Volume Two Hundred Twenty Nine

Bay Hill needs some overtime, Finchem shows favoritism, and Couples kicks senior butt!

Hittin' the LinksHello again golf fans, and welcome to another volume of Hittin’ the Links. This volume comes before we even have a winner at soggy Bay Hill. You will just have to watch Golf Channel for those results.

In this edition of HTL we begin with a little verbal nothingness from everyone’s favorite crackpot Martha Burk, then take a look at Michelle Wie’s latest rules gaffe, and investigate some PGA Tour favoritism. Also on tap, we find out at least one person who is happy about Tiger’s return, check out the testing department at the USGA, and do a wrap-up of some of the week’s events. Read on!

  1. so what explains why the korean girls are so dominating on the LPGA tour? is it a statement about the KLPGA or the US LPGA in terms of junior development programs, etc? There’s more money on the LPGA than the KLPGA so why is it that with all that money, the LPGA can’t replenish its aging domestic stars? Come to think of it, its older stars are still shining brightly on the tour – many are mothers several times over !!!
