KJ Finishes T15 at the World Cup of Golf

He started out his first round with two straight birdies and made another birdie on six. Sadly, KJ bogeyed the ninth shooting a 33 (-2) for the front nine. He then made three straight birdies on 13, 14, 15, but ended with a bogey on hole 18 for a 34 (-2) back nine. Overall, he was -4 going into the second round, tied for second place. It seemed to be an omen for a very positive week for KJ, but that proved not to be the case during round two. Things weren't going the way they were supposed to during the second round.

He started out with a very nice birdie on the second hole, but immediately made double bogey on hole 4. He recovered with a birdie on hole five, but again made bogey on hole six. He then finished his front nine with a bogey on 9 to shoot a 37 (+2). Unfortunately KJ was unable to recover his front nine score and shot a 37 (+1), to shoot a final score of 74 (+3).

Despite his troubles during his second round, KJ was still top 10 on the leaderboard, and still had a shot at winning the individual division of the World Cup. Sadly, a third round of 71 (even) put KJ out of the picture for victory, as Jason Day surged forward into the number 1 spot with a 66 (-5). On the fourth and final round of the World Cup, KJ started with a very shaky beginning with a birdie, two bogies, and a double bogey on the front nine to shoot a 38 (+3), but he managed to slightly recover with two birdies and a bogey on the back to shoot a 35 (-1).

In the end, KJ finished T15 with a total score of +1. Although KJ didn't do as well as he hoped, there were many positive aspects of his game that show signs that he will have a very good 2014 season.
