Hello golf fans and welcome to the Memorial Day edition of Hittin’ the Links. Playoffs were the name of the game this weekend with the PGA Tour, the Champions Tour, and the European Tour events all going into extra innings. Nothing wrong with that, though – I always like a good sudden-death playoff.
In this edition of HtL we begin with a look into Tiger’s uncertain future, then investigate Rory Sabbatini’s possible suspension, and see whats going on at IMG. Also on tap, we check out some girl power, take a peek at the upcoming NCAA Golf Championships, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
