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.

    • As others have said, you''ll probably be hitting a lot of shots with short irons .  with awkward changes to grip,posture, that kind of thing.  I'll be surprised if he let's you swing your driver unless your iron game is really competent and you don't have swing flaws. A very good chance it'll make you a better player, but early lessons  might not be fun. At least that's been my experience and that of everybody I know who have taken lessons.
    • I responded initially to David's comment about hitting an approach shot with what I thought would require a fairway wood to a difficult green and being confident in the outcome. What you've quoted was a response and disagreement to Kevin's comment suggesting that hole would not be difficult for higher handicappers. I'll resist replying to @Vinsk's post directly below yours. My apologies for taking this thread off-topic.
    • I've been looking at my swing in caddie view, especially P8/A8 (the shaft is parallel to the ground in the follow-through) and I noticed that my neck and eyes are still pointing in the direction of where the ball was at address until after P9/A9. I think this is a really bad move for me as I am left handed and left eye dominant, meaning that my dominant eye isn't really seeing the ball after impact, and I am not extending or raising my head from P7/A7 to P9/A9. Annika Sorenstam (who is right handed and right eye dominant) does the opposite move, at P8/A8 her eyes and neck are in the direction of the clubhead from a head swivel move in the downswing. Jim Furyk and David Duval do the same thing that she does and all 3 players shot sub 60 rounds... Could this be a magic move?
    • Uhh, these guys you are destroying, what scores do they usually shoot? they had low handicaps, they were on the golf team with me or for another high school.   You have a 28 HDCP, yet you hit the sweet spot consistently on your irons? for the most part, yes.    thank you for the suggestion, but I hate the feel and look of game improvement irons. which ones do you suggest?
    • Funny guy this Groucho, think he is trolling you Erik.  My story as someone who scores in the seventies when playing a good round (low eighties are more common). I really need my long game to be on. Hitting it 220-230y from the tee, playing a course at 6700y. Next I mostly have a wood or a hybrid to the green. Because of that I became a really good woods/hybrid player (practice it a lot during my rounds). There are two 440y par4's that I can't reach in two, stopped trying to make gir there (no more 3 woods out of my shoes to the green). Not that I hit every green, I even miss greens from 100y in, allways very happy to be on the green in regulation. Ngir is king for me. If not on the green, but almost, I try my Texas wedge (putter) to make up and down. I am not an elite player at all, but am really into scoring. Thinking about buying a chipper, because my chipping is below average. I take my driver out on every hole except par3's. I learned to hit a short gripped driver with an easy 70% swing 180-190y, when there is danger at 200+y, it works for me all the time.
