Kim withdraws from Wells Fargo with wrist injury
Question of the Day
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Anthony Kim withdrew from the third straight tournament Friday at the Wells Fargo Championship.
Kim told PGA Tour officials that he had pain in his right wrist and elbow, along with the left thumb, which he had surgery on two years ago. He said this week there was no structural damage, but he couldn’t shake the injury.
Kim said he would review his options before deciding whether to complete next week in The Players Championship.
“I’ve tried to play through the injuries, but I know from experience that it will only make matters worse,” Kim said in a statement. “I’m going to get it looked at and do what I need to do to get back to full health.”
Kim is at No. 210 on the money list. He would lose his full PGA Tour card if he doesn’t finish in the top 125 this year. However, if he’s out for a prolonged time period, he could seek a medical exemption for next year.
Kim withdrew from the Houston Open after opening with a 79. Two weeks ago at the Texas Open, he struck a rock trying to hit out of a bush and withdrew because of pain that shot through both arms. He said he did not hit balls for 10 days.
