The Links: Could we see a 59 at Cherry Hills?
LeBron's The Decision wasn't that bad, Stephen Gallacher couldn't be more stoked, and an amazing Phil Mickelson story (but aren't they all?)
Welcome back to The Links -- a Rory's girlfriend-free zone for the time being. Hope you enjoy today's version.
The announcement of Keegan Bradley, Hunter Mahan and Webb Simpson as Tom Watson’s captain’s selections for the U.S. Ryder Cup team confirmed some important points: 1.) It helps to be a brown-noser, 2.) Capt. Watson is even nuttier than we presumed, 3.) LeBron’s “The Decision” wasn’t as bad as we thought, 4.) Experience is more important than form, 5.) The U.S. team is stronger than most folks think. (Sports Illustrated)

Rory McIlroy: "There's probably going to be a few guys that get off to good starts this week that will be thinking of a 59." (NYT)
