Anthony Kim happy to be contending
Golf beat writer Bob Harig talks to Southern California native Anthony Kim about what he’s done to turn his game around following a surprising 5th-place finish at last week’s British Open.
Once considered among the best of a group of up-and-coming young American players, Kim, 26, has clearly not been the same since undergoing thumb surgery last year following a tie for seventh at the Quail Hollow Championship.
“I’ve found my game, it’s just I haven’t brought it to the tournaments,” Kim said Sunday. “I’m excited that this is the tournament I brought it to. Obviously other tournaments are very important, but to play well at major championships is what I work for. So to be able to put up some good rounds, probably my best rounds I’ve played all year, at the British, is pretty rewarding.”
