Kim makes Genesis tee time after running to first tee

Kim makes Genesis tee time after running to first tee

The train apparently nearly left the station without Tom Kim on Sunday at Riviera.

A PGA Tour Live camera picked up Kim in a brisk trot to the first tee prior to his final-round tee time for the Genesis Invitational. Kim was scheduled to go off at 11 a.m. ET alongside Rickie Fowler, and with an announcer saying, “Kim is hustling, I mean, high-tailing it to the first tee because his tee time is just moments away,” it appears Kim cut things close.

The PGA Tour had recently seen a player miss his tee time. Lucas Glover mis-read a text and was still in his hotel room with his first-round tee time at the WM Phoenix Open just minutes away. He withdrew from the event and was replaced in the field.

The good news: Kim did make his tee time.

The bad news: He parred the easy par-5 opening hole.
