Hello sports fans and thank you for joining me for another Hittin’ the Links! How about Phil Mickelson! I have always been a fan of Phil, but I really root for him now that I am over 40. I always like it when the older guys take home a title. Nothing against the young guns, I just can’t always relate.
In this edition of HtL we begin with a phone call from Lee Westwood’s mom, then investigate a interesting golf injury, and take a look at a golfers’ dictionary. Also, we check out the Donald’s newest feud, find out why America should forgive Tiger, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
