Hello out there golf fans and welcome to another edition of Hittin’ the Links. The weather might have been the winner this weekend at The Players. That was one first class rain storm on Saturday. Congratulations has to go out to K.J. Choi. He has been right there several times this year, its good to see him finally break through.
