Hittin' the LinksGood day to you golf fans, and welcome to yet again another volume of Hittin’ the Links. It’s British Open Week, the week where all Americans have to wake up at the crack of dawn in order to watch the action live. I know I have my alarm set for 6:30am.

  1. Just as a heads-up, the Hittin-the-links posts as of late have had the first point/hole without its own paragraph, it just starts at the end of where the previous paragraph is supposed to stop.

    A quick view of the HTML shows that the opening (in case that gets auto-parsed, the opening paragraph tag) is not present before the first hole, but the closing tag for it is present. The remaining points have proper opening and closing paragraph tags, the first one is just missing the opening tag for some reason.
