ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — For the second time this year, Anthony Kim had to withdraw from a tournament.
Kim was suffering from the flu when he pulled out of the pro-am at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. By Wednesday afternoon, he still was not feeling well enough to compete.
“I am very disappointed to have had to withdraw from the Arnold Palmer Invitational,” Kim said in a statement. “I was looking forward to playing this tournament for the first time.”
Kim also withdrew from the Bob Hope Classic in the California desert, where he went to high school. He had a shoulder injury.
The 23-year-old Kim has played only four times on the PGA Tour this year. He said he would return home to Dallas to recuperate and continue his preparations for the Masters.
