Tour event. Well, let's at least hope she remembers to sign her scorecards this time. Both of them.

In this volume of HTL we take a look at what everyone is saying about Michelle Wie's next PGA Tour attempt, investigate why Andrew Giuliani got kicked off the Duke University golf team, and find out what Callaway and Halle Berry have in common. Also, we take a peek at the destination of the week, see why Chris Wood is going pro, and take note of this week's tour winners.

  1. The Guiliani story kills me. As a former Division I baseball player I find this story to be a joke. If you aren't good enough to be on the team then you are removed from the team. Scholarships are not four year contracts, they are typically renewed every year. Often times in college sports there can be a coaching change which results in a roster change. Give me a break with this lawsuit.

    If you are good enough to play try to walk back on (I think that mommy and daddy have enough money to pay for college) and prove that you are good enough to make the team. It sounds like Duke's golf roster was way too big anyway.
