Dallas's Anthony Kim Expects to Lead the British Open Leaderboard

Anthony Kim

Through four holes at The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, Anthony Kim's one stroke off the lead. And it probably doesn't surprise the California native and current Dallas resident that he's at par and near the top (and, sure, it's early): He tells the U.K. Independent in a lengthy party-hearty profile this morning that he expects to do well at the British Open -- like, ya know, win-it-all well:

"Absolutely I see myself winning a British Open. Everyone starts at even par and it doesn't matter who you are playing with. It's you against the golf course. People don't know who I am here but, hopefully, that will change. I like to screw it around. That can help me here. A 10-footer to win? I think every little kid grows up dreaming of that moment."
He likes to screw it around? My new favorite golfer, if I liked golf. --Robert Wilonsky
