Hello again golf fans and welcome to Hittin’ the Links. What is really up with Ricky Fowler’s wardrobe? Does he get paid extra to show up on the golf course looking like an orange construction barrel? Does Puma actually sell that ensemble in pro shops around the country? To each their own, but you would think they could at least find him a hat that fits, the one he wore all week looked like he had borrowed it from his older and obviously larger brother.
Anyway, in this newest edition of HTL we begin with a look at Tiger’s victims, find out what Tom Lehman learned from John Wooden, and investigate Lefty’s 15th hole on Sunday. Also, we check out the USGA’s change of heart, take a peek at a heck of a graduation trip, and do a wrap-up of the weeks events. Read on!
