Anthony Kim's tendinitis woe ends his season
2007 sensation Anthony Kim has been ruled out for the rest of the regular PGA season with chronic tendinitis in his left arm and severe elbow pain, the American announced Monday.

Exploding onto the golf scene five years ago with five top-10 finishes, the 26-year-old will be out of action for the next four to five months. Kim has made only two cuts this year and withdrawn from the last three tournaments, it is hoped that the time off to convalesce will reignite his faltering career.

"That will be my focus for the next four or five months so I'm in a position to return healthy towards the end of the year and be fully ready for 2013," Kim said in a statement.

The Texas-native incurred the damage to his left forearm and right elbow following last month's tournament in his home state after he hit a rock playing out of the rough.

Kim had previous injury problems in 2010, following his third place at the US Masters and a victory at the Houston Open he ended up missing out on three months of the season due to a torn ligament in his left thumb.

He currently ranks 215th on the money list with $33,000 earnings this year.
