They just said on the Live From that coming up they would look at the world's highest ranked players to never have won a major and they are adding Anthony Kim to that list. That is so absurd. To even think of lumping Kim in the same group with Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia, Stewart Cink and Steve Stricker is ridiculous. Kim hasn't been on tour long enough for anyone to lament his 'missed chances'. He hasn't had any chances yet. You know, people have speculated that the pressure the media puts on guys like Sergio by saying 'best player to have never won a major' plays on the minds of the players. Well, by laying all this at Kim's feet this early, the media could very well bring a premature end to his playing career. Leave the guy alone for a few years. The Golf Channel put Justin Rose in this group and I wouldn't even put him there - and I'm a big fan of his. Justin hasn't peaked yet. And I also think the Golf Channel went down the World Rankings list to the odd number of 13 just so they could include Anthony Kim in the discussion. Why stop at 13? Why not go to 27 or 34 on the list? Other people they could have discussed - Henrik Stenson (17), Luke Donald (21), and of course Kenny Perry (16). Surely they want another chance to criticize Kenny Perry's decision to play in America this week.
And how many times are they going to say "Tiger's not at the Open this week"? We all know that by now. The media need to get over it already. I think they are hurting because now they have to learn facts about all the other players that they've been ignoring for the last 10 years. And they have to actually watch the golf this time around.
