Tiger fades, Q-School changes, and Bubba gets a new car

Hittin' the LinksGood day fellow golfers, and welcome to the latest edition of Hittin' the Links. I have to say that I thought Tiger was going to pull it out in the desert. When I watched the first few rounds he just looked like he had that intensity back in his eyes. Anyway its not like he just completely fell apart, he did manage at least an even par final round.

In this volume of HtL we begin with a look at a very good 14 year old, then investigate a gentleman lacking in his parenting skills, and find out what Finchem has in store for Q-School. Also, we say welcome back to J.B. Holmes, check out Bubba's new car, and do a wrap-up of the week's events. Read on!

    Guys at least put the name of the winner in Abu Dhabi, Tiger was T3...

  2. Do you really think the big story here was some English guy with one other professional win to his credit? I think not, but if it makes you feel better ROBERT ROCK WINS IN ABU DHABI. There I mentioned his name now.

    Come on don't be so touchy, I usually see that you guys put the winner's name in the title, that's why I pointed it out! Cheers!
