Volume Three Hundred Nineteen

Hey you, hiding clubs in the bushes is against the rules!

Hittin' the LinksIt was a little steamy in Connecticut this week when play began at the Travelers Championship. High nineties with humidity over 50% wore out several players including Bubba Watson who admitted he was a tad tired during his second-round 71. Hot beats cold though as far as I am concerned; I hate playing golf in a parka.

In this edition of Hittin’ the Links we begin by looking at why 87 players made the cut at the Travelers Championship, then find out what made Hunter Mahan’s Sunday so special, and investigate what love’s got to do with it.
