One prominent national golf writer recently called Ken Kennerly “the luckiest guy on earth.” And that was before the considerable resources of sports conglomerate IMG aligned forces with Kennerly via its April purchase of the Honda Classic.
Kennerly won’t argue the point.

And landing a favorable spot on the calendar at the start of the Florida swing hasn’t hurt, either.
