Hello again golf nuts and welcome to yet another Hittin’ the Links. We have a new World Number One! If you didn’t see this coming, then you haven’t been paying attention. Rory McIlroy has it all and I have a feeling he will be atop our beloved World Golf Rankings for some time to come.
In this edition of HtL we begin with a look at our new Number One, then investigate some rumors about Tiger, and take a peek at the guy with the smoothest putting stroke I have ever seen. Also, we check out the downside of professional golf, take a look back at some past World Number Ones, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
