Where's Anthony Kim? What ever happened to Anthony Kim?

Whatever he's doing now, let's hope he's healthy and in a good state of mind. If he is out of the game, I'm trying to think of other pros whose stars shined bright and burned out quickly. The best example I can find is Jodie Mudd: won the Players and Tour Championship in the same year, six major top-tens between 1987 and 1991, then dropped off the face of the earth.

From January 2014:

Noozhawk.com reported today that Anthony Kim is scheduled to appear at a fundraiser on Monday at Sandpiper Golf Club in Santa Barbara, Calif.
The event is a nonprofit foundation created by family and friends of a local girl killed by an alleged drunk driver. Kim will be on hand to conduct a clinic for golfers in the tournament that is part of the fundraiser. It's likely that this isn't the only time he's participated in a community event in the recent past, but this is the first published news on him in some time. Rotoworld was informed by his management firm last March that he was hoping to compete again in "mid to late summer," but it didn't happen. He hasn't played sanctioned golf since the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship due to injuries in his right elbow and left forearm. He then sat out a year after having surgery to repair the Achilles tendon in his left leg. Whenever he returns to the PGA TOUR, he'll have 16 starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $613,550 and retain status. The three-time winner will turn 29 years of age on June 19. Jan 24 - 10:11 AM

I wouldn't get your hopes ups, walking away or partying away from the game, let alone with an injury for a couple of years, there is just too much parity and training involved by all to make a serious comeback likely. There are dozens if not hundreds that have impacted one way or the other where their game goes south just alittle bit......unfortunately that " little bit " is astronomical when compared to the talent now playing. The party is over

It's too bad. From 5th in Fedx points in 2008 and 4.6 Million, to gone in five years. Reminds me of Duval.

Yep. I would be shocked to see him back but he does have a lot of talent. Maybe a little effort could get him back in it but mentally it would be tough.

no Anthony Kim is returning. He is a personal friend of mine and have been for years. He is just making sure he is healthy because when he announces his return he only has 16 starts to earn a little over $613'000... so he is being cautious

Best of luck to him.

I was thinking about Anthony Kim's disappearance a few days ago.  As an Oklahoma State fan, I never really cheered for him much.  But he was great for golf when he was on his game, and he was a big help the last time the U.S. won the Ryder Cup.

And who can forget his 11 birdies in the second round of the 2009 Masters?  Crazy stuff!

Maybe so but what you plan and what really happens are often 2 different things. Stats are against him but I hope he makes it.
