That is exactly the problem. AK is in a stage right now where he isn't fully appreciative of what he has and many be taking things for granted; especially, his golf game. That is the issue. Having a million dollars in the bank doesn't give you the right to act like an a**, 25 years old or not.

Being an ass? He was loud in a casino. Casino's are loud to begin with. If he truly did anythig wrong they would have kicked him out. I remeber being his age and younger. I had a ton of fun and some shennanigans too. Add millions of dollars into the equation and things will happen. Whatever happened to what happens in vegas stays in vegas anyhow.

Motteler wouldn't understand what it is like to be on your own anway seeing as he still lives with mom and dad at 27.

You know nothing about me shadess, I should give you negative rep for such stupid comment attacking me. Thats all Il say on that.

Nothing wrong with having a little fun but IMO, Anthony needs to be focused on recovery and getting his game back instead of popping hundreds of bottles in Vegas. Seen too many talented players throw it away, ex John Daly. What does John Daly say about his earlier days, "I wish I would of respected my tour card alot more." Many other examples too

Sure, there is nothing wrong with having fun. But the topic in this post evolved to the status of his game as a PGA Tour player and in my opinion, he is walking on a fine line if he doesn't smarten up and fast. No one said not to have fun, and it's his life to live so he can do whatever he wants.

I'm hard on AK because I like him ALOT as a player and would hate to see all of the talent that he has thrown away because he was irresponsible in his public actions which took from his dedication to the game. You can have as much fun as you want, but to what expense???

I think he will be fine. It is the silly season after all. I don't think his public actions take away from his dedication. The 2 are completely seperate entities.

DAMN THIS THREAD GOT SPICYYYY. lol @ motteler for "pop you in the face" comment.

as for AK, i will agree, its a bit dissapointing to have someone I really respect not take his career as seriously as other PGA tour players might. I grew up in LA near Ktown just as AK has and we're about the same age. I actually heard about him at an early age through my coach in HS who was actually Seri Pak's coach early in her career. He was always a phenominal golfer...just hope he won't throw that away. With that said, he hasn't exactly performed up to where a PGA contender should be...and where do we draw the line between "oh he's still recovering" and "maybe he needs to get his priorities in order." He's already gone through the whole partying scandal early in his rookie years...and it seemed like he's taken a turn from that...and who knows, maybe this vegas incident is an isolated incident.

He has a great opportunity, he'll be back next year and I'm confident he'll content. at the same time...I am around his age and his actions at Vegas seem pretty similar to a lot of people my age. Can't blame a guy for his success and him celebrating it. Afterall, this is really not even as big a deal as a lot of athletes scandals around the NBA and NFL...

Apparently AK set the record for most explicit language used at the casino. How did AK find, a casino Tiger's never been to?

Anthony Kim will not be another John Daly. He'll be fine for next season and who knows maybe him, Phil, and Tiger will be fighting for that green jacket. That would be fun to see.

So we got a 20 something year old guy worth millions that had too much fun in a casino. Big #*$*#@ deal. Get a grip people. I did worse than that (by far) and I didn't have a pot to piss in. No telling what would have happened with an unlimited checking account. He is a very talented golfer doing just what he should be doing. Enjoying life.

Don't know the thumb (which one) but if it is the left one, that takes time. I had surgery and my left thumb was not right for a long, long time, and even gave up the game for a few years just because of frustration of not being able to swing quite as solidly as before -- it hurt. Then after the lay off, finally got back to playing regularly again... but the locked in feeling starting the downswing has never been quite the same and sometimes the thumb is still a little sore if I hit too many balls. So if it his left thumb, who knows the long term effect his surgery may have. Lesson to be learned... as a kid growing up, don't stiff arm a tackler on the helmut with your left thumb. Eventually you may have to have surgery.

That's what Tiger said too.

He won't be another John Daly because he won't win two majors.

Bold statement. I'm pretty sure he will win a green jacket or two at the least in his career. He plays well at Augusta. If there was a future bet for such a him winning two or majors in his career I'd definitely take it.

Would you prefer that he lie? He's being honest, and I appreciate that.

Sorry saw the video of AK and Tiger at a clinic when Tiger was hurt. Tiger was walking through different things and asking AK what he thought. AK inevatably answered everything with I dont know or thats what a caddie is for or I just hit it. Sounds like another guy I know(JD). He has also said I believe that he wishes he was good at a real sport like baseball or football. And not sure if he will stick around the golf scene too long.

Lots of talent with little drive = JD

    • FFS @saevel25 what do you want? It’s like you’re wanting a NYY fan to adore and relish how good the Red Sox are. Ok...let’s say this: OSU is the most powerful NCAA team to date. They should cancel the NC and just give it to OSU. OSU is undefeated this year, so is LSU. I’m a fan of SEC and Big12 because I was born/grew up in those conferences. I’ve never liked OSU and I don’t care what your volumes of stats say and apparently neither does the committee as LSU is ranked number one. There’s nothing left but what we’ll see in the games. 
    • As long as he can square the club face at impact and he gets enough height with the driver, the stiffer shaft will not be an issue. A more flexible shaft allows the head to close and add loft easier, while the stiffer shaft requires the player to do those things. Assuming everything else is equal with the shaft specs, going stiffer will not hurt him.
    • How much history do you want to go back. The last time OSU faced an SEC team was in 2014! Guess what happened,  I just want to make sure,  You want to take credence in the fact that OSU did struggle against SEC teams in the 1990's and 2000's. I admit going 0-7 is not good during that time frame. Yet, you don't want to consider they are 2-1 in the 2010's. I mean, come on man, coaches change, AD's change, they recruit differently now.  The 2016 OSU team wasn't as solid as this team was. Also, OSU had some major deficiencies in 2016. Their passing game was regressing and they were one dimensional. The only reason they had a good season is because that defense was STACKED with NFL talent.  Not buying it. Before Urban showed up, I agree. The top SEC teams had better talent than OSU. After Urban that changed. The issue with Urban was, he was a great big game coach. He wanted his teams to be underdogs. He never won a NC with an undefeated team. That is why his teams after that 2014 NC team struggled in strange spots that Alabama didn't struggle in. OSU would drop that one game a year that they really shouldn't. Still, Urban's record versus top 10 teams is seriously impressive at OSU. I rather take stock in that than what OSU did pre-2014.

    • What did you use to measure the speed, a LM?  If so which one?  GC2 guesses at clubhead speed if not paired with HMT.  Quad also guess unless the club is dotted.   Just look at ballspeed.  It is directly measured by all good LMs.  The higher you can get your ball speed, the better.  Just don't pull the ball to "fake it."
