Clark (blister) may WD from Bob Hope Classic

Sunday, January 23, 2011

HONOLULU – Tim Clark, who surged to a second-place finish at the Sony Open, might have to pull out of next week’s Bob Hope Classic, he told Golfweek late Sunday.

Clark, who shot 66-64 in the 36-hole finish at Waialae Country Club, was limping with a blister on his left little toe late Sunday while practicing on the range for a possible playoff. That didn’t happen, as Mark Wilson sealed his third PGA Tour victory with a 16-under 264 score in the rain-delayed Sony.

Clark plans to fly to La Quinta, Calif., site of the Hope, and then decide whether he can play.

Clark, 35, tied for second in last year’s Hope before winning his first Tour title later in the year, at The Players Championship. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
