The Kenny Perry British Open Debate


A week or so ago, I wrote that Kenny Perry might have been making the right decision for himself by skipping the British Open in hopes of gaining even more Ryder Cup points, but it was going to seem strange to critics.

It turns out Perry has been enduring a ton of raised eyebrows on the decision.

No matter your take on it, Perry can continue to fall back on the "I already committed to these tournaments when I was playing like a dog" song and dance that will get people to leave him alone. The statement is true (and extremely respectable) but I'm sure those tournaments deal with golfers that are hot at the time picking bigger events over their site. Nonetheless, Perry is committed to this and even if you're caught scratching your head, he (and Ryder Cup Captain Paul Azinger) know that this is the decision that will best benefit Perry.

The one thing that will be interesting, and Kenny brings it up, is after all this, he tanks at the Ryder Cup.

“I told (wife) Sandy, this might be the worst thing I’ve ever wished for,” Perry said. “I may play poorly and get drilled.”

If the Americans want a shot, Perry and newfound hero Anthony Kim will have to play out of their grills at Valhalla. I have a feeling this Ryder Cup could be a little refreshing for the American team. No Tiger, no pressure, no worries, just play golf.

Does he realise that the british open counts as part of the PGA tour ? Any money he earns in Britian will go towards his ryder cup points? It's a silly decision, as you point out I'm sure the tournament organisers at milwaukee deal with players that are hot and also he's actually taking away a spot from a young rookie who would benefit far more by getting in at milwaukee... a very silly decision indeed.

I think he realizes that the points count from the British Open. He may have taken a spot away at Milwaukee but he also added a spot in the Open. You don't think someone was pretty happy to get that spot do you? He should be commended for honoring his commitment to play at a lower end tournament that needs some higher profile players to get the fans out. Please let me know when you see Tiger playing in Memphis, Quad Cities, Hartford or Milwaukee and I'll be sure to post an apology. Especially in these economic times we need to have some big name players get out to some of these smaller events! He should be regarded as a man of integrity above all else and we should have our young kids look to him as a true role model!
