TIME FOR KIM TO GROW UP

Anthony Kim needs to grow up and he has proved this fact in quite a number of occasions. He is almost a train wreck and he never seems to leave an opportunity to allow people to feel the same about him in his acts.

This week’s Las Vegas Open also saw him in the same state. He is known to be an out of party animal and there have been various occasions where he just parties like crazy the night before and comes in a rugged manner the next day to play his tournament championship.

DONALD MISSES SHANGHAI

Money-list champion Luke Donald has ruled himself out of playing at the Shanghai Masters next week, because he wants to stay at home and help out at the birth of his second child.

He is currently leading the race to Dubai by over £1m, but if one of his main competitors (most notably Rory McIlroy) was to win they would jump ahead of him in the rankings - with a massive £1.25m up for grabs in Shanghai.

Donald didn't think it was much of a decision. "It's important to make sure that I'm around to support my wife," he said.
