Hello golf fans and welcome to another volume of Hittin’ the Links. It looks a little cold out there for most of you. Even the weather at the Shark Shootout was less than desirable. I myself played golf in short sleeves this weekend. Move south people!
In this newest edition of HTL we begin with a look at GOLF: The Musical, then find out how Tiger is sharing the wealth, and check out the new morning show on Golf Channel. Also, we investigate the newest PGA Tour member to be compared to Tiger (for different reasons this time), look into the marketing of the new PGA Tour young guns, and do a wrap-up of the week’s events. Read on!
