One day after reports out of Las Vegas said Anthony Kim was at the Bellagio dropping F-bombs and partying the night away, he has officially withdrawn from the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open citing wrist issues. I had high hopes Anthony this week. When I was putting together my Golf Picks & Predictions last night I picked Anthony to win for the week but had to change it this morning before posting due to his withdrawl.
His management team at IMG has come out and said it has nothing to do with the partying and has everything to do with his wrist, which he had surgery on earlier in the season.
Me personally, I would like to see the old Anthony Kim. Not because I want him to turn into the next John Daly, like Robert Allenby said at last years President Cup, but because golf needs that. Golf needs someone who is out partying the night away and cussing at the craps table and making headlines. It’s even better when he comes to the course the next day hungover and plays well.
Either way, I hope Anthony gets his wrist better and we are able to see him at full strength in 2011.
