Anthony Kim was so off the grid that he was only ‘vaguely’ aware of Tiger Woods’ 2019 Masters win

April 4, 2024

It’s been quite the week for Anthony Kim revelations. First, he revealed in an interview with David Feherty that he only picked up golf clubs again about three months before his return at LIV Jeddah. Then on Thursday, at his first official U.S. press conference in over 12 years, Kim peeled back a few more layers as the picture of his lengthy absence continued to crystallize.There at Trump National Doral, Kim admitted that he got a “rude awakening” when doctors told him he might not have too much time left. He also said the only time he watched golf over the course of his decade-plus sabbatical was when he was struggling to sleep or trying to take a nap, which helped to explain his most mind-blowing admission:RELATED: CBS to air documentary on Tiger Woods’ 2019 Masters win, first trailer is pure electricityCome again!? We’re not sure what “vaguely” means in this case. Did he know and just didn’t care? Did he hear a few months later? Did he sense a disturbance in The Force? We honestly don’t know, but in today’s age of perpetual connectivity, it’s actually impressive Kim was able to avoid the biggest story in the sport he played professionally for years.It wasn’t just Tiger that Kim missed out on either. Apparently, he also missed LIV compatriot Brooks Koepka’s coincidentally Tiger-like major run between 2017 and 2019.
