A 16 year-old makes the Top 25, Tony Romo can play golf, and Elin wants $750 million!

Hittin' the LinksGood morning golf fans and welcome again to Hittin' the Links. What happened to the Byron Nelson? Poor Byron, he is probably spinning in his grave. Once an event where golf's best came to pay homage to Lord Byron, has now turned into the Tour stop of the no-names. Is Texas really that bad?

Also, we look into Tony Romo's bid for a spot in the U.S. Open, check out what Elin Woods wants in the divorce, and do a wrap-up of the week's events. Read on!

    750 Million? WOW... He had to have a pre-nup, and I would have gotten an all-out "Adultery" clause that didn't completely screw me out of 3/4 of my LIFETIME EARNINGS to some gold digger with a pretty face. I'm not a Woods fan, never have been, but that sweet little Swedish face is showing her true colors...

    "If you ain't no chump, holla we want pre-nup, we want pre-nup!!!"

    All professional athletes should have learned from Michael Jordon to draft iron-clad prenups. If Tiger failed to have one, he deserves to lose most of his lucre.

  3. Jim Dauer says:

    Elin certainly has a lot of bargaining chips and Tiger's going to have to pay a King's ransom to keep Elin from moving to Sweden with full custody of the children, writing a book or sitting down with Oprah, Larry King and Barbara Walters.

    $750M is a lot of money, but when you're talking about a man who could give away every cent he has on a Monday morning and be a millionaire by that Sunday afternoon, it's hard to say exactly what is fair.

    In any case, I won't be feeling sorry for him (from a financial perspective) regardless of what he pays Elin, as I'm sure (like any cat) this Tiger will land on his feet.

    Thanks for the link to the kid doing the US road trip. Great way to vicariously travel the US while indoors and the writing is pretty good, but of course, the kid is headed for Williams.
