Cink can laugh at himself

SCOTTSDALE -- At least Stewart Cink has a sense of humor.

Shortly after he finished off an 83 Thursday in the first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, he took to Twitter to explain the uncharacteristically high score to his fans.

@stewartcink I'm not injured, except for slightly bruised ego.

Cink's round of 12 over included three double bogeys, seven bogeys and a lone birdie. He only hit four fairways, six greens and had 32 putts.

Thursday's round was Cink's 1,385th in 406 starts on the PGA TOUR. His previous high score was a 13-over 83 in the third round of the 1998 British Open.
