Hello again and welcome to Hittin’ the Links. If you missed it, they gave out the Tartan Jacket this weekend. I have never understood why they give out a jacket to the winner of a tournament a week ofter the the Masters. Congrats to Brian Gay on adding to his attire. A win in Hilton Head means you can definitely hit it straight!

Also on tap, we look into Colin Montgomerie’s latest outburst, find out why Rory turned down the PGA Tour, and do a wrap-up of the week’s winners. Read on!
