Cool new story in NYTIMES.

AK would be a needle mover if he ever decides to come back anywhere.

I believe that his off course lifestyle set him up for the direction his career went. He was thrown into the lime light from the get go and the injury albeit a legit one became his crux to not put in the same if not more focus on his game. I admired him coming out and on fire the way he did. Always liked how he would choke up on most of his clubs and be able to fire away as he did. After this long a hiatus, it would probably be good to do some face time and get back unto the golf screen if he really wanted to. He was a talent for sure.

Larson recounted to the New York Times that he spoke to Kim on the phone recently and asked the former wunderkind whether or not he would participate in LIV Golf. Ever since the prospects of a rival league to the PGA Tour were first discussed, Kim's name has been linked to LIV, which has fueled fan excitement about the prospects of seeing the now-37-year-old compete again.

 

 

Here's the quote from Larson:

“He goes, ‘I don’t know, I really don’t know,’ ” he told the New York Times. “I said, ‘Come on, man, get the old clubs out. Go out there and have some fun.’ And he starts laughing at me. He goes, ‘That’s what everybody wants me to do!’ ”

If AK join LIV, they be like selling it for $100 per even like Tyson fights back in the day yo!

I never understood the infatuation with this kid.

 

No one even knows who he is anymore and he seems quite content with his insurance payout and current hiding place; so I highly doubt any needles would be moved.

I think it had to be the belt buckles! 

Seriously though. I’d bet for most the attraction was that he wasn’t the typical cookie cutter PGA pro. He definitely had a personality and an energy about him. Would he make me cough up $100 an event to watch him play on the XVII short tour… I wouldn’t pay $10 for the entire season! Haha

AK destroy Sergio!

 

 

 

While I wouldn’t PPV for AK on LIV, lol, I’d definitely tune in to see what he up to.

Be careful what you wish for.  Fame and fortune is not a panacea for being unhappy; it may be the cause.

I’d sure like to give the fortune part a ride and be proven wrong.  I seem to be happy as a lark on payday and mad as a hornet around tax time.  Correlation or causation?

Not sure Kim coming back would be as simple as LIV just covering any shortfall in future insurance payouts. Surely he'd open himself up to pretty substantial civil (at the very least) claims if he did start playing again.

Why?  I don’t know how the payout was structured, but it seems to me if LIV repays the initial claim the insurance company would be thrilled to have their money back.

Well perhaps if everything previously paid to him was returned. But it would also add weight to the theory the entire claim was bogus which opens up a different can of worms.

He had 3 wins , Camilo Villegas had the same in a short time frame. I'm not sure why there's this idea that he was the next Phil Mickelson or something

A couple of guys on PGA Tour radio (Sirius XM) were talking about AK recently, and they said he was the absolute purest ball striker they’d ever seen.  Whether that would have played out over the long haul we’ll probably never know, but if there’s anything to this, I’d kinda like to see what AK has left in the tank/

Yeah but a guy on WRX recently said he wasn't sure Kim would've kept playing at that level forever, and compared him to guys like Camilo Villegas
