Hello out there golf fans, and welcome to yet another volume of Hittin’ the Links. There was a lot going on in the golf world this week. I have to say though my favorite moment was when David Toms returned to his winning ways at the Colonial. It’s nice to see him finally get back on track.
In this edition of HtL we begin with a look at Tigers new place in the World Rankings, then check out the Titleist sale, and investigate the Horned Frog at the Colonial. Also on tap, we see who qualified for the U.S. Open this week, find out what Bubba has in store for music fans, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
