Hello golf fans, welcome to another edition of Hittin’ the Links. So is everyone out there ready for the Playoffs? I hope so because they are upon us. The field at the Barclays looks to be a good one, some new faces mixed in with some old ones who barely made it.
In this latest volume of HtL we start with a look at who barely made the playoffs, then find out why anyone can win a major, and investigate Mike Weir’s season ending injury. Also, we look into players livin’ it up, peruse Rory McIlroy’s 2012 schedule, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
