Rory gets it done in the Big D, and the ladies say good bye to the Corning Classic

Hittin' the LinksHello and welcome to another exciting edition of Hittin' the Links. Well the mood was somber this week after the news about Amy Mickelson broke. I think we all wish the Mickelsons all the best and will keep Amy in our thoughts.

In this edition of HTL we find out more about Amy Mickelson's condition, and find out what the Tour wives are doing in support. Then we look forward to the U.S. Open and more specifically the yardage, see why David Toms had a bitter-sweet weekend, and then do a wrap-up of this week's tour events from around the world. Read on!

  1. Yani Tseng is Taiwanese!

    You're right. Shame on me, because I remember them mentioning that during the broadcast, too. I've corrected it. Thanks.

  2. Sorry about that but in my defense here is the beginning of the story I linked to:

    CORNING, N.Y. (AP) - The LPGA Corning Classic certainly received a memorable farewell.

    Just when Yani Tseng seemed headed for a playoff Sunday with fellow South Korean Soo-Yun Kang, Tseng watched in amazement as Kang missed a 3-foot par putt on the final hole.

    I guess I am not the only one to make that mistake. Did you alert the writer of that story too?

    The AP fixed it later. Just got to stick up for my fellow Taiwanese.
