Anthony Kim out for the PGA Tour seasonPONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida - Anthony Kim will miss the remainder of the U.S. PGA Tour season after doctors diagnosed the Korean-American with tendinitis in his left arm and right elbow pain, tour officials said on Monday.
The 26-year-old will miss the next four to five months with the injuries, suffered last month when he struck a rock while playing from the rough in the first round of the Texas Open.
Surgery is not expected but the 2008 Ryder Cup star will undergo treatment and rehabilitation and hopes to play again in some of four events staged in October and November after the PGA playoffs and season-ending Tour Championship.
“I’m obviously disappointed because I’ve been fighting to get my game back on the right track and having an injury hold me back is frustrating,” Kim said in a statement.
Kim withdrew from his past three starts, including at Quail Hollow earlier this month, and has made only two cuts in seven other events. AFP
