Anthony Kim may not like it but you have to hand it to Robert Allenby, he keeps us all entertained on and off the course.
This week’s PGA Tour event, the superbly named Farmers Insurance Open is played at both Torrey Pines North and South. The South course was host to the 2008 US Open and considered the harder of the two.
Allenby shot a bogey-free 67 today and although sitting three shots behind the leaders, he was the only player in the top 15 to have played the South course so far. Here’s what he said after his round:
“I gauge myself off this golf course,” Allenby said. “This is a real golf course. If it wasn’t, they wouldn’t have had a U.S. Open here. I don’t want to say the other course is Mickey Mouse because that would be rude. But it’s Mickey Mouse-ish.”
It is not like Robert to be rude.
