Greetings .... Here's an [URL=http://www.rotoworld.com/recent/gol/1172/anthony-kim]article from Rotoworld-NBC Sports[/URL] confirming his current status. What is not yet known (at least to me, anyway) is how many events Kim will be granted to play in order to keep his 2013 status. The money he earns in those events combined with whatever money was earned in 2012 must be at least equal with the 125th player on the 2012 money list (Keven Chappell, $647,511) One thing I do know is that if his recovery period extends into July of 2013, he will miss starts in all three of the PGA Tour events he's won to date. In the case of two of these -- Well Fargo (aka Quail Hollow) and AT&T; National --- 2013 is the last year he is automatically exempt for those events as a past champion, having won both in 2008. Also, Kim is exempt for the Shell-Houston Open thru 2015 as the 2010 champion. Thanx-A-Lot, Frank-0-Sport (briefly escaping from Facebook and other Internet pursuits)

Until AK gives up the party lifestyle and gets serious about golf, he will be known as just another younger player who had a ton of potential and wasted it.

It doesn't sound like it was partying that is sidelining him at the moment.

I too heard he was a partier.  But I've also read somewhere that he toned partying down considerably.

From the article above, it seems like just health issue at the moment.

My favorite Anthony Kim (Golf Related) Partying story

Kim, a very talented and personable young fellow, has admitted to errant behaviour in the past but he is supposed to have cleaned up his act over the last year. Not so, according to Golfweek (and Robert Allenby).

Allenby said friends here witnessed Kim getting back to the team hotel, in Allenby's words, "sideways" at 4 in the morning, less than five hours before his scheduled tee time against Allenby at Harding Park.

"Some guys (from the U.S.) who didn't play well played very well today," Allenby said after the U.S. downed the International team, 19 1/2 - 14 1/2, to win its third consecutive Presidents Cup. Kim, going out in the fourth match of the day, drummed Allenby, 5 and 3, running his record in the matches to 3-1.

"Maybe we should all take the theory of Anthony Kim," Allenby said. "Get home at 4 o'clock (in the morning) and then go shoot 6 under."

Asked if his comments were on the record, Allenby said, "I don't care. Ask his playing partners. Ask his team. He is the loosest cannon in that team."

For his part, Kim denied he didn't get back to his team hotel until 4am, according to Golfweek.

Said Kim, "He said that today? Wow. That's pretty surprising ... I hope that was a joke."

Told it was not, Kim added, "I'm actually pretty surprised that he said that. I was in tip-top shape coming into today. When you get sat out in a match (as Kim did Saturday morning in foursomes), you're out there to prove a point."

Again Kim denied misbehaving and had this to say about Allenby, whom he beat 5&3 on Sunday.

"He may need to go practise a little bit more."

Ouch. The PGA Tour just loves this kind of public slanging match.

As for the rest of us, we can just be happy the Presidents Cup suddenly seemed interesting for once.

He needs to heal up and lay off the partying then he might be able to return to his previous form. Now as for playing hung over I've had both ends of it I've shot some good score and awful scores but only seems to really reek havoc on my short game.

I remember thinking he had a lot of potential but I don't think I've heard anything about him in like the past year and a half.  Is he still injured?

    • Who knows? Clemson is the total mystery really. Yes they have the history of showing up when it mattered. But as usual they’ve not shown us anything solidifying their stake other than blowing out teams they should....and then squeaking by an unranked NC. OSU of course has its pretty impressive resume as well as beating a ranked conference opponent twice...which is a difficult feat that OU did as well ( Baylor).  OU obviously has a porous defense. But who’s tested Clemson’s defense? What defense has tested Clemson? However, as I’ve said before, purely my opinion, Clemson has bite with a solid running game and TL for a damn good passing game. And I think their overall talent and style of play will put them over OSU.  And I’ll say this; whomever gets through will be dominated by LSU.
    • I get it!  and this isn't even my first time asking a stupid question in TST. I write things and hit the "post" button a little too quickly. Another reminder I need to stop doing this isn't a bad thing. So after reading rule 12, I understand there is no penalty. If there's anything elsewhere, or if I ever need complete certainty, I will assuredly give it a thorough read myself.  Related and genesis of my question: I just played in a big church tourney. It was at a private country club, and they made it part of the "tournament rules" to rake bunkers, fill seed mixture into divots, and fix all ball marks. I didn't ask the organizers if these "rules" were officially deemed as the tournament's "Code of Conduct" (which I just read/learned about now) but if so, I now understand that the "committee" could penalize or DQ people. At the time, i didn't know if this was standard or unusual practice, or something the church organizer did for whatever reason. Either way I felt like it wasn't it in the official rulebook, and was seeking confirmation cuz I was too lazy to find it myself. I'll def read the latest rulebook before I post the likes again!
    • Clemson number one?  😱 They’re better than Oklahoma, but that’s all...
    • They should have thought of that when they decided to schedule Wofford, Citadel, and Charlotte for some of their nonconference games. Also I have a really hard time believing that a team that only put up 21 points and squeaked out a victory against UNC should be #1 over both LSU and OSU. Why do you think Clemson should be #1?
    • Who would you rather play...Clemson or Oklahoma...Clemson should be No. 1 but schedule prevents that.
