Happy Easter from Hittin’ the Links. I certainly hope most people enjoyed better weather than they had at Doral on Sunday. I know the members at Isleworth Country Club cannot be too happy with what has transpired, as it has cut into the playing of The Tavistock Cup. The official Tavistock Cup website has a press release stating there is a two and a half hour delay for the start of play. I guess you do anything to get Tiger there.
In this edition of HTL we check in on the ailing David Feherty, see where they plan to play the Byron Nelson, and investigate what golf balls and condoms have in common. Also hot off the web we have an 80-year old man with three holes-in-one in a single day, we take a look at Michelle Wie’s hurt wrist, listen to the PGA Tour rumor mill, and check out some of the best golf resorts money can buy. Read on!
