Good day golf fans and welcome to yet another informative edition of Hittin’ the Links. So Tiger returns to the winners circle; does this mean Rory and Luke better watch out? I believe that type of thinking might be a little premature, but I do believe that a winning Tiger Woods is good for the game of golf.
In this edition of HtL we begin by finding out what has Arnie irritated, investigate a strange missing ball on the European Tour, and take a look at the new Q-School. Also on tap, we look into John Daly’s return, peruse a little-know golf rule, and check out the week’s winners. Read on!
