Volume Two Hundred Seventy Five

Lee Westwood wins his way back to number one.

Hittin the LinksHello fans of golf, and welcome to this week’s Hittin’ the Links. It was an exciting one in the world of golf, as one of the PGA Tour’s premier events came down to a playoff. Brandt Snedeker won his first PGA Tour even since 2007, edging out hopeful number one Luke Donald.

This week on HTL, we take a look at Poulter the scaredy cat, a Woods finally winning a golf event, and John Daly’s advice to an NFL rookie. We also take a look into Dustin Johnson’s world, check in on Phil, and reinforce the fact that Donald Trump never misses an opportunity for self-promotion.

  1. Jamo,

    Interesting note on Trump. Looking ahead, let’s say the 2012 Presidential Election ends up without a majority in electoral votes due to third-party candidates. Any chance Obama and Trump would decide the election with 36 holes match play – at Congressional C.C. of course – rather than send it to the House of Representatives?

    Just wondering… We could even put together a Sand Trap broadcast team to cover the event.
