PHOTO: You won’t believe which golfer is in this picture

Anthony Kim was known as one of the better recovery players and streaky putters in the game. His two best performances arguably came at the 2008 Ryder Cup and the 2010 Masters where he finished third and had the record for most consecutive birdies in a single round at Augusta.

Well, AK was spotted at the Omnia Night Club in Las Vegas a couple of days ago. Thanks to an Instagram user, the picture below was taken.

It's super rare to be out with @ricksalomon and golf great @Anthony Kim

I’m actually quite surprised AK was willing to take the picture. Because he has been extremely secretive about his life in the last couple of years and didn’t seem to want anyone to know what he was doing.

It’s gotten so crazy that we’re actually making a big deal about a picture that he was in. But there’s a reason for it because the man has been anything but visible the last couple of years after he was once looked at as one of golf’s bright young stars.

He had a swagger to him, his microwave style of play was big and he was just Mr. Cool. I definitely thought that after his impressive performance at the Masters in 2010 that he was officially getting into his prime.

Then he started getting quieter and quieter and quieter and nobody noticed. It just seemed like he was slumping and that happens to many good players.

Then it just seemed like he was no where to be found. Until now.

Personally, AK was one of my favortite players on Tour. Loved the combination of game and swagger that he had. It’s nice to see him in the spotlight again.
