There have already been numerous stories of impending clashes between the Captain's wives, and entire features on the most alluring WAG's .... features. And that's fine. Many of enjoy such stories, weather we'll admit it or not, we're genuinely interested in what these ladies are wearing, how they're reacting and

And that's where tonight's topic comes in. Have you ever heard of HABs? Do you ever remember reading any fluffy features about the husbands and boyfriends of female golfers?

That's what we'll be talking about tonight on Only Two Things. You can join the conversation on-air by using our call-in number, which is: 917-889-9592.
