Anyone heard anything on AK?  I followed him and Tiger at the Honda last year.  I'll check AK's Facebook here and there to see if anything is posted, but nodda.  Do we know how is injury/recovery is going?  2013 Tour plans?  Such great talent derailed so quickly.  I enjoyed watching him play.

According to this article from late 2012,  he won't be back until March 2013 at the earliest.

AK's disappointing 2012 season was cut short in July when he injured the Achilles tendon in his left leg while sprinting. He was already shelved with problems in his left forearm and right elbow, but he required surgery on his leg. The prognosis called for 9-12 months of recovery, so the window opens for a return as early as March 2013. However, with a compressed schedule, don't be surprised if Kim takes his time to resume competing. Whenever he does, he'll have 16 starts on the medical to earn $613,550 and retain status

Hoping he returns ASAP, I really like AK, got to follow him at the 2009 RBC CDN Open. He tore it up....pretty sure he birdied 5 of 7 holes to start when I watched him.
Didn't he make 11 birdies in one round at the MASTERS or am I insane? I thought I heard that somewhere.
