Greetings Sand Trappers and welcome again to another volume of Hittin’ the Links. How about Jerry Kelly holding it together well enough to break a seven-year victory drought? Well done!
In this edition of HTL we first look forward to a great field at this week’s Tour event, then turn out attention to the budding Woods-Obama friendship, and the waning collegiate golf season. Also on tap, we look at all the ridiculous things people do in golf carts, congratulate Jerry Kelly on his return to the winner’s circle, and do a wrap-up of the other winners of this week’s events. Read on!
