Phil Mickelson's triumph over the "links" course at Muirfield (great golfer, classy man), brought to mind a Sunday afternoon some years back when I was working as a taxi driver. I was listening to the local radio station phone in (which was also keeping abreast with the Open) and listeners were invited to send in their questions. 3 of the questions were:
1) Why are "links" golf courses so called
2) If the temperature is described as (eg) 82F in Winston-Salem, NC, or 28C London, how is that figure arrived at?
3) Why do gentlemen prefer blondes?
Now I'm fairly sure it's easy enough to google these, so please use spoilers.
O, and Hi again
