Who says it’s always warm in Arizona. It was more than a little chilly for the final rounds of the match play this weekend. It didn’t seem to slow down Matt Kuchar much, as he seemed to handle the cold and wind very well. Even if he did have to wear Titleist cold weather gloves.
In this edition of the HtL, we begin with a look at Rory McIlroy’s poor play, then investigate some more into the anchoring ban, and find out out what the Merry Mex thinks of Augusta. Also, we look at an unscrupulous ex-marine, check out a cool putting video, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
