Anthony Kim Finds That Falling Off Horse Isn't Very Much Fun

by Ryan Wilson

In case you missed it, the HSBC Champions tournament is underway in Shanghai, China and Henrik Stenson currently holds a one-shot lead. Exciting, right?

Okay, not really, and, frankly, I'm not all that invested in the event, who makes the cut and, ultimately, who wins an awesome HSBC-crested number for the lowest four-day total (my best guess at what it looks like).

I'm just mentioning it because Anthony Kim is in the field, even though he recently fell off a freaking horse.

Kim limped around the course after badly spraining his right ankle and bruising his jaw while horseback riding in the last few weeks. He said the horse raised up and as it came down, his mouth slammed shut as his mount hit the ground.

"I don't know what's going on with it," Kim said of his jaw. "I just can't open my mouth very wide."

"My diet is pretty much limited to noodles," he added.

Hmm. Maybe Colin Montgomerie might want to take up horseback riding (or just have somebody punch him in the face if he doesn't want to leave it to chance). A few weeks of a noodles-only diet and several cup sizes later, and I'm guessing Jack Vettriano will be begging to paint his likeness.
