Oh, the weather outside is frightful…at least it is many places in our great country right now. Heck, I even had to put on a long sleeve pullover to play golf this morning. The weather looked pretty nice in Naples, Florida this weekend though where they played the Franklin Templeton Shootout. Oh, the life of a PGA Tour pro, free money on sunny golf courses while many of the rest of us freeze our tails off. If only I had begun playing golf earlier!
In this edition of HtL we begin with a look at Tom Watson for Ryder Cup Captain, then check out the top 100 to watch, and investigate some caddy fisticuffs. Also on tap, we look into a rather unconventional long drive, peruse some interesting Twitter pics, and do a rundown of the week’s events. Read on!
