At the first hole at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., on Sunday, Anthony Kim struck his iron shot a foot from the hole, tapped in for birdie and took the lead from Tiger Woods in his own tournament. No respect. In your face, boyhood hero or not.
By the time the pair, playing head-to-head in the final group, walked off the fourth green, the throngs in a crowd of 43,936 that packed the gallery ropes six-deep were in a frenzy. Most screamed "Tiger, Tiger," as he passed, as if that one word ought to be enough. Others yelled, "Come on, A.K., you can take him down."
