Anthony Kim will miss the rest of the FedEx Cup season to treat chronic tendinitis in his left arm.
Kim has made only two cuts this year and has withdrawn from his last three tournaments. Along with nagging pain in his left forearm, Kim hurt his right elbow when his club struck a rock while he was trying to hit out of a bush at the Texas Open.
He decided to take time off after seeing the same Cleveland doctor who operated on his left thumb two years ago.
Kim says he's been trying to revive his game and has been held back by injuries. Treatment is expected to last four to five months. That gives Kim hope of returning after the Ryder Cup for the Fall Series.
