in pursuit of tiger

Here's an interesting profile on golfer Anthony Kim, who won his first PGA tour event earlier this year at the prestigious Wachovia Championship with the lowest score in the tournament's history: Kim inspired by Woods in quest to be the best. Seriously, does the subheadline really have to describe him as a "scrappy little American"?

This week, he's going after the Ryder Cup. The 23-year-old Kim is often compared to Tiger Woods—his professed boyhood hero. Some have gone as far as saying Anthony Kim is The Next Tiger Woods. To which he replies, "Me? The next Tiger Woods? Hasn't there been about 150 next Tiger Woods?"
