AK’s biggest fans

Jeff Han, Brandon Truong and Anthony Pidlaoan, who are all 14-year-olds from Arcadia, wore the letters `A’, `K’ and `!’ respectively and garnered some television time.
“We always call (Pidlaoan) AP, and I just wanted to say AK really loud,” said Truong, who came up with the idea. “
The trio of AK fans had ROX on the back of their shirts, but those fell off. They were getting teased by two younger boys in Santa hats, one of whom wore a shirt that said “Anthony” and another which said “Kim.” Those boys told the teenagers from Arcadia that they copied them.

AK’s adventures

Anthony Kim put his tee shot on the short par-4 10th into a fairway bunker, but that was the least of his worries on the hole.

Kim’s bunker shot, from 88 yards out, went over the green and rolled up underneath a wooden fence and against a tower for a television camera.

As Kim waited for a PGA Tour rules official, he sat on the top plank of the fence, which then broke. After his initial surprise, Kim turned to the gallery with a sheepish look.

After a lengthy discussion with a rules official, Kim took a free drop. He chipped about 10 feet past the hole, then holed his putt for a miraculous par. He looked skyward briefly, then burst into a wide smile.

Jim Furyk followed by making his own putt, for a birdie, to snap a three-way tie with Kim and Vijay Singh and regain the lead.
