It’s not the start Troy Kelly wanted, but the PGA Tour is a long season.
After missing the cut in last week’s Humana Challenge and carding a 5-over 77 in the first round of the Farmer’s Insurance Open on Thursday, the 34-year-old Central Kitsap grad withdrew from the tournament at Torrey Pines. He told tour officials he was sick, but his dad, Bob Kelly, said this will give him an extra day-and-a-half to work on his swing at his home in La Quinta, Calif., before heading to Phoenix for the Waste Management Open. Kelly Monday qualified into the Phoenix tournament in 2011 and tied for 57th. He missed the cut at Phoenix last season.
