Hello golf nuts, thank you for joining me for another Hittin’ the Links. While I was definitely rooting for Phil to pull off his second win in a row on Sunday, I have to give it up to Bill Haas and that clutch putt in the play-off. One minute it looks like he’s scrambling to stay in the game, and the next he is holding the hardware; it was pretty awesome.
In this edition of HtL we begin with a look at the Accenture pairings, then we investigate the final destination of one of Phil’s tee shots, and check out Natalie Gulbis in a bikini. Also, we find out what’s wrong with John Daly, investigate what Johnny Miller thinks about most everything, and do a wrap-up of the weeks events. Read on!
