In search of something resembling context, I asked Jones if Kim was playing any golf, even recreationally.

“No.”

LOL.....no coincidence....wouldn't shock me a bit that Hawkins got the idea for the story by seeing this thread back up top..

 

BTW....I am a huge Hawkins fan....maybe the best golf media guy in the business

To quote Rick James, "Cocaine is a hell of a drug."    That's what happened to Anthony Kim.

Well..............that's depressing...

How many of us would kill to have even a sliver of Kim's talent?  It's a damn shame.

On another note, this article really proves just how pathetic golf journalism is. This is not reporting.  This is not journalism.  This is a complete joke.

 

Hawkins (clearly prodded by this thread imo) asks one guy he feels "should know", he gets a shotty half-answer, and then he goes on to you write an article posed as a question as if the real answers are completely unknowable. The guy treats this as if Anthony Kim is living in some distant land, unreachable by any human life form.  Turns out the AK is living in......wait for it......Texas!  My absolute favorite part is when Hawkins basically leaves it up to his "source" to meet up with AK in a few weeks and get back to him with an update.  That's just hilarious.

 

Get on a plane, use your car, follow the story and do some real journalism work.  These guys are way to comfortable getting paid handsomely to attend dinners at golf charity events and asking Tour pros questions they already know the answer to.

 

How can golf grow the game and make it more intriguing to more folks?  How about you follow stories like this that are actually interesting.

Unfortunately Main stream news reports opinion now not news, been that way for a while. If you look back at some of the big news stories that had broke its been from sources such as dead spin, national enquirer and other fringe sources. ( I know what you are thinking Natonal enquirer , but its true they have broken major news stories, through investigative reporting and feet on the street). Golf digest, Golf channel are not exempt from this shoddy journalism and business practices.

"Anything to sell papers" as they say.

Yesterday, at the Wells Fargo, they were interviewing Rory about his first win.  They showed a clip of him sinking a very long putt on 18 in 2010.  His playing partner was Anthony Kim.  It is unfortunate that he has dropped off the grid.  I enjoyed watching him play.

Wait.  Are you saying this from experience?!

RIP Anthony Kim's golf career. He went missing a few months back & hasn't been heard from since. He may or may not be in Rory Sabbatini's garage. I cannot confirm nor deny this.
