The Knucklehead of the Day award
Today's winner is PGA Tour pro Kenny Perry. Perry a nine-time winner on the PGA tour was not happy about conditions at last week's Mercedes Championship in Hawaii. Some players complained the course was playing too tough. Kenny Perry was one.
"I think they've blown it," Kenny Perry huffed after a 77 in the third round. "It's a little unfair. Everyone has to play it, but I don't think it's golf, in my opinion. Who wants to shoot 75 or 76 when that's the average score? I tell you what, it's shot my confidence."
There is more. Perry gets the Knucklehead for the following.
Perry was so flustered that he said he would consider not returning next year if he was eligible. Mark Calcavecchia thought that was a little severe. After all, they're in Hawaii being treated like royalty. Last place paid $70,000. Every player got a free room at the Ritz-Carlton.
$70,000 for four rounds of golf and luxury hotel accomodations for one week.($685 per night according to this week's Golf World). Plus $500 were of certificates towards food, spa priviliges, free baby sitting, free sungglasses to name a few things. Where can I sign up? Mr. Perry is in serious need of a reality check. Go try making half that money Kenny for a whole year as a greens superintendant at a golf course in middle america.
For being an overindulged ingrate and spoiled brat at age 45, Kenny Perry is today's Knucklehead of the Day.
