Hello out there golf fans and welcome to another fact filled edition of Hittin’ the Links. How about the number that Kevin Na put up on the ninth hole at the Texas Open. Wow, I guess he should have listened to his caddy’s advice and hit his third from the tee box. Live and learn… though I bet we don’t see him hacking from the underbrush again anytime soon.
In this newest edition we look at Tiger’s new video game, check out what’s happening in the college ranks, and see what Jim Thorpe is doing with his new found freedom. Also on tap, we find out what has Phil upset, investigate Rocco’s exemption for life, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
