Anthony Kim Trys to Run and Hide

Anthony Kim played like a man not wanting to be caught. Chased would be fine, but caught is something that wasn’t going to happen today at the Wachovia Championship. A 6 under par 66 left Mr. Kim 4 shots in front of his nearest opponents, Jason Bohn and Heath Slocum. Mr. Bohn, the second round leader, shot an even par 72 thanks to a chip in on the 18th hole.

 Anthony Kim played like a man not wanting to be caught.  Chased would be fine, but caught is something that wasn’t going to happen today at the Wachovia Championship.  A 6 under par 66 left Mr. Kim 4 shots in front of his nearest opponents, Jason Bohn and Heath Slocum.  Mr. Bohn, the second round leader, shot an even par 72 thanks to a chip in on the 18th hole.  “It was awesome to chip in on the last hole, but I didn’t play as well as I wanted to today,” Bohn said. “I played with somebody who played extraordinarily good, almost Tiger-esque. He hit a lot of great shots. So it was fun. I got to watch good golf anyhow.”

Mr. Slocum holed out for eagle on the 15th hole, the highlight of his 68 which placed him into the final pairing with Mr. Kim for Sunday’s final round.  “I thought it was going to be maybe three feet short and it really just kept rolling out and rolling out,” Slocum said of his eagle. “It was lined up and the crowd starting getting a little bit louder and a little bit louder and it disappeared.”

 

 

I’ve seen Mr Kim described as flamboyant, notice the belt buckle in the picture at the top of the article, and supremely confident.  At the age of 22, possessed of immense talent it’s easy to understand that description.  He has changed since coming out on tour, witness his decision to chip out to the fairway on the third hole today, rather than play a low percentage shot trying to reach the green. “Six months ago I would tried to go for it, and there was double or triple bogey written all over that,” Kim said. “I chipped out, saved par, and that kept my round going. Little things like that have added to some good play.”  Of course on the 18th hole he ripped a 324 yard drive, hit an approach to seven feet, and made the putt for his closing birdie.  Nothing to this game, eh. “I feel like I’m ready,” Kim said of trying to become the eighth golfer in his 20s to win this year, “but you never know.”

Among the chasers Sunday are some bold names,  Stewart Cink and Dudley Hart are at 8 under par,  Jim Furyk and Geoff Olgilvy are at 7 under,  Fred Couples and VJ Singh are another shot back, and Phil Mickelson is tied with Adam Scott at 5 under par.  A lot of big names with a lot of big game in pursuit of a kid looking for his win on the PGA Tour.  I don’t think he’ll fold tomorrow.

The Majors

Both The Masters (April 9-12) and PGA Championship (May 14-17) have been officially postponed with hopes of rescheduling both events for later in the year. According to the NY Post, the US Open is also set to be postponed and rescheduled for “later in the summer”, though as of Tuesday, March 31 the USGA has made no formal announcement confirming this news.

The R&A has of yet made no announcement on this year’s Open Championship which is due to take place from 16-19 of July.

  • April 9-12: The Masters – Postponed

Unlike the PGA Tour, the European Tour has chosen to postpone almost every upcoming event for the time being instead of cancelling. The GolfSixes Cascais is the only confirmed cancellation as of now.

On Monday, the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open became the latest tournament to be postponed meaning the earliest possible return date for action on the European Tour is now June 4 at the Trophee Hassan II.

PGA Tour to provide financial assistance to players and caddies during Coronavirus pandemic

Published

on

The PGA Tour has announced plans to compensate both players and caddies after several Tour events were cancelled due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

In a memo sent to players on Friday, it was explained that due to IRS regulations, the Tour is not allowed distribute un-earned financial benefits to members, but that the organization has developed some programs to help its players during the ongoing pandemic. Players and caddies will receive financial assistance from the PGA Tour with one of the primary programs to help players based on their current FedEx Cup standing.

Players can receive up to $100,000 in bonus earnings during this period which will subsequently be removed from their season-ending bonus after play has been restarted.

Tour pros will also be entitled to request advance payments (up to $30k) for future Monday pro-am spots and advances on future earnings, while the Tour also plans on allowing players to withdraw funds from their retirement plans based on financial need.

“Playing opportunities equate to financial opportunities, and we are concerned about the toll that canceled tournaments are having on some of our members” – Tyler Dennis, a senior vice president and the Tour’s chief of operations.

Included in the memo were caddies, who are entitled to a partial mid-season distribution of an endorsement program and who can also request financial support from the Caddie Benevolent Fund.

Play is not set to resume on the PGA Tour until May 21 at the earliest.
