Watch: Tom Kim mic’d up for CBS broadcast, birdies 13th hole at 2023 WM Phoenix Open

For the third straight week, CBS had a player wear a mic during its third-round broadcast. This time, it was Tom Kim sporting the AirPod on the par-5 13th hole during the WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

Safe to say he’s a fan of the atmosphere and craziness.

“I wish we had this every week. Not going to lie,” Kim said with a smile on his face.

He’s no stranger to massive and loud crowds. He thrived at the 2022 Presidents Cup for the International team.

Last week, Kim was a part of a foursome that included Jon Rahm, J.J. Watt and Michael Phelps playing a practice round at TPC Scottsdale. He talked about learning from Rahm, who has plenty of experience at the People’s Open., and how Rahm talked with him about which lines to take.

“Jon Rahm makes golf look very, very easy. He’s great. He’s awesome.”

On Friday, he sported a Devin Booker jersey on the par-3 16th hole, appealing to the local fan base.

While mic’d up, Kim talked about having Joe Skovron, Rickie Fowler’s former caddie who was on the bag during Fowler’s win in 2019 at the WM Phoenix Open, and how Skovron has helped Kim since taking over his bag. Kim and Fowler played together on Saturday.

He also discussed with the CBS crew about working with instructor Cameron McCormick.

After hitting the fairway with his drive, Kim proceeded to stick his approach shot to 4 feet for eagle. Kim lipped out the eagle putt but converted on the birdie.

Mic’d up Tom is the best Tom

Two weeks ago, it was Max Homa who was mic’d up. Last week, Keith Mitchell sported the mic. This time, it was Tom Kim, who has quickly become a fan favorite and blossomed as one of the world’s best players at only 20 years old.
