Volume Two Hundred

Tiger wins again, J.D. gets his own reality show, and golf may be part of the 2016 Olympics

Hittin' the LinksHey 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!

  1. pity about the 16th hole for paddy, external distractions or otherwise, we’ll never know what could have been. but don’t forget that TW finished with 2 birdies in the last 3 holes.

    what more can you say about TW? misses the cut at the B.O., comes straight back with back-to-back Ws. look out hazeltine, the man is on fire!

  2. Forget Tiger vs. Jack, let’s get more specific. Is Tiger the greatest irons player of all time?!
