Hello golf fans and welcome to the 2013 Golf Season! I am back again with a collection of all that is interesting and golf related. This is the beginning of my sixth year here at The Sand Trap, and I have enjoyed every minute. Here is to another great year of golf!
In this first 2013 edition of HtL we begin with a look at Bubba’s charitable side, then investigate what Tour players think of Rory’s switch, and find out how that switch worked out for him. Also, we check out Stricker’s semi-retirement, look into Rory’s decision for the Olympics, and do a wrap-up of the weeks events. Read on!
