Kevin Kisner's EPIC response to why he plays tournaments he knows he won't win

Kevin Kisner is looking forward to this week's Sony Open at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, as he feels the course is one that suits his game, but why does he bother showing up to tournaments that he thinks he can't win? His answer was brilliant...

The second stop on the PGA Tour's Hawaiian stretch is one that Kisner relishes and we've even tipped him as one of our betting picks to win this week and after hearing his recent interview, we feel even more confident.

"Well, I like that it's a shot-maker's golf course," said Kisner. "You've got to play to certain spots. I think it's Point A to Point B and make some putts. That's kind of my M.O. on the PGA TOUR. So I appreciate when we get the golf courses that play that manner and it's not really see how far you can hit it.

"I appreciate when it's playing firm like this in the fairway. So I think it really brings ball-striking precision into it and a lot of mental game to understand how the ball is going to react when it hits the ground."

It's also an exciting time for Kisner away from the golf course, with his pregnant wife expected to give birth in February, meaning Kisner will miss six weeks of action on tour after he's finished at the Sony Open.

Kisner will miss a few big events and at some exciting venues, such as Torrey Pines and Riviera, but Kisner tends to skip most of the West Coast swing anyway.

The 36-year-old was then asked if he thinks he can win anywhere on the PGA Tour.

"Probably not," he said. "I'm not going to win at Bethpage Black or Torrey Pines."

So why bother showing up at all? Was his next question he faced.

"Because they give away a lot of money for 20th."
