Mic'd up PGA Tour pro Max Homa cracks up CBS analyst with Patrick Reed joke

PGA Tour pro Max Homa caused CBS analyst Trevor Immelman laugh out loud when he appeared to joke about Patrick Reed's famous rules fiasco. 

In case you missed it, Homa was mic'd up for one hole during the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines on Friday. 

Homa, 32, is one of the most well-liked players on the circuit with an outgoing personality. 

Which made him the perfect player for the experiment.

This happened on the par-5 13th hole. Homa rocked a pair of AirPods and chatted with analysts Immelman, Frank Nobili and Ian-Baker Finch throughout the ginormous hole that is 595 yards.

The interview began with Homa talking about how he likes to hit "butter cut" tee shots and thereafter he talked the viewers through his process. 

Homa previously alluded to working on some content ideas with the PGA Tour in the No Laying Up podcast but wouldn't say what. 

We are here for this type of content. 

Homa said: 

"Man, it's a myriad of things [going through my head]. Part, I wish I had your [Immelman's] accent; part, I hope I hit this well; part, what am I going to do after with my kid.
"So, I think it just kind of goes around, but I try to lock in maybe the last minute or so before I hit.
"It's hard to think just golf for five, five-and-a-half hours, so fortunately they give us time to sit here and practice that as I watch Collin [Morikawa] putt up on 13 green."

What happened next?

Homa hit his approach into one of the front bunkers. 

Or so he thought. 

His Titleist Pro V1 was actually in between two bunkers left of the green. 

It was plugged. 

Homa put his hands in the air and said: "I'm not gonna touch it!" 

Immelman found this hilarious and burst out laughing. 

We're sure you remember the aforementioned Reed was caught up in controversy on his way to winning this event in 2021. 

Homa decided not to risk more controversy by deciding not to touch his ball, waiting for the rules official to talk him through his options. 

In the end, Homa was granted free relief. After it was all explained, Homa said: "I'm exhausted". 

Yeah, the rules of golf are a bit complicated at times. 

Homa eventually went on to make a par and was in contention for the final round, but he'll have to catch Jon Rahm
