Round with Kim goes for $25K at charity auction


Anthony Kim isn't playing on the PGA Tour these days, but he's apparently still playing golf and might even tee it up with you - for a price, of course.

Perhaps golf's most puzzling mystery, Kim hasn't played on the PGA Tour since the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship. Musician Toby Keith recently held a charity golf event in Norman, Okla., and a recap of auctioned items from The Oklahoman shows that an "outing" with Kim went for $24,500 on the auction block. Kim played college golf at the University of Oklahoma in Norman from 2004-2006.

After turning pro, Kim, 29, won three times and made appearances in both the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup between 2008-2010. His game seemed to leave as quickly as he arrived, though, as he battled numerous injuries. Kim made only two of 10 cuts during his abbreviated 2012 season before rupturing his Achilles' tendon and subsequently falling off the map.

Kim still has PGA Tour eligibility at his disposal, but he has barely been seen in public in recent years, let alone on a golf course. Kim was spotted at a Las Vegas night club last month, and a report last year indicated that Kim could make in excess of $10 million from an insurance policy if he never plays professionally again.
