Hello golf fans and welcome to another installment of Hittin’ the Links. I have to say I was very happy to read our #1 story this week. The fact that Tim Finchem came out in support of fans reporting rules infractions does my heart good. Maybe we can now put our long running forum debate to rest.
In this newest HTL we begin with a look at Finchem’s opinion on fans calling in rules violations, check out John Daly’s wardrobe, and look into the World Golf Rankings. Also on tap, we find out who will be at the Match Play Championship, see who’s getting into the World Golf Hall of Fame, and do a wrap-up of the events around the world. Read on!
