Hello fellow duffers and welcome to another edition of Hittin’ the Links. It was a little quiet in golf land this week as everyone seemed to turn their attention to the opening week of the NFL. Have no fear though, there was enough going on to fill all nine links of HtL.
In this edition we begin with a look at Ochoa in retirement, then turn our attention to some 9/11 reflection, and check out some Aussies battling for the Presidents Cup. Also on tap, we take a peek at Lefty’s pants, find out who was bragging about their latest round, and do a wrap-up of this week’s events. Read on!
