News Insights

  • 38-year-old Anthony Kim is set to make an incredible comeback into the world of pro golf.
  • Kim was the youngest player on the winning 2008 Ryder Cup team.
  • He had amassed 3 PGA Tour wins and two top 10 major finishes before his injury hiatus in 2012.
  • The LIV Golf Series has been able to lure Kim back from relative obscurity.

In the modern age, with such scrutiny of every element of a sport star’s life, simply disappearing off the grid is not an option. A decade or so however, Anthony Kim went from being one of the most talked about golfers in the world with punters and international betting sites, to no longer participating in any golfing event. 

However, he looks set for a return to action in 2024, as he has joined the LIV Golf Series. 

Golf remains a sport where young talents are identified at a very early age and for a long time in college sport, Anthony Kim was identified as the next big star within American golf. 
That early promise came to fruition, as Kim played a key part in America’s 2008 Ryder Cup romp over Europe, as he picked up 2.5 points as a 23-year-old rookie in a 16.5 to 11.5 win for the USA. 
However, injuries and a lack of motivation to play the game led Kim to stop playing professional golf in 2012 and his public profile diminished, with rumours abound that he would never play golf again. 
News straight out of left field arrived this week however, as the LIV Golf Series announced that Kim was to be joining their tour with immediate effect and the golfing world waits with bated breath to see how he will fare. 
The Comeback Kim 

Since its inception, the LIV Golf Series has looked for ways to seek out and attract new markets and the acquisition of Anthony Kim has certainly turned a few heads. 
Aged 38 and plucked from relative obscurity, Kim is an unknown quantity, but he has a public profile that transcends beyond the golfing world and his story is a fascinating one.  
Now plying his trade as part of the LIV Golf Series, golf punters and betting sites will be queuing up to see how the next chapter of the Anthony Kim story unfolds. 
LIV-ing on the edge 

When Anthony Kim took his hiatus from the cut and thrust of professional golf back in 2012, very few people would have foreseen him taking a 12-year break from the game. 
A concoction of different injuries led Kim to decide to stop playing professional golf at the age of just 26 and he will need to hit the ground running here as part of the LIV Golf Series. 
Kim remains a prolific ball-striker, who is capable of making any golf course look small – as he did in the 2009 Masters, where he shot the most birdies in a round at Augusta. 
He likes to play risky golf, never taking the safe option and his presence on the LIV Golf Tour will certainly interest a fair few golf-centric online betting platforms. 
How far can Kim go? 

One of the weird caveats facing Anthony Kim here as he joins the LIV Golf Series, is the fact that the American isn’t part of one of the 13 established teams plying their trade on the LIV circuit. 
Kim will be able to focus on competing for himself, getting his own game back up to scratch as he looks to compete with some of the biggest and best in the game. 
With the likes of Jon Rahm, Cameron Smith and Brooks Koepka all producing the goods week in, week out on the LIV circuit, Anthony Kim will need to be at his best from the outset to compete at this level.

Anthony Kim is the latest golfing superstar to make a move to the LIV Golf Series, but his move has been made from golfing obscurity for the past 12 years. 
Now aged 38, the sporting world will be watching with anticipation to see who Anthony Kim fares, as he competes with some of the best in the business in the LIV Golf Series.
