Hey look everybody, Hittin’ the Links just turned 200! Everybody’s favorite little informative column gets to it 200th episode, and just think I knew it when it was just 121.
Enough celebrating – how about Tiger? Anyone picking him to win the PGA Championship? It’s been awhile since he last tasted victory in a major, I sure wouldn’t count him out at Hazeltine.
In this milestone volume of HTL we start off finding how to make Tiger mad, then take a look at Bridgestone’s new contract with the PGA Tour, and investigate what problems arose between a poker player and the USGA. Also in this edition, we do an Olympic preview, take a peek at John Daly’s new reality show, and do a wrap-up of the week’s championships. Read on!
