Hello, hello golf fans and welcome to another volume of Hittin’ the Links. The PGA Tour season is beginning to wind down, silly season is just around the corner and players on the PGA and Nationwide Tours are beginning to stress about keeping those all too important cards. To me this time of year is great to watch. Guys you have never heard of grinding it out to the end for a chance to play (or continue playing) on the big stage. Plus you also have to watch the Presidents Cup in order to find out if Freddie’s Tiger pick will be pan out!
In this edition of HtL we begin with a look at the newest member of the LPGA class of 2012, investigate how DJ really feels about Tiger stealing his caddie, and try and figure out what is a Wozzilroy! Also on tap, We check out some friendly competition, see why Freddie is on the hot seat, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
