‘2021 is going to be special’ – Anthony Kim sighting gets golf fans fired up

Published

on

Wherefore art thou, Anthony Kim? At a rooftop in Dallas enjoying life, it would appear.

The latest sighting of the cult legend that is AK has got golf fans wishing once more that a return to golf for the enigmatic Texan could be on the cards, who showed up in a rare sighting over the weekend on social media.

Kim was spotted alongside former coach Adam Schriber on the latter’s Instagram account, accompanied by the caption: “2021 is going to be special.”

As you can see from the above photo, Kim is now sporting a full sleeve tattoo on his left arm, and still looks in excellent physical shape.

As for a return to golf for the man who hasn’t appeared on tour since 2012? It may be a pipe dream, but it is most definitely a New Year’s wish for fans, with the majority of users under the post baying for a return to golf for AK.

Incidentally, it wasn’t the only Anthony Kim sighting over Christmas either. Former Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops was photographed off the cuff at a bar over the holiday period with a stranger…who just happened to be the now 35-year-old Kim.

Nine years may have now passed. But it hasn’t stopped us dreaming.

    This Anthony Kim sightings is getting boring. What exactly did he do for golf? 4 pro wins. No majors. An unfinished career, a bad boy rep and thats about all folks. You rather focus on rickie fowler, at least he’s still playing, still has the major monkey on his back and did I mention he’s still playing, and still relevant on the tour.

    Nice to see an unmasked totally non social distanced picture of Anthony and former coach, what an excellent example to “fans” whilst the USA is being ravaged by Covid. Well done.

    When he’s on the 1st tee of a televised PGA event I’ll get interested. Until then, yawn.

    Love the stoner coach in his Trulieve hoodie. At least he and Anthony have that in common.

    Definitely a “pipe” dream.

    I don’t think AK will be back playing professionally. If he did, he has to pay A LOT of money back to the insurance company that compensated him when he stopped playing years ago.

    I seriously doubt that the vast majority of golf fans out there care about Anthony Kim playing or not.

Justin Rose hits epic shank during round one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational

Published

Hitting a shank is one of the more mortifying moments a golfer can have, and while it may be a common feature in a lot of player’s weekend rounds, it’s not often you get to see one from a pro – but day one at Bay Hill was different.

Justin Rose was the man in question who hit the shank and did so early on day one when faced with a long bunker shot.

Thank’s to PGA Tour Live, viewers tuning into action early on Thursday got to see the shank in all it’s glory, and the epic sound of the ball hitting the hosel is not to be missed.

Rose made bogey on the hole but put the shank behind him and stiffed it from a greenside bunker just a couple of holes later.

Billy Horschel snaps back at heckler at Bay Hill

Published

on

Fans are back this week at Bay Hill, and with it, the odd comment from those outside the ropes to those inside.

On day one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Billy Horschel was the target of a fan who decided that he’d give his expert opinion to the 5-time winner on the PGA Tour, telling him that he had read a putt badly.

Horschel took his time after the shout from the fan but then fired back at him, saying: “There’s a reason why I’m on that side of the ropes, and you’re on that side. I think my talent level is just a touch better.” 

Check out the incident in the video below.

It isn’t the first time the 34-year-old has put a fan in their place at an event either, as one person found out a couple of year’s ago at the Zurich Classic.

Study finds golf fans are the angriest sports fans on social media

Published

on

Hop on to social media during a live sporting event, and emotions are spilling over, but when it comes to golf, the prominent feeling is often anger and frustration.

That is down to gambling, and according to a new study from OnlineGambling.Ca, golf supporters are the angriest on social media, with 42% of all tweets about the sport being classified as an angry comment.

The study also found that cricket and ice hockey fans show the most love for their team, with 38% of their social media posts being filled with love. Basketball fans seem to be the saddest with their teams’ results, with 38% of reactions being unhappy.

If you have ever gambled on golf or been on social media during an event, the results are probably less surprising to those that haven’t!
