PGA Tour winner has perfect reaction to being snubbed in fantasy golf league draft

Unfortunately for Michael Kim, he's getting used to getting daggered of late.

In December, it was his girlfriend roasting him for hitting a tee shot in the water. In January, the PGA Tour snubbed him by leaving him off a list of locals playing at Torrey Pines—even though he went to TORREY PINES High School. And on Thursday, his February got off to hot start with another slight.

This time, it came in the form of a fantasy golf draft shared by Golf Magazine's Sean Zak. A fantasy golf draft in which Kim wasn't selected. And Michael noticed. Oh, did he notice.

"The disappointment of not making this list is real," Kim tweeted before adding a laughing emoji and the hashtag #playbetter.

To be fair to those drafting—and, by the way, Team 5 looks to be the deepest IMO—Kim is currently No. 101 in the Official World Golf Ranking. And by my math, 10 teams times nine players comes out to 90 total golfers drafted. Just saying.

But to Kim's credit, if the draft just happened, the 2018 John Deere champ is coming off a T-6 at the American Express and a T-37 at the Farmers Insurance Open where he was in contention heading into the weekend. Also just saying.

Regardless, as always, Kim handled things well on Twitter. And while he didn't get into this week's signature event at Pebble Beach, if he keeps up his recent form, there's always a chance he gets picked up by one of these teams via free agency. Fingers crossed for you, Michael.
