Volume Two Hundred Sixty Four

John Daly whines, Tiger makes a funny, and Bubba takes home the hardware!

Hittin' the LinksHello golf fans and thank you for joining me for another round of Hittin’ the Links. It was an exciting final round we got to see at the Farmers Insurance Open. I always like it when tournaments come down to the very final shot with several players in contention. Congratulations to Bubba Watson, he made some crazy clutch putts coming down the stretch. It could be a breakout year for the left-handed bomber.

In this newest edition of HTL we begin with another ridiculous John Daly story, move on to more negative Tiger news, and find out how Tiger actually made a funny. Also on tap, we investigate Tim Finchem’s request to the USGA, see what happens when Jamie Sadlowski meets watermelon, and do a wrap-up of the weeks events. Read on!
