Happy Rev. Martin Luther King Day Sand Trappers and welcome to another edition of Hittin’ the Links. Anyone else wish they were in Hawaii this week? Shorts and short sleeves were the dress code for spectators of the Sony Open. It must be nice.
In this newest volume of HTL we begin with a look at the relationship denials coming from DJ’s camp, then turn our attention to the plight of young Alexis Thompson, and investigate the sale of some Masters Memorabilia.
