Report: Anthony Kim will make his return to professional golf at LIV Golf Jeddah

Anthony Kim is set to make his return to professional golf at LIV Golf Jeddah, according to multiple reports. Rumors have swirled for the past couple months about Kim’s possible return, and Friday night into Saturday morning, reports suggest the three-time PGA Tour winner is returning to professional golf and will play as one of the two individuals on the LIV Golf circuit, March 1-3 at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in Saudi Arabia.

 

Kim, now 38, had surgery on his left Achilles tendon in his left leg following the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship and hasn’t played since, but there have been rumors of his return for some time.

 

 

One of the reported holdups was he would void an insurance policy from his playing days if he returned. It’s worth an estimated $10 million.

 

However, with LIV Golf’s new format including two wild card players, it opened the door for Kim to reportedly play next week in Jeddah. Each event in 2024 will have 54 players (13 teams of four players each) as well as the two wild cards, who will earn points in the individual standings with the potential to earn a spot on a LIV Golf team down the line.

 

Since seemingly disappearing from the golf realm, the legend of Kim has grown. Now, he’s set to return after more than a decade away.

 

LIV Golf Jeddah is the third event of the season. Joaquin Niemann and Dustin Johnson won the first two events earlier this month in Mexico and Las Vegas.
