Volume Five Hundred Nine

Tiger, Tiger, and More Tiger

Hittin the Links I’m sorry folks, but if you’re looking to avoid wall-to-wall Tiger Woods coverage, you’ve come to the wrong place.

We’re back after a hiatus longer than a striped Tiger Woods 2-iron now that there’s been some action in the world of golf, and as you can expect, we’ve got the Man in Red on the brain. If you haven’t heard, the G.O.A.T. came back this week for his first competitive round in nearly a year, and didn’t play too shabby in his return. Woods finished tied for ninth place, 10 shots back of champion Rickie Fowler, but did briefly hold the lead on Friday. A mediocre Saturday 75 sunk his chances at victory, but there were more positives than negatives to take away from the Hero World Challenge.

Sun Mountain Speed Cart GT Review

Reviewing the newest push cart offering from Sun Mountain.

Speed Cart GT HeroWhen I got the notification about a Sun Mountain push cart available for review, I jumped at it. The brake on my old Bag Boy cart was permanently stuck, and I had a long summer of men’s league matches ahead of me. I knew I’d want the extra convenience and energy that comes with not having to lug my stand bag around.

The Speed Cart GT is firmly at the top of Sun Mountain’s push cart line. It’s light, it folds up small, and it’s full of space to put your stuff. It also costs an enticing $210.

Is it worth it?

Let’s find out.

All Jordan Spieth, all the time.

Hittin the Links Welcome back to Hittin’ the Links, ladies and gentlemen. This week is wall-to-wall coverage of Jordan Spieth and the Open Championship.

Spieth was nearly derailed after a disastrous tee shot on the 13th hole, but rebounded with an incredible stretch of golf to close out the round.
