Hello golf fans and welcome to yet another Hittin’ the Links. Its time for the final Major Championship of the year. Will Tiger continue his great play from Firestone? Will Phil the thrill make another surprise run? Or will there be another storyline unfolding at Oak Hill? I love to watch Major Championship golf, it will be exciting no matter who is in the lead come Sunday.
