LIV golf star posts bizarre motivational message as next event approaches

LIV Golf's Anthony Kim posted a bizarre motivational message on social media on Wednesday as he prepared for the next event in the series next week in Andalusia, Spain.

Kim mentioned in his first post on X that he works harder than a crackhead.

“Good morning. Does an idiot ever let a day go by without finding a way to get high? NO. I would know,” he wrote. “I will not let an idiot pass me today. 1% better today, lessssgoo!!!”

Kim is dead last in the LIV Golf standings. He finished 46th overall in Nashville last month, finishing even through 54 holes. He is 48th in Houston and 53rd in Singapore, all since the beginning of May.

He disappeared from the PGA Tour years ago and his return to the professional league in January was celebrated with great media attention.

The last time Kim competed before joining LIV Golf was the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship when he was 26 years old. He withdrew from the tournament due to injury, which was his third consecutive withdrawal.

A month later, Kim underwent surgery to repair his left Achilles tendon, and was not heard from again in the golf world after that, as many wondered if he would ever return to the course.

Kim also struggled with tendonitis in his left arm and an injury to his left thumb during his 122 starts on the PGA Tour.

In an interview on LIV Golf Plus in April, he spoke openly about his battle with addiction.

“Golf is important to me and not important to me at the same time,” Kim said, according to ESPN. “I've had some very dark moments. I've had some very depressing moments. I've felt very alone, even when there were a million people around me. I had to sort out my thoughts and figure out what my purpose on this planet was.”
