SPOTTED: Anthony Kim “recent” swing sighting?

Published

on

Anthony Kim, once one of the best golfers in the world, hasn’t played in a PGA Tour event since 2012. Today, he’s only 33 years old, but he’s stuck between a rock and a hard place with an apparent insurance situation. Essentially, if he plays, he allegedly loses a bunch of money. Here’s more on those details.

On the Tuesday of 2018 Ryder Cup week, Instagram user and golf teacher @jamesridyard posted a video of Anthony Kim. The original video description said it was a recent video, but the description has since been updated saying “not my video.” Geez, even the Instagram descriptions about Anthony Kim are mysterious.

When is this video from exactly? We’re working on figuring that out right now. We’ve even tried identifying the model of his shoes to see when they released, but no luck yet. They look like Nike Roshe’s but with Air Force soles? Either way, the video is certainly from post-2012, that we know for sure.

Update: @jamesridyard says the video is “at least two years old” in a recent update of his video description. This news broke the golf internet’s collective heart, but we have to remember, seeing Anthony Kim’s swing from 2 years ago is better than nothing at all.

Check out the post below for yourself…

In case that video doesn’t work, here’s another…

What do you think of Anthony Kim’s “recent” move?

Note: We will update this story when we confirm exactly when this video is from.

    This is `trending’. And has been for two weeks now.

    I saw AK hit balls last night at Woodley lakes range in LA. Watched him chip, putt and hit a large grinding on some moves. Wider stance, didn’t move off the ball as much and was hitting f’ing lasers. I went up to him and complimented his swing, said you look a lot like Anthony Kim. His reply was trying to be somebody. I took a video from behind of him smashing driver…

    Fake news! C’mon Golfwrx. Don’t become like all of the other media outlets that fill spaces with made up stories. Is that what they teach in journalism school now?

    How you gonna name yourself after a gun (AK)… and have a man bun??? (the lines are not original)

    • James

      He didn’t name himself, genius. I get what you’re going for but it doesn’t work at all in this case. Machine Gun Kelly actually gave himself that name, Anthony Kim did not.

    would love to see him play on the tour again, of course.
    but that decision is his, not ours. leave him alone.

    Swings like that are a dime a dozen on the PGA Tour. That man-bun, however, is lit.

    Wouldn’t he have made way more staying on tour?

    Maybe he really was injured pretty seriously?

      It looks like a beautiful and peaceful place, would be nice to go play golf or just sit and relax for while in a good weather. Places like these should be promoted more.

      With all the surgeries he needed and how much he toke out for insuring himself. He is making millions just sitting around. If he comes back , he loses all the insurance money and might not have the same level of success he had originally. It is a huge risk for him he has said before and I don’t think he is 100% sure he can make it out there anymore.

    If you can swing all out as evidenced in this video, wouldn’t claiming insurance money for “not being able to play” be insurance fraud?

    Why not just have a sponsor step up and pay whatever he owes, to stage an epic comeback??

      Because apparently it is like 10mm. You want to volunteer?

    Didn’t he hurt himself after wearing all those oversized and gaudy “AK” belt buckles?

    Anthony Kim sightings are more rare than Big Foot or Loch Ness Monster sightings. If he came back to the tour, it would be the 2nd biggest media frenzy of a comeback on the PGA tour next to Tiger.

    I hope he ended his friendship with whoever told him to file an insurance claim.

    Shoes could be Air force 1 Flyknit? I believe they were released 2017.

    A mountain of talent gone away. This man had the talent to dominate the tour.

    • Jack Nash

      Agree, but maybe not dominate but definitely top 10 material. Strange situation in deed.

    The man bun went out at least 2 years ago. No chance that’s recent.

    Yup that is an old video. He doesn’t look like that any more.

????????Looking for opinions ???????? – – *Quick statement: I don’t give a $hit about pro athletes being allowed or not allowed to take certain supplements. Also think @philmickelson is the man* – – But it seems most of the internet doctors think this is Phil taking CBD. I recently started taking CBD at night to try and aid inflammation and a better nights sleep. Let me tell you, within 30 minutes I am out like a brick ????. I have noticed much better sleep and do generally feel better when waking up. – – SO my question is this, if it is in fact CBD-is there different kinds that I am missing out on for maybe energy/focus? If I took CBD while golfing, I would be sleeping in the cart. Educate me! ???? ???? – – – – – – – – – – – – #cbd #cbdoil #health #wellness #supplements #golf #golfing #golfislife #golfclub #golflife #views #golfgram #instagolf #golfphotos #playorperish #seamusgolf #golfphotography #golfswing #golfgame #fit #fitness #golfwrx #pure #outdoors #sendit #loveofthegame #themasters #tigerwoods #goat

Fun times on a collab with our good friends at Dunning Golf. We combined golfs most technical fabric curated by Dunning, with some good old fashioned leather(Worlds oldest natural technical material). . Our teams took a couple hours to whip these prototypes together and are stoked on the outcome! Keep in mind, these won’t be going into production. These are a teaser of what is coming next!! This was more of a “Rev the engine” test project. . Dunning X Dormie has crafted a serious line of covers and alignment stick covers that will be combined with sick alignment sticks from Bubba Whips! This player package is still under wraps and will be released soon. For now you’ll have to imagine how PURE this next collection will be. Think PURE…TOUR PURE.???????????????? . . #pga #pgatour #collaboration #unitedstates #handmade #halifax #anaheim #gq #instagolf #golfdigest #madeincanada #dunninggolf #mygolfspy #usa #golf #golfdigest #golfwrx #golfchannel #bestcovers #clean #forbes#dunning#bubbawhips

“Pure Land O’ Lakes buttery goodness” I like it.

View this post on Instagram

It only took a couple of rounds to decide – these @benhogangolf irons are staying in the bag! Pure Land O’ Lakes buttery goodness… ???? Of course that means they have to get the full treatment – gloss black paint fill, some @bbandfco flair, and the wedges have to match… so @vokeywedges SM7’s complete the deal. ???? I was so proud that my #witb had finally stayed the same for another season… thanks again @thpgolf for changing that!!! I’ll be doing a substantial update to the WITB blog post soon! . . . . . . #notrunofthemill #golf #?? #golfswag #golfaddict #golflifestyle #handmade #handcrafted #golfishard #liveunderpar #lovegolf #golfporn #golfislife #instagolf #instagood #dropbombs #whyilovethisgame #birdiebomb #libertyballmarkers #minimalistgolf #lessthan14 #thehackersparadise #golfwrx #mygolfspy #pga
