My oh my. This is not the news I wanted to read this morning. A golf channel article, including quotes from Anthony Kim’s agent, was posted this morning and I didn’t want to believe it. A particular quote, which would subsequently be the headline of a CBS Sports article a few minutes later, was the blow to the gut for me. It read:
Anthony Kim is not even playing golf recreationally.
Through various sources on Twitter, I have been trying to find any sort of positive news about AK’s return to golf. I only found negativity. His game is off. He looks horrible. He’s gained weight. There was more. I tried to convince myself that maybe these were untrue, that maybe my favorite Nike Golfer was secretly rehabbing and was inches away from returning to the Tour.
Then today’s headline put that all to an end.
I can still hope to see AK back out there and winning tournaments, but my hope is low. We’ll always have these though.
