What a couple of weeks its been since the last Hittin’ the Links! Sorry Sand Trappers but everyone needs to take a holiday now and then. On my vacation we watched Rory dominate, crowned a FedEx Cup winner, and watched as the American Ryder Cup team gagged their guts out on the final day of competition. Now that that’s all behind us we can get on with the Fall Finish and then to the real excitement, Q-School.
In this edition of HtL we begin with one adorable outside agency, check out one long putt, and find out what Davis Love III has to say about the Ryder Cup. Also, we find out what Lefty’s doing on Monday Night Football, investigate an awkward smooch, and do a wrap-up of the weeks events, read on!
