In an update written by Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press, Anthony Kim remains on the mend following a series of injuries over the last few years.
It's been just over a year since Sports Illustrated chronicled AK's well-being and whereabouts, but the golfer himself wasn't quoted in that story, which cited insurance protection well into eight figures if he didn't play golf again. "I paid well into the mid-six figures for the policy," Kim told the AP. "[The carrier] wouldn't have paid me every month had I not been to the doctors, showing them all my X-rays, doing all the treatment, the acupuncture, twice a day for physical therapy." Simply, his body isn't yet ready for the PGA TOUR. "I'm going to step away from the game for a little while and get my body pieced together. ... I've got so much ground to make up from injuries — rotator cuff, labrum, spinal fusion, hand injury. I've had six or seven surgeries in the last three-and-a-half years." Whenever/If he returns, Kim will have 16 starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $613,550 and retain status.
