Hello again golf fans and welcome to yet another edition of everybody’s favorite column, Hittin’ the Links. One more event remains in the 2010 PGA Tour season, one more shot for many players on the bubble to make sure they retain their cards. But first the Tour will take off a couple of weeks for the big cats head overseas for the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic and the WGC-HSBC Champions. That gives the rest of the lot two weeks to get their games in tip top shape before they head off to visit Mickey Mouse.
In this newest volume of HTL we begin with a look at party animal Anthony Kim, then take note as Adam Scott moves into his prime, and investigate why Rickie Fowler is cooler than Justin Bieber. Also, we find out how much money Elin really got, look in on the youngest winner ever on the European Tour, and check out the amazing end to the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital Open. Read on!
