Anthony Kim’s debut at the Masters

Anthony Kim, who grew up in Studio City, has done a lot in his brief PGA Tour career, but he’s never played in the Masters. Today will be his first appearance at Augusta National. He’ll play in the group behind Tiger Woods with teenagers Roy Ishikawa and Rory Mcilroy.
“The quality of golf is definitely getting better with the younger generation,” Kim said. “I think kids like myself and other guys are coming out with a lot — our skills are a lot more honed than just coming out here, hitting the ball as hard as you can and learning how to play golf.
Our technique probably is a lot better because we have access to great golf facilities, great coaches. And some people travel out here with mental coaches and trainers and all that.
So we are very fortunate to have that in our back pocket. So I think the level of golf in the younger generation is getting better and better.”
