Hello out there fellow duffers, and welcome to another Hittin’ the Links. Is it me or does the TPC San Antonio look like a complete nightmare of a golf course? I mean a bunker in the middle of a green, really? Greg Norman must have been having a bad year when he designed this atrocity. I guess that’s why nobody we care to watch showed up to play this week and Tour players consistently rank it in the bottom of Tour courses.
In this edition of HtL we begin with a look at Sean Foley, then check out a record breaking 13 year-old. and find out who has Bieber fever. Also on tap, we investigate Kevin Na and a chainsaw, take a different look at Augusta National, and do a wrap-up of the week’s winners. Read on!
