From Wiki. In June 2012, Kim had surgery after injuring the Achilles tendon in his left leg and is expected to miss 9 to 12 months

Greetings .... Here's an [URL=http://www.rotoworld.com/recent/gol/1172/anthony-kim]article from Rotoworld-NBC Sports[/URL] confirming his current status. What is not yet known (at least to me, anyway) is how many events Kim will be granted to play in order to keep his 2013 status. The money he earns in those events combined with whatever money was earned in 2012 must be at least equal with the 125th player on the 2012 money list (Keven Chappell, $647,511) One thing I do know is that if his recovery period extends into July of 2013, he will miss starts in all three of the PGA Tour events he's won to date. In the case of two of these -- Well Fargo (aka Quail Hollow) and AT&T; National --- 2013 is the last year he is automatically exempt for those events as a past champion, having won both in 2008. Also, Kim is exempt for the Shell-Houston Open thru 2015 as the 2010 champion. Thanx-A-Lot, Frank-0-Sport (briefly escaping from Facebook and other Internet pursuits)

Until AK gives up the party lifestyle and gets serious about golf, he will be known as just another younger player who had a ton of potential and wasted it.

It doesn't sound like it was partying that is sidelining him at the moment.

I too heard he was a partier.  But I've also read somewhere that he toned partying down considerably.

From the article above, it seems like just health issue at the moment.

My favorite Anthony Kim (Golf Related) Partying story

Kim, a very talented and personable young fellow, has admitted to errant behaviour in the past but he is supposed to have cleaned up his act over the last year. Not so, according to Golfweek (and Robert Allenby).

Allenby said friends here witnessed Kim getting back to the team hotel, in Allenby's words, "sideways" at 4 in the morning, less than five hours before his scheduled tee time against Allenby at Harding Park.

"Some guys (from the U.S.) who didn't play well played very well today," Allenby said after the U.S. downed the International team, 19 1/2 - 14 1/2, to win its third consecutive Presidents Cup. Kim, going out in the fourth match of the day, drummed Allenby, 5 and 3, running his record in the matches to 3-1.

"Maybe we should all take the theory of Anthony Kim," Allenby said. "Get home at 4 o'clock (in the morning) and then go shoot 6 under."

Asked if his comments were on the record, Allenby said, "I don't care. Ask his playing partners. Ask his team. He is the loosest cannon in that team."

For his part, Kim denied he didn't get back to his team hotel until 4am, according to Golfweek.

Said Kim, "He said that today? Wow. That's pretty surprising ... I hope that was a joke."

Told it was not, Kim added, "I'm actually pretty surprised that he said that. I was in tip-top shape coming into today. When you get sat out in a match (as Kim did Saturday morning in foursomes), you're out there to prove a point."

Again Kim denied misbehaving and had this to say about Allenby, whom he beat 5&3 on Sunday.

"He may need to go practise a little bit more."


Ouch. The PGA Tour just loves this kind of public slanging match.

As for the rest of us, we can just be happy the Presidents Cup suddenly seemed interesting for once.

Brutal, not sure how he does it, a hangover does me in. My worst scores of the year were after a long night.

He needs to heal up and lay off the partying then he might be able to return to his previous form. Now as for playing hung over I've had both ends of it I've shot some good score and awful scores but only seems to really reek havoc on my short game.

He got injured, then got injured again during this injury. He'll be back in June-ish. And he will be back, I have faith in my man.

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      No problem.  I'm not tired of responding to sincere and thoughtful posts, like yours, even if it rehashes stuff from before because OF COURSE it is unrealistic to expect people to read 3000 posts before commenting.  In any case I have that quote in a file and it was simple to post it - much simpler and politer than saying "go find it , it's here."  I DO think that one should maybe at least read a smattering of such a big thread before jumping in,   But I have no patience whatsoever with the "I saw Jack play" and "he was nice at a clinic" type posts or posts by people who try to claim some special credibility because of some entirely personal subjective connection.  But that isn't you. As to the rest, you asked for the exact quote and I gave it to you.  If you want to argue with what he said, that is another matter and does not concern me, since my position is that even if we, arguendo, say that the field strengths did NOT get better, Tiger's career was so much more dominant than Jack's that it doesn't matter.  I don't NEED to make a stronger field argument to make the case that Tiger dominated golf in a way and to an extent that no other golfer has ever dominated golf.  And he did it for 15 years (after an absolutely unprecedented career as an amateur) which, IMO, is long enough that it no longevity argument could overcome the sheer dominance advantage his career embodied.   The fact that all that is true in the face of field strength increasing is just icing on the cake.   
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Excellent. Thank you for re-posting that quote. Sorry to hear you're tired of rehashing. Why not just let the thread die then? Is the expectation that folks will read all 272 pages before making a comment? That strikes me as an unrealistic expectation.. I agree the tour is tougher than it used to be. I consider the differences more incremental than astronomical...not the 'order of magnitude' range that seems to come through in some comments. I think Jack is both being accurate in assessing his perception of a shift in quality, but also exaggerating for effect or experiencing present-day myopia at the very least about the money. $100 in 1962 money would be ~ $800 dollars today. Not exactly what I would call bus fare. The 'paltry' $100,000 had the buying power of about $800,000 in today's dollars, which is ~ 60% of today's average purse and ~ 30% of the Players' purse).. Most Americans would happily take an annual salary like that today. They weren't getting ditch digger wages. The prize money even then definitely attracted keen competitive interest. Clearly purses have also grown more than inflation and even journeyman make more in a year than the top 10 in 1962 (below), but it seems about in line with the growth of the population of golfers in the U.S. itself - about triple since Jack's day, Endorsement money has definitely gotten bigger, as the tour and the golf marketplace have developed and expanded over time.   Rank       Player                  1962 $                   2015 $ 1            Arnold Palmer        $81,448                 $639,223 2            Gene Littler           $66,201                 $519,562 3            Jack Nicklaus         $61,869                 $485,563 4            Billy Casper            $61,842                 $485,351 5            Bob Goalby            $46,241                 $362,910 6            Gary Player            $45,838                 $359,748 7            Doug Sanders        $43,340                 $340,143 8            Dave Ragan          $37,327                 $292,951 9            Bobby Nichols       $34,312                 $269,288 10          Phil Rodgers          $32,182                 $252,572
