Anthony Kim spotted at another charity event

Anthony Kim sightings have been rare since the former superstar disappeared from the PGA Tour four years ago, but the 31-year-old three-time Tour winner was spotted twice this week at charity events.

On Monday, former pro basketball player Nancy Lieberman tweeted this picture out of Kim playing at her charity golf tournament in Plano, Texas.

Then on Friday, the Oklahoma men's golf Twitter account sent out this photo of Kim at the annual Sooner Open.

Before turning pro in 2006, Kim spent three years at Oklahoma. He won three PGA Tour titles and was the star of the victorious 2008 U.S. Ryder Cup team before injuries and surgeries derailed his promising career.

Last year, Kim broke his silence in an interview with the Associated Press. He didn't rule out a return to professional golf, but Kim said a lot of his time is spent doing physical therapy.

''I'm going to step away from the game for a little while and get my body pieced together," Kim said. "Instead of going from an Achilles injury to try to go 180 mph and not fixing the problem ... 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.''
