The Continuing Story of Christina Kim

On Tuesday, LPGA tour star Christina Kim responded to the death of actor and comedian Robin Williams with this tweet:
If anyone in golf has the supreme right to post on the subject of Williams' death and the general subject of depression, it is Christina Kim.
Golf Digest columnist and noted instructor Stina Sternberg wrote a jaw-dropping article published in December of 2012 about Kim's battle with depression, triggered by a back injury and resulting loss of distance. Among the experts Steinberg cites and quotes in her article are clinical psychiatrist Dr. Michael Lardon, who has worked with six major champions in golf over his 21-year career in medicine and psychology.
As for her game, Christina Kim may be on an upsurge: She has two top-ten finishes this season, is currently ranked 13th in GIR, and is in the top 30 in scoring average and rounds under par. All of this beats her stats from 2012 and 2013.
And while Kim has not written on her blog since August 30, 2012, she has kept busy on Twitter. We refuse to criticize her for not writing on her blog lately, but we do hope she will resume her writing there. Christina Kim is obviously an intelligent, bright, and thoughtful golfer and writer whose comments and musings are worth your time.
Furthermore, we would love to see Christina Kim smash her way into the winner's circle again. And if she is part of the U.S. Solheim Cup team at Sankt Leon-Rot and/or Des Moines G&CC, that's a bonus. Most of all, we simply want the continuing story of Christina Kim to continue.
Please take a few moments to read Sternberg's complete article.
