Hello again golf nuts and welcome to yet another edition of Hittin’ the Links. Even as the nation develops a case of March Madness the world of golf keeps trudging along. This week’s PGA Tour event was a little anti-climactic as many of the most popular players decided to stay home and fill out their brackets. Even so, there was still plenty going on to write about, let’s see what happened.
In this volume of HtL we begin with a look at Stacy Lewis’ penalty, then check out a Twitter war, and find out what’s going on between Sergio and the IRS. Also, we investigate a golfer who was swallowed by the course, take a peek at Bubba’s golf grips, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
