Video footage of Tiger Woods discussing Anthony Kim's unique move in his golf swing has resurfaced ahead of the 38-year-old's LIV Golf return.

Tiger Woods' Anthony Kim comments re-shared ahead of LIV Golf return

Anthony Kim was once in Tiger Woods' inner circle but going forward it wouldn't be unreasonable to suggest he is now the golf legend's enemy. 

If Woods' reaction to Jon Rahm leaving for LIV Golf is anything to go by, don't expect the 15-time major champion to be offering a good luck message to the 38-year-old ahead of his return to the game after a 12-year absence. 

Kim will be in the field at LIV Golf Jeddah as a wildcard and, curiosity from thousands of fans will surely make his return must-watch TV. 

It will be his first start in a professional tournament since he withdrew from the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship on the PGA Tour, citing injury. 

Kim's return was teased as you'd expect from LIV quarters: a hype video paying homage to Kim's years in the wilderness.

"For years, the road has lingered in darkness," a voice can be heard saying over clips of Kim in the desert. "This is the rebirth." 

Watch that here:

A number of eagle-eyed golf fans noticed Kim hasn't changed one unique aspect to his swing.

Of course, they were referring to the fact that Kim still likes to choke down on the golf grip. 

Kim used this technique to grip every club in his bag during his brief heyday and it's a rarely-seen move in golf.

Perhaps LPGA Tour pro Brooke Henderson is the only player currently who uses this technique?

For his part, Kim previously conceded during a clinic with Woods that he has always done whatever 'feels right'. 

"I know that sounds pretty basic and pretty stupid, and it is," he said. 

Woods disagreed and previously broke down his thoughts. 

"He's the only player I've ever seen that actually plays pretty much the entire bag choked up," Woods said. 

"It does provide a lot of control; you don't hit the ball as far offline. You hit the ball very straight that way."

He added: "It's amazing that a lot of amateurs don't try and do that.

"They like to grip the club like in baseball, with the pinky off the club because some pros have taught them that if you grip the very end of the club, you get more whip at the bottom."
