Anthony Kim to make his return at Firestone

July 27, 2010

Anthony Kim, who hasn't played since the Quail Hollow Championship in early May, will return next week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, he announced on Tuesday.

Kim, who had surgery to repair a torn ligament on his left thumb on May 5, announced his return on his Facebook page. "[I] will be back next week at the wgc...looking forward to bein back," he wrote.

He won the Shell Houston Open a month before the thumb injury became too troublesome to continue. He is determined to make the U.S. Ryder Cup team and is still fourth in points, despite his hiatus.
