''My mom told me, 'Hey, there's a caddie that said he made $60,000 caddying at my club. The caddie stays at home and works four days a week. He's made $60,000. You've only made $30,000,' '' Kim said. ''I couldn't do anything but laugh.''
C'mon AK, get it going man. Either that or take some tiype of medical exemption and heal up so you can actually contend instead of playing and hoping. Right now, he's not even coming close to making cuts or WD'ing, which I beleive is taking what little confidence he has and killing it.
I'm a huge fan btw..

I hope AK gets himself together.
+1 and right on point. I will add...Consider what it takes to get to that level. At some point, you would have had that ability to ignore the voices..what other people think or say. To get to the point where you lose that ability to tune out others, are you first influenced by hearing your own voice asking those same questions? In other words, have you first lost enough confidence in yourself to where you question your own abilities...then you start paying attention to what everyone else is saying?

AK - you are a young guy. Get well soon. You can turn it around.

AK is one of my favorites. Hopefully he can turn it around!

Wish him the best. He seems like a friendly lad.

People judge the guy by his off-course behavior.. But he's young, he has to live too, even if it's too lavishly until it catches up to him. We're watching golf, not a reality TV show.
Plus, people seem to forget this is the same guy who posted 11 birdies at the Masters, and had a T3 finish as well. He's got the talent to go low, just needs to mentally be there too.

i like AK and really hope he can get back to it
sounds like he needs to heal up, talk to someone about his game and practise hard
really tough reading about him not wanting to hit balls on the range w the other guys.......that would be so hard IMO
on a positive note - hes young and has lots of time to come back
CMON AK WE MISS YA!

He should take 6 months off, get evaluated, do some physical therapy, then come back rested and healthy.

I really feel for him and hope he can turn it around.

In regards to his injuries, I can sympathize with him 100%. He needs to get healed up before he goes after it again. Going to the Nationwide and winning his way back up the ladder sounds like the right thing to do, without question.

I was going to ask the same question - where's his Nike staff bag?
Sounds like he might be better off shutting it down for a while, getting to a good place physically/mentally and then mounting a comeback. I'm rooting for him.
