Welcome golf nuts to another edition of Hittin’ the Links. I certainly hope everyone out there caught the end of the PGA championship. What a finish, I have to give big kudos to Keegan Bradley. After he chipped into the water on 15 he could have easily just packed it in. Instead he decides to go birdie crazy amid the hardest stretch of holes on the golf course. And all of this in his very first major championship appearance!
In this edition of HtL we begin with a look at the long putter, then check into Tiger’s upcoming schedule (or lack thereof), and investigate the Phil fiasco. Also on tap, we find out where Rory was heading Sunday night, peruse the final weeks until the FedExCup Playoffs, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
