Well, have you? Rumor has it the rest of the LPGA tour passed a hat around last week in order to collect enough money to pay Lorena Ochoa to finally take a week off. Just kidding of course, but one thing seems to be true: there’s Lorena then there’s everybody else.
That aside, welcome again to Hittin’ the Links, the best little column on the web with which you can quickly get caught up on all that’s golf. So, all you squanderers of company time sit back relax, and read on.
In this volume we start off taking a look at Tadd’s big day, put an end to a silly rumor, check in on the Cookie Lady of Hilton Head, and see what happens when prairie dogs invade your golf course. Also, we take a peek at Tiger’s watch, congratulate Darren Clarke on returning to the winner’s circle, and check in on the rest of the tours around the world.
