After joining LIV Golf, Anthony Kim will play in his first professional event in 12 years next week, in Saudi Arabia.

The 38-year-old American will not be allocated to a team and will enter the 2024 season as a wildcard.

Kim, a former breakout star on the PGA Tour, left the sport in 2010 following a series of injuries.

"The golf world has missed you," said LIV commissioner Greg Norman.

"He oozes incredible talent. The world has seen it in the past and now it is an honour as commissioner of LIV Golf to give the opportunity for this star to be reborn," added Norman. Welcome back and to the LIV Golf family, mate."

Three-time PGA Tour winner Kim will participate in Jeddah on March 1st for the £15.7m prize pool.

The American withdrew from the first round of the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship, marking his final competitive appearance. Since Tiger Woods, Kim was the youngest American under 25 to win two PGA Tour tournaments in the same year in 2008.

During Europe's loss at Valhalla in 2008, Kim, the youngest player on the American Ryder Cup team, collected 2.5 points from four matches.
