Anthony Kim: Do not get your golf balls in an uproar just yet
1. He’s young…
2. He wears a tight belt buckle…
3. He makes birdies…
4. He’s young…(We have to recycle them, after all.)
Anthony Kim is 40% of the way to the land of Johnny Pott, Blaine McCallister, Mason Rudolph, Roger Maltbie, Lionel Hebert, Ken Green, and 24 other guys. They all have five career PGA Tour victories. John Daly’s on that list, too, but he has two majors.
Would you call any of those golfers great? Hope not. Hall of Fame? Hope not. Yet the drooling media cannot help itself in a premature coronation on the part of Kim.
I remember 1991, when an old college running mate won twice in a row at Kemper and Buick, leading into the US Open. Billy Andrade even went out to lead that event through 9 holes at Hazeltine. He didn’t win it, though, and isn’t great. He’s pretty funny in person and I imagine Kim might be, too.
Point is, hesitate. After all, Kim’s only halfway to Billy’s career total of 4 wins.
Thanks to the Wikipedia for the info on the golfers. Sadly, my own wikipedia page is still non-existent. I haven’t done enough for greatness to be rested on my head.

Tom, I learned a lot more at Wake Forest than you might ever learn in your interminable and wasted life. I think you're confusing total loser with the guy who looks back at you from the mirror...oh, that's you.
By the way, thank you both for taking the time to comment. You think I'm an idiot, I think you are damaged goods, we understand each other.
It's all just meaningless hype so far. Plenty of people have won two titles..
Are you writing love notes in my blog! Tisk, tisk. And I thought we were frieds and you call me a chipmunk like the rest of the fans. And get that straight, I have more fans piling in like an NFL game. Gee as infatuated as I am with Tony Romo, I may have to change to a football editor. I think I know about as much of that game as golf :0) Some of course say I don't know anything even about golf.
They are NOT saying he is young and talented. They say that he is destined for glory, on glory's trail, etc. It's too much, too soon. He's in the running for a major for the first time this weekend. Let's see how he does.
"Nice try, Fake Chris Baldwin...I see the visitor brackets next to your name. I'm not nearly as dumb as your parents were"
Gee, so apparently you can read. As far as bing dumb, could have fooled all of us, you are more than a few cards short of a full deck. Look at that pose. Did you even have parents?
