    Anthony Kim hasn't been seen on the PGA Tour since May 2012, withdrawing from the Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina after a first-round 74. That Thursday, he cited injuries to his right wrist and elbow, as well continued pain in a surgically repaired left thumb. He said he would review his options and consider competing in The Players Championship the next week. 

    Kim chose not to play. Then he tore an Achilles and hasn't been heard from since. Two-and-a-half years later, what happened to Kim remains an unsolved mystery. 

    However, a Golf.com report suggests that according to a friend, Kim is safe and healthy enough to play. So why isn't he playing?

    Kim reportedly took out a $10 million insurance policy against career-ending injury that could be worth at least $10 million tax free , if not more.

    If Kim returns to the PGA Tour in any capacity, the policy is void and he would lose the money on what amounts to a lifetime disability plan.

    According to the Golf.com story, Kim told a friend, "If I take one swing on Tour, the policy is voided."
