Hello 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!
