If you want your caddy to have a seat, make the Tour Championship!

Hittin' the LinksHello golf fans and welcome to yet another Hittin’ the Links. Can you feel the excitement? We are just days away from the opening of the 2010 Ryder Cup matches. I don’t know about the rest of you but there is just something special about watching match play golf.

In this edition of HTL we begin with a look at who will be flying commercial to the Ryder Cup, find out how to become a pressure player, and check out an ex-major leaguer who is pretty salter on the links as well. Also, we peruse the Ryder Cup website, investigate why there is no live golf on Saturday, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
