Kenny Perry's major championship roller coaster has finally ended, doing so in equally bizarre fashion as it took off.
Currently the active leader on the FexEx Cup point standings (Tiger Woods is just ahead of him), Perry created an uproar this year by skipping the U.S. Open and the British Open for lesser known PGA Tour events that he already committed to. He did all of this because his main golf this season was to make the Ryder Cup in his home state of Kentucky.
Well, he isn't finishing the PGA Championship either. After a first round 9-over 79, Perry withdrew because of a scratch cornea he suffered Tuesday night.
Obviously it would be tough to play a round of golf in any situation with a problem with your eye, but I'd say he will be working to get this fixed up so he can participate in the Ryder Cup come September. Nothing would be worse than a guy trying as hard as Perry has to represent his country and having to miss out because of injury.
I'm sure he'll be fine, but here is some good will coming from us guys.
