Hello again Sand Trap fans and welcome to Hittin’ the Links. The world of golf has been busy with more than a few big stories going on. Too bad not many of them are of a positive nature.
In this edition of HTL we start off with a couple of looks at the Mickelson cheating allegations, then turn our attention to the very sad world that is Ken Green’s, and take note that JD is not actually retiring. Also, we find out what Tom Watson had to say about Tiger, investigate the actual story from Tiger Woods’ wreck, and do a recap of the week’s winners. Read on!
