Hittin' the LinksDon't look now, but many big names teed it up this week in the WGC event in Shanghai.

We're already a month into the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season, the Champions Tour concluded this month, the European Tour and the LPGA are moving toward their finales. It's true, golf's Silly Season matters now.

Hittin' the LinksRookies are doing very well on the nascent 2015-2016 PGA TOUR season. Meanwhile the LPGA, European Tour, and Champions Tours are approaching their finales for 2015.

Hittin' the LinksReady or not, it's already next year on the PGA TOUR. Just a week after the U.S. won the Presidents Cup (again) in Korea, three of the competitors teed it up in Napa in the season opener.

So we're already talking about FedEx Cup points for next year's race and debating who will make their respective Olympic teams, not to mention the Ryder Cup.

It's going to be (another) long, fun season. Let's hit the links.

Hittin' the LinksEven with the PGA TOUR over for a few weeks, there's still plenty of golf. The European Tour marches on toward Dubai. This week's Dunhill Links Championship featured Kingsbarns, Carnoustie, and the Old Course. That's a hard to beat triple play.

Starting Friday, the Presidents Cup will be contested in South Korea, without Tiger Woods for the first time since 1996. It should be a fun week.

Hittin' the LinksTiger Woods is recovering from another back surgery. Phil Mickelson bowed out of the FedEx Cup Playoffs after Chicago. But the excitement for golf's young guns is overshadowing their absences.

Especially exciting is the leader of the pack's performance this season. Jordan Spieth is the youngest, at 22, but also the poster child (if you will) for the youth movement on tour. With two majors, five PGA TOUR wins, and 15 top 10s, he has put together the kind of year that Tiger did in his heyday.

Joining him are Jason Day (with five overall wins including the PGA Championship, the WGC Bridgestone, and two FedEx Cup playoff events), Rickie Fowler (two wins), and Rory McIlroy (two wins). None of them finished higher than 15th in FedEx Cup points, with Spieth and Day going one-two. 2016 could be a lot of fun.

Hittin' the LinksThere's just one week left of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season. Despite missing the cut twice in the FedEx Cup Playoffs Jordan Spieth remains in atop the standings, but Jason Day is closing in.

And in Germany, a possible breach of etiquette lead to a fired up U.S. team rallying from four points back in the Solheim Cup.

Hittin' the LinksIt was an off week for the FedExCup playoffs, but that doesn't mean that there weren't interesting golf stories to follow.

The LPGA held the final major of the year on Lake Geneva in France on one of the most gorgeous courses of the year, even when it's playing barely 6,000 yards.

At Royal Lytham and St. Anne's, the Walker Cup pitted the best amateurs from the U.S. against those from Great Britain and Ireland.

But wait, there's more! Let's hit the links.

Hittin' the LinksBig three or big four? The best young guns in the game? Rickie Fowler made a strong argument this week in his case for belonging in the heart of the conversation. Forget the Golf Boyz, Rickie. I think we have the makings of a great boy band, and I'd trade swings with any member of R2J2.

Next week, the LPGA will hold golf's final major of the year, the Evian Masters. And the FedExCup Playoffs continue outside of Chicago at the BMW Championship. Speaking of which, in case you need them, here are the current playoff standings.

Hittin' the LinksWhat a year we are witnessing on the PGA TOUR. We came into the year with Rory McIlroy being the undisputed world number one. Then Jordan Spieth seemed virtually unbeatable for a few months. Those two, along with Rickie Fowler, were even being dubbed "the new big three."

Now Jason Day has joined the party in a big way. With his fourth win of the year coming Sunday at the Barclays, Day has replaced Fowler in the conversation or made it a big four. His 63-62 over the weekend was an incredible display.

Things are shaping up nicely for some epic duels in the future. And just imagine what it will be like if Tiger and/or Phil can get their games together when it matters. It's going to be fun. Let's hit the links.
