Kyle Korver has never found himself on a cereal box, but that doesn't mean he is not popular here in the state of Utah. He is so popular that he has been given a unique opportunity.

While we know that Kyle Korver is one of the best 3 point shooters in the NBA, many fans may not know that he can also knock down a long birdie putt on a par 3. Kyle received a sponsor's exemption to participate in this years Utah Open, where he will be competing against some of the best golfers in the state.

"I've only played in one tournament in my life. It was the summer before seventh grade, and I got second," Kyle told KSL. "That's pretty much the extent of my tournament experience."

Kyle feels out of his element by being asked to compete in the Utah Open. However, once he gets past the first shot where his name is announced to the crowd, he feels that he will do alright.
