Just when we were all comfy letting the awkwardly named Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial run its course undetected, a local kid up and bolts to the top of the leader board. OK, admit it, we’re still going to ignore the tournament that’s waaay over yonder and features one of the weakest fields on the PGA Tour. But for a day, at least -- or perhaps over just a cup of coffee -- we can sink our feel-good teeth into ... wait … for … it … Anthony Kim. Said the confused, indifferent owl, “Who?”
Born in California and edumacated at Oklahoma, Kim now lives in Dallas and, as of this morning, resides atop the Colonial leader board at 7-under. Only 21, the tour’s youngest player finished Thursday’s remarkable round with six consecutive birdies, golf's longest streak this season. That would totally jazz our soft spikes, if not for the fact that the three weeks in between the Byron Nelson and Colonial chokes all golf momentum around here. And if not for the fact that some of us are still lamenting the coulda, the shoulda and the didn’t. --Richie Whitt
