‘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.

Tiger hitting fairway woods on range at Hero fuels PNC Championship entry speculation

Published

on

To go alongside his first media briefing since his car accident back in February, Tiger Woods was spotted taking full swings with a fairway wood at the Hero World Challenge yesterday.

The Tiger updates have been coming frequently in the past week, and this seems to be another significant development, especially with rumors circulating around his potential involvement in this month’s PNC Championship.

Woods seemed to downplay the idea of him being able to compete with the world’s best again, but perhaps he was just tempering expectations for his latest comeback.

Will Tiger tee it up alongside Charlie for his comeback event? Let us know what you think!

‘This f—ing ripped shirt. Jesus!’ – McIlroy snaps at reporter after question on Dubai shirt incident

Published

on

When journalists see a bite they usually go for it, and whilst there will no doubt be continual questions directed at Tiger Woods after the recent press conference at his own Hero World Challenge, the small field of 20 were never going to get away with it if there was a story to clamp on to.

Cue Rory McIlroy after his recent ‘ripped shirt’ episode, something that perhaps was worth a minor comment at best in Rory’s view. The journalists present at the event didn’t see it that way though.

At yesterday’s presser, one reporter commented, ”Nice shirt, it’s in one piece” to receive the biting comeback from McIlroy: ”It is. Another joke you tried to make that’s not funny.”

Throughout the briefing, the world number 8 gave succinct thoughts on a variety of current issues, including his own form and the Saudi debate, before one more reporter tried their luck by asking what happened to the shirt.

”I went to the pro shop, bought a new one, threw that one in the trash. I mean, this f—ing ripped shirt. Jesus!”

Let’s hope that’s the end of RippedShirtGate, an episode that only heightened the respect many have for the dedication of the four-time Major winner, but one that clearly is generating plenty of interest from media members.

Ratings flop: Bryson vs Brooks fails to attract interest in least-viewed edition of ‘The Match’

Published

on

Despite the public rows and insults, the ‘cartoon’ bravado, Instagram posts and supposed hate, television viewers were simply not interested in tuning in to the recent ‘grudge’ match between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka.

As reported by Bunkered, the 12-hole matchplay that mimicked the 12 rounds of a boxing match, had Phil Mickelson as a star commentator and was plugged to death by TNT, but still less than 635,000 viewers tuned in, a hugely disappointing figure given the previous four episodes of the feature.

The idea became a ‘must’ watch when the inaugural episode featured Tiger Woods and Mickelson in November 2018, whilst each of the following three episodes have also received viewing figures of over 1 million.

At its height, The Match 2 was seen by 5.8million viewers, although that particular game was arranged in May 2020, the height of the COVID pandemic.

Whilst viewers were starved of almost any live sporting action at the time, it remains that a friendly jolly-up between Tiger and Peyton Manning, Phil and Tom Brady still saw nearly 10 times the viewers of a much more hyped game.

The Match 3 (July 2021) had a final figure of around 1.25 million and the recent final round of the CJ Cup, a run-of-the-mill PGA Tour event, also saw a higher Nielsen rating, the figure used to assess television size and composition.

In the end, of course, Koepka won well before the end, winning 4 & 3, and nobody really cared.
