In his first interview since 2012, Anthony Kim called golf “a fond memory of mine” while also refuting rumors that his lengthy absence from the PGA Tour has anything to do with jeopardizing a multi-million-dollar insurance policy he took out in case of injury.

A three-time winner on the PGA Tour and a key cog in the last U.S. Ryder Cup victory, Kim disappeared three years ago at the age of 26 after attempting to restart a career that has been bogged down by a slew of injuries. He has become somewhat of a cult figure as sightings have been rare and rumors have been circulated.

He earned just over $12 million in five seasons on the PGA Tour and says that he saved up more money than people realized. A return to golf is not out of the question according to Kim, but he says that a litany of injuries have continued to hold him back.

If he were to return, he still has a major medical exemption where he would have to earn $613,500 in 16 events to keep his card.
