"Can I get a mulligan?" Anthony Kim's first tee shot on LIV Golf did not go well

Anthony Kim has a shocker with his opening tee shot during the LIV Golf Jeddah Pro-Am!

Anthony Kim's opening tee shot during the LIV Golf Jeddah Pro-Am did not quite go to plan as the former PGA Tour star asked if he could take a mulligan!

Kim, 38, incredibly came out of retirement this week having spent 12 years on the sidelines through injury. 

It was once expected on the PGA Tour that Kim was going to rise to superstardom just like Tiger Woods.


The widely assumed explanation is that Kim cashed in on an insurance policy worth $15-20m after struggling with injuries. 

Had he continued his career on the PGA Tour that would have been voided. It has also been speculated he didn't enjoy Tour life. 

Kim said ahead of his LIV Golf debut this week: "I will tell my story when it's the right time but right now I'm focused on golf."

The three-time PGA Tour winner and former US Ryder Cup star was announced as LIV Golf's latest signing by CEO Greg Norman on Twitter earlier this week.

Kim will tee up in his first LIV Golf event starting in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, this Friday. 

He is rocking a very different look to the one we last remember with a tattoo sleeve and very laidback dress sense it would seem. 

Kim will be hoping his golf game warms up fast, however, after getting off to a horror start with his opening tee shot in the pro-am. 

He was heard asking for a mulligan!


It is unknown as to how much Kim has been paid for his services to LIV Golf this season.

Kim will compete in all remaining 2024 LIV Golf regular season tournaments as one of two wildcard players aiming to accrue points in the league’s individual standings and earn a team place in 2025.

The American joins season-long wildcard player Hudson Swafford, competing against the LIV Golf League’s 13 four-player teams across the 14-event global schedule.
