Welcome back Sand Trappers to the very first HTL of 2010. And what a break we had – it would be possible to link to nothing but Tiger stories if need be. But what fun would there be in that? There is much more going on out there besides Tiger.
In this first Hittin’ the Links of 2010 we start off looking at the loss of a pioneer, see what Stevie is doing on his indefinite vacation, and find out what we can take from Tiger’s debacle. Also on tap, we investigate Sergio’s newest injury, do a recap of the best tournaments of 2009, and see who has stepped up on Tiger’s behalf. Read on!
