Line shots: Kenny Perry on going top to bottom
By Friday, he seemed to be buried under the weight of the world after shooting a 75 in the second round of the Tour Championship and was 29th in the 30-player field.
Here's how he described his fall:
“Horrible. Worst experience of my life, just about.
“I don't want to be here. It's ruined my greatest week in my life, coming here. It really has. I don't want to play golf. I want to go home....
“I don't even care. I'm just trying to get my last-place check, post a 72-hole number and go home. I really am. This week has ruined my week, the week I geared up for my whole life.... It doesn't make sense for me to be here this week.”
Only two more rounds, Kenny, then you can take your last-place prize money of about $110,000 and get back home.
