When we last saw Anthony Kim, he was in a Dallas pet store. It was exciting to see the former PGA Tour star out and about, although the location left so many questions. But now he’s been spotted on a golf course and we have all the answers!
OK, not really. All we know is that Kim was on a course with Nancy Lieberman during her charity golf event on Tuesday and that he was helping the basketball legend read putts. We have no clue if Kim was actually playing golf. We still have no clue if he’ll ever return to the PGA Tour. And we might never know what he was doing in that pet store.
For the record, Kim’s Twitter handle that Lieberman tagged has been dormant since the PGA Championship. The PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, that is. And not the 2015 version, but the 2010 one. Yeah, when AK goes MIA, he doesn't mess around.
There was also this photo posted a bit later. Notice how Kim is the only one not holding a golf club. Hmm.
Kim, a three-time PGA Tour winner by 23, is 31 now and hasn’t played competitive golf since the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship. He did his first interview since that tournament last year with the AP’s Doug Ferguson. In it, Kim, who had his promising career derailed by injuries and has been reported to be staying away from the sport due to a large insurance payout, said he hasn’t physically been able to play much golf.
Hopefully, that’s changed in the past 12 months for the breakout star of the 2008 Ryder Cup, the man who led the U.S. to its last win in the biennial event. Come to think of it, Davis Love III still has one more captain’s pick left. . .
