The Links: Are the Olympics going to be terrible for golf?
There's a chance that because of the way golf is structured at the Olympics, nobody will be interested.
We tried this whole afternoon links thing on Wednesday and it was kind of fun. Back at it again on Thursday and possibly beyond. Here's all the stuff I read about golf on Thursday and didn't blog about.
