Happy Presidents Day golf fans and welcome to another edition of Hittin’ the Links. It was another interesting week of professional golf. I personally was rooting for Freddy Couples to finally pull off his bid to win at 50+. Congratulations to Aaron Baddeley though for breaking his four-year drought.
In this edition of HTL we begin by investigating Jim Gray’s removal from Riviera, then turn our attention to the Accenture Match Play Championship, and check out Vijay Singh’s new putter grip. Also on tap, we take a look at college golf, peruse Tiger’s latest gaffe, and do a wrap-up of the weeks events. Read on!
