Kirk goes on alone

KAPALUA, Hawaii – Chris Kirk was scheduled to be paired with Lucas Glover in Friday’s first round at the Plantation Course. But when Glover pulled out a few hours before his tee time with a knee injury, that left Kirk by himself.

As Kirk waited on the tee, someone reminded him: “By the way, you’ll be swinging first in this group.”

Replied Kirk with a wry smile, “Thank you.”

Kirk is making his first appearance  after winning the Viking Classic last year. He also posted three other top-10 finishes in his rookie season on TOUR.

Kirk, decked out in his usual Travis Mathew attire, was wearing the company’s new Steadman shoes that look like canvas deck shoes, albeit with a specially designed sole for golf.
