Or, in the words of Robert Allenby, you could get beat by a guy 5 and 3 that "Get(s) home at 4 o'clock (in the morning) and then go shoot 6-under." Yep, that is what Allenby said of Anthony Kim after the American's singles match victory over Allenby on Sunday at the Presidents Cup. According to Allenby, Kim was seen returning to the hotel at 4AM early Sunday morning, five hours before his tee off time and, well, drunker than a skunk.
Allenby wasn't amused, and lashed out at the 24-year-old Kim.
"Maybe we should all take the theory of Anthony Kim," Allenby said. "Get home at 4 o'clock (in the morning) and then go shoot 6 under."Kim vehemently denied the claims, saying Allenby's quotes were "absolutely false," but it wouldn't be surprising in the least if Anthony was out on the town. Like the saying goes, your past will always haunt you, and Kim was known as a partier for much of his early PGA Tour career.
Asked if his comments were on the record, Allenby said, "I don't care. Ask his playing partners. Ask his team. He is the loosest cannon in that team."
Allenby went on to call the 24-year-old Kim golf's "current John Daly."
So how did Kim handle the comments from Allenby, who also admitted he was "pissed off that I lost to him. Maybe I should have gone out with him,"?
"If Robert had that to say," Kim said, "he may need to go practice a little bit more."I think that response deserves a very stiff drink for Mr. Kim. Well played, sir. Very well played, on both fronts.
