Off the Tee: Si Woo Kim Wins Players, Jordan Spieth Struggles, Rory McIlroy Hurt, Local U.S. Open Qualifying
There's another young star to watch on the PGA Tour.
21-year old Si Woo Kim put together four solid days in Florida to win the Players Championship, while some of the top players in the world carded some big numbers.
In this edition of 'Off The Tee', I talk with Joel Harrington, from 4 Deep Golf blog, about the South Korean's big day and why some of the game's best struggled so badly at TPC Sawgrass.
We also discuss:

- Rory McIlroy signs an equipment deal with TaylorMade, re-injures his ribs
